House Hunters Flock to the Homely Hockham


Recent research has revealed that it takes potential purchasers just 27 minutes to decide whether a new home is right for them.

With first impressions being so important, a contemporary show home at Springhead Park, located in Ebbsfleet Garden City has been designed to create a welcoming example of the homes available at this highly anticipated development.

Showcasing the height of modern living, Phoenix Interiors have designed the show home to strike the perfect balance between contemporary and traditional, creating an effortlessly stylish finish.

Springhead Park’s latest phase offers a collection of 113 new homes, featuring a range of two-bedroom coach houses, and two, three and four bedroom properties, appealing to a variety of buyers. The Hockham show home is an impressive four bedroom property, attractively located overlooking the Penn Green Park, a large landscaped area open to all residents of the development. Modern living has been at the forefront of the interior design in this home, complementing the striking contemporary architecture which the Hockham features.

Susan White, Managing Director of Phoenix Interiors comments: “We decided to run with a neutral colour palette throughout the home, enabling viewers to visualise themselves living there. Through using classic design techniques and subtle colours, house-hunters can project their own style onto a simple canvas whilst also being inspired by elegant design. The outcome was a relaxed interior exuding style and sophistication.”

Emma Fearn, Associate Director for Sales & Marketing of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities South region comments: “This show home has been carefully designed to be an inviting example of what a home at Springhead Park is like. We understand that prospective buyers look for a convenient, contemporary new home in a vibrant location. We are very excited to welcome house hunters to visit the show homes at Springhead Park, so they can see for themselves all that the development has to offer.”
