Town is set for house price boom
HOUSE prices in Ashford could rise by between £500 and £12,800 thanks to the introduction of the new high speed rail service. New high speed trains are due to come on track by the end of this year and will see journey times from Ashford to London slashed from 83 to 37 minutes. A new report claims faster journey times will see house prices in Ashford rise by up to 7.5 per cent, more than anywhere else in east Kent.
