We're launching show homes at Oakdene at The Hoplands
We have recently opened three show homes at Oakdene at The Hoplands in Hersden. On Saturday 1st August, the Marlow opens its doors to the public for the first time, as the fourth and final show home.
The latest launch follows the reopening of our sales centres and show homes across the region, having developed robust plans for its workforce and customers. Stringent social distancing protocols, rigorous cleaning regimes and a range of physical measures to reduce the spread of Covid-19 are just some of the measures that have been introduced.
Sale centres are open seven days a week and appointments can be booked online or by phone, walk-ins are also welcome. On Thursdays there are extended opening hours until 7pm, with the evening slots available by appointment only. To ensure show home visits are safe and enjoyable, we are only allowing one party at a time to view each show home.
Interested buyers can also access virtual viewings online, speak to sales consultants remotely and legally reserve a new home via the housebuilder’s dedicated MyRedrow customer portal.
Show homes at Oakdene at The Hoplands
The Marlow, opening its doors this Saturday, is a four-bedroom detached property with well-proportioned rooms and large windows, flooding the home with plenty of light. The downstairs is designed around the spacious open plan kitchen and dining area which overlooks and gives access to the garden, along with a large lounge, separate utility, and integrated garage. The main bedroom comes with an en-suite bathroom, and the three further double bedrooms share a large family bathroom and have the option of fitted wardrobes.
In addition to the Marlow, we have recently launched the Ludlow, Stratford and Warwick to highlight the variety of homes available at Oakdene at The Hoplands, to suit a range of lifestyles. The homes are part of our award-winning Heritage Collection and inspired by the 1930s Arts and Crafts era, reflected in the classical English frontage.
The Ludlow combines luxury with convenience. The new home has an en-suite bathroom to the principal bedroom, alongside two further beautifully laid out bedrooms. Downstairs a kitchen dining area opens out into the garden and a separate lounge sits at the front of the house. The finishing touch includes a separate laundry cupboard and downstairs cloakroom.
The four-bedroom Stratford boasts chic and spacious interiors, with the kitchen and dining area forming the heart of the home. The Stratford focuses on the larger family with a separate lounge, cloakroom, and downstairs laundry room also provided downstairs. Upstairs the home has a generous en-suite bathroom to the principal bedroom and three further bedrooms.
The Warwick incorporates charming wooden detailing on the exterior of the property with modern interiors. The home comprises three bedrooms, one which could double as a home office, a large kitchen dining room, separate lounge, cloakroom, and external garage.
Rachael Baillie, sales director at our South East division, commented: “We are thrilled to be launching our show homes at Oakdene at The Hoplands. Having four show homes available to view provides our customers with the opportunity to experience the different sizes, layouts and individual features of our Heritage Collection homes.
“Hersden is the perfect location for families of all sizes, with the proximity to Canterbury and links to London. We are finding that buyers are attracted to the combination of our award-winning Heritage Collection homes, extensive open space and the onsite amenities being provided.”
Surrounded by the lush Kent countryside, and just five miles from the rich history of Canterbury, Oakdene at The Hoplands is the perfect location for growing families, with several ‘outstanding’ and ‘good’ Ofsted rated schools nearby. The development is set within 39 acres of open space, including a new village green, and homeowners are walking distance from Stodmarsh Nature Reserve and the Stour Valley Walk.
Buyers can enjoy close proximity to Canterbury, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, which lies just five miles away. One of the most visited places in the country, Canterbury is home to a wealth of culture, as well as dining and entertainment options.
Prices for homes at Oakdene at The Hoplands begin at £334,995. The Government backed Help to Buy scheme is available, giving buyers the opportunity to reserve with a 5% deposit, 20% five-year equity free loan and 75% mortgage. The recently announced stamp duty holiday for homes under £500,000 will also mean buyers reserving here will save thousands of pounds on Stamp Duty Land Tax on completion.
