Six Luxury Modern Detached Country Homes
All With 4-5 Bedrooms
The generic meaning of a Forstal is the land in front of a farm and its’ farmyard. Tgdesignerhomes have created a haven of stunning contemporary homes that are reminiscent of a farm setting but with a modern interpretation set in a magical location.
The husband and wife team at Tgdesignerhomes are now well known for their attention to detail, and exciting use of striking materials. Careful consideration is always given to the use of space, light and high quality finishes as well as ensuring each home feels unique and suited to the needs of modern living. The proposed material palette and forms are made up of 3 key elements, black sandblasted larch cladding, Dutch slim profile yellow stock bricks laid in a contemporary fashion, and high quality slate roof tiles creating a coherent and recognisable style.
The high quality family dwellings have cleverly designed internal spaces that allow the rooms to naturally flow and engage with the countryside. The ground floor has been created with careful thought to ever-changing modern living requirements. Each house has a well equipped contemporary kitchen from local kitchen designers Smallbone. On the first floor are 4 generous bedrooms that enjoy fabulous rural views of the immediate countryside and fields beyond. Modern bathrooms and en-suites add to the luxurious feeling of a stylish family home.
Lenham Heath is a hamlet in the heart of the Kent countryside situated at the foot of the North Downs deemed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a local pub, acres of open countryside, bird-song, and wildlife.
However, if you need more than breath-taking countryside – the close proximity to historic Lenham and Charing open up village life with all its charm and amenities. Several restaurants, pubs, local artisan shops and independent traders offer local produce, crafts and antiques.
Pilgrims trod the paths of the North Downs Way years ago and The Stour Valley walk passed through Lenham Heath. There are many sign-posted paths to enjoy the beautiful countryside either on foot, horseback, or bike trails are becoming ever popular. If you still wish to have access to city life and the continent, then the location is perfect. Excellent access to the M20/A20 network enables fast track journeys to London, Canterbury, Ashford and beyond. Both Lenham and Charing are well connected via mainline rail services to London and the coast. The high speed rail service runs from Ashford to London in under 35 minutes or International services to Paris, Brussels, and many more locations are easily accessible.
Local history and superb events can be found nearby at Leeds Castle. Pluckley has some fantastic walks, and musical events are often held at the Hop Farm. Further afield lies the splendid array of Kents’ historic houses, castles, coast-line and there are limitless activities to explore.
There is also a good selection of well performing state primary and secondary schools near-by as well as highly regarded Independent schools offering great choices for families all within an 8 mile radius.
