Herschel Place, Hawkhurst Living Room

New Homes Released in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Recent research has revealed that homes within Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are of greater than average value, due to demand being higher than the number of homes available.

To meet the need for homes, Countryside is preparing to launch its latest development, Herschel Place, located in the tranquil village of Hawkhurst, set in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Launching in November 2017, the exclusive range of homes are ideal for those searching for a high quality specification home in a picturesque town.

Nestled within the scenic Kent countryside, Herschel Place will feature a collection of 67 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, catering to a variety of buyers. Spacious open plan living and contemporary interiors are complemented by traditional architectural detailing, striking the perfect balance between traditional and contemporary, ensuring that these homes are in keeping with their village setting.

Iain McPherson, Managing Director of New Homes and Communities South, at Countryside, comments: “We are delighted to be launching Herschel Place, with a range of properties to suit many house-hunters, from those looking to take their first step onto the property ladder, to families searching for their forever home. This development offers the rare opportunity to purchase a home in one of the most beautiful landscapes in England.”

Residents of Herschel Place will be within walking distance of a wide variety of local amenities, with Hawkhurst High Street located less than half a mile away, including a supermarket, post office, and a traditional country pub. Royal Tunbridge Wells is 15 miles away, with a wider range of shopping and leisure facilities available, including a mix of specialist shops, boutiques and popular high street brands, all nestled within a charming historic setting.

Herschel Place benefits from excellent travel connections, with regular bus services to Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells running through Hawkhurst High Street. Residents will also be well served by road, with the A21 is just three miles away, providing easy access to the M25. Ideal for commuters, Etchingham train station is just 4.8 miles away, providing a direct and stress-free service to London Charring Cross.
