Recent research by Origin, has revealed that three-quarters of Brits are searching for a home to live in for the rest of their lives. The survey also highlighted what the UK’s ‘forever’ home looks like, revealing that a four bedroom house in an idyllic village location, with views of the surrounding countryside was the most sought after. Combining the character and charm of a traditional Kent village, Millwood Designer Homes’ Brambledown development in Maidstone is a beautiful collection of properties that will stand the test of time.
Overlooking the Loose Valley Conservation Area and offering impressive views over the Kent countryside, Brambledown comprises a selection of 36 houses including two and three-bedroom semi-detached homes and detached chalet bungalows as well as three, four and five-bedroom detached homes. Amongst some of the most desired features in the UK’s ‘forever’ home were glass bi-folding doors, a large kitchen and good transport connections. Nearly all of respondents (99%) also agreed that natural light was of high importance. At Brambledown, The Lenham is an inviting four bedroom family home and features all of the above and more, including light-filled living spaces thanks to the striking feature window to the front of the house and glass bi-fold doors from the kitchen/family area to the garden.
