Brand new community set to contribute over £1.1m to Sittingbourne

On Thursday 30th June, David Wilson Homes will launch its latest development in the picturesque village of Borden, just outside of Sittingbourne. Applegate Park, whose name draws on the attractive orchards that surround Sittingbourne, will bring three and four-bedroom family homes to the community.

As part of its Section 106 agreement, David Wilson Kent is set to invest over £1million into the local economy, including £153,225 to local libraries, over £86,000 to NHS Swale healthcare facilities, and over £657,000 to local primary and secondary schools.

Eager buyers looking to purchase off-plan at Applegate Park will be invited to visit the new sales cabin at nearby Perry Court, just a short drive away in Faversham. With the first phase of homes launching off-plan this summer, buyers will be able to watch their brand new home being built from the ground up. All 675 homes at the development have been built with sustainability in mind, complete with energy efficient boilers and high levels insulation, meaning that a buyer could save up to £1,410 on their energy bills each year, compared to an updated Victorian equivalent.1

Ideally designed to promote healthy outdoor living, Applegate Park will include an onsite rugby club and dedicated sports pitches, alongside three acres of green open space, including community allotments, over three acres of bee friendly planting, and three biodiversity areas. The village’s rural setting offers new homeowners the opportunity to access a wealth of countryside walks, while Sittingbourne town centre is just 1.4 miles away, offering an array of shops and restaurants, including an artisan market.

Natalie Perry, Sales and Marketing Director for David Wilson Kent, comments: “Families will find no end of things to do at Applegate Park. Our homes have been designed with family living in mind, offering plenty of living space downstairs, and spacious bedrooms upstairs. Outside, the development has been designed to offer outdoor space to explore, alongside sports and gardening facilities. Plus, with a brand new primary school being built on site, parents will be able to walk their children to school each morning.

“Sittingbourne is a fantastic place to live, set on the edge of The Swale channel, and with the Kent Downs AONB to the south. While coast and country are never too far away, residents can also enjoy the comforts of the shops and restaurant amenities at their fingertips, thanks to a recent period of investment and regeneration in the town.”

Sittingbourne Station is just a five minute drive from Applegate Park, offering regular services to London St Pancras in less than an hour. Key road links offer speedy access to Canterbury, Maidstone and Ashford in 30, 25 and 45 minutes respectively.

Currently available at Applegate Park is a collection of three and four-bedroom houses, with prices starting from £604,995 for a four-bedroom home.
