The Home Office
For many of us, working from home is the new norm. Here's a selection of properties with home offices currently available across the region.
‘Working From Home’ – a phrase often scoffed at by office dwellers, who quietly doubted that their home-based colleagues ever got dressed - spending their days drinking coffee, pottering and answering the odd email.
Well that’s changed in the past couple of months, with many firms having switched to partial if not entirely remote working. But where to work? I know that within Symonds & Sampson, colleagues are working working from spare bedrooms, dining room tables, garden sheds and even a caravan; virtual meetings by video are the new norm. For many this will be a long-term change.
So, what could be better than a home office, and here is a small selection of properties with offices or space for offices currently on the market through Symonds & Sampson.
Stocklinch, Ilminster. Guide £520,000. Bursting with character, this Grade II Listed 4 bedroom house comes with a home office AND artist’s studio. Nearest station Crewkerne, 7 miles.
Poole, Guide £725,000 A stunning Italian style villa with 4/5 bedrooms over 4 floors. The study is currently on the 2nd floor, I think I’d have to leave it there as I’d get no work done at all if I had this incredible top floor view! A short walk from Parkstone station.
