Be the first to live in Ashford’s new garden city

28 June 2019

Stylish new homes in the heart of Kent through Connells

Connells estate agents at Ashford and Park Farm are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new development in the newly created garden city of Chilmington this weekend.

The off-plan launch will take place on 29th-30th June at new development Chilmington Gate, where visitors will be able to walk the site and see some of the unfinished homes.

Chilmington Gate, built to an extremely high standard by Hodson Developments, will give homebuyers the unique opportunity of being the first to live in the first neighbourhood of Chilmington.

The development is made up a collection of luxurious 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes situated in a rural location in the heart of the Kent countryside.

Stephen Lightfoot, New Homes Sales Manager, at Connells said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for anyone looking to buy in the area. Homebuyers have the chance to be part of a brand new community, situated in a stunning rural setting but befitting from all the amenities you’d expect to find in a town. Chilmington Gate is a place you can truly call home.”

The homes are a perfect combination of traditional building techniques with modern, sustainable and energy efficient design. Each home benefits from stylish kitchens with integrated appliances, luxury bathrooms and ensuites, large open living spaces, luxury carpet to upper floors and staircases, wood flooring on the ground floor. Each property also benefits from at least two parking spaces.

The homes are also fully equipped for modern living, benefiting from pure end-to-end fibre optic cables to each home, capable of feeding the property with internet speeds of up to 1GB, communal satellite dish connection to each house for superior reception and telephone points to all rooms.

Furthermore the homes feature ‘ready to go’ television systems, where users simply install their televisions where they wish and sign up to their service provider.

Chilmington itself, on completion, will have its own high street with a great choice of shops, supermarket, restaurants and business and commercial premises, leisure facilities and a community hub. 

There will also be four primary schools, a secondary school and additional recreational and leisure facilities. There will also be an abundance of landscaped green spaces, including a 300 acre country park with sports pitches, pavilions and event facilities.

Chilmington also benefits from being a stone’s throw away from the well-connected town of Ashford, which boasts excellent transport links to London, France and beyond. Commuters would also benefit from regular trains into the capital, taking only 38 minutes.

Prices at Chilmington Gate start from £285,995. To find out more and to book an appointment to visit the launch, please contact 01233 502020 or email
