The Beaulieu Heath development in Chelmsford has a range of new colonial-style homes, ready to move in to by Christmas
We all know that it can be difficult to get on the property ladder. A combination of rising house prices, stricter mortgage conditions and a fast-moving housing market where demand often outstrips supply means that first time buyers can find it a struggle to secure their first home.
However, good news is on the horizon and first time property buyers could soon be celebrating Christmas in their very own home at Beaulieu Heath development. Situated in expansive parkland on the outskirts of Chelmsford in Essex, Beaulieu Heath comprises 49 new colonial style houses, which are among the first to be made available in the new Beaulieu neighbourhood.
Help to Buy
The properties range from three to five bedrooms, and the three bedroom houses in particular are proving very popular with those who are downsizing and first-time buyers. The Government’s Help to Buy scheme makes it even easier for first-time buyers to buy a property at Beaulieu Heath. The scheme offers buyers a loan of up to 20% against the cost of the property, making it possible for first-time buyers to buy a home with just a 5% deposit.
Fixtures and Fittings
The houses at Beaulieu Heath have been designed by leading architects, with exterior weatherboarding giving the properties a distinctive look. Care has also been taken with the interiors, making sure they are finished to a high specification.
All houses feature open plan living-dining rooms (perfect for Christmas entertaining), individually designed kitchens with integrated appliances, ceramic flooring in bathrooms and kitchens, and gardens to the front and rear of the property. Most houses have a single or double garage and some even benefit from private roof terraces.
Technology is also an important consideration, and all homes will have fibre optic capability – perfect for people who work from home.
New residents in Beaulieu Heath will also benefit from a neighbourhood which boasts plenty of amenities. As well as three schools planned (two primary and one secondary), the area will offer health and community amenities, retail outlets and sports facilities, to ensure a vibrant and sustainable community.
What’s more, Beaulieu is less than 3 miles from Chelmsford city centre – a lively city offering great shopping facilities and a wide array of nightlife. It’s location means that the development offers a good balance between city and country life, and families on the development will enjoy an array of open spaces including play parks, meadows, dog walking areas and a community garden – all linked by a network of foot and cycle paths.
As with any housing development, strong transport links are key, and Beaulieu doesn’t disappoint in this area. The development will be connected to the A12 via a relief road and there are plans to develop a new railway station on the East Anglian main line. Furthermore, direct rail services run from Chelmsford to central London in as little as 35 minutes.
With well-designed houses, good amenities and a location that combines the best of countryside and city living, Beaulieu Heath looks certain to attract plenty of interest amongst first time buyers and others attracted by all the development has to offer.
With exciting developments in the pipeline, the estate is also likely to have a positive impact on the wider area, and property agents in Chelmsford are likely to see a surge of interest as more buyers view the city as an attractive proposition for their next property purchase.
