The second collection of new houses to be released at Beaulieu, offering iconic, contemporary style family houses ranging from two to five bedrooms.
Beaulieu Chase is set within a well-thought out landscaped area. Many of the homes offer picturesque views over the park or garden streets – a concept based on the Victorian garden square which provides a pleasant green outlook. The homes are close to the new neighbourhood centre and proposed schools, meaning Beaulieu Chase is perfectly positioned for modern family life.
Beaulieu benefits from a landscape led approach and will result in a series of distinctly designed neighborhoods, cleverly linked by extensive open spaces and landscaping, helping to connect the development with the surrounding countryside.
In the immediate vicinity a new neighbourhood centre with shops, restaurant, day nursery, community and health care facilities is to be delivered to ensure a vibrant community hub from the outset. In the longer term the development is also set to benefit from 176 acres of green open space, new schools, relief road connecting through to the A12, train station plus a business park.
Beaulieu Chase couldn’t be better placed to take advantage of existing and proposed new transport links.
The development is approximately 3.6 miles from Chelmsford City Centre, which offers direct rail services to London Liverpool Street in approx. 35 mins and Ipswich in approx. 40 mins. What’s more, Beaulieu is set to benefit from its own mainline railway station on the East Anglian main line, which is due to be developed by Network Rail.
For those travelling by road, the A12 can be easily reached and a proposed new relief road connecting Essex Regiment Way through to Junction 19 of the A12 is set to make this even easier.
For domestic and international flights London Stansted Airport is under 21 miles away from the development.
Home to two of the country’s leading grammar schools, Chelmsford offers first class education facilities across all school years.
Beaulieu residents will benefit from several existing primary schools in the immediate area from day one. Two proposed new primary schools plus a new secondary school will be built at Beaulieu in the near future.
Neighbouring the highly regarded New Hall Independent School, Beaulieu is also ideally placed for those seeking private education. Open to pupils aged three through to sixth form, it provides first class facilities on its historic 85-acre campus.
Chelmsford is a bustling city with a pedestrianised shopping precinct offering the well-known High Street names including Debenhams, Marks & Spencer, Next, Gap and H & M. The city boasts two shopping malls, High Chelmer and The Meadows and a variety of specialist retail outlets; Moulsham Street and Baddow Road are particular favourites with many chic boutiques and an array of specialist shops.
The first phase of development at Beaulieu will include a neighbourhood centre which incorporates shops, a restaurant, day nursery plus community and health care facilities.
Leisure and sports enthusiasts will enjoy living in Chelmsford. Essex County Cricket Club is based at the Country Ground, and the Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre has an ice rink as well as a large swimming pool and fitness centre. The Civic and Cramphorn theatres stage a variety of entertainments from drama to live music and from comedy to pantomime.
“Beaulieu has a great location, with everything you need close by and we love the close knit community that has developed. There is plenty of green space to enjoy and the houses are well spread out, which is not necessarily what you expect from a new build development. We did look at homes on other developments in the area, but decided Beaulieu was definitely the place to stay. The Part Exchange scheme ensured the moving process was really quick and easy and certainly took the stress out of moving home.”

“Personally, I always thought we would buy a period property, but when we came to look around we were so impressed by the design and space of the new-build home. A few of our friends have now bought new and I think more and more people are realising they are actually affordable because of the different purchase schemes available. We used the Help to Buy scheme, we wouldn’t have been able to move to Beaulieu without it. Countryside explained it all to us and made the whole process extremely easy.”
