Enjoy Serenity in retirement at Kingsdown Meadow residential park
A new residential park development in the Kent countryside yet only half an hour from London – and you can personalise your home to suit your taste
Serenity Parks is seeing a major rise in demand this summer for homes at its new residential park in Sevenoaks, Kent at Knatts Valley.
With 40 homes on the development it will be a peaceful place to call home in the heart of the Kent countryside, yet it’s just minutes from Otford and only half an hour’s train journey into London.
There are currently three show homes at the park. These include the Ikon from Omar, the Waverton from Oakgrove and the Sofia from Prestige. Some of the show homes are pictured on these pages.
Assisted Sale Scheme
Serenity offers an Assisted Sale scheme. Once the decision is made, the Assisted Sale scheme gives you all the support you need to help sell your existing home and experienced sales advisers are there to guide you through the journey, every step of the way for a quick and seamless move.
Your own style
If you reserve a plot early enough in the construction process, you will be able to choose the type and style of home suited to your own personal requirements. Buyers are then able to choose interior packages which include lighting, kitchens, sofas, beds and occasional furniture, all tailored to your individual tastes.
A range of packages to suit budgets and tastes is available. Personal demands are taken into account, so extra wardrobe space for fashionistas, shelving for book worms and practical kitchen solutions for budding Mary Berrys are all able to be accommodated within reason and space allowing.
“Choosing a Serenity Park home and lifestyle is all about making life simple so that it can be enjoyed to the full,” says Marie Hanby. “By supporting our buyers with this interior service we can take away much of the hassle of setting up home meaning our residents can enjoy adding the finishing touches, making friends and settling into their new life in Serenity.”
Living in two places
Interestingly, research carried out by Serenity shows that many people looking to buy a park home are in fact creating a split-venue lifestyle – a place in the sun plus a home back in Britain.
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. 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 demographics 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 who 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.
So, if you like the idea of a move to Kent – and maybe you are tempted to buy a home abroad with the money you’ve released with the sale of your original home, visit Kingsdown Meadow Residential Park at serenityparks.co.uk/developments/kingsdown-meadow/ to find out more.
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.
