The past year has united our nation in several ways – from baking for our neighbours to collecting their shopping - with over half of people set to continue this post lockdown. For house-hunters, this has led to a change in homebuying priorities, with 72% expressing their desire for a home in a location with a strong community and reliable neighbours[1]. Offering a selection of charming new homes in the quaint village of Hawkhurst in Kent, Millwood Designer Homes’ brand-new development Heartenoak Meadows has been thoughtfully designed for residents looking to enjoy a tight-knitted community. The ideal choice for buyers in search of a comforting collaboration of countryside and community, the extension of the Stamp Duty holiday alongside the current opportunity for purchasers to choose the kitchen specification and flooring in their new home, presents Kent homebuyers with an opportunity not to be missed.

Comprising an outstanding collection of 18 private new homes ranging from three to five bedrooms, Heartenoak Meadows is a characterful development designed in an enclave to encourage a sense of community. Situated just a short walk from the charming village of Hawkhurst, prospective buyers can take full advantage of the idyllic location and benefit from a tranquil Kentish village lifestyle. Complete with a communal meadow and a pond, Heartenoak Meadows perfectly encapsulates quintessential traditional English living.   


Philip Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments:


“This year we have seen a huge increase in community spirit in neighbourhoods and have designed Heartenoak Meadows to enable residents to easily connect and embrace the social and emotional benefits that a tight-knitted community can bring. The development truly epitomises countryside living, with a communal meadow and pond at its heart. With the Stamp Duty holiday extension, Help to Buy and the fantastic opportunity for purchasers to choose the kitchen specification and flooring of their new homes, we are certain that properties at Heartenoak Meadows won’t be around for long.”


Showcasing a prime example of the high-quality homes that Millwood delivers is The Brambleton. The detached three bedroom property displays a beautiful weatherboard exterior, with an impressive central double height window, dormer windows and an external brickwork chimney, sure to wow purchasers.

Carefully designed to maximise space and light, the property features an open plan kitchen/ dining room with an adjoining utility room and bi folding doors that extend the space into the garden, perfect for al fresco summer dining. The well-equipped kitchen comes complete with a number of integrated appliances, including a single electric oven, combination microwave/grill, fridge/freezer, wine cooler and dishwasher. Providing the perfect place to unwind in the evening, The Brambleton has a separate large living room with a cosy brick fireplace and wood burning stove. Offering versatility in a unique two-storey property, the stylish master bedroom with en suite is located on the ground floor.


Upstairs offers homeowners two further generously sized bedrooms both complete with fitted wardrobes and one with an en suite. There is also a study  providing the ideal space for those working from home for the foreseeable future, and a large family bathroom with crisp white sanitaryware.

Set in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), families can benefit from that all-important green space that will perfectly fulfil their outdoor needs. The award-winning Bedgebury Forest is a 10-minute drive away, where family members can enjoy navigating their way around bike trails, tree-top courses and zip lines. Alongside the abundance of green space this area has to offer, residents also have easy access to the local everyday amenities in Hawkhurst High Street, including a Tesco Metro, Waitrose, Tesco, post office and pharmacy. Families with young children are also perfectly placed within walking distance to three local schools; Hawkhurst CofE Primary School, rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, and independent facilities Marlborough House School and St Ronan’s School.


Hawkhurst offers excellent transport links across the South East, for those needing to commute into Central London, or just get out and about. Etchingham Station is just a 15-minute drive away from home, providing direct services into London Charing Cross in a fast 1 hour 16 minutes. With fast and frequent links into Maidstone and out towards the South Coast, homeowners at Heartenoak Meadows can enjoy being whisked away. By road, the nearby A229 and A29 connect residents to coastal destinations such as Rye and Camber, and Gatwick Airport can be reached in under an hour, for swift holiday journeys.
