Park home lifestyle is more desirable than ever before

Moving home at any time of life is a big decision but making the move from a bricks and mortar home to a park home may just be the best decision ever. Enjoying a wonderfully quiet and peaceful location, residents establish a superb community, supporting each other in everyday life and forming new friendships. With a mixture of retirees and those still in employment.

The Serenity Parks Kingsdown Meadow Residential Park is in the heart of the Kent countryside, just a few minutes’ drive from the popular town of Sevenoaks and just minutes from the North Downs way. Lying midway between the villages of Otford and Eynsford there is much to enjoy in this incredibly pretty part of the county.

A great place to call home
In addition to the superb location, the lifestyle that park homes offer is to be thoroughly enjoyed. Elegant and spacious, the homes offered by Serenity Parks, differ in layout but all have two bedrooms, ensuite facilities, living and dining areas and fully fitted kitchens. All have their own outdoor areas and are suitably spaced from each other giving room and privacy to residents. Furthermore, with all homes being single storey, they are particularly attractive to those with reduced or limited mobility.

Financial sense
The financial appeal of a park home lifestyle is also something which attracts buyers. Utility bills are much lower than those associated with traditional homes and as energy bills are set to tip an all-time high, the well-insulated and cosy properties can mitigate similar costs when compared with other house types. 

Unlike a bricks and mortar home, there is no stamp duty payable on park homes. This tax applies to the land being purchased and, when you buy a park home, you don’t buy the land that your home is situated on.

So, whilst other costs are still applicable such as ground rent and council tax, the one tax that is prohibitive to house buyers is eradicated, meaning park homes are much more attractive as a downsizing solution. 

Marie Hanby, Marketing Manager, Serenity Parks commented; We are incredibly proud of our Kingsdown Meadow and to see our plans come to fruition is incredibly rewarding, as is helping so many residents find their new forever home with us. Now, with just a handful of homes remaining, we look forward to completing work at the development knowing that we have played a part in creating a new community in the heart of Kent.’
