Crest Nicholson Eastern’s stunning new Hazelbourne development is proving a huge hit with buyers – especially those already living in the sought-after area of Kent.
Sixteen of the properties at the development in the picturesque village of Borough Green have already been snapped up by local people. Many of the house-hunters have listed the development’s beautiful surroundings combined with quality design as a draw, while others have been tempted by Hazelbourne’s letting potential thanks to its fantastic transport links and semi-rural setting.
Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just seven miles outside of Sevenoaks, Hazelbourne is made up of a traditionally inspired collection of two-bedroom apartments and coach houses, two and three-bedroom cottages and four-bedroom family homes surrounded by impressive views and established woodland.
Annette Cole, Crest Nicholson Eastern’s Sales and Marketing Director believes that Hazelbourne offers buyers an idyllic retreat in one of the most desirable parts of the country. She commented: “The development boasts a unique setting among 12 acres of green space, making it perfect for those looking to enjoy outdoor life with footpaths leading to open countryside and woodland walks literally on your doorstep.
“The mix of homes means we have seen a range of buyers, from those looking to upsize as their family expands to older buyers looking to downsize to an energy efficient and low maintenance property.
“We’ve also found many of the buyers are from the local area, which demonstrates to us that local residents can appreciate what’s on offer at Hazelbourne and that the site has fitted in perfectly with the surrounding area.”
Hazelbourne derives its name from the local history of nut growing and as part of the wide open spaces within this scheme, Hazel coppices are set to be re-instated to flourish in the area once more.
All of the plots on the development are traditionally styled homes, taking their architectural cue from older buildings in the vicinity – particularly those at nearby Basted Mill where the River Bourne passes through.
All of the properties at Hazelbourne come with a stylish and beautifully finished interior – the hallmark of all Crest Nicholson properties – with fully fitted Impuls Kitchens by The Alno Group featuring brushed steel Bosch appliances, while the elegant bathrooms and en suites have pure white Roca sanitaryware partnered with contemporary Hansgrohe fittings.
The houses all have private gardens, with the delightful feature of double French doors opening onto the rear garden, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living and bringing the natural benefits of Hazelbourne closer still.
Borough Green is a popular and attractive village that combines a good range of shops and facilities with the old world charm of historic timbered buildings. The High Street, which is a short distance from Hazelbourne, provides for daily needs with a bakery, post office, two small supermarkets, a chemist and a handful of pubs and restaurants.
Meanwhile, the development is perfectly located for parents with school-age children as Borough Green Primary School and Wrotham School, both rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, are situated nearby. There are also excellent schools in Sevenoaks including the famous independent Sevenoaks School, which dates back to 1432.
For those looking to commute to London, Borough Green and Wrotham station is 10 minutes walk from Hazelbourne. Services take approximately 42 minutes to reach London Victoria, while you can also reach Ashford International for Eurostar connections in 44 minutes.
Prices for a 2-bedroom apartment start from £194,000 and a 4-bedroom family home start at £355,000.
