The Barratt Homes team sees the benefits of the four-bedroom houses at Lyveden Fields for many house-hunters...

As the UK continues to spend more time at home due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the need for more space has become a top priority for Northamptonshire property seekers, and Barratt Homes is providing these house-hunters with a more hassle-free approach to moving.

The developer is highlighting in particular its Lyveden Fields development located in Oakley Vale, Corby, where there are a number of four-bedroom homes available that will suit those looking for more space. To help out those who are on the fence about upsizing, Barratt Homes is offering advice on how to know when is the right time to make a move.

A growing family

Whether you have a little one on the way or are planning for the future, a larger home can give your family the space it needs to grow. An extra bedroom can be used as a nursery for a new arrival, or a playroom to keep kids toys in to help avoid clutter.

Cramped space

Are there always fights over who gets to use the shower first? Are you always bumping into each other? If so it might be time to expand to a bigger home. With many Barratt’s properties featuring en suites and some benefitting from numerous family bathrooms, upsizing can cut out the daily bathroom bickering.

Lyveden FieldsA place to unwind

As your family grows and gets more hectic, private space for a bit of ‘me time’ can be hard to come by. Looking for a property with a separate study, spare room or a master bedroom on the top floor away from the hustle and bustle of the house is ideal for those wanting an area to relax.

Entertaining guests becomes a struggle

If you’re excited to have friends and family over for dinners and parties once the pandemic is over, but think you will struggle for the room to comfortably entertain them, it might be time to upsize to a home with enough space for your guests.

A large open-plan kitchen is an ideal hub for entertaining, especially as many of Barratt Homes’ properties feature French doors leading to the rear garden meaning you can bring the outside in and spread out your party.

Alison Raine, sales director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “Moving up the property ladder can seem like a challenge, but it is sometimes it is also necessary.

“Buying chains and estate agent fees can cause a lot of stress, but our sales team will work hard to make your move both possible and smooth. Speak to them about our popular Movemaker and Part Exchange schemes which can help to make your moving process quick and simple.”

Located on Livingstone Road in Oakley Vale, Lyveden Fields benefits from a wide range of excellent, established amenities such as great schooling options within walking distance and trains to London St Pancras from Corby train station in just over an hour.

The development is perfect for family living, with days out just a short drive away including Deane Park and Rockingham Castle. Lyveden Fields also benefits from lots of open space which is ideal for children to play outdoors safely. Prices currently range from £321,995 to £415,995
