In recent years, many homebuyers have seen the benefits of living in a three-storey house, and at Cathcart Gate in Kings Hill, Kent, leading regional housebuilder Hillreed Homes is providing some delightful examples. The extra floor not only provides more accommodation space, it can also make "zoning" your new home easier with flexible layouts and rooms that can be used for different purposes.
The curved crescent of ‘Cranbrook' townhouses make an impressive sight on approaching Cathcart Gate and are reminiscent of Georgian terraces in heritage towns and cities such as Bath. Priced from £329,950, this property type has an entrance hallway, kitchen/dining room and study on the ground floor, living room and en suite master bedroom on the first floor and a family bathroom and three more bedrooms on the top floor. The total floor space is just short of 1,500 sq ft.
The ‘Egerton' is a three-bedroom, three-storey detached property with nearly 1,300 sq ft of accommodation. The ground floor has a living/dining room, kitchen and cloakroom, there is a study and the master bedroom, complete with en suite shower room, dressing area and balcony on the first floor and the family bathroom and two more bedrooms with built-in wardrobes on the top floor.
The price of the ‘Egerton' on Plot 16 is £344,950, but homebuyers who can move quickly can bag a bargain thanks to Hillreed Homes' Summer Discounts incentive. Anyone exchanging contracts on this plot within five weeks can earn a discount of £4,000 on the list price; a four-week exchange attracts a discount of £6,000; and an express three-week exchange means the buyer gets £8,000 off.
There are three show homes to view at Cathcart Gate, each open daily. The experienced and friendly Hillreed Homes team is on hand there to discuss all the houses for sale at the development and the company's useful part exchange scheme (which cannot be used in conjunction with the Summer Discounts scheme).
Cathcart Gate is within easy reach of supermarkets and other shops at Kings Hill, the village cricket pitch and a school. Other amenities offered within this growing village include a doctor's surgery, a David Lloyd sports centre, community centre, pub, playing fields and an 18-hole golf course.
It's a short drive or bus ride to West Malling station, where there are regular services to and from central London and with four motorways and a number of major roads within a only few miles of home, these new homes in Kent make a great base for those commuting to places of work elsewhere. Nearby Maidstone has a wide selection of retail and leisure options.
