Kent’s picturesque Nevill cricket ground now shares its name with four attractive semi-detached houses on a quiet tree-fringed development in Southborough.
The exclusive new homes at Rocks Hollow which carry the Nevill branding are sturdily built four-bedroom, three-bathroom houses, each with two off-street parking spaces and each on sale at £675,000.
Constructed by Brookworth Homes, a modern-day byword for quality building, a viewing house is open from the 14th of July. But why Nevill, and where did that distinctive spelling originate?
Located a mile outside the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells in Warwick Park, the Nevill ground has echoed to the sound of leather on willow for 120 years as one of Kent’s three main county cricket venues. It acquired its name from the family of the original owner of the land, William Nevill, Marquess of Abergavenny, a moustachioed Eton-educated man-about-town. He turned up in person to officially open the sporting venue in 1898, and it quickly gained a reputation as one of the most beautiful county grounds in the UK; fringed with brightly flowering rhododendron bushes in front of a backdrop of tall trees. The great cricket writer and historian EW Swanton described the Nevill as “no mean contender for the most delectable English cricket ground”.
And like the cricket ground, Rocks Hollow has plenty to shout about when it comes to enchanting settings. Each of the four houses with the Nevill branding has a landscaped front garden, while all nine homes within the exclusive development are surrounded by mature trees, offering shade and privacy in the High Weald’s area of outstanding natural beauty.
Each is built to Brookworth’s exacting standards, and features a large open-plan kitchen/dining area, opening out on to the back garden; perfect for entertaining friends and making the most of family life. With a 10-year comprehensive warranty, built in alarms and double glazing, the homes are well-equipped and contemporary, while staying true to the traditional Kent look, blending in with the architecture in this leafy area.
On the ground floor, underfloor heating keeps everything cosy – a standard Brookworth new-build feature which reduces fuel bills and eliminates wasted radiator space, and consequent room layout restrictions.
Come and take a look at the Rocks Hollow show home – a great opportunity to experience the quality of the homes ready for family living. Show home and The Nevill view home open on Saturday the 14th July with viewings by appointment only.
