The rise of the early downsizers
Storey Homes highlights the trend of early downsizing from the family home to a more manageable property. Apartments at The Limes in Ampthill, Bedfordshire enable homeowners to downsize from their family home without compromising on style or comfort and enabling them to enjoy luxuries such as travelling.
This popular move by many downsizers has already been seen at the apartment development at The Limes, whereby the average age of new residents is 55.
Mark Storey, Director of Storey Homes describes how “downsizers are a strong force in the property market today – I believe the need for a smaller property that is concise, comfortable and secure is more important.
“Choosing to leave the family home of 20 or 30 years can be a difficult move – but with the many storage solutions and security found at the The Limes, the apartments provide the necessary accommodation needed for a new lifestyle.”
Often, many homeowners take the opportunity to declutter from the family home and focus on the important things they use each day instead. This makes for a bright living space in the modern housetype. Situated in a leafy and predominantly residential area, The Limes offers modern sophisticated living with high specification both internally and externally.
