New research by Zoopla has revealed although average house values have increased by 4.53 per cent since 2016, Kent currently has the lowest average house value, compared to its neighbouring counties, making it a more affordable county to buy a new home. Recently launched, Millwood Designer Homes’ collection of three individually designed developments named ‘The Kent Collection’ has already received significant initial interest, offering an appealing investment for those wanting to jump onto or up the Kent property ladder.
With a variety of new homes now available at Windsor Meadow in Marden, The Old Orchard in Sutton Valence and Brambledown in Maidstone, properties within this exciting collection include chalet bungalows, terraced, semi-detached and spacious detached homes.
