New homes offer freshwater living

Conningbrook Lakes Kitchen

A prestigious new development at Conningbrook Lakes in Ashford Kent, offering some of the most prized homes in the area, now has two of its show homes open for viewing.  Set in 31 acres of country park and on the fringes of freshwater lakes, these contemporary homes come with impressive views yet are just moments from Ashford town centre. 

The contemporary lakeside village, which will offer 300 homes when complete, offers a stylish mix of contemporary two, three, four and five bed homes set amongst the stunning landscape of the Conningbrook Lakes and Country Park. 
The three and four-bedroom family homes come in a variety of styles, with more formal configurations along the main street and lakeside, rustic groupings backing onto the woodland reserve, or tucked in the tranquil corner by the north lake.  A number of exclusive five-bedroom lakeside properties will also be on offer, with plenty of space for friends and family to visit, plus private balconies for unrivalled views out across the water.

Combining character in a rural setting with contemporary elegance, the interiors will offer light and generously sized living spaces with each home finished to an impressive specification. From individually-designed kitchens featuring Italian soft-close units from Stosa and integrated appliances AEG, through to built-in wardrobes in the master bedrooms, this collection of homes has each been designed to maximise light and space.  Bifold doors lead out on to private gardens adding to the sense of space, with many homes also having private balconies with breath-taking views of the lakes or country park, plus off-street parking or car-barns.

Each home at Conningbrook will be finished to a high specification and built to rigorous quality standards, with energy efficiency measures to keep heating bills low, demonstrating the superior quality for which both Latimer and Westerhill Homes are renowned.

Set within landscaped grounds, the development will be positioned around a central boulevard running from the main lake to the north lake, with quieter lanes and mews leading off.  Streets will be broken up by pocket parks and public squares featuring specially commissioned art-installations reflecting, celebrating and highlighting the wildlife in and around the lakes and parks.  Conningbrook Lakes will be developed over several phases, starting with the hub of the community along the north edge of the main lake. 

The collection of homes at Conningbrook Lakes have been thoughtfully designed to reflect the heritage of the location as well as to create a distinctive identity for the neighbourhood.  Blending traditional Kentish architecture with contemporary elegance in a style befitting its waterside setting, the homes will combine red brick and steeped pitched roofs with white or black timber-style cladding and steel and glass-fronted balconies. 

A number of different individual house types add distinguishing characteristics to the neighbourhood, drawing on a palette of traditional materials to combine contemporary village charm with modern luxury.  Each home at Conningbrook will be built to rigorous quality standards with an emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability to keep heating bills low. 

And with the Wye Downs and the Stour Valley as their backdrop, these luxury new homes are set to create one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in the area.  A five-minute journey will put residents in the heart of vibrant Ashford, offering shopping facilities including the McArtherGlen Ashford Designer Outlet, as well as a range of cafes and restaurants, plus Ashford International with its high-speed rail link to London.
