For thousands of people, security, peace of mind and a delightful living environment are just some of the benefits of park home living.
Moving to a residential park can mean swapping urban life for a peaceful place in the country and becoming part of a friendly like-minded community. Many downsize to a park home, releasing capital in their bricks and mortar to fund their retirement.
There’s a great selection of park home styles and designs and they can be supplied fully carpeted and furnished. Your choice of Park Home in any of our estates will be a sound investment for years to come.
Records show that over the past 30 years, the value of Park Homes have increased in line with bricks and mortar homes. Owners are exempt from land registry charges and stamp duty. Council Tax is charged at the lowest price of Band A.
The purchasing process is very simple and inexpensive. A service charge covers street lighting, estate management, communal area and road maintenance.
This is a fantastic opportunity to own an individual property designed with you in mind and invest in one of Britain's most tranquil sought after regions.
