Moving to Maidstone
If you are moving to the county town of Maidstone in Kent, you will love the fact that it is a springboard for superb countryside, and only 32 miles south-east of London. Many take to the chalky ridge of the Kent Downs at the weekend for a walk to Dover. If shopping is more your thing, you can indulge in big-brand retail therapy at Fremlin Walk outdoor shopping centre.
Town centre living may not appeal to everyone, but the nooks of terraces and period homes between town and Mote Park are irresistible to many. For family suburbs, Loose and Buckland Lane have some great properties. For Victorian and Edwardian detached properties, head to the patch of Maidstone between Royal Engineers’ Road and Sittingbourne Road.
The majority of properties in Maidstone are semi-detached, and have gradually increased in price over the last few years, with average selling prices of £400,000. Detached properties averaging £615,00 and Flats around £200,000.
