13th February 2015 Print

As reported by Lloyds Bank Britain at Home report, our childhood home had a number of spaces that we are seeing much less frequently today, such as single purpose rooms, which could be a utility or drawing room. With modern homes now focusing on open plan and multi-purpose spaces, we are finding that many of these traditional aspects of the home are disappearing. Because of this 28% of homeowners still call their childhood house ‘home’, and 43% agreed their current home is not their ‘dream home’.

Luxury property developer Millgate recognises the nostalgia for traditional rooms, and resurging the features of a ‘childhood home’ back into the unique five bedroom house at Kingsworthy, in Kingswood, Surrey. Now beautifully dressed as a show home, complete with orangery, drawing room, utility room and a study potential purchasers will now be able to view this stunning property, perfect for those looking for their dream family home.
