Most of us love the idea of living near green open spaces or overlooking water. The serene setting offers a calming sense of well-being, as well as the benefits of an active lifestyle, literally on your doorstep.
And home buyers now have the opportunity to acquire their own slice of lakeside living at a luxury new development, Conningbrook Lakes in Ashford, Kent.
These stylish homes, set in 31 acres of country park and lakes, offer a tranquil setting and yet are just moments from Ashford town centre with its shopping, schools and high-speed rail link offering direct services to London St Pancras in as little as 38 minutes.
When completed, this premium lakeside village of 300 homes will offer a range of contemporary two, three, four and five bed homes, with many properties overlooking the freshwater lake or the country park.
The village-like development will blend the best of both worlds – countryside living, with the benefits of a modern lifestyle – high specification homes, bright, spacious interiors, space to park the car, excellent transport connections and local amenities.
An active lifestyle is available on the doorstep, with watersport enthusiasts able to indulge in a range of activities on the lakes including fishing and sailing*. The country park, which is rich in birdlife and wildlife, offers a gateway for walkers and cyclists to explore the Wye Downs and Stour Valley, with a network of country trails.
The homes have been thoughtfully designed inside and out, to the superior quality for which both Latimer and Westerhill Homes are renowned. The style and architectural detail of the properties will echo the waterfront and their Kent location, with many homes incorporating balconies, picture windows or terraces, designed to maximise the scenic views over the lakes and surrounding parkland.
Inside, open plan living spaces and individually-designed contemporary kitchens are created with a modern family lifestyle in mind, while master bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms and useful built-in storage.
The development will be set within landscaped grounds, featuring specially commissioned art-installations reflecting, celebrating and highlighting the wildlife on the lakes. A children's play park and activity trails add to the family friendly feel, with residents also able to enjoy new facilities being developed at the Country Park, including a farm shop and café.
A five-minute journey will put residents in the heart of the vibrant Ashford offering shopping facilities, including the McArthurGlen Ashford Designer Outlet, as well as a range of cafes and restaurants, plus Ashford International with its high-speed rail link.
The properties are expected to be particularly in demand with families and those looking to relocate from London - or even for downsizers who are looking for well-connected country homes - with the development’s picturesque backdrop, privileged location close to some of Ashford’s best schools and easy commute to London, likely to prove a draw.
A range of schemes will be available to buyers including Help to Buy and Easy Move.
