With more than 300 visitors over the opening weekend, the launch of the Halling development points to growing consumer confidence in the housing market.

  • St Andrews Park, a £75m lakeside development of family homes and apartments by Redrow Homes, was officially opened by the mayor of Medway, councillor Josie Iles.

    The marketing suite and show homes are now open to the public.

    Kerry Jenkins, head of sales for Redrow in the south east, says: "We are delighted that the mayor of Medway has officially opened our new flagship development St Andrews Park.

    "We've already had a phenomenal response to the launch, with more than 300 people visiting the development over the opening weekend and strong interest in many of the properties.

    "The high demand here certainly reflects the optimism that the banks, analysts and industry bodies are showing in the housing market and its recovery thanks to improved mortgage affordability, low interest rates and Help to Buy."

    St Andrews Park will eventually feature 385 brand new properties, from one bedroom apartments to luxury four bedroom detached houses, including 96 affordable homes.

    The development will transform the site of the former Cemex factory beyond recognition, providing new homes next to the blue lake, an old chalk quarry fed by a large spring.

    Combining Arts and Crafts-inspired traditional exteriors, the properties are all from Redrow's sought-after New Heritage Collection. Homes feature contemporary interiors with an emphasis on convivial open plan spaces for modern family living and thoughtfully planned kitchens incorporating top brand name appliances.

    Jenkins added: "It's a fantastic location set against the backdrop of chalk cliffs, looking down to the River Medway and across the Medway valley. This development is set to provide hundreds of new high quality homes to meet demand locally.

    "Redrow will also be providing more than £2.5m towards local community initiatives and infrastructure improvements."

    Price start from £175,995 to £399,995.

    St Andrews Park enjoys excellent commuter links, with the M20 and M2 both around three miles away and London just 32 miles away. Trains from Halling station reach London in little over 45 minutes. The village itself has a Post Office and local shop while Bluewater Shopping Centre is just 13 miles away.
