In an age where appearance is everything, the external and internal design of a house has become increasingly more important in homebuyers’ decisions when purchasing a property. Great design is an element that award-winning home builder Countryside is synonymous with.

Aspirational Family Living at Kingsbridge

Having recently launched the show homes at its Kingsbridge development, in the sought-after village of Headcorn, Kent attention to detail is highly apparent.

Cindy De Vos, Creative Director at The Open Door Company explains how they thoughtfully designed the interiors of the show home to create sophisticated, yet comfortable, aspirational family living at Kingsbridge. Cindy comments: “We have designed the show home to be adaptable for all types of living, with an emphasis on style and elegance that is comfortable for all. With the colour palette, we took inspiration from the local area which resulted in a contemporary, yet warm and cosy feel.”

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “Show homes are an integral part of the marketing of any development, giving a real insight into the living space and feel of the homes on the development. It is an excellent opportunity for purchasers to be inspired by an interior designer’s ideas and tips on how to maximise space and layout. The new show home at Kingsbridge is a fantastic representation of what homebuyers can aspire to.”

Set in the Low Weald of Kent, this traditional yet stylish development is cohesive with its scenic rural surroundings. Kingsbridge comprises a selection of 29 high quality three and four bedroom homes. Tailored to the necessities of modern lifestyles, the homes at Kingsbridge have been beautifully designed in a traditional architectural style with an excellent specification. Designed to maximise natural light and space, many homes include impressive open plan ground floor layouts and are all fitted with contemporary style kitchens and high-quality bathroom suites. The new homes have been planned with a comfortable community setting in mind; ideal for family living.

Cindy continues: “We wanted to include a key focus with the lighting, especially in the living/kitchen and dining area. The light over the kitchen table is striking and creates a beautiful space for entertaining guests. When designing the show home at Kingsbridge, I imagined a busy family household with either young children or teenagers. The family having breakfast altogether around the table on a summers Sunday morning, with the doors wide open, or a cosy evening in the living room watching a film. “For me, it is important when I design show homes I can imagine someone going about their day-to day lives in that specific space, in order to create something someone will fall in love with.”

The Cheverny is an impressive four bedroom detached house featuring a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area with French doors leading onto the rear garden. The home boasts separate living and dining rooms, each with attractive bay windows. On the first floor, there is a master bedroom which features a luxurious en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom also with en-suite and a further two bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom. This home also features a garage.

Whilst reaping the benefits of living in the countryside, mainstream amenities and travel options are right on your doorstep. Located nine miles away, Maidstone town centre offers various forms of entertainment from shopping centres to leisure and sports facilities.

Unlike most rural villages, Headcorn has a wide range of shops and amenities and is home to a mainline railway station which is less than a mile walk from the development and ideal for commuting professionals.  Travel into central London takes less than an hour by train. Alternatively within an eight mile drive the M20 connects residents to London, the east coast of England, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

Prices for the homes at Kingsbridge start from £375,000 for three bedroom homes and £485,000 for a four bedroom home, with the Help to Buy Scheme available. For further sales information and to register your interest, please email kingsbridge@cpplc.com
