Nothing Compares To New In Tonbridge

Kent homebuyers are being encouraged to expand their search criteria if they want to see their money go further.

Those considering the villages of Hildenborough and Leigh could find that a brand new home at Somerhill Green on the edge of Tonbridge offers a high specification, spacious solution that’s easy to manage, efficient to run and with no expensive home improvements required.
Rachael Baillie, sales director for Redrow Homes (South East), said: “Location is one of the main factors people consider when choosing where to live and while they often have an idea of how far they are willing to move and the area they want to live in, they could be pleasantly surprised at the difference expanding their geographic search can make.
“For example, based on Land Registry figures Rightmove reports that prices in Tonbridge compare favourably with nearby Hildenborough and Leigh where homes sold for averages of £479,461 and £523,291 respectively. These headline figures don’t show the full picture as they don’t take into account the size or the condition of the properties bought. Those who purchased older properties may also have had to pay substantial amounts for repairs and renovations, plus they’re running costs are likely to be higher than for the equivalent new build home.”
Current availability at Somerhill Green includes three and four-bedroom homes in a choice of styles with prices from £469,995.
Among them is the four-bedroom detached Lea, priced from £577,995 and offering 1,438 sq ft of living space set out over three floors.
On the ground floor it features an open plan lounge and dining room with direct access to the west facing garden, kitchen benefitting from upgrades including ceramic floor and wall tiling, stone worktops and integrated appliances.
Three bedrooms, including one with en-suite, are on the first floor, along with the family bathroom.
The crowning glory of the property is the top floor master bedroom with en-suite.
Situated to the south west of Tonbridge, with direct access to the A26 and A21, Somerhill Green is ideally placed to achieve the perfect work/life balance. London can be reached in less than 40 minutes by train from the local station, while the beautiful Kent countryside is also within easy reach.
