Three-storey love story

Three-storey properties are growing more popular and although most three-storey buyers did not deliberately choose a three-tiered home initially, nearly two thirds of those that own them now adore their extra floor, a new study has shown. National house builder Redrow, surveyed around 1,000 customers living in both two and three-storey properties, and found homeowners could list a wide variety of advantages for a property with more floors. Most three-storey homeowners questioned said that they use the space for extra bedrooms - with some exploiting the chance to give older children more independence by living upstairs. Some homeworkers said it allowed them to create a specific office space away from family life. Other reasons given were an increased level of privacy and the opportunity to be flexible with their internal layout.Modern home units tend to be increasingly unconventional, with combinations of step-families, different familial generations and friends all sharing the same roof, meaning that flexible living space is in high demand.Simon Bennett, group marketing director for Redrow, commented: "Living spread over three floors today is a contemporary solution to modern day life, and we've found that buyers at all stages of the property buying ladder appreciate its appeal - from young families right through to 'empty nesters'."The majority of both two and three-storey owners agreed that three-storey properties are more value for money, explaining why 75 per cent of current two-storeyers said they were attracted to the idea of adding a third floor to their home.
