A show home has just launched at a countryside development of eight large family homes by Kent-based Sunningdale House Developments.
This collection of five-bedroom detached homes is arranged around a private, off-road culde-sac. Each of the homes is designed in a different traditional style and some have garages.
The homes have large, openplan kitchen/dining rooms at the back, with bi-fold doors opening to the landscaped gardens.
Kitchens come in a range of bespoke designs, with high gloss, matt or real wood finishes and there is a choice of granite or silestone counter tops. Integrated appliances are by AEG and there are stainless steel sinks and taps. Some of the properties have conservatories.
En suites have designer fittings by Vado and there are walk-in showers with a choice of porcelain or stone tiles.

Most of the properties are built over three storeys, although a two-storey home is also available.
There are bespoke Georgianstyle or Victorian-style staircases with a hardwood balustrade.
The show home is now open for viewing by appointment. The development is named Monocstune Mews as a nod to the old English name of the village of Monkton.
The original village was owned by church authorities and there was a dormitory for monks living there, so it became Monks Town and then Monkton.
The pretty Monkton nature reserve is appreciated for its geology, habitats, and rare orchids and the stunning nature reserve of Pegwell Bay is also close by.
Monkton has a pub, church and primary school. Canterbury is 10 miles to the west, or travel five miles east to find the Blue Flag beaches of Thanet.
The nearest train stations are at Minster and Birchington-on-Sea.
The pretty village church of St Mary Magdalene dates from pre-Domesday times.
