All of the homes at Rookery Court feature large windows to provide plenty of natural light, while the cottages open through French doors to private rear gardens to make the most of the outside space.

Each property will be completed to a luxurious specification, including energy-efficient lighting, heating and insulation, landscaped gardens and construction of the highest quality, and every plot has a garage or car port.

The development will also include a luxurious guest house which is reserved for use by visiting family and guests, while a pretty pond and residents' allotments help to create a wonderfully peaceful setting for this secluded community.

Rookery Court is situated in a convenient location in the heart of the charming village of Marden, which boasts a variety of amenities including a library, convenience stores, a bank, a butcher, a dentist, a hairdresser, a medical centre, a pharmacy, a post office, a cricket club, two pubs and a historic local church.

Maidstone is just a short drive away and boasts a wealth of cultural, entertainment and leisure attractions. There is an excellent choice of high-street shops and independent retailers, while museums, art galleries and boat trips along the River Medway are an ideal day out, as is historic Leeds Castle.

The M20 is within easy reach, and the M25 is only 25 miles further on, while regular rail services to London run from Marden railway station and Ashford International offers quick links to the Continent.
