David Wilson Homes is providing viticulture fans looking for a new home in the ‘Wine Garden of England’ with a collection of beautiful homes in Staplehurst, Kent.

David Wilson Homes’ Dickens Gate development is just two miles from the famous 400-acre Hush Heath, home to Balfour Wines. The development offers a collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes in a traditional Kentish village, and remains within easy reach of the vineyards for an afternoon of wine tasting in the sun this summer.

Natalie Perry, sales and marketing director at David Wilson Homes Kent, commented: “Staplehurst is a hidden gem in Kent, set amongst beautiful countryside with activities such as winetasting right on the doorstep. With holidays abroad likely out of the question for most this summer, residents can instead enjoy a staycation and reap the benefits of living in the Kentish countryside – with vineyards for afternoons out, and countryside to explore with the family.

Dickens Gate“Dickens Gate is ideal for families looking to make the most of the Kentish countryside, with ample green space throughout both the development and the surrounding area. With exclusive incentives on selected plots, a number of our own deposit incentive schemes available to NHS employees and the Armed Forces, and the recent changes to stamp duty – now is a great time to buy at this popular development.”

Dickens Gate is set amongst open spaces and retained wildlife areas, with allotments and play areas set to open on site in future phases. The development is within walking distance from key amenities in Staplehurst village, including a primary school, local convenience store, shops, local pub, a small library, butchers, international cuisine and a medical centre.

Staplehurst railway station is just a short walk from Dickens Gate, from which direct trains to London Bridge take less than an hour. Good road connections via the A229, A21 and M20 connect residents to key locations such as Tonbridge and Maidstone.

Dickens GateCurrently available is a collection of three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, with prices starting from £361,995 for a three-bedroom semi-detached family home.
