Pos­i­tive out­look for award-winning firm

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - New Homes -

ent­land Homes has seen a busy au­tumn at Bayeux­fields, its award­win­ning prop­erty de­vel­op­ment in Hawkinge, with a num­ber of sales, and is an­tic­i­pat­ing a pos­i­tive start to the New Year, not only at Bayeux­fields, but across the East Kent re­gion. Janet Bur­nell, sales di­rec­tor of Pent­land Homes, said: “This time last year, the out­look for 2009 was bleak; how­ever, we have achieved a steady level of sales at good prices at Bayeux­fields through­out the year. “We are now see­ing a re­turn to buyer con­fi­dence as the prop­erty mar­ket has made a quicker than an­tic­i­pated up­turn. Al­though there are big dif­fer­ences in opin­ion as to whether the econ­omy is re­cov­er­ing and some re­ports of a dou­ble dip, prices have sta­bilised in east Kent, and the new CTRL link gives the area much broader ap­peal, so we ex­pect to see house prices in­creas­ing as the area be­comes com­mutable. “We will be launch­ing a se­lec­tion of two and three-bed­room houses in the spring, which are al­ready draw­ing in­ter­est – two-bed­room houses are par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar as a lot of buy­ers pre­fer a house to a flat and there is a lack of good two-bed­room houses on the mar­ket in the area.” Pent­land Homes is cur­rently mar­ket­ing a range of three and four-bed­room homes at Bayeux­fields. Prices of the three-bed­room homes start from £249,995, while fourbed­room homes start at £270,000. Hawkinge is on the crest of the North Downs, just three miles from Folke­stone. The sales of­fice is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm. Pent­land Homes is also launch­ing a new de­vel­op­ment in Folke­stone in Fe­bru­ary –West­bourne Heights, which is made up of 13 three, four and five-bed­room homes from ap­prox­i­mately £330,000.
