Millwood Designer Homes’ Sales and Marketing Director, Philip Brown, discusses why downsizing shouldn’t mean compromising on style and specification.

One of the most common reasons for downsizing is the convenience of running a smaller home in retirement, however many buyers associate this move with compromise. At Millwood, this is not case and we make sure that our smaller properties still provide the style and high-quality specification for which Millwood is renowned.

There are many benefits in downsizing to a new build home, not least of which is releasing equity from their previous property as well as saving time and money on the maintenance cost of a new home as opposed to a second hand or period home. Downsizing to a new build property is more environmentally friendly. CO2 emissions are reduced through the installation of efficient boilers and gas appliances, while water saving systems and quality insulation help to reduce utility bills.

At Millwood, we always go above and beyond to ensure our homes are of the highest standard. Although each and every home offers a unique exterior design, size and style, all share an unrivalled internal specification. The size of the property does not mean sacrificing on specification, every detail is thoughtfully designed and carefully selected to appeal to our discerning customers.

For those looking for lower maintenance or a simpler way of life, we have a variety of properties available, perfect for downsizers who are looking for a new build home with less upkeep and lower maintenance or a better fit now that their children have flown the nest.

A beautiful selection of homes are currently available at Windsor Meadow in Marden, Polo Field in Canterbury, Cherry Tree Lane in Ewhurst, Surrey, Coppice End in Crowborough and The Glebe in Storrington, Sussex.
