I'm always drawn to the luxury of a brand new house, especially one that's in a pretty village. On the site of a former garage, I think that the developer has created an attractive collection of homes with a great deal of kerb appeal too.
Summary of the site
The former garage site in Great Chart has been transformed into an attractive collection of traditional styled cottages. Brick built, with half tile hung elevations, help these cottages blend into their surroundings. Three of the homes are road facing and although attached, the terracing appearance has been softened by staggering the builds. Furthermore, the architects have cleverly designed a passage way underneath Plot 2 and Plot 3 that leads to Plot 4, the biggest of the four, which is a detached property boasting 1647SqFt of accommodation. The character is enhanced further with double glazed wooden windows with Georgian style window bars, wooden fascias and soffits (with rafter feet features) and composite oak fronted doors.
Internally, the cottages have been excellently appointed and neutrally decorated. The bathrooms have been fitted with white suites and include vanity sink units and double shower trays (in the en-suites). There are fully integrated kitchens supplied by the renowned Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery. Other features include the fitted wardrobes in the main bedrooms, LED down lighters, oak finished internal doors and carpet fitted to most areas except kitchens, hallways and bathrooms.
Externally, the gardens come finished and laid to lawn with close board fencing and patio areas adjacent to rear elevations. There are also cycle stores and bin sheds for each cottage. Parking is provided behind the Plots 1-3 and each home comes with two allocated spaces.
From the developer
What attracted you to this site?
Great Chart is a charming Kentish village and we visited the site on a lovely sunny evening when the village felt so vibrant.
What are you most proud of now it’s nearing completion?
The bespoke design has worked really well making each property feel individual whilst being attached. The internal design allowing three bedrooms upstairs in each is a real bonus. The redesign of plot 4 has created a truly stunning 3 bedroom home.
Any other comments about the design being in keeping with the local vernacular?
The site blends in to the village setting perfectly giving the impression that the cottages could have been there 100 years yet inside they are modern and beautifully finished especially with the oak doors. All of the tradesman used to build these stunning properties are local to the area and have a pride in their work. This can be seen from the quality of craftsmanship throughout the development.
