Residential Market


Known for its stunning rural landscapes and easy commuter access to London, housing in the South East of England has risen in popularity in recent years; Kent and Sussex were both featured in the Sunday Times Best Places to Live in 2022. Meeting demand for quality homes in the region, award winning housebuilder Millwood Designer Homes is launching a hattrick of new show homes at three of their premium developments at The Nurseries in Sutton Valence and Lanthorne Place in Broadstairs, Kent, as well as Lillybank in Battle, East Sussex. Prospective homeowners can now register to view the three brand new show homes this weekend, which have each been expertly dressed by leading interior designers. 

















At Lillybank, in Battle, the all-new four bedroom semi-detached show home The Warnham has been expertly dressed by Sarah Merrison Interiors to showcase the very best of comfortable living. Located in the historic town of Battle, near Hastings, this impressive development comprises an eclectic blend of 50 three-to-five-bedroom homes overlooking the East Sussex countryside. At Lillybank, residents can enjoy a perfect balance of rural tranquility and easy access to the town, which offers residents a healthy choice of high street shops, independent boutiques and historic Battle Abbey close by, perfect for a day exploring the rich history of the area.


Interior Designer Sarah Merrison from Sarah Merrison Interiors comments,


“At Lillybank, we have elegantly styled The Warnham with an abundance of varying tones, textures, and pieces to inject warmth and appeal to a wide range of buyers. The inviting open plan layout of the kitchen dining area is a perfect entertaining space and leads onto a gorgeous living room with cream linen furnishings, featuring wrought iron detailing for added contrast. A metal and wood console table is complemented by bronzed aged round side tables and Moroccan floor mounted mirrors which give a luxe feel.”


Lanthorne Place in Broadstairs offers a picturesque Kent location, nestled just a five-minute stroll away from Blue Flag awarded Stone Bay beach, just one of the stunning coastal locations along the Isle of Thanet. Combining coastal charm with easy access to amenities and seamless travel connections, this collection of 53 two to four-bedroom homes has been carefully designed in sympathy with the beauty of its seaside setting. The Ashton show home at Lanthorne Place is a three-bedroom home which has been dressed by Blocc Interiors with a colour palette inspired by colours from nature and the sea accentuated in wallpaper, cushions, and bespoke artwork.

The Ashton features a light and airy interior feel and the same high specification for which Millwood is renowned. On the ground floor, a spacious hallway leads into an open plan kitchen/ dining area, equipped with handleless cabinets, laminate worktops, and fully integrated appliances. A large corner sofa emphasizes this space and provides an ideal relaxation spot with a view of the spacious rear garden through convenient glass bi-fold doors. Upstairs, visitors will discover a smart principal bedroom with fitted wardrobes, and a contemporary en-suite, in addition to the two further multi-functional bedrooms, and a family bathroom.





















Pat Nightingale, Interior Designer at Blocc Interiors comments: “We have styled the stunning show home at Lanthorne Place to give elegant feel brimming with character. Our choice of fabrics and wallpapers are richly textured with natural leaves and floral patterns, adhering to a classy colour palette which combines colours from nature and the sea: neutral tones with strong accents of dark blues, ochre, smoky olive green and dark grey. We are delighted with the finished result.”

The third show home to launch is The Brambleton at The Nurseries, a collection of 18 premium residences located in the village of Sutton Valence, situated just a short drive from Maidstone, Kent. The Brambleton, a stunning three-bedroom detached chalet style bungalow, offers a stylish interior that has been expertly designed by Beau Interiors. With a contemporary interior theme, quality specification, and spacious floor plan providing ample room to suit the needs of any purchaser, this unique property is a fantastic solution for modern living at the heart of the Weald of Kent’s rolling green countryside.

Joss Miller, Interior Designer at Beau Interiors comments: “The interiors scheme for The Brambleton is a classic yet contemporary blend, showcasing the beautiful finish and spacious layout of this impressive home. A neutral palette combined with pops of colour and layers of texture helps to transform this house into a home.”
