“Knights Wood is the best kept secret in Tunbridge Wells,” says Louise Norman, Associate Director of Sales & Marketing at Dandara. “The location is perfect for families and commuters, as it’s convenient for the station and the town centre while being surrounded by countryside and woodland and having a wealth of leisure activities close at hand. With a popular new primary school on site and a health club, multi-screen cinema and restaurants a short walk away, it’s not surprising that sales at the new Monarch Gardens and The Rise phase are buoyant.”
For commuters, High Brooms Station is just a mile and a half away. Southeastern offers a regular train service to Waterloo, Cannon Street, London Bridge and Charing Cross (40 minutes), and to Hastings. There is also a regular bus service into the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells itself.
One of the most attractive features of Knights Wood is the variety of architecture of the new homes. The overall development was put together by a team including Dandara, architect and masterplanner JTP and multi-disciplinary design company Axis Mason, which between them created a wide range of different styles of public realm, from open streets to intimate courtyards, to provide character to the area. The homes themselves, designed with an “urban village” vibe, pick up references in their style and materials to the traditional Georgian architecture of Tunbridge Wales, but reinterpreted in a thoroughly modern style.
Dandara prides itself on offering well-designed, high-quality homes, with many “extras” included as standard – from German-designed kitchens with integrated appliances to landscaped gardens. At Knights Wood, for example, the homes have quality floors throughout, including tiling from Porcelanosa, Amtico solid flooring and carpeting. Every home also benefits from off-road parking, a car port or a garage.
Homes currently available at Knights Wood start from £495,000 for a three-bedroom property.
