 Five reasons to downsize to Meadow Bank

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 quaint hamlet.

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 – Street Anchor.

Surround 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 Midlands.

Finding 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 find out more about the homes available at Meadow Bank, please call the sales team on 01782 482058.

T&Cs apply. Please speak to the sales executive for more information.
