Persimmon Homes


Home of the South East coastline, Kent is one of the UK’s home counties that border Greater London. Known as ‘The Garden of England’, new homes here have a wealth of orchards and oast houses, castles and coastlines on their doorstep. Making it the perfect commuter family-friendly location.


Buying a new build in Kent

Ideal for those who love interior design, new-build homes are a blank canvas that you can truly put your unique stamp on. They’re also energy efficient, which means your new home will be easier to heat in the colder months and reduce your monthly bills – giving you more freedom to explore everything Kent has to offer.

Living in Kent

A commuter haven

The M20, M2 and A2 run right through the county, and join the M25 as it circles around London. For travel by rail, the furthest point east in Kent is only two hours to London – making the county an ideal location for commuters in search of new houses that tick all the boxes.

For international travel, Gatwick Airport is, for example, around 40 minutes by car from Royal Tunbridge Wells. 

A nature lover’s paradise

A seaside haven, the North Sea-facing coast is visited by flocks of migrating birds that journey to the wetlands of the Romney Marshes and Isle of Sheppey each year. Plus, you have picturesque fishing towns, such as Folkestone, that offer relaxing coastal culture and seafood a plenty. 

For countryside walks the High Weald and the North Downs, Kent’s two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offer panoramic views and miles of beautiful scenery.

Key Kentish locations

From the White Cliffs of Dover to the seaside towns of Margate, you also have the towns of Broadstairs and Ramsgate that are traditional favourites along the coastline that joins East Sussex. 

Canterbury celebrates the history of England’s oldest cathedral, while Maidstone is the thriving county town.
