Another exciting new development of 16 houses from TG Designer Homes Ltd in a unique location in the heart of Yalding, Kent. The Lock development is set in beautifully landscaped grounds adjacent to Hampstead Marina and Lock, with great access to local amenities as well as direct access to local transport links. Known as ‘The Island’, it is recognised as one of the prettiest non-tidal marinas in Southern England providing mooring for 160 craft in a secure and tranquil setting. The site is currently under development with 14 semi-detached and 2 detached houses alongside beautifully landscaped common land including a small park / play area for communal use.
All properties have underfloor heating at ground floor level and contemporary kitchens and bathrooms with a light, spacious feel throughout. The semi-detached houses have three good sized double bedrooms, open plan layout to the ground floor and a small outside terrace and private gardens as well as access to the communal space to the front of the development. The detached houses have four double bedrooms and breathtaking views over the Lock. There is a generous sized kitchen/family room and a fabulous living room with an outside terrace area. All houses have 2 parking spaces. Visitors parking is also available. The houses are exciting and contemporary in design with a mixed use of materials from bricks, to wood cladding that adds interest and individuality. Although the interior of the houses will be contemporary, the design has allowed for large open rooms plus some cosy lounge spaces that are separated from the day space to provide sustainable family living. Careful consideration has been given to the feeling of community within the development with the creation of a new ‘neighbourhood’ with fantastic landscaping, play equipment and seating.
