Positive outlook for award-winning firm
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.
