Local housebuilder Crest Nicholson has welcomed its first residents at its brand new development, Bilham Lawn, within its sought-after Finberry village in Ashford, Kent. The latest phase at Finberry offers a mixture of two, three, and four-bedroom homes, with ten different house types, making it ideal for a wide variety of potential buyers such as first time buyers, growing families, or those looking to downsize, such as retirees.

The wider Finberry development is a well-established community of over 600 people, and upon completion, will comprise a total of 1,100 homes. Finberry also offers a range of facilities and amenities, including a primary school, play parks, a community centre, shops, restaurants, and sports pitches.

One of the three-bedroom house types available at Bilham Lawn is the Chesham, a generously sized three double bedroom property. Downstairs, a welcoming hallway leads to two spacious reception rooms: a kitchen and dining area, and a living room. The kitchen and dining area benefits from French doors opening up to a sizeable garden, making the ground floor bright and airy. Upstairs, the main bedroom benefits from an en-suite, with two further bedrooms, offering ample storage throughout.

The four-bedroom Marlborough is the perfect home for growing families. The spacious layout is incredibly flexible, with an open-plan kitchen and dining area, a utility room and a separate living room, ideally suited to busy families. Four large double bedrooms can be found upstairs, with the main bedroom also benefitting from its own en-suite.

Karen Coulson, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “We’re delighted to welcome the first new homeowners into our Bilham Lawn development. Those interested in finding out more about the homes on offer should contact our friendly sales team, who can also provide information on the schemes available on select properties, including Part Exchange, SmoothMove and Deposit Unlock. Through our Part Exchange scheme, we guarantee a cash buyer for a homeowner’s existing property, with SmoothMove, we help manage the sale of the buyer’s existing home, and Deposit Unlock enables buyers to secure a new home with just a 5% deposit.   

“We look forward to welcoming many more residents into the development in the months to come, who will join the already thriving community within the wider Finberry village.”


Located by the Kent Downs AONB, the High Weald AONB, and the South Coast of England, the development is perfect for those who enjoy spending time outdoors. In addition to this, Ashford has numerous amenities including shops, restaurants, and cafes, along with the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet – home to many premium brands at discounted prices. The development also boasts the state-of-the-art Finberry Primary School just a stone’s throw away from Bilham Lawn.

A short drive away from the M20 motorway, residents have easy access to London and the M25, and the South coast in the other direction. Ashford International station is less than four miles away, linking passengers to London St Pancras in just 38 minutes, which is ideal for professional commuters.
