For many families the appeal of a newly built home is simply the prospect of having no work to do before moving in with children in tow. However, the sales team at Crest Nicholson Eastern’s development, The Hollies, in Harrietsham, has reported an influx of families deciding to buy new for another reason; the intelligently planned living spaces in the four-bedroom Danbury house type, which provide plenty of room for a dedicated children’s play area.
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director, Crest Nicholson Eastern, explains: "As many parents can attest, keeping children’s toys from encroaching onto living spaces can be a never-ending battle. The garden room in our Danbury house type at The Hollies is proving to be a strong selling point for families who are using it as a dedicated play area, leaving the sitting room free from clutter.
“With the garden room opening directly on to the private garden and clearly visible from the open plan kitchen / dining area, parents can easily keep an eye on what the children are up to. With an en-suite master bedroom, three further bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a separate bath and shower, there’s plenty of space for growing families.”
The Hollies is well-equipped for families, with an on-site play area and Harrietsham Church of England Primary School right on the doorstep. Situated in the beautiful Kentish countryside, there’s plenty of space for children to burn off energy in the immediate surroundings, whilst within easy reach are some great children’s days out, including Leeds Castle and numerous attractions in bustling Maidstone.
Externally the attractive Danbury houses feature traditional red brickwork, a private garden and a car barn, providing additional storage and parking space. Internally the houses feature fully-fitted kitchens with integrated Bosch appliances, including a double oven; contemporary Roca sanitaryware and Hansgrohe taps and shower fittings to bathrooms and energy-efficient gas-fired central heating to help reduce energy bills.
The Hollies is a traditional collection of two and three-bedroom cottages and four-bedroom family houses. Located in rural Harrietsham, residents can enjoy the tranquil setting and a village lifestyle, while still being in easy reach of Ashford and Maidstone town centre, with direct links via the M20 at junction 10 or along the A20.
Three-bedroom homes at The Hollies are available from £270,000, while four-bedroom homes are available from £360,000. For further information, please contact the sales and marketing suite on 01622 235593 / www.crestnicholson.com/thehollies
