New research by Rightmove has revealed five-bedroom detached properties hit the sweet spot for homebuyers in the current climate, with sales of the forementioned properties seeing the biggest rise over the past year; up by 38%, compared to just 8% for all other property styles. Satisfying Kent buyers’ desires to upsize to a larger property, Millwood Designer Homes has recently launched Tibbs Court Farm, a traditional collection of farmstead homes on the outskirts of the village of Brenchley, Kent. With a selection of five bedroom detached properties to choose from, upsizers will have the pick of the plots when they purchase a property off-plan at Tibbs Court Farm.
Launched off-plan at the beginning of April, Millwood has already seen a magnificent demand for the larger homes at Tibbs Court Farm, with a third of properties already reserved. Once complete, the nine properties at the enchanting development will each benefit from a striking individual design, from sizable barns and farm houses to large two bedroom cottages, whilst seamlessly harmonising with the local Kent architecture, reflecting a traditional farmstead style of home.lopment, offering the opportunity for small local businesses to find a new base at the site.
Philip Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments:
“We are pleased to see that we have had so much interest in the properties at Tibbs Court Farm already, having only launched at the beginning of this month. There are so many benefits to buying a property off-plan; not least the fact that you have the ‘pick of the plots’, and can get in with your chosen property first, before the development officially launches. With a range of sizes and a mix of detached and semi-detached properties still available, there really is something for everyone in this traditional, country style development.”
Occupying a scenic position backing onto orchard land, Tibbs Court Farm is an enchanting hamlet of nine two to five bedroom private properties just a short walk from the medieval village of Brenchley, and six miles from the larger town of Tunbridge Wells. The Farmhouse is one of the beautiful five-bedroom detached properties available, and is perfect for life of a growing family.
On entrance to the property, a wide hallway leads into a large drawing room to the right, complete with a traditional brick Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, and a downstairs study to the left. To the rear of the ground floor, a spacious open-plan family/breakfast area with kitchen provides a hub of the home for families to enjoy spending time together, whilst the contemporary kitchen space comes complete with a stylish island and a number of integrated appliances including a dishwasher, wine cooler, full height fridge, full height freezer, warming drawer and hot tap. The family and breakfast areas also offer a seamless transition from inside to outside,
benefitting from bi-fold
doors leading into the rear garden. A separate dining room with double entry from either the family area or the drawing room and French doors into the garden completes the ground floor.
Upstairs, the luxurious master bedroom enjoys double fitted wardrobes and an en suite with its own bath and shower, perfect for a moment of zen away from busy family life. The second and third bedrooms also benefit from en suites and single fitted wardrobes offering the perfect space for visiting guests, whilst two further double bedrooms can easily be transformed into a child’s bedroom, play room or exercise space.
The picturesque village of Brenchley is just a 10-minute walk from Tibbs Court Farm, and offers a small selection of everyday amenities, including a butcher, post office, café, doctor’s surgery and dentist as well as the local country pub, The Halfway House. For all other necessities, the vibrant town of Tunbridge Wells is a 20-minute drive away and offers a selection of well-known high street retailers, boutique shops, bars, restaurants and coffee shops, in addition to Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco supermarkets, and a Waitrose in Paddock Wood.
Venturing out and about, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained in and around Brenchley. The National Trust’s Scotney Castle is just four miles away in Lamberhurst, a spectacular 14th Century moated castle with a woodland estate and acres of gardens to explore. Close by is Lamberhurst Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course that features winding fairways, undulating greens and far-reaching views across the local countryside. As well as being conveniently placed within the High Weald AONB with acres of rolling hills to explore, the Kent Downs is also not too far from home, with a number of local meadows, forests, marshes and nature reserves to explore.
Travel connections in Brenchley are second to none. From nearby Ashford International, residents can reach London St Pancras in as little as 38 minutes, whilst from Paddock Wood station direct services to London Charing Cross take just under an hour (56 minutes). By road, the A21 dual carriageway is easily accessible from Tibbs Court Farm, providing routes to Tunbridge Wells as well as the M25, which will connect residents to Gatwick Airport in just 41 minutes.
