The past twelve months
has given us all a lot of time to reflect on our home and immediate
surroundings and, as such, many of us may be contemplating a move to a more
rural location where we can enjoy beautiful surroundings on our doorstep.
At its Meadow Bank
development in the small Staffordshire village of Baldwin’s Gate, Kier Living
has seen a number of buyers take the decision to downsize their property for a
rural retreat and a more relaxed pace of life.
From country walks to stunning
architecture, here are our five top reasons that people are moving to this
1. Relish in its history – The distinctive rural character of
Baldwin’s Gate is wrapped up in its history. As you take a walk around the
village, you can appreciate the architecture that was first built in the
1800’s. The Methodist Chapel at the end of the village was built in 1859, the
Station House next to the railway is a Grade II listed building and the pub was
first built in 1838. It is also the only pub in the UK to keep the name –
yourself in nature – Nestled
in the rolling fields of Staffordshire, the village is a walker’s paradise.
Residents can leave cars at home and enjoy beautiful walks through grassy
fields and wooded hills.
Amenities on your doorstep – Village life wouldn’t be complete
without its local essentials. An historic pub, a GP surgery, village shop and a
much-loved post office will ensure you are well catered for.
4. Easy access – Downsizing to a rural village can be
daunting, but with Meadow Bank’s ideal position off the A453, Stoke-on-Trent is
just under eight miles away and a regular bus service offers direct links to
the city, whilst the nearby M6 offers easy access to both the North and the
the right home – When choosing
to downsize, it’s important to pick a property that is low in maintenance so
you can enjoy your new rural lifestyle- and that’s exactly what you get when
you buy a brand new home. All properties at Meadow Bank come with the peace of
mind of a 10-year NHBC warranty.
Currently available at Meadow Bank is a
collection of two-bedroom, semi-detached properties ideal for downsizers.
Currently priced from £212,000 and offering six month’s mortgage paid* when
reserved before 28th February, now is the perfect time to buy. To
