Buying a home for your family


Whether you’re planning a family, expecting a baby or already have children, house hunting becomes that little bit more complicated. It is of course an exciting time, but your checklist becomes much longer, and if your friends already have children, they’re likely to be adding to the list of things you should look for or avoid.


There are more things to consider, from the size of the home itself to the location, local schools, transport links, parks and the local community. All Fairview New Homes’ homes are designed to make the most of space, something that’s really important when you have children. Storage, room to play, that extra bedroom for guests.


When considering the location of a new home, it’s important to keep in mind that as your family grows, your needs will change too. If your children are of pre-school age, what are the primary schools like? Are they walking distance or easy to get to by bus? Are the secondary schools close too?   


What’s the local community like?  Is it a great place to raise your children? Is there access to parks, shops?  Is it thriving? If there is a regeneration going on, what will it look like in five years’ time? Will it be somewhere you can see yourself living?


We’ve chosen three of our developments that are proving popular with young families.


Feltham 355 is one of the newest developments, launching in April 2020. Adjacent to the river, with plenty of green open space, this development is ideal for families. There is a selection of apartments, one, two and three bedroom, all offering buyers

contemporary living and a high quality specification in a spacious, open-plan layout.


The development has 72 apartments and outside are landscaped grounds and communal gardens, including a play area and cycle parking. 


Feltham 355 lies around the corner from an array of supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and cafes, plus a gym, cinema and bowling alley. The development is also in close proximity to a good selection of Ofsted-rated schools for all ages, including several nurseries and primary schools, as well as a number of secondary schools, including the ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted-rated Reach Academy Feltham.


Synergy launched in November 2019 and this Charlton development has a selection of one, two and three bedroom apartments and four bedroom houses. Everything about Synergy has been designed with the buyer in mind, and that includes families, from the spacious four bedroom town houses with contemporary finishes designed over three floors, to three bedroom apartments with plenty of storage and open-plan living areas. With a great range of schools nearby, plenty of parks and open spaces to enjoy and being well connected to the Capital, it’s the perfect place to raise a family.


Queensbury Square launched at the end of February 2020 and this North London development of one, two and three bedroom apartments is already attracting buyers who are looking to be a part of the multi-cultural, friendly community where it sits. The larger apartments offer the best of open-plan modern living, and the location of the development means that buyers will have access to a vibrant cultural location, surrounded by plenty of amenities, green parks and great transport. For schools, there are a range of Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ local schools providing a great selection for children of all ages.
