Mike & Sylvia from Kent
Mike and Sylvia’s brand new Tingdene Regency Classic certainly stirred up local interest when it was sited at the bottom of their daughter’s garden in Kent. Neighbours and friends were aware that they were buying a park home, however didn’t seem to fully appreciate what a park home by today’s standards was like. They were amazed and very impressed with Mike and Sylva’s home.
Mike and Sylvia have a house in the local area, however for a couple of reasons their daughter and son-in-law wanted them to be that little bit closer. During the working day, Sylvia looks after their daughter, Grace, who was 14 months old at the time of visiting, and certainly keeps them busy. Mike has been diagnosed with cancer and about to start treatment, so the family are keen to be on hand to provide support during this challenging time.
Mike and Sylvia have been married for 44 years, having lived in several properties in the area during that time. They started out their married life in a caravan, which is one reason why they looked into a park home on this occasion.
It took them three applications to get the planning permission they required from the local council, however once they had got the permission they started looking for a home.
They searched the internet initially and then later met up with Tingdene’s local representative, Laurence, to discuss their options. They finally chose a 40’ x 22’ Regency Classic, making a few interior design amends along the way. They choose a Canexel clad home to suit the locality and also opted not to have any furniture or furnishings.
Once the weather improves they are planning to have a decking area added to the front of the home, so that they can step outside from their patio doors onto a decking area and enjoy the summer sun.
The home provides them with space of their own, however close to family, a perfect combination for them at this stage of their lives.
Mike and Sylvia were full of praise for the service that they had received from the sales team and are looking forward to settling into their new home. They commented “we are very happy with Tingdene’s service”
