Downsizing to a smaller home continues to be a popular choice for the over 55’s, as nearly four million plan to move to a smaller property for convenience as well as cash savings. Already proving extremely popular with downsizers, Millwood Designer Homes’ development Brambledown in Maidstone, Kent is an ideal location for those looking to find a new home that better suits their needs.

Brambledown consists of a beautiful collection of 36 homes, featuring two and three-bedroom semi-detached homes and detached chalet bungalows, as well as three, four and five-bedroom detached homes. There are a variety of properties available, perfect for downsizers who are looking for a new build home with less upkeep and lower maintenance or a better fit now that their children have flown the nest.

Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “One of the most common reasons for downsizing is the convenience of running a smaller home in retirement, however many associate this move with compromise. At Brambledown, this does not have to be the case. Nearly 50 per cent of residents so far at Brambledown have downsized, emphasising how well suited the homes are for those looking for lower maintenance or a simpler way of life.”

The Mulberry is a beautiful three bedroom semi-detached home, set across two floors and finished to a high specification, perfectly suited for downsizers. The home offers a spacious open plan living/dining area on the ground floor, with an adjoining garden room, featuring bi fold doors opening out onto the rear garden. A well-equipped kitchen is located at the front of the home, including a range of wall and floor cabinets with integrated appliances including induction hob, electric over, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom is complete with a contemporary en suite bathroom and stylish fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom serves a further two double bedrooms. The Mulberry benefits from a good sized garden and garage.

Enjoying charming countryside in the suburbs of Kent’s County Town of Maidstone, residents of Brambledown will be well placed to embrace beautiful scenery, whilst enjoying access to high-end amenities. Maidstone is less than two miles from the development and is home to an abundance of shopping and leisure opportunities.

An excellent commuter location, Maidstone East and West Stations both offer good rail links into central London. By road, the M20 is close and leads directly to M26 and M25, providing easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow Airport, for international travel.

The three-bedroom Mulberry house type is available for £485,000. Prices start from £330,000 for a two bedroom semi-detached home at Brambledown. For more information, visit
