Residential park profile: Serenity Parks Kings Meadow Residential Park
A home in the sun and also a home in Britain... Dream or reality? Research by a park home estate company shows that having a split lifestyle – a place in the sun plus a home back in Britain – is a rising trend.
Serenity Parks tells us that a growing number of people over the age of 45, particularly those of retirement age, are choosing a simpler life, free to enjoy the things that make them happy with family and friends. This lifestyle choice has led to a surge in the number of people selling larger family homes, freeing up capital and choosing a park home lifestyle in the growing number of luxury parks across the country.
Serenity Parks says it has seen a shift in the demographic of its purchasers – professional couples looking to downsize, and retirees liquidating financial assets tied up in larger properties, are two of the types of buyers that are choosing a luxury park home lifestyle instead of more traditional homes.
The park home idea appeals to homeowners who want to fulfil their dream of living abroad, but perhaps also want a place in Britain that enables them to escape the heat of foreign summers and spend summer holidays with grandchildren. Having a park home and a home abroad, thus, is a winning combination.
Serenity’s great news this year is the development of a new park, in Kent. Kings Meadow Residential Park is in the picturesque village of Sevenoaks. The park was previously known as Romney Street Caravan Park.
This is the latest addition to the Serenity Parks portfolio and will undergo a complete transformation bringing almost 40, one, two and three bedroom single storey properties to this ideal location.
Work on the park has begun and show homes will shortly be arriving.
“This is an exciting year for us and this acquisition is the first of our developments in the south of England,” said Marie Hanby, Marketing Manager Serenity Parks.
“We are very much looking forward to bringing quality homes to allow those looking to down-size or release equity from other properties; a superb option to join an ever growing number of people who are enjoying the benefits of a park home lifestyle.”
Kings Meadow Residential Park location
The park is nestled down country lanes with lovely views, yet it is only a few minutes from a train station at Otford, which enables residents here to get to the centre of London in less than 40 minutes – and that means this park is ideal for commuters, so this is definitely not just a residential park for retirees.
Serenity Parks specialises in providing an ideal lifestyle for residents 45-plus, offering high-end park homes in desirable locations across the UK.
Accredited by the British Holiday & Homes Parks Association and a compliant park operator, each Serenity Parks site holds a full residential license to allow residents to reside all year round.
So, if you like the idea of a move to Kent – and maybe you might be tempted to buy a home abroad with the money you’ve released with the sale of your original home, visit Kings Meadow Residential Park to get to know more.
In the meantime, along with Serenity, we’ve been looking further into that idea of getting two homes…
Many people dream of retiring early and moving to sunnier climes, especially for the British winter. Initial assumptions are that this would involve a total move away from the UK. Whilst for some, that may be the perfect dream, for others the thought of giving up all roots in the UK can be a little daunting and sometimes make the dream unviable, either practically or emotionally.
So, if you discovered that it could be possible to have a base in the UK and a home abroad, what would you do then? It’s tempting, especially when you consider that park homes generally have low running and maintenance costs, and little or no exterior and garden maintenance required. And you can add in the factor that a park home can be left for long periods of time with the confidence knowing that it is secured within a gated community.
For these reasons, it’s little surprise that the possibility of having both a British bolt-hole and a place in the sun is becoming a reality for many.
Serenity Parks’ first developments, located in the northwest of England, saw demand outstrip supply, proving that retirement homes in small communities really is what astute buyers are demanding.
