Article image A new Kent housing development is promising the best of both worlds for buyers, blending an idyllic country lifestyle but with all the mod cons and conveniences of a luxury development.

Finberry is a mix of traditionally-designed two and three-bedroom cottages and four-bedroom family homes, set in the sought-after Garden of England.

Developer Crest Nicholson has seen interest soar in the wake of recent news that retail giant Amazon potentially looks set to open a brand new warehouse in nearby Sevington, creating thousands of jobs.

But that is just the latest benefit to emerge for new and potential residents of the flourishing Finberry community, which recently saw its first phase of new homes released for sale at Stour Meadows.

Perfectly located and surrounded by peaceful countryside, these beautiful new homes are within easy reach of Ashford town centre, with its host of supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants.

They are also ideal for commuters looking to make the daily trip into London thanks to the High Speed One rail link which takes just 36 minutes from Ashford International to London St Pancras, or two hours direct to Paris. The M20 motorway at junction 10 is also just a short ride down the road.

As well as having excellent transport connection, the site also boasts the finest Internet links available on the market today, with fibre optic broadband installed across the site to ensure residents can download and stream the latest movies and music, as well as browse the web, at lightning speed.

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director, Crest Nicholson Eastern said many prospective buyers have been excited about the idea of being able to set up a dream family home in the beautiful Kent countryside, without feeling cut off from the world or having to face long journeys to reach work and local amenities.

She explained: “Stour Meadows is wonderfully positioned to give homeowners the countryside lifestyle they have always longed for, without feeling too out in the sticks. It’s a place where people can relax and unwind surrounded by nature but know everything they need is just a short trip away.

“The homes have been built in an exceptional setting and it’s no surprise that there has been a huge amount of interest in the release of the first phase of properties here.”

The landmark development has also won plaudits for its ecological credentials, with its surrounding green space and water meadow where families can explore the local wildlife in its natural habitat.

Annette added: “Prospective buyers have found it’s like having a nature reserve on your doorstep. It has added another dimension to the development you rarely experience elsewhere.”

This traditional collection of homes provide a wide range of housing to suit all homebuyers needs, and there are currently three stunning new show homes open and available to view. Prices for current availability start from £250,000 for a three-bedroom home and from £340,000 for a four-bedroom home. The government-backed Help to Buy scheme is available at Finberry.
