Eaton housetype at Cottingham Park

Market towns are more popular than ever for homebuyers, not least because, they are the happiest places to live in Britain, according to findings by the Office for National Statistics. Furthermore, properties in market towns also enjoy better equity gains, as revealed by Lloyds Bank, which suggested market town homes see on average £25,000 more uplift in value than their counterparts . Money-savvy house hunters looking to play happy families in Essex, should look to Bellway’s Cottingham Park development in Great Chesterford, Essex, which is just outside of the market town of Saffron Walden.

Karen Coulson, Sales Director Bellway Homes Essex, comments: “Over the past ten years, the average house price in market towns has risen by 34%, - around £505 per month - making the homes at Cottingham Park a great long term investment. The collection of homes available here are truly beautiful properties offering plenty of adaptable space perfect for families to be happy and grown in. With the continued price growth providing a healthy cushion of equity, purchasers can cash in and downsize once their children have grown up and moved out.”

Exemplifying the family homes on offer at Cottingham Park, the new Eaton housetype at the development encapsulates perfectly what Bellway has to provide for homebuyers. Contemporary kitchens offer laminate worktops and stainless steel finishes, while all bathrooms and en-suites include cool white sanitary ware and chrome ironmongery. Living spaces are open and airy, and bedrooms are spacious and light-filled.

The new homes are ideal for everyone, ranging from the first time buyer to growing families to downsizers. The development is located next to an abundance of green space where residents can explore the Essex countryside, as well as enjoying the local amenities on offer.

For families, Great Chesterford Church of England Primary Academy lies within the village, less than ten minutes’ walk from the development. There are also a number of good schools in the surrounding area catering for pupils aged five to 18.

Closer to home, Great Chesterford offers a range of local amenities, including a community centre which is the hub of village life, a recreation ground home to bowls, cricket and football clubs, and several local pubs within walking distance. Just eight minutes’ drive away, the market town of Saffron Walden boasts a wider selection of shops, leisure facilities, cafes and restaurants.

Great for commuters, Cottingham Park is ideally located to benefit from the village’s excellent road connections. The M11 links with Cambridge, London and Norwich, as well as the A1(M) for journeys further afield. Less than 2km from the development is Great Chesterford train station, from where direct trains to Cambridge take as little as 16 minutes, with London Liverpool Street only 70 minutes away. For international travel Stanstead airport is less than 20 miles from the development.

Prices at Great Chesterford start from £334,995 for a two bedroom bungalow, from £349,995 for a three bedroom home, and from £624,995 for a five bedroom home.
