With Phase One ready for occupancy this summer, it seems that Orchard Gate is off to a flying start, with eight homes reserved and one already exchanged.

Named after the surrounding orchards, the enchanting new development is currently being built by Millwood Designer Homes and it’s easy to see why it has already received a lot of attention.

Situated on Kiln Barn Road in Ditton, the development is in one of Kent’s primary agricultural and horticultural areas, yet less than two miles from East and West Malling.

Surrounded by farmland with long-distance views of the North Downs, the idyllic location is further enhanced by the sympathetic design of each home, offering an eclectic mix of styles creating a truly wonderful community, with plenty of open spaces as well as a pond. There’s even the opportunity for all homes to take advantage of an allotment. Reclaimed materials will be used to reflect the history of the area, giving the sense of something that has grown organically over time, in the same way that a small hamlet evolves.

This is a rare opportunity to live in wonderful surroundings, as Millwood’s Sales Director Philip Brown explains:

“Orchard Gate isn’t really a development, it’s a community surrounded by orchards, and living here is going to be really special. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved, and the huge success we have seen already is testament to all our hard work and attention to detail.

“The Show Home will be opening in July and with only two of the 11 homes remaining, this is one event you will not want to miss. The beautiful detached family home has five bedrooms, and has been built with reclaimed brick and tile. Rooms are spacious and there’s an inglenook with a wood-burning stove, as well as a beautiful landscaped garden.”

The development is close to the M20, M26 and M25, and there are stations at both East Malling and West Malling with a regular service to London Victoria in around an hour.
