School’s in - educational excellence draws family buyers to Ryarsh Park 

Posted 17 October 2016 by Keith Osborne

The area around the Kent village of Ryarsh is home to a number of highly regarded schools, a boon to new homes hunters with children...

House-hunters in Kent are taking a close look at the new homes options at Redrow’s Ryarsh Park due to the wide array of high-quality schools in the area.

The village of Ryarsh, close to Birling and West Malling north-west of Maidstone, benefits from ‘outstanding’ Ofsted primary schools and Kent’s much-admired grammar school system.

Close to home is Ryarsh Primary, which has top Ofsted marks in every category, and nearby Offham Country Primary also rates as outstanding. A little further away, West Malling C of E Primary is rated ‘good with outstanding features’ – so younger children really are well catered for by the state sector. Malling School, for older kids, specialises in sports and sciences and rates ‘good’ across the board. Maidstone is home to a number of excellent schools including Maidstone Grammar, Maidstone Grammar School for Girls and Oakwood Park Grammar School.

The development itself has an impressive range of property types to suit different requirements and budgets, with three-, four- and five-bedroom properties from Redrow’s Arts & Crafts-influenced Heritage Collection priced from £389,995 to £994,995.

Part Exchange, Mastermove and Help to Buy schemes are also available on selected plots, giving assistance to buyers in different circumstances.

Rachael Baillie, sales director for Redrow Homes (South East), says: “Buyers hoping to leave London in search of family-friendly destinations often want somewhere with good schools, close to the countryside and within commuting distance of the capital. Our new homes at Ryarsh Park tick all of those boxes and more.

“As soon as visitors arrive at the development they’re enamoured by the sweeping tree-lined approach and that’s before they’ve viewed our flagship five-bedroom ‘Highgrove’ show home.

“Viewing really is essential as the homes here are the perfect solution for those who want to escape to the countryside and embrace a more family-friendly pace of life than London offers.”

The journey time from West Malling to Victoria is about an hour, with further routes available from Maidstone itself. The motorway network is only minutes from home, too.

The ‘Highgrove’ show home at Ryarsh Park is open daily from 10.00am to 5.30pm.
