Take a tour around The Birches

The Birches is our new development set amongst Ebbsfleet Valley, a beautifully-designed modern community incorporating new homes, commercial space and a host of innovative facilities. You could be living amongst acres of open public space connected by waterways, footpaths and cycle routes, all with a free public transport system.

Situated just south of the River Thames, Ebbsfleet is just 21 miles east of central London. Buying a new home here means you’ll be close to the bright lights of the capital yet close to the ‘Garden of England' and its Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Birches couldn't be better placed for commuting, with central London approximately 17 minutes away by train from nearby Ebbsfleet International.

As well as 400 acres dedicated to open spaces and parks throughout Ebbsfleet Valley, living at The Birches means you’re also not far from Swanscombe Heritage Park. Famous for its remains of Early Man, it also benefits from its more modern additions of an adventure playground, sports fields and walking trials. Darenth Country Park is also close by and is home to a children’s playground, a wildflower meadow and walking trails. Cygnet, Swanscombe and Cascades Leisure Centres are all within easy reach boasting a wide range of facilities for all ages.

Shop ‘til you drop at Bluewater

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping as The Birches is close to the world-renowned Bluewater shopping centre, boasting 330 stores, 40 cafes, bars and restaurants, and a 13-screen cinema. The development will eventually have its own local shop for your everyday necessities and nearby Gravesend is home to Sainsburys, Asda and Morrisons supermarkets for your weekly shop. Also within easy reach is Dartford town centre with its variety of shopping areas including the High Street and the Priory and the Orchards shopping centres.

When complete, Ebbsfleet Valley will also be home to a large education campus, including a primary and secondary school – both with a host of state-of-the-art facilities. This, together with the Bluewater shopping centre on your doorstep, acres of open green space and excellent transport links means The Birches is a great place to set up home for both young professionals and families alike.
