WHETHER you are a first time buyer, or a second, or even third stepper searching for a new home in Peacehaven, East Sussex, there is a property to suit all needs thanks to housebuilders such as Barratt Southern Counties. The housebuilder’s Chalkers Rise development, which is just a short walk from the town centre, has a collection of three- and four-bedroom houses currently on offer, with future phases set to include one- to five-bedroom homes.

Set along the south coast, Peacehaven is the quieter neighbour of lively Brighton, but the seaside town is an attractive destination in its own right. With pebble beaches, clifftop walks and the South Downs National Park just minutes away, Peacehaven offers the best of both coastal and countryside living.

Facilities in the town centre and nearby seafront include shops, pubs and restaurants, and Centenary Park, where playgrounds, five football pitches and a café can be found. Peacehaven is also just eight miles from Brighton, which is within easy reach via local bus services or driving.

Chalkers Rise is proving popular with a range of homebuyers, including couple Kristina Masson (29) and husband Tim (30). Using Part Exchange, they were able to buy a four-bedroom house at the development, where they live with sons Melvin (2) and Theo (2 months old). The couple, who own an electric car, were also impressed to find out that their new house included its very own private electric vehicle charging point (EVCP) in the garage.

Kristina said: “We were only living a few minutes away before but wanted to find a bigger house as our family grows. There is so much more space in our new home for Melvin and Theo to enjoy, which is exactly what we were looking for. An added bonus for us was when we found out that our new home included its own EVCP.

“Chalkers Rise is really well connected, which makes a huge difference for Tim and I commuting to Brighton every day for work. There are also great public transport links too! We feel that Chalkers Rise is ideal for families like us as there is plenty of green space for the children to enjoy.”
