Why this cou­ple love is­land life

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

This Kent cou­ple can’t get enough of St Mary’s Is­land and are about to move into their third home there.

Graeme Rouse and his wife Ayshen have lived on the is­land in Chatham for 17 years and are set to be move into a five-bed­room home over­look­ing the Med­way with views across to Up­nor Cas­tle.

Right on the wa­ter’s edge, this stun­ning prop­erty is the home they have dreamed of liv­ing in since mov­ing to the is­land.

The Rouses have watched the UK’s first strate­gi­cally planned is­land grow into the flour­ish­ing place it is to­day.

“When I first moved here, the is­land was very sparse,” said Graeme.

“But I knew that the fi­nal part of the is­land would in­clude Coun­try­side build­ing homes along the wa­ter­front. Last year, they an­nounced that they were start­ing work on Azure which left us jump­ing at the chance to fi­nally move to the home of our dreams!”

On the former site of the Royal Naval Dock­yard, Azure is Coun­try­side’s lat­est phase of homes on St Mary’s Is­land.

Prices for the five-bed­room King­fisher start from £530,000.
