Tips for house hunting with child friendly features on the spectrum


Tips for house hunting with child friendly features on the spectrum

Finding the right home is always a difficult and complicated endeavour. The complexity in the process of home buying increases by a few layers with growing children in the family. Many families aspire to live in residential areas of south Mumbai for its luxury apartments, reputed schools & colleges, health care facilities besides reducing the agony of everyday commute.

It’s important to focus on what to consider when buying a home with children so you can easily find the ‘perfect home’. The neighbourhood that you are in will have a great impact on the child’s life depending on his or her age. Younger children will need more resources in and around the neighbourhood, while slightly older children might have lesser but different kinds of requirements.


Here is a list of features to consider while buying a home for the family with children.
Good Schools & Colleges in the neighbourhood
Good schools, creches / day cares (depending on the age of the child) are important to most working parents. Having a good school in the vicinity not only guarantees a certain quality to the neighbourhood but also becomes a decision-making factor in the buying process. This also gives an indication of the commute for the child to travel to and from their respective schools. Homes mainly in neighbourhoods with reputed educational institutes such as the 3 BHK flats and 4 BHK flats of the luxury residential apartments in Worli, Vraj Tiara, have been one of the choices made by home buyers.

Evaluate the vicinity for recreational activities
The recreation facilities like parks, sports club, playground becomes an important aspect of a child’s overall growth. A child getting accustomed to the surrounding depends on having children of the same age group in the neighbourhood. It promotes positive peer interaction and helps the child gain friends. Another way of finalising a home is by looking for recreational features within the residential complex. Some luxury apartment homes such as Vraj Tiara, Worli, have kids play area, observatory deck and cafeteria within the complex making it easier to find the children of similar age groups.

Research the neighbourhood
A recent survey suggested that neighbourhoods in south Mumbai which have separate commercial and residential zones such as in Worli and Prabhadevi can be a safer neighbourhood in comparison to luxury apartment homes in commercial districts for growing children. The noisy cafes and restaurants / pubs can be a hinderance owing to the possibility of an unruly crowd. It is also important to find out if the neighbourhood has children from the same school living around the home.

Paediatric & children’s health care facilities in the neighbourhood
Children younger than 12 years, often need medical attention. It therefore is handy to have child specialists / paediatrician near your homes. In the advent of the pandemic, hospital and health care facilities around home or within a few minutes reach has become an important feature for many home buyers.

Check overall safety of the home
One of the most important aspects of house hunting is to ensure that the home is child proof. If there are measures taken within the property like CCTV surveillance, security, separate areas for drive-in and parking, safety measures taken in children’s play area etc. Opting for luxury apartment homes in Worli such as Vraj Tiara gives all the mentioned security features in addition to a separate elevator for service staff and passenger lifts, fire safety features and room for chaperones.

Consider House Size and Layout
If you’re planning on watching your kids grow up in the house or intend to grow your family, you’ll have to ask if the home is big enough to accommodate future needs. An apartment size is important for a family. A larger apartment is always preferred for its space and storage. Luxury apartments in south Mumbai like 3 BHK flats in Worli for nuclear family or 4 BHK flats in Worli for joint families are comfortable and convenient.

Another factor to consider is the floor plan. It should match your family’s lifestyle. For example, if you want to sleep in close proximity to your infant, be sure that your bedroom is on the same floor as your child’s. Key things to look for are number of bedrooms and number of bathrooms, space for recreation, view and children’s room. Would you have enough space to invite extended family over? While the number of bedrooms is clearly important, the number of bathrooms is an equally important factor.

Considering all the above factors, it is concluded that a preferred home being 3 BHK flats in Worli and 4 BHK flats in Worli with features that can accommodate security, neighbourhood and essential services like health care and recreation facilities are ideal for families with children. It is recommended to involve your children in the process of home buying, after selecting the home, since there may be some unique insights that may have been missed.
