3 bedroom detached house for saleHarrogate Lifestyle at Manor Park, Mierscourt Road, Rainham, Kent, ME8 8PH
- 3 bedroom home
- Open plan kitchen/dining/family room
- Utility Room
- Separate lounge
- 3 double bedrooms with en-suite
- Traditional exterior
From the outside, you would not expect the magnificently proportioned Harrogate Lifestyle to contain just three bedrooms, but step inside and you'll soon understand why. By dispensing with the family bathroom and traditional box room, our imaginative designers have created space for an en-suite in each of the lavish double bedrooms, along with a full length master bedroom complete with walk in dressing area and en-suite with both bath and shower.
The same original thinking has been applied downstairs, creating an open plan kitchen / dining / family area that has a real flow from front to back, and beyond through the patio doors onto to the garden, while still saving enough space for a large traditional lounge.
The Harrogate Lifestyle shows just what you can achieve when you think creatively, so choose a home that fits your life, instead of trying to fit your life into a standard home.

Ways To Help You Move
From old to new in 3 easy steps – and help
towards estate agents' fees
What is Mastermove?
Mastermove is a great way to make moving home simpler. It enables you to buy a brand new Redrow home, while we take care of selling your current property for you; even helping out with a contribution towards your estate agent's fees. With Mastermove, we'll arrange the valuations, appoint an estate agent to conduct your home's marketing activity and take the paperwork off your hands too.
Who is it for?
For all homeowners looking for a hassle free way to sell their home. Unlike Part Exchange, Mastermove covers any home, whether it's a flat, maisonette or ex-council house, whatever the value relative to the price of your new Redrow home. So whether you want to move up, downsize or even step sideways, Mastermove could be the best move you could make.
How does it work?
Mastermove helps you move into your brand new Redrow home in three simple steps:
- Step 1 - Find your Redrow home and register on Mastermove.
- Step 2 - We arrange 3 valuations and agree a price that will sell your house fast. We then instruct up to 3 of our approved estate agents to vigorously market your property and we'll also agree how much we pay towards your estate agent's fees.
- Step 3 - With your old house sold, you can buy your brand new Redrow home and move in as soon as it's ready.
What should I do next?
For an easier way to move, talk to a Redrow Sales Consultant today about how Mastermove can help get you moving.
The contribution towards *estate agent's' fees will vary depending on the property being purchased. Please liaise with our Sales Consultants for full details. Please note, if having sold your property through Mastermove, you decide for any reason you no longer wish to proceed with the purchase of the Redrow home, then you become responsible for the estate agent's fees and costs. If a customer completes on their related sale prior to the completion of their Redrow home they must pay the estate agent fees in full and the Redrow fee contribution will be reimbursed upon legal completion. Subject to build stage.
The chain free way to upgrade to a new Redrow home
With no lengthy chains getting in the way, and all your estate agent fees paid for you, Part Exchange is the easiest and most straightforward way to move to your new dream home.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, then pop down to the development that's caught your eye and have a chat with one of our Sales Consultants. They'll not only tell you which of the properties are available for Part Exchange, they'll fill you in on all the finer details.
If you're happy with what you hear, you'll then be asked to complete a simple questionnaire. When that's done, we'll set the ball rolling by arranging for an independent estate agent to value your home.
Then, if the value of your property is at least 35% lower than the value of your chosen Redrow home, you could be sending out the ‘We've Moved' cards before you know it.
For Part Exchange to take place, the value of your property must usually be a minimum 35% less than your chosen home. Subject to availability, on selected plots only
