Since its recent launch, Knights Wood has brought fresh impetus to the Tunbridge Wells property market and is proving popular with a broad section of people searching for the same thing – a stylish and low-maintenance new home that offers excellent value for money.
So far, many of the people buying homes in the first phase at Knights Wood have been young professionals, including doctors, who lead very busy lives and want an escape from the stresses of everyday life, without the need to carry out time-consuming and often costly DIY beforehand.
In a similar vein, this first phase of three-bedroom homes has been very popular with young families, often with small children, who are looking to spend as much of their free time as possible enjoying life in fantastic new surroundings, rather than needing to ‘do-up’ their new house.
For ‘downsizers’ looking to move to a property requiring less maintenance and within easy reach of local amenities, Knights Wood is ideal. The homes are also a superb opportunity for investors looking for a rental-return with a good yield.
As one of the first purchasers at Knights Wood, Mr and Mrs Stevens from Tunbridge Wells were certainly attracted to the idea of buying a new home that comes with a ten-year warranty and will definitely require far fewer repairs than an older property inevitably would. Speaking of their purchase, they said,
“With the housing market in Tunbridge Wells being so competitive, we were really struggling to find a property within our price range that didn’t need lots of work doing to it. The properties at Knights Wood have offered us an ideal first family home that is ready to live in from day one!”
Ashley Mason, Head of Sales at Tunbridge Wells-based estate agent Knight Frank said,
“We carried out some research which revealed that in recent years, the majority of housing transactions in the Tunbridge Wells area have been in the upper market, ie £750,000 or over. The need for premium-quality family homes priced below the £500,000 mark was very clear, so it is no surprise that Knights Wood is proving so popular. It also helps that the setting is quite stunning, so I would wholeheartedly recommend a visit to the fantastic new Marketing Suite!”
Following the successful launch of the first phase at Knights Wood, the Sunburst and Admiral (detached) house styles are now all sold.
Due to such strong demand, a further 27 homes have been released for sale, with the three-bedroom detached Bramling and semi-detached Admiral house styles currently still available.
Prices from £365,000.
