Your Next Family Home

It is back to school time…

…and if you are a parent of school-age children, that means new uniforms, PE kits, checking the school shoes still fit and (dare we say it?) a general sense of relief! If your children are younger, you still have all this to come. However, no matter what stage of the parenting journey you are at, parents will all agree that when it comes to choosing a place to live, it is of utmost importance to choose somewhere children will feel safe and happy.

At Allison Homes, we have built enough houses to know what makes an ideal family home. First and foremost is a good location, and we scout out the very best sites for our developments based on fundamental factors such as local natural beauty and air quality, crime rates, school provision, and local services and amenities.

Our extensive experience as a home builder has also helped us to understand how modern families want to live in their homes. Our house types and layouts reflect that knowledge, whether in two-bedroom starter homes for couples planning their families or sprawling five-bedroom properties with multiple bathrooms for a house full of teenagers.

If you are searching for your next family home, you might want to consider one of the following developments.
