Crest Nicholson unveils The Village Centre

Posted on 12 January 2018

Crest Nicholson has announced the launch of The Village Centre, the fourth phase at its hugely popular Finberry development in Ashford, Kent. The Village Centre comprises a collection of one and two bedroom apartments, two and three bedroom homes, and a range of three bedroom live/work units. They will be ready to move into from Spring 2018.

Forming part of Crest Nicholson’s Finberry development, The Village Centre offers residents easy access to a range of amenities, such as shops, a school and Finberry’s community centre. Homes at The Village Centre have been designed to reflect traditional Kentish architecture of the local area, and finished to the highest standard. With integrated Bosch kitchen appliances and fully-fitted contemporary white Roca Gap sanitaryware in the bathrooms, these homes come with good quality fittings and practical solutions to suit the needs of modern lifestyles.

All homes at The Village Centre are available to purchase on the Help to Buy scheme, which means that prospective buyers can secure their dream home with just a 5% deposit. A number of apartments are also available under £300,000, which means that first time buyers will not have to paid stamp duty on these plots.

The Village Centre boasts excellent transport links, with nearby Ashford International providing a regular high-speed train service into London St Pancras in just 38 minutes, while Paris is only two hours away by Eurostar*. The A20 and M20 are also close by, providing quick access to the nearby towns of Maidstone and Canterbury.

The development is also within easy reach of the Ashford International Designer Outlet, which has embarked on a £90m expansion which will add a further 50 luxury brands to the 80 already housed there.

Earlier this year, Finberry won the ‘Outstanding landscaping for housing’ award at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards, overcoming fierce competition from across the country. Once complete, Finberry will consist of 1,100 new homes, creating a sustainable new community in the heart of Ashford, which lies at the heart of the Garden of England.

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said:

“This new phase at Finberry brings more exceptionally designed homes to this flourishing development. We’ve worked hard to create a development with a village-like feel that also incorporates contemporary conveniences residents require. Following the popularity of the first three phases at Finberry, we look forward to welcoming more residents to these brand new high-quality homes.”

Homes at The Village Centre currently start from £320,000 for a three-bedroom house, and the Help to Buy scheme makes it possible to buy one of our new homes with just 5% deposit. To find out more about the Village Centre, call 01233 223133, or visit
