Date of Issue: 17th May 2012
Brand new family homes will be launched next month, in one of Essex’s most quintessential English villages, by leading UK house builder Higgins Homes. The multi award-winning developer will be unveiling its attractive new homes at Bridge Street, in Writtle (near Chelmsford), this June and is expecting the new mews development to be snapped up by eager buyers who are looking for the perfect blend of a country lifestyle and proximity to a major city.
Bridge Street is an attractive development of seven exclusive three, four and five bedroom homes, ranging from terraced houses, to semi-detached and detached homes. They have been carefully designed to blend with the manor and Victorian styling in the surrounding village, and feature generous room sizes and elegant Urban Myth Kitchens.
Each new home will also come with fitted integrated appliances by Siemens, including a fan assisted oven, built-in microwave and induction hob. Gardens will be laid with turf and paving and to reflect the standard of these homes Higgins Homes is even providing fitted timber sheds with cycle storage.
Each of the properties will also be built with the environment in mind, incorporating extra insulation, triple-glazed windows and efficient water appliances that meet CfSH targets of
Jeremy Marcus, Sales and Marketing Director of Higgins Homes, comments: “This is an extremely attractive and desirable location where demand for housing is falling short of supply. We have worked hard to ensure that these much needed new homes incorporate the existing style and character of the village and that they will be a welcome addition, especially for those who have been waiting for an opportunity to buy something special in a place like this.”
The charming village of Writtle sits in an envied location where the rivers Wid and Cam converge. It includes a traditional village green with a duck pond, a Norman church and Tudor houses, along with the 17th Century Blake Hall and neo-classical Hylands House nearby. Local village amenities include a variety of shops, cafes, pubs and a sports centre.
The village’s proximity to some of the best rolling Essex countryside as well as one of England’s newest cities, Chelmsford, also makes this an essential destination for those who enjoy the best of both worlds.
Chelmsford is only 2.5miles away, and has direct trains to London Liverpool Street taking around 35-40 minutes*, while the M11 and M25 are both approximately 20 minutes away by car.** Stansted Airport is about 18 miles away.
Prices for a three bedroom house start from £495,000, four bedroom homes begin at £530,000 and the five bedroom house is priced at £695,000.
Bridge Street will launch with the opening of its show home on Saturday 9th June at 11am. More details will be released closer to the date. Meanwhile, enquiries and off-plan reservations are already being taken through Higgins Homes on 01245 421 418 or visit www.higginshomes.co.uk
