Taylor Wimpey is urging Essex property-seekers to hurry if they hope to secure their place at Waterside, Cook’s Shipyard, the leading housebuilder’s fast-selling collection of new homes for sale in Wivenhoe, near Colchester.

Home-hunters hoping to find their perfect property at Taylor Wimpey’s Waterside, Cook’s Shipyard development are being urged not to miss out – as just a handful of these beautiful brand new houses for sale in Essex now remain available.

There are now just four spacious designs to choose from at this tranquil and picturesque rivermouth development of property for sale in Wivenhoe, Colchester, which forms part of the attractive regeneration of the town’s historic docklands.

However, potential buyers worried about selling their existing home in time to secure one of these final properties to buy in Wivenhoe need not worry – as the leading housebuilder’s fantastic Part Exchange scheme is available with selected plots.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “It’s no surprise that the superb new homes in Wivenhoe at Waterside, Cook’s Shipyard are so popular with home-hunters and that we’re now down to our last few plots.

“I’d urge buyers to act without delay if they want to stand a chance of securing one of these final plots – and find out how they can make a quick and easy move to this stunning Taylor Wimpey Essex development, even if their current home isn’t yet on the market.”

Part Exchange offers customers a fixed price for their old property based on the average of independent valuations, so they know exactly how much they have to spend on their new property in Essex at the Taylor Wimpey Wivenhoe development.

With Taylor Wimpey as their cash buyer, they can relax in their existing place until their brand new Essex property at Waterside, Cook’s Shipyard is ready to move into.

The five-bedroom ‘Morley II’ detached house, priced £369,995, is just one of the wonderful homes on sale now with Part Exchange at the development.

This impressive property features a light and airy kitchen opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a spacious lounge, a separate dining room, a study, a handy utility room and a guest cloakroom completing the ground-floor layout.

Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to the en-suite master bedroom and an en-suite guest bedroom, plus another bedroom and a main bathroom, while on the top floor are two further bedrooms and a shower room. Outside, the property benefits from a garage and additional parking.

Alternatively, three-bedroom homes at the development are priced from just £249,995, while four-bedroom houses are available from only £319,995.

The picturesque waterfront setting offers the opportunity to relax and watch fishing boats and yachts pass by, while quaint, narrow lanes lead to a host of smart restaurants, bars and cafés, plus an enchanting range of independent shops, bakeries and boutiques selling fine foods, clothing, gifts and beautiful homeware.

Wivenhoe Sailing Club is close to the development, offering mooring opportunities and hosting races and many other events all year round, while walkers will enjoy the riverside footpaths out to the sea shore or to the vibrant and cultural town of Colchester just three miles upstream, where a wider choice of shopping, leisure facilities and schools are located.
