Posted 14 July 2021 by Keith Osborne

Family buyers in Suffolk with a range of children's ages might find an ideal flexible house type at Marham Park in Bury St Edmunds...

For blended families with both older and younger children, it’s ideal to provide some separate places but also flexible family areas to reconvene and spend quality time together – and David Wilson Homes believes its three-storey homes at Marham Park could be the answer.

The benefit of a three-storey home is the versatility of the rooms to adapt with the changing needs of a modern family over the years. Annette Hurst, sales director at David Wilson Homes Eastern Counties, said: “For blended families wanting to move home but are finding it hard to compromise, our three storey properties at Marham Park are the perfect solution to make sure everyone is happy. With rooms to suit little ones as a playroom, older teens as a games room or for parents as a lounge to relax after a day’s work, there is flexibility for both quiet moments alone and lively family time together.”

House-hunters at the Bury St Edmunds development will find a few three-storey house types to consider. On Plot 133 is the ‘Hertford’. It’s a double-fronted detached house which comes with a private driveway and a full turfed garden.
