Kingsmead house

Award winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson has just three plots remaining at its Kingsmead development in the market town of Faversham. Nestled within the Kent countryside, the development offers residents everything Faversham has to offer, from local markets, to restaurants or pubs, excellent connections into London, and plenty of open green space to enjoy.

The last remaining homes include the three bedroom Sussex house type and the four bedroom Walberswick, both featuring modern layouts ideally suited to family living. The Sussex is a spacious home, with two parking spaces, and an open-plan kitchen-dining area and separate living room. The living room features French doors, leading out to the private garden, which let plenty of natural light in. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, with an en suite to the master, and a further third bedroom which can double up as the perfect home office or nursery. The Walberswick is a traditionally styled, detached family home boasting four good sized bedrooms, including three doubles, with the master complete with en suite and built in wardrobes. In addition, it features parking and a double garage.

Karen Coulson, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “Set in the historic market town of Faversham, Kingsmead is an attractive development home to an already vibrant community. Popular with families, the development features open green spaces with footpaths and a number of schools nearby rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

“The development is perfect for those who are looking to make their first move onto the property ladder or upsize. There are a range of schemes available to support interested buyers, including the government-backed Help to Buy initiative, Deposit Unlock, plus a number of Crest Nicholson’s own schemes such as SmoothMove and Part Exchange. With only a selection of homes remaining, this is buyers’ last opportunity to secure a home within this thriving new community before the next phase of the development, Crown Meadows, launches. Interested buyers should get in contact with our Sales team to find out more information or book an appointment.”
