Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey has responded to huge demand for its new homes at Arena Place in Colchester by announcing the release of a fresh collection of stunning properties.

Phase 2 at Arena Place – which comes hot on the heels of the hugely successful first phase within this popular new neighbourhood – will be unveiled on 4th February and is already generating a great deal of interest from savvy home-hunters.

This new selection of new build one two and three bedroom apartments offers additional choice for purchasers and complements the range of refurbished two and three-bedroom duplex apartments and two and four-bedroom houses that are currently available to reserve.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We’re delighted to be opening up even more opportunities for people to own a new home at Arena Place –

“We have some fantastic incentives available at the development to make home-buying even easier and more affordable. It’s a great opportunity to make a stress-free move to a brand new home in this wonderful location, which has already attracted a huge number of homebuyers!”

Taylor Wimpey has sensitively renovated a series of historic military buildings within Arena Place – the site of the former Administrative Headquarters Complex for Colchester Garrison Artillery Barracks – maintaining and enhancing their original architectural features and turning them into stunning new homes. The developer has also incorporated historic features within its own designs for associated new-build properties at Arena Place.

This unique refurbished property features a spacious open-plan kitchen/living/dining room with high ceilings and full-height windows, with a guest cloakroom off the internal entrance hallway. Upstairs, the landing leads to two double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a handy walk-in storage closet.

Colchester offers a wide variety of amenities for everyday living, including a range of supermarkets and convenience stores, a selection of pubs and restaurants, plus an array of high street shops and cafés in the nearby Lion Walk Shopping Centre.

For leisure opportunities, the town boasts several museums including Colchester Castle, which is home to the biggest keep built in the UK and provides opportunities for picturesque walks around the grounds. Arena Leisure Centre is also nearby to the development, while Colchester Zoo is just over three miles away.

Families will appreciate that Arena Place is situated within close proximity of a wide choice of schools and nurseries, including Butterfly Blue Day Nursery and St John’s Green Primary School, which was rated ‘good’ in its latest Ofsted report. For further education, The Sixth Form College Colchester is also nearby.

For commuters, Colchester Town railway station is just a short walk from Arena Place, and provides regular direct services to Colchester, London Liverpool Street and Walton-on-the-Naze. For road links, the nearby A12 provides routes north-east for Ipswich and south-west for Chelmsford and Romford.
