Enjoy Serenity in your retirement – a park home is ideal as a permanent base or a UK bolt hole
Serenity Parks is currently constructing the Kingsdown Meadow Residential Park in the Otford Hills near Sevenoaks and will soon be ready to welcome its first residents. Here the company explains why its properties are attractive whether you are looking to downsize or want somewhere for your retirement
IF YOU are dreaming of a retirement that is peaceful, relaxing and full of all those things that you never had the time to do when you were working, then a park home could be an ideal forever home for you.
Situated on gated communities, often in rural, picturesque corners of the country the benefits for retirees are measurable – compact, low maintenance, one storey homes; the option to free up financial equity and a lifestyle that is hugely enjoyable.
Choosing a park home as a home when you are nearing or enjoying retirement can offer many practical benefits as they are easy to maintain, are on gated communities, are energy efficient and are always single storey.
With a distinct lack of similar, compact homes available on typical new homes developments, park homes such as those offered by Serenity Parks, bring a different dimension to the new homes market.
Retiring, or indeed downsizing, to a park home in later life gives buyers the chance to enjoy life in a safe and secure community, enjoy the social aspect of living in a small gated community and reap the benefits from releasing financial equity from larger homes that are no longer needed or are challenging to upkeep.
Choosing a Serenity Park home and lifestyle for retirement, or when the family have flown the nest, is a simple and straightforward process. 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.
Once the decision is made the Serenity Park’s assisted sale scheme gives you all the support you need to help sell your existing home and experienced sales advisers will guide you through the journey, every step of the way for a quick and seamless move.
Another huge attraction of park home living is its ability to facilitate dreams of moving abroad with added practicality. Keeping a UK base means the searing heat of foreign summers can be avoided and connections with family and friends maintained meaning the best of both worlds really can be achieved with simplicity.
Furthermore, the archaic stigma associated with park homes seems to have finally been eradicated and the change in legislation that has seen park homes recognised as permanent residences has all helped to elevate their status to a tangible home option for an increasing number of people.
