Today (18th May), marks the launch of Hollyfields, a brand-new community in the rural English village of Hawkenbury. Close to the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells with exceptional travel links to London, the scheme by Berkeley comprises a beautiful collection of three, four and five-bedroom houses.
Three show homes have opened in conjunction with the development to provide prospective buyers a preview of what Hollyfields has to offer including a three, four and five bedroom show home.
Thoughtfully designed homes
All houses are designed to the highest specification with light filled, contemporary interiors. Kitchens at Hollyfields are fitted with Siemens appliances, including modern features such as under counter wine coolers, while bathrooms boast walk in showers and contemporary floor to ceiling tiling. All homes feature spacious living areas with double doors leading on to private gardens or patio areas, flooding the homes with natural light and providing additional outdoor space for residents to enjoy.
The architecture and design inspiration of the scheme reflects the local area of Hawkenbury and Royal Tunbridge Wells, from classic country cottages to well-proportioned houses that fit seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
The three show houses have been designed by Honky, Phoenix Interiors and Nick Auston Design respectively to provide a glimpse into life at Hollyfields. From the natural green and magnolias of Honky's three bedroom show house, to the playful use of navy and ochre in Phoneix's four bedroom show home all the way to the geometric highlights of Nick Auston's five bedroom show home, each demonstrate the versatility of the range of homes available.
Abundance of green space, woodland and wildlife
Overlooking Kent's High Weald and edged by farmland, Hollyfields will additionally create an abundance of green open space. Homes will be set amongst children's play areas and water features, and complemented by a range of native trees, shrubs and hedgerows. Residents will be able to enjoy a tranquil country lifestyle, while still being connected to the activity of London, with trains from Tunbridge Wells rail station reaching London Bridge in just 42* minutes.
Hollyfields has been designed to encourage sustainability and create an environmentally friendly, suburban development. All homes have been planned to the highest sustainability standards to minimise energy use, and the street plan has been laid out to prioritise pedestrians and cyclists. Landscaping at Hollyfields keeps important hedgerows across the site which house dormice and badgers. Hollyfields also encourages biodiversity and a flourishing habitat for wildlife through the creation of three new ponds and wild planted areas across the scheme.
A prime location with fantastic amenities
Residents at Hollyfields will have access to a brand new onsite primary school, St Peter Church of England School**. It has an Ofsted rating of 'Outstanding' and is relocating from Tunbridge Wells to be sympathetically designed into the development. The village of Hawkenbury has a local pub, restaurants and sport facilities which are located opposite Hollyfields, including cricket pitches and tennis courts perfect for the summer months.
Hollyfields also provides easy routes to the nearby historical town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, which is just 1.5 miles away from the development. Here, there are a full range of excellent amenities, from gourmet restaurants to independent fashion retailers. The Royal Victoria Place shopping centre also offers a variety of high street and luxury brands.
