Whether you are looking for your first home, moving up the housing ladder or downsizing – space is one of the key factors in any purchase.

For some people it is the kitchen that must have space, others want open plan living to entertain, families often prioritise outside areas and teenagers love the idea of their own space.

Five-star housebuilder David Wilson Homes has space at the heart of its designs – something which sales director Michelle Storer says has proved a successful formula at its developments in Purbrook, Clanfield and Havant.

‘Gone are the days when people judge a new home purely on the number of bedrooms,’’ said Michelle. ‘Nowadays buyers are more discerning and they put use of space, quality of design and build and location above everything else.’’

She said the key is providing homes which cater for modern day living and that means free-flowing space and quality in everything from light and airy designs through to energy efficient appliances.

‘Homes in the past were simply not designed for modern living,’’ said Michelle. ‘People want carefully-planned design and functionality – not just lots of rooms that don’t really work, above all they want to be comfortable.’’

She said research by the five star housebuilder had revealed the importance of space to buyers of all ages and its homes are designed specifically to meet the needs of modern day living – and their changing priorities during the time they live there.

‘Our homes have lounges which are large enough to entertain family and friends, particularly popular with Christmas approaching, we have spacious kitchens with the very latest appliances, many with breakfast and family areas and built-in storage. We also recognise the importance of creating separate areas for different family members and offer luxurious ensuite bathrooms and homes with separate studies offering flexible living for those working from home,’’ said Michelle.

Buyers also have the opportunity to stamp their own individual mark on a blank canvas from day one with the David Wilson Homes Expressions range of options.
