Entertaining at home is set to make a highly-anticipated comeback this summer, as the Prime Minister’s roadmap indicates we will be able to entertain one other household inside our homes from May 17th, and with no limits by the end of June. With many of us gearing up to host our friends and family again, through family meals, birthday celebrations or just ‘end of lockdown’ parties, owning a perfectly versatile home is crucial to making it a celebration to remember. Ticking all the boxes for the perfect party pad and ready to move into for summer 2021 is The Alexandra, a six bedroom property at The Maltings, Millwood Designer Homes’ rural development in Biddenden, Kent. With flowing open-plan interiors set across three floors, purchasers can be the hosts with the most in this ultimate entertaining home.
Enjoying a prime position nestled within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and bordering the Kent Downs, The Maltings is a collection of beautiful new homes ranging from one to six bedrooms. Epitomising luxury, The Alexandra is a stunning property that combines contemporary living with the lifestyle of the modern purchaser, offering plenty of space to entertain guests; a fitting home for 21st century hosts and hostesses.
