Enjoy your own Balmoral ‘castle’

The Balmoral house style

An Englishman’s home is his castle and while the Balmoral Estate is the Queen’s holiday home, one lucky buyer could live in their own Balmoral all year round.

Properties at Redrow’s exclusive Saxon Woods development in the Kent village of Hamstreet are fit for royalty and with only a few homes still available, time is of the essence.

Among the final properties available is the four-bedroom detached Balmoral show home.

Rachael Baillie, sales director for Redrow Homes (South East), said: “While the Balmoral Estate is the Royal Family’s holiday home, we’re offering purchasers the chance to own their own Balmoral ‘castle’. It’s not quite on the scale of the Queen’s private residence, but it does enjoy a sense of grandeur and our customers find it palatial.”

Accessed via a portico covered entrance, the Balmoral is a beautifully appointed double fronted property benefitting from a superb specification throughout.

Offering 1,806 sq ft of accommodation, it’s a home that’s perfect for both families and those who love to entertain. Featuring a spacious lounge with double doors leading to the open plan kitchen/ diner, the Balmoral enjoys a sense of flow that makes for a natural progression from sofa to dining table and back.

A study or family room, plus utility and cloakroom complete the ground floor. Upstairs, two of the four-bedrooms have en-suites, leaving the remaining two bedrooms to share the family bathroom.

The Balmoral show home is on the market at £640,000.

For those looking for an even more palatial property, there’s the five-bedroom Blenheim, priced at £729,995.

The good news for those with a house of their own is that subject to conditions, Redrow will consider part exchange to enable customers to climb the property ladder quickly and simply.

Homes at Saxon Woods are well suited to commuters as the development is right next to Hamstreet Station, offering easy access to Ashford and putting London St Pancras within an hour’s journey.

To be in with a chance of owning one of the final homes at Saxon Woods, visit the development, open daily from 10am to 5.30pm. For more information see
