Country walks close to new homes
Country walks are now a hop and a skip away for retired clergyman Paul Francis and his wife Audrey.
The couple, both 65, have left their church house behind for a threebedroom semi detached new build at Preston Grange, a David Wilson Homes development in the village of Preston.
Now the keen walkers are enjoying rural paths that lead from their doorstep into the surrounding Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Paul, who spent 37 years working in the Diocese of Rochester, says: “Preston is a beautiful village with a great sense of community, something which was extremely important to us when we were looking to make this next move in an important chapter of our lives.
“It is nice to just be an everyday member of the local community but not the clergyman for the first time in a while.
“Preston has all of the essential ingredients of a happy retirement and I’m delighted that we decided to move here.”
Four and five-bedroom houses ar available at Preston Grange with prices starting from £482,995.
