Launch Event This Weekend For New Homes In Cranbrook

Posted 8 February 2024 by Keith Osborne

The Hill Group unveils the first brand new homes at its latest Kent development, Hartley Acres, on Saturday 10 February...

WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year The Hill Group is set to launch Hartley Acres, a new development located within the High Weald in Cranbrook, Kent, on Saturday 10 February.

Comprising a collection of two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, Hartley Acres is set within an abundance of green space and blends modern living in a commutable location with all the benefits of a rural, community-focused village lifestyle.

Designed with sustainability and the future in mind, all homes are energy-efficient and have also been designed to be reflective of Kent’s historic architecture with a modern touch to blend in effortlessly with the beautiful surroundings. The colour palette used is inspired by the authentic architectural style of the county; for example, The Crane House is crafted in the style of Kent’s oast houses, which were once used for kiln-drying hops. These buildings are a key part of the region’s historical identity and brewing and agricultural past.

Properties range from two to five bedroom to suit downsizers, second-steppers, families or young professionals.

The development is positioned within open, green spaces and is in an ideal location to enjoy the quintessential Kentish countryside. Precious woodland spaces have been protected for residents to enjoy, with new wildflower meadows, ponds, an orchard and reconnected hedgerow corridors to enrich habitats and biodiversity. At the heart of Hartley Acres, there will be a village green where neighbours can come to meet and socialise.

House type for sale at Hartley Acres (Hill Group)Often referred to as the ‘Capital of The Weald,’ Cranbrook is a town with many amenities. A post office, bakery and farm shop are just a few of the conveniences only a short walk away, and an array of eateries. There is also the Weald Sports Centre nearby, which has a range of exceptional sports and fitness facilities.

Cranbrook is ideally situated within the catchment for several exemplary schools. Most schools are rated ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and range from pre-school and nursery to primary schools, secondary schools and sixth form colleges.

The town has recurrent events such as the Apple Fayre, which takes place each autumn, and the bi-annual Cranbrook Literature Festival, which celebrates the area’s literary history, complete with events and competitions for all booklovers involved.

For commuters, the nearest railway station, Staplehurst, is a short drive from the development and is convenient for direct connections to the city, as trains run to London Bridge in 50 minutes and Charing Cross in one hour.

Rebecca Littler, group sales and marketing director at The Hill Group, commented: “It is a privilege to be able to enhance this already thriving community while reflecting Kent’s incredible history and architecture within our new collection of homes. This is a highly sought-after location where residents will enjoy quick connections to the city and the coast, as well as relaxing in the open green spaces of the countryside, and I look forward to seeing many others appreciate the benefits of living in this area.

“These outstanding, energy-efficient homes are built to the highest specification and are ideal for those looking for a long-term place to settle themselves and establish their roots.”

Prices at Hartley Acres start from £429,950 for a two-bedroom detached home. Find out more from The Hill Group.
