New homes worth the chase at Beaulieu’s latest neighbourhood

1st February 2016 Print
Beaulieu Chase

Introducing striking contemporary architecture set in a beautiful landscape, the latest phase of new homes has just been launched at Beaulieu in Chelmsford. Developers Countryside and L&Q are pleased to present Beaulieu Chase, a distinctive new neighbourhood that combines iconic architecture, luxurious interiors and sweeping parkland views, forming the second phase of the Beaulieu community.

Beaulieu Chase offers an outstanding collection of stylish modern homes attractively configured along tree-lined streets and garden squares or overlooking an expansive landscaped park known as ‘The Chase’. Properties are offered in a range of three to five bedroom layouts to suit a range of purchasers and lifestyles and are conveniently located close to the proposed amenities at Beaulieu Square, the new neighbourhood centre that forms the heart of the local community.

On the site of what was once King Henry VII’s estate, Beaulieu has a historic landscape that is now being transformed into a vibrant new community with up to 3,600 new homes alongside a wide range of facilities, new schools, transport connections, sports clubs and much more. Each phase of the development is designed with its own unique identity, so the Colonial style of the earlier Beaulieu Heath phase complements the modernist architecture of Beaulieu Chase.

Chris Bladon, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Eastern Region said: “Beaulieu Chase is an exciting proposition – its cutting edge architecture captures the attention but also sits comfortably within its environment, harmonising with the surrounding landscape. The homes are ideally designed for modern day family living and the proximity to amenities and transport, as well as peaceful green open spaces creates the perfect balance for those who will live here.”

The properties alongside ‘The Chase’ are instantly recognisable thanks to their gabled rooflines and crisp, clean colour palette. Designed to make the most of their park-side location, they boast twin balconies and roof terraces offering fantastic views. Three storey townhouses line the garden streets at the heart of the development, in a concept that takes its cues from the traditional Victorian garden square. These homes feature expansive glazing and generous roof terraces, again promising excellent views and opportunities for outdoor living and dining.

Green open spaces play a central role at Beaulieu, helping link the development to its wider environment. Bordering The Chase, is one of the main parkland areas for Beaulieu, incorporating various landscaped elements such as a recreation area with feature pond, mature oak trees, areas to encourage wildlife, cyclepaths and footpaths that link with the wider development, a village green and a shady area for playing boules.

All of the homes at Beaulieu Chase are meticulously designed on the inside as well, with a high quality specification and chic contemporary fittings and finishes. Stylish individually designed kitchens come with a range of integrated appliances, bathrooms have a luxurious hotel feel with elegant white sanitaryware, while carefully considered lighting creates the perfect ambience.

It is central to the vision for Beaulieu that first class amenities are provided to help the neighbourhoods grow and flourish. Two primary schools and a secondary school are planned, the first of these - a 420-place primary school - was recently given the go ahead. Sports facilities and community, health and retail amenities will also be developed, ensuring the development has an active community life from the outset. Investment in transport connections will also be key to the success of Beaulieu – the scheme includes a site for a new railway station on the East Anglian main line, as well as a new relief road connecting Beaulieu to the A12.

Given city status in 2012, Chelmsford is the county town of Essex and its historic centre offers excellent shopping and a vibrant nightlife. Its shopping centres and bustling high street offer all the big name brands, along with a wide choice of pubs, restaurants and wine bars, while the city is also renowned for its excellent schools, including its two top performing grammar schools and the nearby independent New Hall School, which occupies the former palace of the Beaulieu Estate. From Chelmsford station there are direct services to London Liverpool Street in as little as 34 minutes.

The homes currently available at Beaulieu Chase range from £450,000 for The Lantana, a three-bedroom house up to £894,995 for a 5 bedroom house overlooking the Chase. To register your interest in the new homes at Beaulieu, visit
