Stylish property in Essex enjoys a riverside setting
Property-seekers will have to hurry to secure their place at Taylor Wimpey’s Cook’s Shipyard development of new build homes in Essex – because just one final fabulous home remains up for grabs.
The stunning three-bedroom ‘Shalford’ terraced house is priced at just £249,995, and boasts an attractive double-fronted design and a spacious layout, as well as offering Essex property-seekers a wealth of appealing lifestyle options thanks to the development’s picturesque riverside setting.
This exceptional property is available with a 95% mortgage under the NewBuy scheme, so house-hunters will have to act quickly to stand a chance of making it their own.
Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “Our Cook’s Shipyard development of houses for sale in Essex enjoys a beautiful riverside location in sought-after Wivenhoe – and this is the final opportunity for one lucky purchaser to secure their place here.
“To be in with a chance of grabbing the final ‘Shalford’, would-be buyers should contact us immediately – before someone else beats them to it!”
The ‘Shalford’ features a spacious living room spanning the entire depth of the property and opening through French doors to the private rear garden, plus a contemporary kitchen, a separate dining room and a guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Upstairs, the landing leads to the en-suite master bedroom, two further well-proportioned bedrooms and a main bathroom, while outside the property benefits from a garage and additional allocated parking.
The property is completed to a high standard specification, including energy efficient central heating, double glazing and a fitted kitchen with integrated oven, hob and hood.
Under the NewBuy scheme, one credit-worthy purchaser can secure the final ‘Shalford’ with a 95% mortgage and a 5% deposit of just £12,500 – whether they are first-time buyers or have a home to sell. Full details of the initiative are available from the Sales Executive.
Cook’s Shipyard is part of the visionary regeneration of the former docklands area in Wivenhoe, which will also offer places of work and leisure opportunities set around the water’s edge.
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, which is just three miles upstream, where a wider choice of shopping, leisure facilities and schools are located.
Although the pace and quality of life at this sought-after location in Wivenhoe is restful, it’s also a very well-connected town, with Wivenhoe station just a short walk away from the development, offering direct rail services into London Liverpool Street in as little as 69 minutes.
The development also benefits from close proximity to the A12, putting the M25 within easy reach. For international travel, Stansted Airport is only 35 miles from the door.
