The national Homes and Communities Agency chose Taylor Wimpey as its preferred developer for the site of the former Leybourne Grange Hospital, enabling plans for its range of high-quality homes and community facilities to go ahead.
As well as offering a great choice of maintenance-free, well-designed homes for families and first-time buyers, Taylor Wimpey’s brand new apartments and houses will come equipped with eco-friendly innovations including rain-water
harvesting, and selected properties will benefit from solar-powered water heating.
A biomass boiler will provide additional energy and will use plants grown on-site or locally as fuel. Whenever possible, existing on-site materials will be recycled, and the attractive Victorian manor house will be retained as a feature of Birling Grange.
Laura Bellamy, Regional Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey, says:
"Birling Grange is set to become a highly desirable place to live in semi-rural north Kent, yet within easy reach of Maidstone – and with such a great range of homes being built, it’s a community that will attract all types of homebuyer.
"In time, the development will benefit from a good selection of local amenities, including a community centre, a shop, a school and a health centre, while there is a choice of primary schools within a mile of the new homes, in the neighbouring villages of West Malling and Leybourne.
Local amenities include infant and junior schools, shops and pubs, while nearby Aylesford is home to a wider choice of shopping, and schools for children of all ages.
For commuters, West Malling Railway Station is just over a mile from the development, Maidstone is a 15-minute drive, and quick links to the M20 put London an hour away by road.
