Showhome Tees Off On Former Golfing Site


A new showhome at a housing development in Chatham will give visitors the first chance to see what life could be like at the site.

Bellway Kent has unveiled the first showhome at its Crown Fields development, off Street End Road, a 2.5-storey, four-bedroom house with a complete interior design fitting throughout the property.

The Morris property will give prospective purchasers an insight into the design and build quality of the range of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes being built at Crown Fields.

The development is located on a former golf driving range and Bellway has paid homage to the site’s past by naming the house types after famous golfers, such as Woods, Mcllroy and Palmer.

When completed, the development will comprise a total of 131 houses and apartments, of which 119 will be available for private sale with the remaining 12 being provided as affordable housing.

Mark Harrop, Sales Director of Bellway Kent, said: “We have had a tremendous amount of interest at Crown Fields since we launched the development in September last year, from people who already live in Chatham and those thinking of moving to the area.

“With a wide mix of apartments and houses available, Crown Fields has something for people at all stages of the property ladder. The price range of the homes makes them particularly attractive to first-time buyers, with two-bedroom houses currently available from £269,995 and all homes will be available with no stamp duty to pay until 31 March 2021 and are available with the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, for all home buyers until April 2020.

“The showhome at Crown Fields will give visitors a real insight into what life could be like here, so I would encourage anyone interested in moving to this popular development to come and take a look inside.”

Stamp duty is not currently required to be paid on any home priced up to £500,000 in England, following the chancellor’s announcement of a tax relief holiday in July, which will run until 31 March 2021.

With the government-backed Help to Buy scheme, purchasers of a new build home can reserve a property with a five per cent deposit and secure an initial 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent of the property’s value is provided as an equity loan which remains interest-free for the first five years of home ownership.

The sales office at Crown Fields is open from 10am to 5pm on Thursday to Mondays. For more information, call 01634 472875 or visit
