There has been a surge in numbers of house hunters in Essex, with some areas seeing an average of 26 buyers chasing each property*, causing a Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) among many. Award-winning developer, Countryside, is helping meeting the demand for homes at its newly launched development in Saffron Walden, Essex. Mandeville Place offers two brand new show homes and a view home where they can explore the beautiful interior design schemes courtesy of JSP Interiors.

Fight F.O.M.O with Help to Buy Homes at Mandeville Place

Situated on the outskirts of the charming market town of Saffron Walden, Mandeville Place in Radwinter is an exclusive development of 52 traditional-style homes bordering the green open space of an ecology park. The development includes a range of traditional two, three and four bedroom homes in nine different house designs, all of which are available to purchase with Help to Buy. Providing buyers with an opportunity to purchase a property with just a 5 per cent deposit which is then supplemented by up to a 20 per cent equity loan from the government, the scheme is interest free for the first five years. 

The Peregrine show home is an impressive four bedroom home spread over three floors. The ground floor features a large spacious living/dining/kitchen area, which forms the hub of the home. The first floor offers a master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a luxury en suite bathroom, plus two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. A further bedroom is on the second floor, with an en suite shower room and storage cupboard which is perfect for visiting guests or relatives.

The Sandpiper, is an attractive three bedroom show home offering an open plan living/dining area and a separate well equipped kitchen on the ground floor. Located on the first floor is the master bedroom which features an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes. The second and third bedrooms and the family bathroom are also on the first floor.

Mandi Boydell, Creative Director at JSP Interiors explains her thoughts and inspiration behind the stylish, family friendly show home design: “Saffron Walden is a beautiful market town and we wanted the show homes to reflect its atmosphere. The Peregrine reflects the earthy, brick reds of the walls and peg tiles of the town while the soft celadon green accent colours were inspired by the surrounding scenic farm land. The Sandpiper references the flora and fauna in the countryside with the pale warm grey and the subtle blue accents. We used rich cream upholstery fabrics teamed with soft limed wood furniture to enhance the country rustic feel for the family homes.”

Chris Bladon, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Eastern Region comments: “Saffron Walden is an historic, medieval market town with so many fantastic attributes. With such a rich heritage, residents can enjoy all that it has to offer as well as its commutability to central London and its close proximity to the south of Cambridge, just 15 miles away. Home to a historic market that started in 1141, the town offers not only a great history but also a variety of leisure and cultural activities.”

All homes at Mandeville Place will be built with traditional brick and render cladding in the typical Essex vernacular. A superb quality specification will feature throughout, with contemporary oak effect fitted kitchens and a full range of energy efficient integrated appliances whilst the modern, hotel-style bathrooms feature sleek fixtures and fittings. Flooring is included throughout in all homes.

Saffron Walden has a rich heritage of old buildings reflecting its wealth as a rural market town. The development is ideally located less than a mile from the many independent shops and eateries that line Saffron Walden high street, as well as a regular market, which has been held in the town since 1141. For families, there is also the Lord Butler Leisure Centre, a hedge maze, miniature railway and skate-park to enjoy nearby. A number of primary and secondary schools are within easy reach of the development.

Saffron Walden is well connected by road, rail and bus. London is 50 miles from Saffron Walden by car via the M11, making it easily accessible in around an hour. Alternatively, Audley End station is located three miles away and provides regular connections to London Liverpool Street in around an hour. It also provides access into Cambridge and offers fast links to Stansted Airport in around 15 minutes.

The Peregrine is currently on the market for £510,000 and The Sandpiper is currently available from £450,000.
