Working from home makes sense both financially and time wise. To be able to cut out the cost of travel to and from business and to gain the extra time that is spent commuting could make a dramatic difference to your life style.

At Scholars Place, Repton Park, St Henry Brackenbury Road, off Chart Road in Ashford, Kent. TN23 3HX Persimmon Homes has built a number of three storey properties where the ground floor has offices suitable for a wide range of business uses.

Each property has a private garden, parking and spacious residential living. The bonus is in the ground floor where there are two offices/work spaces plus utility room and cloakroom. This “work from home” designated area also has front and rear private access plus direct staircase to the hub of the house.

The houses have a modern exterior with a Juliet balcony from the master bedroom. On the first floor there is a 17 foot fitted kitchen with ample space for breakfast table, plus an 18ft by 17 ft living room. There is also a cloakroom on this floor. The 2nd floor comprises master bedroom with en suite facilities, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The ground floor has a good sized working area with high ceiling and floor to ceiling window making it a most pleasant and light room in which to operate.

The square footage of the front office is 210.97 sq ft and the back office is 105.49 sq ft.  The two work rooms come with B1 and C3 (A, B and C) business use. We understand that there may be some flexibility on usage of the ground floor area in terms of business use and this can be ascertained by contacting the Local Council.

The take-up on these specialist homes has been good and now only three units remain.

“Those who have already launched in business have chosen a wide range of uses from  a Lettings office to a nursery, so there is ample scope to set up a work from home occupation” says Jo Richards, Head of Sales and Marketing.

Ashford has two shopping malls and a Designer Outlet plus cafes, bars and restaurants added to which there is a 12 screen cinema and a nightclub.  Ashford is a commuter’s paradise with Ashford International providing fast train access to central London and Europe. Gatwick and Heathrow airports are also easily accessible via M20/M25/M23.

Scholars Place, Repton Park has a local Waitrose supermarket and retail park. There is a good choice of schools from which to choose.
