New three-bed showrooms launch today in Dover

Three-bed houses are gaining in popularity according to Rightmove research

Recent research by Rightmove has revealed that demand for three-bedroom properties has rocketed over recent weeks. So it seems good timing that local housebuilder Barratt Homes is helping to meet demand from buyers in Dover. Barratt Kent will today unveil the first three-bedroom show homes and a dedicated sales suite at its popular Richmond Park development in Whitfield. Local buyers will be invited to make an appointment with a member of the sales team or to view either of the two show homes from Saturday, June 26.

Barratt Kent launched its popular Richmond Park development off-plan in January this year, offering an initial selection of three-bedroom homes. Visitors to the development will now be able to view first-hand the Maidstone and Moresby show homes, both of which are available to buy at Richmond Park.

The Maidstone presents a modern open plan layout, with the lounge leading into a spacious kitchen/diner to the rear, where French doors open into the garden. The Moresby offers buyers an alternative layout, with a spacious dual-aspect lounge and a separate hallway leading to the kitchen, with three bedrooms upstairs.

Natalie Perry, sales and marketing director at Barratt Kent, comments: “What many people don’t realise is how versatile a three-bedroom home actually is. Much like how no two buyers are the same, the Maidstone and Moresby both demonstrate how the classic three-bedroom home can reflect the lifestyle of its owners, whether they want to make the most of large open-plan family spaces, or needing a quiet retreat to work from home.

“What’s more, all three-bedroom homes at Richmond Park are available with Help to Buy, meaning that homeownership is more affordable than ever before. First time buyers have the opportunity to purchase a larger first home with lower upfront costs, as just a 5% deposit is required.”

Richmond Park is located in the historic town of Whitfield, on the outskirts of Dover. Once complete, the development will be home to a flourishing community, with a new primary school and convenience store onsite. Local amenities include a village hall, local pubs and cafes, and a post office. Further afield is the Honeywood Retail park.

Just a short drive away is Dover, where residents can enjoy coastal walks along the famous white cliffs, and reach the continent in ease from the ferry port.

Currently available at Richmond Park is a collection of three-bedroom homes with prices starting from £309,995. To find out more about Richmond Park or to arrange a virtual viewing, visit or call 0333 355 8502.

He has also worked for the following dailies/nationals: Daily Express, Today*, News of the World* and Hong Kong Star*. All those marked with an asterisk no longer exist (trend emerging?). He owned and edited a Thailand-based property magazine before returning to England and currently works as a production editor on a car fleet magazine. His first foray into property ownership saw him move from London to Rainham (the Gillingham, Kent, variety). He has subsequently lived in Chislehurst, Petts Wood and Orpington in the Borough of Bromley (which he still regards as being in Kent). In more recent years he owned three different properties on the Kings Hill (West Malling) development.
