A recent Community Life survey has revealed that only 37% of people in the UK would borrow and exchange favours with their neighbours. Owning a home within a friendly community is an aspiration for prospective purchasers, with many wanting to get to know their neighbours better. House hunters looking for a family home in a vibrant village setting this Christmas will be pleased to find Millwood Designer Homes’ Windsor Meadow development, located in the heart of the popular Kent village of Marden.
Windsor Meadow is a beautiful collection of 86 houses, comprising a selection of detached three, four and five-bedroom homes. Marden is in an ideal place to benefit from a friendly local community and features a range of village amenities including a farm shop, bakery, pharmacy, and the local pub, The Unicorn. The development has proven popular with families, commuters and young professionals, thanks to its position just half a mile from Marden station, which serves London Charing Cross in under an hour.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Being part of a friendly neighbourhood is an important factor when choosing a new home and is especially welcomed at this festive time of year. Carefully designed to encourage community spirit and allow residents to easily meet their neighbours, Windsor Meadow is a unique development situated in the idyllic village of Marden.
“We currently have two show homes available to view – one which has recently been designed by John Lewis & Partners. We encourage any potential purchasers to come and experience the Christmas magic and see for themselves the fantastic new community developing at Windsor Meadow.”
One of the four-bedroom homes currently available with Help to Buy is The Chevening, a characterful home with a spacious open plan kitchen and breakfast area. There is a separate living room complete with a brick fireplace and wood burning stove, ideal for the cold winter months. A separate dining room provides the ideal space for entertaining guests. Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom is complete with an en suite and fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom also features fitted wardrobes and shares a family bathroom with the further two bedrooms. All homes are finished to a high specification with integrated kitchen appliances, contemporary white suites, stylish chrome fittings, flooring and fitted lights throughout.
Acclaimed for its apple growing and with pretty surrounding orchards, the village of Marden is home to Marden Cricket & Hockey Club as well as Marden Primary School, perfect for families. For further amenities, the county town of Maidstone is just eight miles from the homes and the vibrant town of Tunbridge Wells is less than 14 miles away. Residents will also find an abundance of leisure and retail opportunities within close proximity at world-class Bluewater Shopping Centre.
For travel, the nearby A229 leads directly to the M20 and M25, providing access to Gatwick Airport. Commuters can travel from Marden Station into the capital, either London Charing Cross or Cannon Street, in just under an hour.
