COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our lives. As priorities shift, we reflect on what we believe buyers will be looking for when choosing a new home.

A sense of community

Isolation has been one of the main struggles we’ve faced during lockdown, and many of us have realised how important it is to have the support and closeness of a tight-knit community. The Ashfield Partnership is committed to building new homes and spaces that work together to become places that are cherished by residents.

Creating thriving communities is at the heart of everything we do, and we believe that our new build developments are truly special places to live. We are always striving to create places that make sense, where people want to live and work – not just today, but for generations to come.

Clean, green spaces to walk

Life in lockdown may be stripped down to the very basics, but one thing that’s helped us to break up the days has been getting outside for a daily walk. This has taught us that access to beautiful open spaces where we live isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.

Each of our new build communities is designed around vibrant open spaces that provide a place for exercise and play.

More space

When we’re spending most of our time at home, lack of space quickly becomes more noticeable. Some of us might wish we had a bigger dining area to enjoy family meals. Others may struggle with carving out a dedicated space to work from home. Those of us without a garden may have come to realise that we would really benefit from our own private outdoor space.

For a lot of us, our homes have become our entire world. That’s why it makes sense that searches for new homes are going up, and that what’s important to us when choosing a place to live has changed.


The Ashfield Partnership comprises The Ashfield Estate and three local housebuilders, who all share the same commitment to creating homes and communities that will be cherished by residents for generations to come.
