Work From Home With a Move to the Final New Home in Desirable West Didsbury

Buying a property with an extra bedroom to be used as a study could be the ideal solution for home workers

With more people than ever working from home, moving to a property with room for a study – like the final home at Derwent Court in South Manchester – is an attractive prospect.

Research by Dynata found that 74% of people in the UK want to work from home at least some of the time, with 15% want to make the switch from commuting to telecommuting permanently.

Conveniently close to Manchester city centre and with flexible accommodation set out over three floors, the final home at Derwent Court offers the ideal solution.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “Whether you work from home permanently or occasionally, it’s important to have somewhere you can work without distraction. The final home at Derwent Court has four bedrooms, but if you only need three and want a dedicated study you could use one of the top floor rooms as a workspace. Plus, for those days when you need to go into the office, there’s a Metro Link stop nearby meaning you could be in Manchester city centre in around 35 minutes including walking to the tram.”

Priced at £549,995 the semi-detached Byron with integral garage, offers 1,808 sq ft of well-thought out living space.

The open plan kitchen, dining and family room optimises the potential of the ground floor, with bi-fold doors leading out onto the rear garden.

The lounge is on the first floor, along with a master bedroom boasting a dressing area and en-suite.

The remaining three bedrooms and family bathroom are on the top floor.

“Now more than ever homes are under pressure to perform with changing lifestyles and to evolve over time. The properties at Derwent Court are ideal as they have a spacious kitchen, dining and family room on the ground floor, with flexible space on the remaining floors,” Marie added.

“Our buyers have invented their own uses, from a nursery, a luxury dressing room, a gym or just an extra bedroom.  And with a cloakroom, en-suite or bathroom on every floor, buyers can effortlessly reinvent them whenever they need to.”

Derwent Court is an intimate collection of just 13 homes.

With the final property now on sale, Elan is offering a lifeline to homeowners who may fear missing out while they secure a buyer for their current house.

Part exchange gives homeowners the reassurance of effectively having a guaranteed cash buyer for the property they’re moving from. Typically they should be able to exchange contracts in just 28 days.

Alternatively, Elan’s EasyMove scheme enlists an independent agent to secure a buyer for the customer’s property, with the homebuilding paying the agent’s fees in full.

Derwent Court is open by appointment only, with social distancing measures in place. To find out more about the final home available or to make an appointment, call 0161 820 5198 or see the website
