East Sussex estate agents find bungalows back in the spotlight

How do you solve a problem like a housing crisis' By building bungalows, says the new Tory minister for housing, Brandon Lewis. His line of thinking is that mature homeowners in large family houses are desperate to downsize but are hindered by the lack of bungalows to move into. This, in return, restricts the supply of family-size houses for sale in East Sussex and across the UK. In a utopian housing market, every type of property would be built but bungalows have fallen out of fashion as they use large amounts of land for relatively small amounts of accommodation. For instance, a development of three bungalows housing three couples could also be used to build an apartment block with in excess of 12 flats. House building has become a numbers game while our population increases and lives longer. Our estate agents in East Sussex are lucky in the fact there is already a plethora of bungalows across Lewes, Forest Row, Brighton and throughout East Sussex. This most-coveted style of property for sale in East Sussex is popular with empty nesters and retirees, although single-storey dwellings are finding favour with young house buyers who realise many bungalows in East Sussex benefit from a generous garden allowance, spacious room proportions and off street parking - widening the appeal of this quintessentially British style of living. True bungalows have the living space set over just the ground floor but there are many chalet-style properties for sale in East Sussex, many of which started life as classic bungalows but have since been extended by converting the attic space. Here are some of the best places to find bungalows and chalet-style properties for sale in East Sussex: Property for sale in Lewes The picturesque county town of Lewes is most famed for something else beginning with b - bonfires, with its amazing effigies and fires earning the town the name 'bonfire capital of the world'. Bungalows for sale in Lewes are high-quality and spacious. Find fine examples on The Avenue and Orchard Road. Property for sale in Forest Row The village of Forest Row is located close to the Ashdown Forest and just three miles from East Grinstead. Roads including Ashdown Place and Post Horn Close feature a number of high-end, spacious bungalows, say East Sussex estate agents. Property for sale in Brighton Patcham, Hove, Surrenden and Rottingdean are all Brighton suburbs that feature a profusion of bungalows for sale, many within walking distance or a short drive from the splendid stretch of East Sussex coastline.
