The multi-generation home offers versatility and space

In recent years there has been a growing demand for multi-generation homes, this is when several generations usually pool their money so that they can afford to buy a larger home to accommodate the whole family – Grandparents, Parents and Children. Many of these families can enjoy a spacious family home even when money is tight, by purchasing somewhere together.
 
This growing need for the multi-functional home has mainly come from economic factors as the cost of housing has become unaffordable for many first time buyers, and even second time buyers, especially when looking for the space they need for an expanding family. Although there are pros and cons to living as a large family unit under one roof, if the property is laid out to meet everyone’s needs, i.e enough space for everyone, this can be a great option for all concerned.
 
James Mackenzie, head of Strutt & Parker’s Country Department told the Telegraph: “I won’t be surprised if we see a lot more of the trend towards three-generational living.Grandparents often downsize anyway, to help pay for their grandchildren’s school fees.”
 
“If they are on the premises, helping with child care, it can save their children a fortune in child-minding fees.”
