THE MANOR MODERN OPEN PLAN LIVING LUXURY LIVING The Manor is in the last of the four phases of homes to be built by Environ Communities at Kings Hill. This impressive building is designed to reflect one of the old Kentish manor houses, with a wide three-storey central section flanked by a two-storey building either side. Each of these is divided into two cottages.

OPEN PLAN SPACES There are four two-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom penthouses with large open plan living/dining/kitchen areas and four twobedroom cottages. Views from The Manor are stunning, as they look straight down the Avenue to the 150 acre Country Park. Access to this is through a private gate. These smart, superbly built and finished homes would be the perfect solution for anyone looking to downsize. They are roomy enough to look good with your family furniture, but just as stunning if you decided to throw out the old and start afresh with modern furniture. Solid oak flooring in living area, fitted wardrobes, fully fitted

bathrooms and kitchens are included in the price so you can easily move in and immediately start your new uncluttered life. You might be a busy professional who needs an easy-to-run, hasslefree home or, you could be an empty nester, looking for somewhere to lock-up and leave while you enjoy your retirement staying with family and friends or travelling abroad.

LIGHT & AIRY The exterior of the building may have a traditional feel, but the interiors are light, airy and quite contemporary with open plan living and great views. The ground floor apartments have bay windows with window seats overlooking private gardens; the first floor apartments each have one good sized balcony and the second floor penthouses both have two large balconies. All the apartments have a beautiful master ensuite bedroom.

THE PENTHOUSES The two stunning penthouses both have high sloping ceilings in the large open plan living

area and bi-fold glass doors opening onto two balconies, so that the outside space can become an extra room. The living area, which is light and bright, is cleverly designed with half a wall separating the sitting room from the kitchen/ dining room and a feature electric fireplace set into the dividing wall.

THE COTTAGES The two-bedroom cottages have deceptively large interiors and are built to the same specification as the apartments. Bay windows are a feature to the front and both matching bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Each cottage has a private walled landscaped garden to the rear .

COUNTRY LIVING With direct access to the Country Park and wonderful countryside on the doorstep, a community that is safe for children, self-contained and with easy access to London, the coast and Europe, The Manor could offer the beautiful, welldesigned home you have been looking for.

The high level of insulation through The Manor building will ensure that the apartments and cottages require little heating due to heat gain from solar, lighting and other equipment. Windows and patio doors are double glazed. Internal lights are low energy.

The interiors of the apartments are light and airy with large open plan living areas. The first floor apartments and second floor penthouses have sizeable balconies. The penthouses also have vaulted ceilings to the living area and the cottages are deceptively large with a bay window in the kitchen/dining room.

Contemporary Shaker style doors with matching architraves and skirtings. Good looking polished chrome Valli Italian door handles and crisp white painted walls and ceilings. For extra warmth or just an attractive focal point in the living room, there’s an ultra-smart, contemporary electric fire.

Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes built-in right to the ceiling to make the best use of the space. There is also a full-height storage cupboard in the hallway and a utility cupboard leads off the kitchen area in the apartments. Both bedrooms in the cottages are the same size with generous storage space.

The open plan kitchens by Pyram of France have large quartz or granite worktops, AEG hob, ovens, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and several cupboards. Bathrooms all have Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware complimented by Vado taps. Floor and wall tiling is Italian by Domus Tiles.

The apartments have a remote external entrance door access control. External low energy lights on sensors for the apartment building and cottages.

The two ground floor apartments feature two formally planted private gardens, surrounded by estate railings and yew hedges. Half standard trees line the path to the entrance and there’s an area of stone paving for a table and chairs. The decked balconies are dressed with planted pots and topiary, the cottage gardens are landscaped with paving and raised beds.

The Manor Apartments and Cottages are ready for you to move into and unpack. Bathroom cupboards, mirrors and tiling, door mats, ovens and fridges, alarms, flooring to living areas, doorbells and coat hooks, fully planted and landscaped gardens.

The Manor completes the village scene of Oaks Hamlet, a prestigious development built on the edge of Kings Hill. Oaks Hamlet offers a true village community, with winding lanes and a mixture of beautifully designed houses in the local vernacular with a contemporary twist. Like any Kentish village there is a mix from terraced cottages through to Manor Houses.

Designed by an award winning developer and architects, The Manor offers very sizeable units with stunning views of the Country Park. Hear the birds sing, walk amongst the bluebells and primroses in spring and watch the leaves on the trees pass through the seasons. Residents have direct access to the 150 acre park through a private gate.

ABOUT ENVIRON Founded in 1990 by leading property developer Tony Dowse, the multi-award-winning Environ team have developed a wide range of projects within the UK over the years, led by a strong guiding philosophy of sustainability, quality, localism and ‘New Urbanism’.

SUSTAINABILITY

to introduce the revolutionary and highly energy-efficient ‘Super E Housing’ from Canada, and director Tony Dowse has been an advisor to both the Liberty Property Trust and Land Securities – helping them on sustainable new village development.

QUALITY

ROOTED Environ’s commitment to the ‘environment’ extends to the local cultural environment too. This is key in a development such as The Manor. Environ ensure that all designs reflect the local vernacular (rather than a cheap ‘pastiche’) – using materials and design elements that are true to the local landscape and traditions. In this way, Environ properties complement their local environment, rather than fighting against it.

enthusiastically subscribes, promotes the design of living spaces that enhance the lives of those living within them. We design our properties to be as individual as possible, maximising light and space and a connection with the outdoors. For example, the properties at The Manor will all have beautifully landscaped gardens or balconies with views of the Country Park enticing you out to live, eat, entertain and relax surrounded by nature. Environ aim to create living spaces that nourish both mind and soul, and build developments that help create a sense of community amongst all those who live there – boosting both your health and happiness. This approach has led to Environ being commended by the Civic Trust, and the company has picked up several national landscaping awards, including Overall UK Winner of the Green Leaf Award.

A commitment to respect and protect the local ‘environment’ means Environ design properties and developments to be as energy-efficient as possible. The high levels of energy-efficiency found in Environ homes ensure fuel bills are kept to a minimum. In fact, Environ have been one of the foremost innovators in terms of environmental protection in the UK. They were the first developers

Only the best materials and the most talented architects and landscape designers are employed when building Environ properties and developments. Attention to detail through every aspect of the build is immediately apparent – from the smallest window catch to the overall design of the roofscape. Top quality, natural materials ensure not only that your home looks and feels superb, but that maintenance bills are kept to a minimum.
