Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has a charming selection of new homes ready to move into at its Oakley Grange development in the idyllic village of Headcorn, Kent. Oakley Grange is perfectly positioned in the Kent countryside, close to the North Downs, giving residents the best of country and village living. The new homes comprise a collection of traditional two-bedroom cottages and four and five-bedroom homes, with many available on schemes such as Help to Buy and Part Exchange.  


Oakley Grange offers something for everyone; from first-time buyers, to downsizers and growing families. ‘The Woodvale’ four-bedroom home boasts open plan living on the ground floor, and the design of the property ensures that the kitchen and breakfast area is the hub of the home, ideal for socialising with family and friends.


The interiors are of the highest specification, including integrated Bosch appliances in the kitchens, and contemporary Roca Gap sanitaryware in the bathrooms. The traditional fireplace and hearth acts as a stand-out feature for the living room, perfect for cosy winter evenings. Perfectly set among the landscaped setting, the exteriors of ‘The Woodvale’ were designed to blend in seamlessly with the Kent countryside.


The position of Oakley Grange allows residents to unwind in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of city life.  In the midst of greenery and woodland, the development is close to plenty of walking routes and perfect situated for outdoor activities such as going on bike rides. Many picturesque towns, like Tenterden and Smarden are just a stone’s throw away, offering plenty of attractions for families to discover.


For those who commute into London, the development benefits from excellent transport links on its doorstep. Headcorn Railway Station is less than a ten-minute walk away, where residents can catch a train into London Victoria, departing every 30 minutes. Furthermore, Ashford International train station is a short drive away, providing high speed trains into London St Pancras Station in just 38 minutes, while the nearby A274 and M20 make it easy to travel further afield by car.


Families also have access to a selection of schools like Headcorn Primary School, rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, and Cranbrook School, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.


Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “Headcorn is a popular choice for a variety of buyers thanks to the lifestyle on offer here. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, residents can escape from the stresses of modern life with one of the many walking paths starting from the village or get involved in community groups like the local choir. The attractive village high street has all the quintessential amenities you could need such as a pub, nursery and shops, while Maidstone and Ashford are within easy reach for a wider selection of shops and restaurants.


“The new homes at Oakley Grange are perfect for families looking to gain some extra space or downsizers who might be looking to move away from their second-hand home to a hassle-free new build property that they can move into and enjoy straight away.”
