Situated just outside the Kent Downs, but less than 40 minutes from London by train and under 2 hours from Paris and Brussels on the Eurostar, Ashford has both the town and the country on its doorstep. Originally a medieval market town that still retains many of its traditional features, Ashford now also boasts great transport links, shopping centres, and has become a hub for new developments in the area. A popular place to live, reallymoving has helped over 462 people move into the area over the last 12 months.
From Kent to Sussex there are ranges of chalk hills – the North and South Downs – and, as a result, oak and clay form the basic materials of many old buildings in the region around Ashford. Faults with old tiling can also be a problem in the region. Older buildings using these materials often need to be surveyed on a deeper level with a Building Survey, rather than just a HomeBuyer Report which might suit other more modern properties in the area. Regardless of what you pick, a Chartered Surveyor is crucial and could save you a lot of money you would have to do on repairs in the future if a problem was not spotted.
Once settled into your new Ashford home, the town’s designer outlet and the south downs are just some of the attractions the city has to offer.
