Crest Nicholson’s Ashford Story
Ashford is being called home by many new families who are taking advantage of some beautifully designed new villages.
Green Oaks, Captain’s Wood and The Village Centre are a selection of new, unique developments bought to you by developer Crest Nicholson. Each development offers a selection of new homes to the new village of Finberry in Ashford.
Finberry offers a glimpse into Ashford’s future; new communities that enhance what has gone before, that make the most of this amazing location. When complete the new Village of Finberry will provide 1,100 new homes. New Infrastructure is key to this project and the village centre will be home to a new primary school, community centre, sports facilities and play areas. Imaginative landscaping ensures that the development feels open and connected to the surrounding rural environment.
Crest Nicholson celebrated this success by winning the 2017 Sunday Times British Homes awards for “Outstanding Landscaping”. Andrew Dobson, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, said:
“This award win is a fantastic achievement for Crest Nicholson. At Finberry, there were significant natural and technical challenges we had to overcome to make the site viable, including building flood relief systems, two bridges and an access junction. However, these challenges provided us with a brilliant opportunity to use the site’s natural features to create a sense of arrival in harmony with the existing countryside.
“The site is key growth area for Ashford Borough Council, providing much needed housing and community assets and on top of this, we’ve worked hard to ensure that Finberry is a thoughtfully designed and beautifully landscaped development. To be named winner of the ‘Outstanding landscaping for housing’ is a real testament to the success of the team’s work.”
