At home on an island

Work is under way on two sectors of a major development on St Mary’s Island in Chatham.
Sector 10 and 13 at Azure will deliver a 62-unit independent living centre and 85 homes respectively. The former started this summer, the latter in 2015. Completion of both is expected for 2018.
Developer Countryside Maritime launched in September two new show homes at the site, designed by Phoenix Interior Design: the four-bedroom, three-storey Admiral and the five-bedroom, three-storey Carrack.
The properties are a 13-minute drive from Rochester’s new station, opened in December 2015, and 20 minutes from Ebbsfleet International.
Azure is the last part of a 16-phase masterplan, approved in 1995 and delivered in phases since then: 1,361 homes have already been built, and a further 247 will be delivered between January 2017 and February 2023.
