Persimmon Homes is offering an unusual option for anyone running their own business - a collection of live/work units at its Scholars Place development in Ashford, Kent. The ‘Cheshunt' three-storey units are priced from £224,995 and combine a stylish three-bedroom residence with a separate ground floor commercial space.
These properties are ideal for anyone running their own business who wants to keep their home life and work life separate. The ground floor is divided into two separate work areas and also has a cloakroom and utility room. The work area can be locked and kept completely independent from the two upper storeys, which feature a kitchen/breakfast room with Juliet balcony, living/dining room, en suite master bedroom, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
One major advantage for sole traders and small businesses is that it eliminates the need to pay extra for business premises or towards commuting. The units have planning permission for Class B1 and Class C3 use, so would be suitable for designers, architects or a hair/beauty salon. The buyer must have a business that meets the planning criteria and only run it from the ground floor.
Persimmon Homes is providing a mix of homes with from one to five bedrooms at Scholars Place, which is part of the larger Repton Park development in the north of Ashford. Prices currently start at £117,995 for a one-bedroom flat and at £239,995 for a four-bedroom house. The town has been buzzing since it was selected as a major hub for the Eurostar and High Speed rail network and with the M20 skirting the town, it is well connected for destinations in Kent and beyond.
The town has an ever-growing roster of shops and leisure amenities, including two large malls, a designer outlet, numerous high street and independent stores and a host of cafés, pubs and restaurants. There's also a nightclub and multiplex cinema. It is also well known for some quality schooling.
Scholars Place is open seven days a week, from 10.00am to 5.00pm, and the Persimmon Homes team is contactable during those hours on 0844 490 0127.
