Situated on the site of the former Severalls Hospital, this eagerly-awaited development will offer a unique selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, including fabulous new-build designs and sensitively-refurbished properties – meaning there will be something to suit every type of purchaser.

Aspiring buyers can also register their interest in a new home via the Taylor Wimpey website, to ensure they’re kept up to date with all the latest information as it becomes available.

Michael O’Leary, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London, says: “We’re very much looking forward to unveiling Whitmore Park at Kingswood Heath, which will offer home-hunters in the area a fantastic opportunity to own a unique property in this popular Essex location.

“This exclusive development includes a combination of historic buildings which have been carefully restored to maintain and enhance their original Edwardian-style architectural features, alongside stylish new-build properties which incorporate the traditional character.

“Whitmore Park at Kingswood Heath is already generating a great deal of interest from hopeful buyers, so I’d advise aspiring homeowners to register for updates now to make sure they’re at the front of the queue when the first plots are released for sale in Spring 2017.”

Designed by architect Frank Whitmore, Severalls Hospital opened in 1913 and at its height could accommodate some 2,000 patients at any one time. The hospital closed in the early 1990s, although a small section remained open until 1997 as a temporary building for nearby Colchester General Hospital.

Taylor Wimpey has sensitively retained some of the original buildings and a water tower at the site, to faithfully mark the footprint of the hospital and offer a bespoke collection of high-quality new homes.

Surrounded by Essex’s lush countryside, Whitmore Park at Kingswood Heath lies within easy reach of Colchester’s thriving town centre with its vast selection of shopping and leisure opportunities – including a number of supermarkets and convenience stores, a selection of pubs and restaurants, plus an array of high street shops and cafes in the Lion Walk Shopping Centre.

Colchester Castle – home to the biggest keep built in the UK – and Colchester Zoo are both just a short drive away for days out, while Leisure World Colchester is also nearby and boasts excellent swimming and gym facilities for the whole family to enjoy.

Parents will appreciate that there’s a great choice of schools within walking distance of Whitmore Park at Kingswood Heath, including Myland Primary School and Brinkley Grove Primary School, which are both rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, and The Gilberd School for secondary-age pupils – also rated ‘Good’.

The development is well located for commuters, with the A12 providing links to Ipswich and Chelmsford, while Colchester railway station is less than two miles from home, offering direct and regular services to London Liverpool Street.
