Countryside - Horsted Park, ME4
Surrounded by open countryside, Horsted Park will offer a good mix of new homes suitable for all types of buyer. The development will also provide over 6 and a half acres of open space, representing approximately 30% of the total site area.
The external design ensures that the homes are conceived as a series of "farmsteads". These houses take their cue from the rural vernacular of Kent farmsteads to produce a series of squares and courtyards with dwellings arranged around them to provide shelter, open spaces and a comfortable, domestic environment.
The mixture of new houses and apartments alongside new community facilities, as well as large open spaces, will attract interest from those wishing to move to a development that has everything on its doorstep.
Formerly the home of Mid Kent College, Horsted Park is located just 2 miles south of both Chatham and Rochester town centres and benefits from all of the amenities that these historic towns have to offer. Horsted Park has the perfect mix of green open spaces, uniquely designed homes and retail and leisure activities close by - creating an enviable living environment.
Like any village, Horsted Park is also connected to its wider neighbourhood. The layout of the development relates to the surrounding landscape, which includes the unique feature of Fort Horsted on its boundary. There are links for pedestrians and vehicles creating connections in, out and around Horsted Park, as well as with the towns and villages in the vicinity.
Chatham lies at the heart of the Medway and is perfect for those wanting to explore the local retail and leisure activities. The Pentagon Shopping Centre has over 100 shops to browse as well as a fitness centre and indoor bowling alley to enjoy. Local theatres, The Brook and Central, provide regular evening entertainment for all ages. Bars, restaurants and pubs are also sure to tempt those looking to enjoy a night out. The Council has also approved a masterplan that illustrates the potential for 30,000 square feet of new retail outlets in the town centre.
Horsted Park is ideally placed with a number of schools in the surrounding area, catering for all ages and all needs. Most schools, including the Warren Wood Community Primary School, Chatham Grammar School for Boys and Walderslade Girl’s School are all under a mile away, meaning that they are easily accessible from the development.
The ancient Cathedral City of Rochester is unique in the fact it boasts a wide range of independent shops rather than the usual high street names. The events calendar also has a lot to offer, with the famous Rochester Sweeps festival, Summer Dickens festival and the popular Rochester Castle Summer Concerts. The attractive marina at Chatham Maritime offers a range of retail outlets, eateries and Dickens World. This visitor complex themed around the life, books and times of Charles Dickens is proving to be a social mecca with a 9 screen cinema, 6 branded restaurants and a Dickens World themed restaurant all within the site. The Historic Dockyard has also reinvented itself as a successful visitor attraction and has applied for World Heritage Site status.
Perfectly placed, Horsted Park provides easy access to the M2, A2 and M20. Horsted Park is placed on the A229 with J3 of the M2 less than 1 mile away giving rapid access to the M20, M26, M25, the Dartford Crossing and London Airports as well as the channel ports and tunnel. Chatham rail station is also close by which offers a direct service into London in less than 45 minutes.
