There are certain characteristics that can impact an individual’s living quality. A recent study published in The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, has shown that living in close proximity to public transport can be a good boost for mental health . Those looking for a home that is more than commuter friendly, should look no further than luxury property developer, Millwood Designer Homes. Just one home remains at their Bell Orchard development in St Mary’s Platt, Kent, which is surrounded by top class transport facilities.

Bell Orchard comprises of three detached new homes which blend traditional Kentish architecture with a first-class specification and the latest trends in modern-day living, including wiring for multi-room audio systems, custom-made kitchens, wood burning stoves and energy-efficient induction hobs. The homes are located 15 miles from Ebbsfleet International station which provides services into London St Pancras in just 19 minutes, as well as Eurostar trains to France and Brussels. Just over one mile away is Borough Green and Wrotham station, which offers regular direct services to London Victoria in under 50 minutes. Despite being so well connected with a third station, West Malling, only five miles away, the development is surrounded by unspoilt countryside.

Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “It’s fantastic that Bell Orchard is situated in such a stunning countryside location and yet buyers, particularly commuters, are so well connected to a variety of towns as well as the city. There is no compromise for those that cannot choose between the city and the country, as Wismer House at Bell Orchard provides buyers with the perfect combination of country living and a range of options to stay connected to London.”

The garden room is at the back of the house featuring bi fold French doors opening on to the rear garden as well as pocket double doors which link the dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. The garden room also includes a skylight lantern which fills the area with natural light and provides plenty of space for entertaining.
