Roman towns are ever popular, and new research has revealed how their attractiveness has directly affected property values, outperforming the UK average by up to 80 per cent *. The historic Roman settlement of Colchester is as popular today as it was 2,000 years ago and award-winning home builder, Countryside will soon be launching its latest development in the town.

Make History with a New Home at Chesterwell

Chesterwell will include a range of 95 traditional style houses and apartments, designed to blend into the historic surroundings.

Chesterwell is Colchester’s newest community only minutes away from the town centre. Countryside at Chesterwell offers a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses and two bedroom apartments, which are expected to be in high demand. Boasting a traditional design, with features including subtle stone detailing and brick quoining, balanced with a modern internal specification, these homes are ideal for any discerning buyer.

Chesterwell is a distinctive and high-quality extension to north Colchester, that will benefit the already thriving community. In addition to the new homes, the development will also have a new primary and secondary school, following a successful joint bid by The Gilberd School, Colchester County High School for Girls and Manningtree High School, as well as proposed shops, community centre, cycle paths, allotments and sports pitches. And at the heart of Chesterwell will be a new country park with seating areas and a children’s play area.

Chris Bladon, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Eastern Region said: “This exciting development will be a great addition to Colchester, delivering traditional style properties that are ideal for families, downsizers and professional couples - particularly as the development is so close to the train station. The town is already a very popular destination and the area has some fantastic amenities, highly-regarded schools and beautiful countryside to explore, so we expect that there will be lots of families who want to make this new development their home.”

Conveniently located to the north of Colchester, Chesterwell is within easy reach of a wealth of amenities, including existing schools, supermarkets, a range of high street shops and independent boutiques, and a mix of lively bars, cafés and restaurants. The beautiful Castle Park is less than three miles away, as well as Leisure World, with its leisure and fitness pools, gym, spa, sports courts and pitches. The 18 hole Colchester Golf Club is also nearby, offering membership schemes, courses, bar and catering facilities. A David Lloyd Sports Centre has also recently opened nearby, where a proposed new cinema is also due to be built.

Chesterwell is located just two miles from Colchester train station, where frequent direct services into London Liverpool Street take under an hour, making Colchester a popular choice with commuters. The development also offers good access to the A12, meaning locations such as Ipswich, Witham, Chelmsford and London are all within easy reach. For travelling further afield, Stansted Airport is just 34 miles away, offering flights to Europe and beyond.

Guide prices for a two-bedroom apartment at Chesterwell start from £199,995 with houses from £229,995 and the popular Help to Buy scheme will be available meaning buyers will only need a 5% deposit.
