At Altin, we’re committed to building luxury houses, the perfect family home and creating communities.. We work tirelessly to create homes that are not only stunning to look at but a joy to live in.
Families looking for their next home will have a few non-negotiables when house hunting. However, it can be hard to separate the ‘nice-to-haves’ from the ‘must-haves’.
To help you out, here is our list of those key elements:
1. Location, location, location
Location will often be the first thing you look at when searching for a new family home.
You can change a lot of things about the look and feel of a home but there is little you can do about its location.
Families with children should focus on local amenities, such as schools and parks. You can use online tools, such as the Rightmove School Checker, to discover school catchment areas and work out commutes.
We consider location carefully and all of our Altin developments are situated in the most desirable areas of Greater Manchester and Cheshire.
Our upcoming project, Waterbank, is located in Prestbury, and we spoke about the highlights of the village in a previous blog.
2. Letting in the light
Natural light is key to your home feeling airy and bright, even during the most frantic hours of the day.
Increased sunlight in the home has several health benefits but can also help you run a more sustainable house. A well-lit house requires less reliance on artificial lighting and heating – reducing your energy bills at the same time!
All six properties at Bank Farm Grove – our bespoke family development in Holmes Chapel – are designed to maximise space and optimise natural light. Each home has classic dormer windows, modern bi-fold glass doors, and glass Juliet balconies to invite the sunshine in.
3. Staying connected
We tend to assume that good broadband is a guarantee at any modern property. However, it is important to check as rural and semi-rural locations can have some difficulty keeping up with the speeds of more built-up areas.
4. Hiding the clutter
Families can collect a lot of things as the kids grow. From toys and school supplies, to remnants from abandoned hobbies. Moving house gives you the chance to declutter, but we all know how quickly things can accumulate.
Storage space is key to keeping everything tidied away. The master bedrooms at all our Bank Farm Grove houses feature a walk-in wardrobe and are designed to maximise space. This allows for plenty of storage, whether it’s for the kids’ collectables or your own.
5. Garden space
The garden is an extension of the home and can be transformed for each member of the family. It can be a soft surface for little ones to start walking on, a football pitch for your budding Marcus Rashford and an evening sanctuary for parents.
We work with multi-award-winning landscape architects and long-term collaborator, Barnes Walker, to design perfect family gardens across our developments.
Their experience means they know the importance of security and privacy for family gardens. All gardens at Bank Farm Grove are fitted with timber fencing and matching gates to provide peace of mind.
If you’re still on the hunt for your dream family home, there’s one property left at Bank Farm Grove. You can view the Bank Farm Grove brochure here.
