CLOSE to Langdon Hills Country Park, with a choice of schools nearby and London within a 40-minute commute, a move to Westley Green in Basildon could help balance work and family life.
The recently launched Redrow development currently offers a choice of three and four-bedroom properties.
Both the setting and the homes themselves offer purchasers the best of both worlds.
The location blends town and country with easy access to the town centre and commuter links to London, plus Langdon Hills Country Park is less than a mile away offering plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors close to home.
The design of the homes also has dual appeal. Inspired by the architecture of the Arts & Crafts era, they will look very traditional; while inside they will be very much geared towards modern living, with a high specification as standard.
Kerry McCoubrey, sales director for Redrow Homes (Eastern), says: “The new homes we’re building at Westley Green couldn’t be better placed, particularly for families. For example, the area is already home to a good choice of schools, plus the wider development includes plans for a new school. In the warmer months homeowners will be able to pack a picnic and enjoy a stroll or bike ride through nearby Langdon Hills Country Park, taking time to spot the animals and birds living there.
“Or if you prefer retail therapy to the getting back to nature, Basildon has plenty to offer between Eastgate Shopping Centre, Pipps Hill and Mayflower retail parks and for serious shopping, a trip to the Lakeside Shopping Centre is a must. If all that wasn’t enough of a draw, London is only 35 miles away and can be reached in just 35 minutes from Laindon station or 40 minutes from Basildon.”
Homes at Westley Green are now being sold ‘off plan’ via the nearby St Nicholas Mews development, also in Basildon.
Current prices at Westley Green start from £378,995 for a three-bedroom Letchworth, with four-bedroom designs available from £429,995.
Those who purchase ‘off plan’ will be able to access the exclusive members’ only area of the Redrow website where they can select from a range of options to personalise their property prior to moving in.
“The vast array of options available via My Redrow means that no two homes will be the same. Buyers can explore the different combinations at their leisure any time of day or night before making a commitment. Many of our customers have compared it to online shopping – it’s that simple and straight forward,” Kerry adds.
