Since March 2020, the demand for spacious, detached properties has risen, with a 5% increase on the average price for this property type.
Showcasing a beautiful collection of nine exclusive detached and semi-detached farmstead homes in the countryside village of Brenchley, Kent, local housebuilder Millwood Designer Homes is preparing to launch Tibbs Court Farm. Set in the rural idyll of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the luxurious new development will be a superb choice for buyers looking to upgrade to a more spacious traditional village home in the peaceful Kent countryside.
Occupying a scenic position backing onto orchard land, Tibbs Court Farm is an enchanting hamlet of nine two to five bedroom private properties just a short walk from the medieval village of Brenchley. Just over six miles from the larger town of Tunbridge Wells, the homes will each benefit from a striking individual design, from sizable barns and farm houses to smaller cottages, whilst seamlessly harmonising with the local Kent architecture, reflecting a traditional farmstead style of home. Two original barn units for commercial use are also being retained at the development, offering the opportunity for small local businesses to find a new base at the site.
Philip Brown, Sales and Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Detached homes have always had an appeal to those looking to upsize as they bring more space and more privacy, but there has definitely been a surge in demand since the beginning of the first lockdown last year. We are pleased to say that we are able to accommodate this growing demand at our upcoming development, Tibbs Court Farm, with three beautiful detached properties and the same number of semi-detached homes, ideal for a broad range of purchasers trying to find a more exclusive home in a tranquil countryside location.”
Set in Millwood’s traditional architectural style with a nod to the farmland on which the site is based, each farmstead property at Tibbs Court Farm will enjoy its own unique interior layout, from open-plan living and dining areas ideal for spending quality time together as a family, to separate designer kitchens that come with a selection of integrated appliances to help residents settle comfortably into countryside life, including wine coolers, fridge/freezers and dishwashers.
Alongside the breath-taking Kent countryside on the doorstep, each property will come complete with its own generously-sized private landscaped garden with patio area, ensuring there is plenty of space for families to get outside and enjoy each other’s company.
The stunning rural village of Brenchley is just a 10-minute walk from Tibbs Court Farm, and offers a small selection of everyday amenities, including a butchers, post office, café, doctor’s surgery and dentist as well as the local country pub, The Halfway House. For all other necessities, the vibrant town of Tunbridge Wells is a 17-minute drive away and offers a selection of well-known high street retailers, boutique shops, bars, restaurants and coffee shops, in addition to Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco supermarkets, and a Waitrose in Paddock Wood.

After a full day of exploring, a selection of traditional country pubs and restaurants surround the development, including The Hopbine Inn and The Bull, where residents can sample the local cider and ales.
