Why retired people are attracted to new development in Lenham


A new development in Lenham is proving especially popular with people looking for the perfect place to enjoy their retirement.

Jones Homes has built 70 properties at Westwood Park, off Ham Lane in the village. Of the 52 private homes built, 20 per cent of them have been purchased by retired buyers.

The development is now almost complete and there only one home remains for sale.

Sara Stanhope, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes Southern, said: “Westwood Park is in a wonderful rural location and the development itself is beautifully landscaped with attention to providing green open space and attractive street scenes.

“Our buyers include many people who are at that stage of life when they are no longer going out to work and they truly appreciate having pleasant surroundings every day when they are at home.

“The fact that we have a variety of house styles and finishes here is very appealing. Some of the houses have timber weatherboarding, which is traditional in this area, and customers like that attention to detail.

“It’s also easy to get out and explore the great outdoors, with the picturesque Kent countryside on the doorstep and the North Downs Way and Stour Valley Walk both just half a mile from home.

“There’s plenty of opportunity to get involved in village life, with Lenham offering a busy calendar of clubs and activities, from amateur dramatics to zumba, while Lenham railway station offers direct services into London for those who enjoy the capital’s cultural or shopping attractions.

“The development has been very popular as we can see from the fact that there is only one more home to buy here. And with all those new residents having moved in, we are seeing a thriving community forming as neighbours get to know each other.”

The final home for sale is a four-bedroom detached house – the Davenham GR, currently priced from £615,000.
