Apparently, love at first sight also applies to the UK property market, as research from Ocean Finance shows that over two thirds of homebuyers know instantly or by the end of a viewing if they want to move in. Offering an exquisite collection of attractive two, three and four bedroom homes in Braintree, Bellway’s Silk Meadows development offers plenty for purchasers to fall in love with.

Gemma Bannister, Divisional Sales Manager of Bellway Homes Essex comments: “First impressions can mean everything when choosing a new home, and our selection of houses at Silk Meadows are beautifully presented and offer lots of special features to turn buyer’s heads. There is much to fill the desires of expectant purchasers in Braintree too, with the well-connected and rural setting complementing the timeless and classic design of the homes.”

Silk Meadows is ideal for a range of homebuyers, from first time buyers through to downsizers, with excellent local amenities and an abundance of outdoor space.

A perfect example of the homes at Silk Meadows is the three bedroom Campbell housetype, priced from £284,995. The living room at the front of the house is spacious, while the kitchen is open plan with a large dining area, making the Campbell ideal for entertaining. The dining area boasts French doors that open to the rear garden and provide plenty of light. The first floor has two bedrooms and a master bedroom with an en suite shower room, a family bathroom, and plenty of storage.

All of the bathrooms are completed to a modern specification finished with chrome finishes and white sanitaryware. The contemporary kitchen provides an integrated Zanussi stainless steel oven with a gas hob, cooker hood and stainless steel splashback.

Residents’ love affair will continue outside of the development too, with lots of pursuits and entertainment on offer in Braintree. The nearby 100 acre Great Notley Discovery Centre and Country Park is a great family day out with play trail, fishing and cycle hire. Hedingham Castle also holds a variety of annual events, and neighbouring Stisted is home to Braintree Golf Club, the third oldest course in Essex.

Shopaholics are well catered for with the Freeport designer outlet and retail park just a three minute drive from Silk Meadows, while Braintree town centre is home to a variety of high street names just over a mile from home.

Located a short drive from the A120, the development is also 20 minutes to the M11, with links to the M25 for travel further afield.
