Home buyers looking to make a home in a village that is steeped in history, will be pleased to hear that luxury property developer, Millwood Designer Homes, has just announced that buyers can now purchase off plan at their new upcoming development, Lavender Fields in Isfield, East Sussex. With King Harold once spending the night in local stately home, Isfield Place, the night before the Battle of Hastings and the popular Laughing Fish Public House, originally built as a chapel, once catering to 3,000 Canadian troops during World War II, Lavender Fields is the perfect development set to become a part of the next chapter of Isfield’s history.
To keep with the wealth of history throughout the village, Millwood has created a sense of historical character at Lavender Fields, with a mix of homes that blend seamlessly into the mature setting. The development consists of 39 homes including luxury apartments situated within a grand manor house, opulent farm and oast houses and a selection of smaller terraced cottages. All of the homes on the development have been crafted with the highest attention to detail and have a meticulous finish throughout. All of the homes will have the Millwood trademark of using reclaimed materials, so that the development has the appearance of a quintessential English village, like its setting.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “We are excited to unveil the beautiful properties at Lavender Fields. Due to the fantastic countryside setting and village atmosphere, we are anticipating a lot of interest in the development. We are happy to offer apartments, larger homes and smaller cottages to cater for a variety of buyers and a selection of properties will be available to purchase off plan.”
