Many of us have reconsidered where and how we want to live in recent years. Whether it’s wanting to swap the city streets for coastal paths, find more space inside the home for an office-away-from-office or plan for a growing family, we’ve come to want something different from our homes whichever camp you’re in.

Across the UK, three storey living has become increasingly popular for buyers looking for whichever version of their perfect modern lifestyle. Whether you’re a city slicker or a beach bum, you can now find the flexible living you want in a three-storey Cala home in the bustle of London or sea breeze of Chichester.


Here’s what you want to know:

  1. 2 + 1 = space

You never realise how much you needed more space until you have it. Thanks to the third floor, those looking to do more with their space at home can let their imaginations run wild.

Officially embrace blended working with a dedicated home office, make your body your temple with a new home gym, build the ultimate indoor playground for the children, or turn it into your own personal sanctuary. 

  1. Room to change your mind

The opportunities are endless. Fortunately, the extra room in your three-storey house means you have the chance to change your living space to keep up. That means your home can change as your priorities do, too.

Whether it’s new family members, new hobbies or new clothes, three-storey homes are easily adaptable to all family dynamics, and room uses can be altered as the family evolves. You’ll still have two floors to work with in the meantime!

  1. Tackle Energy Use with Energy Efficient Benefits

The advantages of a new build home can offer an array of energy efficient benefits. We’ve put together a handy blog showcasing how a new build property can help cut your emissions, support the fight against rising energy costs and reduce the environmental impact of your home, especially in comparison to some older properties.

As standard on all new Cala homes, double-glazed windows, efficient boilers, water-saving systems and quality insulation are all included, helping homebuyers to be more environmentally friendly as well as tackle their energy consumption.

  1. From the city: Langley Court, Beckenham

For some, life in London is too exciting to leave behind completely. But whether it’s a need for more space outdoors or more room indoors, something has to change. In Langley Court in Beckenham, homeowners can get the best of both worlds in leafy surroundings within city limits.

The three-storey McIntyre townhouses on offer are amongst landscaped surroundings and a short walk away from attractions on Beckenham High Street, or a short ride away from the shops in The Glades in Bromley. Or take a train into London Victoria or London Bridge in 20 and 25 minutes respectively.

  1. To the coast: Shopwyke Lakes, Chichester

For others, searching for calmer space closer to nature is exactly the order. Townhouses may often be synonymous with the city, but finding your three-storey lifestyle near to the coast is possible too, thanks to Cala’s Shopwyke Lakes development.

From the Sussex Coast to South Downs National Park and Chichester Harbour, homeowners at Shopwyke Lakes can immerse themselves in the outdoors. Walk, run and swim until your heart is content whether it’s with family, friends or pets. Or take a short walk into Chichester city centre to pop to your favourite shops.

With excellent schools in catchment too, it’s the perfect place to raise a family with three-storeys to grow into and change as the children grow up.
