Despite being enjoyable to look at, research has shown that views are so much more than a ‘pretty face’. Scientists have discovered that people feel healthier when they live and look out over scenic areas. Colours such as greens, browns and blues, a suggestion of trees, mountains and lakes have a positive impact on the mind and wellbeing of individuals. Luxury property developer, Millwood Designer Homes, has a passion for building its developments amongst stunning scenery and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The latest development in Crowborough is no exception, Steep Road offers outstanding views over open countryside.
The development is located within just a few minutes-walk of endless natural wildlife and heathland for the residents to enjoy. Within one mile from Steep Road is the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Ashdown Forest. The 6,500 acre forest is said to be home to A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories and features walking trails around what is now the largest free public-access space in the South East of England.
Steep Road consists of two individually designed detached country houses, Rosehip House and Blueberry Barn. These five bedroom homes blend traditional Wealden vernaculars with a first-class specification and the latest trends in modern-day living, including, custom-made kitchens and energy-efficient induction hobs.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “At Millwood, we understand that there are so many qualities that attract a buyer to a home other than the property itself. The views surrounding the development really are second to none and they create such a calming and natural atmosphere. The town of Crowborough is beautiful and has so many stunning attributes. We wanted to take advantage of this and create not just dream homes but also within the ideal dream location.”
Both homes include a spacious open plan family/breakfast/kitchen area as well as a separate dining room, drawing room and a study. The master bedrooms in Rosehip House and Blueberry Barn feature an en-suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes and both homes offer double garages.
Perfect for families, Crowborough, with its own shopping facilities and a selection of leading schools, combines a traditional village-style centre with good amenities and first-class transport links. Situated on the outskirts of the town, Steep Road is also conveniently located nine miles from the shopping centre of Tunbridge Wells with a wider selection of high street shops and specialist boutiques, bars, restaurants, leisure and entertainment facilities, and an hour’s drive from Brighton and Eastbourne.
Perfect for commuters, Jarvis Brook station is a short drive from Steep Road offering services into London in an hour. The nearby A26 provides easy access to the A21, connecting to the M25 and M23 motorways, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
