The external aesthetic appeal of a property has become increasingly important in homebuyers’ decisions when purchasing the perfect family home. In a survey by Barclays Mortgages, it was revealed that most house-hunters only take, on average, 10 seconds to decide whether or not they like a property simply from its external appearance. Impressive design is a component that award-winning Millwood Designer Homes is synonymous with and have showcased this at their Lavender Fields development in Isfield, East Sussex. All of the homes have been crafted with the highest attention to detail, lending the appearance of a traditional English village, complementing its idyllic location.
Millwood Designer Homes has created a sense of historical character at Lavender Fields, designing a new village environment with the appearance of one that is from 200 years ago. Offering a selection of houses that each add to the unique village character and setting, the development consists of 39 homes, including a grand manor house, opulent farm and oast houses, and a selection of bespoke family homes. The available properties include a home that has been designed to appear as a former Dairy building which has been converted into a cottage, the new Manor House redeveloped as five luxury apartments and the appearance of barns which have been converted into weather-boarded five bedroom family homes, Linton House and The Stanford.
