Rural living is the desired lifestyle following the Covid pandemic..
According to the ‘Life After Lockdown’ report by Santander, 53% of those surveyed said that rural living is now more desirable than inner-city living; fuelling the ever-growing demand for beautiful country homes. Londoners seeking a slower pace of life further afield should look no further than Tibbs Court Farm by Millwood Designer Homes – a collection of traditional farmstead properties situated on the outskirts of the village of Brenchley, Kent. Here, buyers can truly reap the rewards of the great outdoors, all whilst remaining well-connected to the city.
The charming hamlet comprises just 9 two to five-bedroom luxury properties, all of which are designed to blend seamlessly with their surroundings. Enjoying a sought-after location in the heart of the Kentish countryside, this development is well suited to city-dwellers on the hunt for a more tranquil way of life. Residents will benefit from a seemingly never-ending network of walking routes and green spaces, in addition to a plethora of amenities in Brenchley, Tunbridge Wells and Paddock Wood.
Philip Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Over the past year, buyers have bucked the previous ‘urban living’ trend in favour of more rural locations and at Millwood we are thrilled to offer a fabulous selection of homes that tick this box. Tibbs Court Farm is the perfect choice for those wishing to immerse themselves in the great British countryside, with the development advantageously situated just moments from the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Only three homes remain at Tibbs Court Farm, including one five-bedroom property, and two two-bedroom cottages. We therefore urge prospective buyers to reserve as soon as possible.”
Those wishing to explore Kent’s abundant green spaces are spoilt for choice. Residents can take advantage of the 95-mile-long High Weald Nature Trail that connects some of the most stunning villages and gardens in the area. For avid golfers, Lamberhurst Golf Club enjoys spectacular views, incorporating the River Teise into the design of some of its holes. Scotney Castle, a stunning 14th century moated castle set in a spectacular wooded estate, is also just four miles away.
For relocating Londoners still intent on travelling into the city for work, travel connections in Brenchley are exceptional. From Ashford International, residents can reach London St Pancras in as little as 38 minutes. Alternatively, Paddock Wood station offers direct services to London Charing Cross in 56 minutes. By road, the A21 dual carriageway is easily accessible from Tibbs Court Farm, providing routes to Tunbridge Wells, the M25, and Gatwick Airport.
Tibbs Court Farm offers buyers a slice of rural England; and, due its popularity, only three beautiful homes remain. Blackwood House is a substantial five-bedroom property that promises to wow its visitors with a sense of arrival. Families are well suited to this particular plot, with a generous open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room located to the left of the building, with bifold doors leading outside to the rear garden. To the left is a stunning drawing room; featuring a stylish inglenook fireplace and wood-burning stove. Upstairs, the property enjoys five spacious bedrooms – the main benefitting from its own large bathroom, three coming with their own en-suites, and the fourth served by a family bathroom. The property also has its very own study space for home-working, located above a sizable double garage.
Each stunning room is complemented by a superb specification to meet the needs of today’s buyers. Kitchens come equipped with sleek and contemporary wall and floor cabinets with stone worktops, a range of high-quality integrated appliances, and a separate utility room. Bathrooms are likewise well appointed, with contemporary white suites, chrome fittings, and ceramic wall and floor tiles. Additional features include American white oak panelling, French doors, and Amtico flooring.
The development is just ten minutes on foot from Brenchley village, where residents can access a variety of facilities, including a butchers, café, doctor’s surgery and post office. The Halfway House, a traditional, family-run, country pub is also located in the village, and features a large beer garden – perfect for the summer. For those seeking a larger selection of stores, Tunbridge Wells is a 20-minute drive away, and plays host to the Royal Victoria Place shopping centre, where a selection of popular high-street brands can be found, including Lush, Monsoon and Next.
