A home office has made its way to the top of the wish-list for many people who are moving home.
Since March, many individuals have found themselves working from home due to the Coronavirus outbreak. With remote working set to become part of the new normal, there has been an increase in the number of house-hunters looking for a dedicated working space.
Whilst many properties already offer a home office as part of their specification, some owners are getting creative and transforming a guest bedroom or second reception space into a working station.
Take a look below at some of the best home offices on Propertynews.com from houses that are currently on the market.
From open plan areas to garden room renovations, there is something for everyone on this list.
