Now Work & Life Can Peacefully Co-Exist Under the Same Roof


March 15, 2017     Homes & Builders

Great home design takes its cue from buyer market demand. Over the past two decades, the Internet has created a boom of telecommuters, and following close behind, an increase in individuals starting their own businesses. This has driven buyer interest in home office space.

In many situations, the traditional "home office" just doesn't cut it. Business owners who are attorneys, accountants, financial planners or interior designers, to name a few, need to see clients at their office but don't want to mingle the day to day affairs of their personal and professional lives. (In the way that's unavoidable when marching clients through the house to an office past kids, and pets and dishes in the sink...) The Flex Cottage live/work home designs, developed by one of The Pinehills award-winning builders, MacKenzie Brothers, elegantly solve the problem.

Glenn MacKenzie tells us his team “worked with The Pinehills to identify a key location in the Village Green to build homes that offer a true live/work balance.” The Flex Cottages offer two separate entrances - into two separate levels - from two different streets. The two levels are connected via an internal stairway that provides as much privacy as you need. Step outside the door of your office on the lower level and you are in the heart of the Village Green, vibrant with shops and services and offering your business visibility and client parking. The other entrance, to your home, sits on a quiet residential street in the Summerhouse Cottage neighborhood.

With the unique Flex Cottage designs by MacKenzie Brothers, home buyers can now achieve the ultimate, peaceful separation of work and home without adding a commute. See the Flex Cottage design for yourself at 9 Morning Stroll in The Pinehills, and let your imagination decide how to embrace this flexible home style.

MacKenzie Brothers builds:

Live/Work Flex Cottages from the $900's
Poet's Corner cottage homes from the $600s.
Custom homes from the $800s.
