With working from home becoming a long-term reality for many people in Derbyshire, Barratt Homes is urging homebuyers to take a look at its developments in Buxton for flexible homes in a peaceful location.

The developer currently has a range of three bedroom homes available at Heathfield Nook and High Peak Meadow with an abundance of space and a scenic countryside outlook.

Research from Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) shows that 40% of employers reported that 75-99% of their workforce is now working continuously from home[i].

As a result, two in five workers, out of 3,000 surveyed, said that a suitable space to work from home is important when searching for a new property and 72% of regular home workers said that they customised their workspace[ii], meaning that a dedicated workspace is needed.

Property seekers looking for a new home that ticks all of the boxes post-lockdown should look no further than Barratt Homes’ Burlow Road developments.

Michaela Lancaster, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Manchester, said: “Lockdown has been a massive change for most, with home schooling and home working and this is changing people’s views on how and where they want to live.

“A home office and outdoor space is high on the list of priorities for a lot of buyers since the pandemic and our properties at our Buxton developments do not disappoint.”

Enjoying both village and rural life, Buxton is ideal for lovers of countryside and culture alike with the Peak District National Park on its doorstep and there is also an opera house in the centre.

Recently, figures from Zoopla stated that the High Peak in Derbyshire had seen an increase in sales by more than 30% since the Coronavirus pandemic as homebuyers are flocking to the countryside in pursuit of a different way of life[1].

The Barratt Homes developments based in Buxton have been designed with the local area in mind and have been built using stone and modern building techniques to deliver energy efficient homes that reduce running costs and help the environment.

High Peak Meadow and Heathfield Nook are now open on an appointment only basis, to find out more visit or or call 0333 355 8474 to book an appointment with a Sales Adviser.
