A ground floor two bedroom apartment at Kingsbrook Park, a stunning new development by Berkeley has given purchasers Mark Smith and his 80 year old mother, Doreen, an exciting new lease of life. Attracted by the contemporary open plan design, excellent location and the ability to take their Mini Pinscher dog 'Titch' with them, they are now both making the most of their new home, including the spectacular views of Canterbury Cathedral and the River Stour.
Mark, 46, is a civil servant who works at the Department of Work and Pensions, conveniently located only a few minutes' walk away from the development. Mark comments: "Mum and I love living at Kingsbrook Park, it has quite simply taken an enormous weight off my shoulders and given Mum a new lease of life. We moved from our former five bedroom family home which had become too much for us both, into a two bedroom apartment that is much better suited to both our needs. It is ideally located on the ground floor so Mum doesn't have to use any stairs, it is very easy to clean and maintain, and we both love the views of the Canterbury Cathedral and the river."
He continues: "Buying off plan meant we had lots of choices with regards to the final design and Mum loves the open plan living, dining and kitchen area.
Mark concludes: "The whole experience has been amazing, the sales team were really helpful, allowing me to concentrate on helping Mum while they expertly organised the move and kept me constantly up to date. Most importantly, Mum is now happy and relaxed as she knows that I am close by, plus she can take a stroll to the nearby shops if she wants to. I am also much more relaxed and my colleagues even think I've become new person!"
