House hunters are becoming increasingly attracted to finding the perfect balance between rural village life and urban amenities. The 2017 CBRE Wellness Report has revealed that connectivity to wider locations, access to nature and a close knit community are highly important living factors that have a huge impact on overall health and wellbeing. Award winning homebuilder Millwood Designer Homes is opening the doors to a new view home at The Old Orchard in Sutton Valence, Kent on Saturday 2nd September, perfect for those looking for a beautiful new home in a well-connected countryside setting.
