02 October 2020

The first neighbourhood created in Chilmington Green

Local estate agency Connells in Ashford announces homes at new development Chilmington Gate are now for sale. This is the first neighbourhood created in Chilmington Green, comprising of a collection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes in a beautiful landscaped setting.

Homes are currently being built and potential buyers are encouraged to contact the branch as soon as possible, to arrange a ‘Covid-secure’ viewing of the show homes. Also on offer on plot 22, the three bedroom ‘Rosewood’ property is a fantastic tailored incentive of £5,000 that can be used towards legal fees, furniture or moving costs.

Designed by award-winning developer Hodson Developments, these traditionally built homes benefit from stylish living spaces and boast an array of modern features:

“We are currently seeing an increase of buyers moving from the city to the country, and the new South of Ashford Garden Community, which Chilmington Green is a part of, offers the best of both worlds surrounded by countryside, with an abundance of green open spaces, whilst being in close proximity to excellent transport links,” says Stephen Lightfoot, Connells New Homes Sales Partner. “Chilmington Gate also provides the perfect opportunity for buyers who may be working from home with a variety of new properties to suit their needs. Each home features super-fast end-to-end fibre optical cabling and generous gardens.”

Chilmington Green is part of the new South of Ashford Garden Community (SAGC), one of 19 Garden Communities named by the government last year. This means it is a purpose built new settlement, or large extension to an existing town, planned by local authorities, providing a mix of homes and a community with a clear identity and attractive environment. This scheme provides the area with, not just new homes but also: new job opportunities, attractive green space and public realm areas, transport and community infrastructure, and a plan for long-term stewardship of community assets.

Upon completion, residents at Chilmington Gate will have access to a bustling high street including a selection of shops, sophisticated dining options, charming cafés, a new supermarket, and a vibrant market square. An ideal location for families, there will be four primary schools (with the first opening in 2021) and one secondary school (opening in 2022), as well as a 300-acre country park with sports pitches, pavilions and event facilities creating a vibrant community.

Chilmington possesses excellent transport connections, with high speed rail links from London St Pancras to Ashford International in just 38 minutes. By road, the A28 and M20 motorway will provide direct routes to Ashford and beyond.

Prices for properties at Chilmington Gate start from £385,000, and buyers can utilise the Government-backed Help to Buy scheme*, which provides greater assistance for first-time buyers and existing homeowners to get onto and move up the property ladder.
