The ideal ‘forever home’ for a resident in the East Midlands is a four-bedroom, detached house in the country, worth £395,745 – and just down the road from the kids, it has emerged.
A detailed study also found that we hanker after a property with a driveway, a play room – and somewhere to hang the washing.
Other must-haves include a large kitchen and breakfast room, an ample lounge, utility room and dining room.
A double garage and conservatory are also essential, as is a study and cloakroom. Ideally, we want to live in a location just 9.2 miles from the office.
Good transport links and a pub within a mile and a half are also vital elements.
