Coun­try walks close to new homes

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
