The first collection of Colonial style family houses at Beaulieu, ranging from two to five bedrooms, designed to suit today’s modern lifestyles. These properties have proved to be very popular, thanks to their appealing traditional style architecture and wide range of internal layouts available.
Adjacent to parkland yet close to the new neighbourhood centre and proposed schools, these new homes are perfectly positioned within the development and are rapidly becoming the most desirable new homes in Chelmsford.
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 Heath 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 following a £22m investment from Beaulieu.
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 good 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.
“We visited the development on the opening day and were greatly impressed with the overall design of the development, with its attractive landscaped entrance, colonial style homes and warm ambience. We immediately reserved a four bedroom townhouse, as we loved the overall design which provided light filled, spacious rooms and a good sized garden for the children, a roof terrace from the master bedroom and a great specification."

“The more we looked at the show home and learnt more about what was going on at Beaulieu, the more it appealed to us and our lifestyle. The quality of the house was very clear from the start, the specification is a lot higher than what we had seen in other new build homes. When we came across Beaulieu, we spoke with a friend who works in the construction industry and they confirmed that Countryside’s homes are renowned for being a different class in terms of the fittings and fixtures offered.”
