Down­siz­ers make a per­fect move

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

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.
