The image and perception of Hastings is soon to be further improved as a business location as well as a place to work and live. Not only is the seaside town undergoing a grand transformation through a five year regeneration plan, but there has been an overwhelming case for the extension of the High Speed One rail line to Hastings, which would significantly cut down the journey time into London. With house prices increasing dramatically with the changes and improvements to public transport, luxury property developer, Millwood Designer Homes, have placed their latest Hastings based development, Woodlands View, in a prime position for residents to make the perfect investment.

Extending the high-speed rail link to Sussex would supercharge the local economy, creating millions of pounds. According to the study, the rail link and shorter journey times would improve the overall image and perception of Hastings and Bexhill as a business location and a place to work and live. Offering a range of 28 traditional two to five bedroom terrace, semi and detached homes, Woodlands View is located in the perfect position to benefit from not only the proposed extension of the rail link but also the five year regeneration plan Hastings is currently undergoing.

Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “We strongly advise that those interested in Woodlands View make their purchase soon, as we are anticipating a strong rise in house prices if plans for the proposed new rail line are approved. Talks of this as well as the fantastic changes that are currently being made to the Old Town, will help ensure. Hastings is an exciting place to live.

Homes at Woodlands View have been carefully laid out with a mix of different styles and are nestled in picturesque surroundings backing onto woodland with stunning views across the countryside towards the coast. The homes blend contemporary and traditional facade with a modern specification and the latest trends, which include stylish kitchens and contemporary bathrooms.
