Once among the most popular house types in Britain, bungalows present the perfect property for retirees looking to downsize in to a more convenient living space. Research from Rightmove has shown that in 73 per cent of the UK’s major towns and cities, bungalows account for less than 10 per cent of all houses currently on the market today. Helping to ensure that buyers can find a home that caters to their needs, Spitfire Bespoke Homes offers a selection of elegant dormer bungalows and cottages, exclusively available for the over 60’s, at Jardin in the idyllic village of Binfield, Berkshire.
Providing a quality option for empty nesters, the collection of just six homes offers downsizers the opportunity to trade in their larger home, whilst not compromising on an exception level of specification. Situated within a private estate in the original kitchen garden of Binfield House, Jardin is a private collection of 24 unique homes, ranging from two to five-bedroom properties. The homes feature traditionally styled red brick, white window frames and cottage style painted hardwood front doors.
Ideal for the over 60’s, this beautiful new community offers the best in luxurious living accompanied by low maintenance. Appropriate for its garden setting, residents at Jardin have access to beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces. As well as a private garden for each house, there is a communal garden, exclusively for the over 60’s residents, which features a picturesque pond with benches, providing a tranquil place to sit and socialise.
Richard Page, Sales and Marketing Director at Spitfire Bespoke Homes comments: “Historically, bungalows were one of the most popular house types in Britain and still remain a favoured choice amongst older UK home buyers, searching for a more flexible and convenient way of living. Despite the lack of bungalow styles in many areas of the UK, we have seen a great demand from a variety of buyers for our striking dormer bungalow and cottage style properties.
At Jardin, we hope by providing this specialist product exclusively to the over 60’s, we can help persuade and encourage downsizers. Buyers looking to trade down their existing property, do not have to compromise on a high-quality specification because they are moving to a smaller property.”
