Downsizers make a perfect move
Two’s company for downsizers Wayne and Stacey Vincent.
After their children left home, the couple had been rattling around in their old roomy home – until they a saw a compact three-bedroom property at Barratt Homes’ new Martello Lakes development in Hythe.
Wayne, 53, says: “Our old home had big rooms, garages and lots of space, which you need for a family. We wanted something a bit smaller as it’s now just the two of us.
“For example, we wanted a kitchen/ dining area, not a dining room, so we could cook and chat together, particularly with our guests when they come round.”
Since the move, Wayne and Stacey, who is 52, have become grandparents for the first time. They are already looking forward to trips to the nearby beach with their granddaughter.
Martello Lakes is a sevenminute drive from Hythe. Ashford International is 20 minutes away, connecting residents with Kings Cross St Pancras in 38 minutes.
Prices range from £199,995 for a twobedroom apartment to £359,995 for a four-bedroom home.
Help to Buy is available on all homes.
