Paul and Barbara Clark snapped up a holiday home at Kier Living Eastern’s award-winning development after exploring the south coast for suitable properties. Mr Clark, who is from the Gatwick area, explained: “When we saw the apartment at The Waterfront we put our names down there and then.
“We’d looked in other areas like Brighton and Shoreham, but this was one of the only ones that was right on the beach, and the build quality was obviously very high.”
After spending time at their new apartment as a second home, the Clarks were both so enamoured with the Waterfront that they made the decision to settle in Worthing when they retire; Mr Clark from his role as a consulting engineer and Mrs Clark from hers as a travel agent.
Father-of-two Mr Clark, 66, said: “We knew we would need a second bedroom if this was going to be a permanent home, and we decided to upgrade here because we like it so much.
“The lifestyle is fantastic, right on the beach with lots of golf courses nearby. We’re really happy with our decision to upgrade.”
The Waterfront is a unique development, designed in the shape of a catamaran to reflect Worthing’s proud sailing heritage. The collection of one and two-bedroom apartments nestles alongside three-bedroom houses, underground parking and a medical centre, and is adjacent to the thriving Worthing Sailing Club. The properties themselves were sympathetically designed and constructed to fit in with the local architecture and vistas, with a seaside theme in mind. There is just one apartment now available at £449,995.
Earlier this year, the development won the Residential category at the prestigious Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Awards for South East England. Jane Johnson, regional sales & marketing manager at Kier Living Eastern, said: “We are thrilled that Mr and Mrs Clark loved their one-bedroom apartment at The Waterfront so much that they chose to upgrade. It is testament to the pride, care and dedication that Kier puts into each and every one of our developments.”
