New homes in West Malling will help local people get on the ladder

Malvern Brick CgiClarion Housing Group is delighted to unveil a selection of stunning new homes near West Malling, Kent, for buyers who are locked out of the housing market.

The UK’s largest affordable housing provider has launched 16 new homes at Ryarsh Park which are available through shared ownership, including two-and-three bedroom houses. 

Buyers can secure a 50 per cent share of a two-bedroom home for £168,000 (which has a full market value of £336,000). Three-bedroom homes start from as little as £163,800 for a 40 per cent share (the full market value is £409,500). 

The development is reached via a road that runs alongside a beautiful public space with a lake, trees and foliage.  The homes themselves have been designed with families and young professionals in mind.

By combining bright contemporary interiors and flexible open-plan layouts with economical design features, Clarion is aiming to ensure that there is a minimal impact on both cost and the environment.

Clarion has provided fully fitted kitchen units and selected appliances, while in the bathroom, items have been chosen to create a light and relaxed atmosphere. Each home also boasts its own outdoor space. 

Connectivity

Ryarsh Park is ideally situated in the Kent countryside and is within easy reach of Maidstone. It is also extremely well connected to London - regular trains run from West Malling station to London Victoria, usually taking just under 60 minutes.

The A20 and M20 are both close by, providing excellent connections throughout the South East.

For international travel, Gatwick Airport is only 35 miles away, while the ports of Folkestone and Dover are just over 40 miles in distance.

West Malling is well known for its many historic buildings, and includes a Norman keep commissioned by the same bishop who built the Tower of London. It is also home to a number of other medieval buildings, and the charming high street is mostly from the Georgian era.

Today, West Malling is well served for modern amenities. There is a good range of local shops, including a Post Office, Tesco Metro store, the Abbey Arcade, alongside GP and dentistry practices.

For education, you have the “Outstanding”-rated Ryarsh Primary – which is close to the development – and Offham Country Primary (“Good with Outstanding features”). Older pupils can choose from the Malling School (rated “Good”) or various schools in Maidstone.
