Location and lifestyle bring buyers to Basildon

St Nicholas Mews development in Basildon

A leafy location, family friendly local facilities and quick commuter links to London have helped make St Nicholas Mews a popular choice with buyers from Basildon and beyond.

The Redrow development has attracted a good mix of purchasers, including locals and those relocating.

Location has undoubtedly played a part in the success of St Nicholas Mews, but it also scores highly on specification.

Plus with Help to Buy equity loans available, the homes are an even more attractive prospect.

Kerry McCoubrey, sales director for Redrow Homes (Eastern), says: “Location is always high on buyers’ agendas and St Nicholas Mews couldn’t be better placed. It’s great for families as there are schools nearby. There are plenty of things to do close to home as the Festival Leisure Park features a cinema, bowling alley and a choice of dining options. For those who want to stay active the Basildon sporting village and Gloucester Park are within easy reach. The town centre is within walking distance, plus it’s easy to commute to London too.

“With so much going for the area, it’s no surprise that St Nicholas Mews is a popular choice, particularly when you factor in the advantages of buying a brand new home. The high specification we offer as standard means that while an older property may come with a cheaper price tag, it could be a false economy as it could cost up to £50,000 to bring it in line with a brand new Redrow home.”

Lang and Ann Essien have left London for a new life in Essex, moving from a former council flat near Peckham to a four-bedroom Redrow home.

“We fell in love with the area because of the green space,” Lang says. “The development is in a fantastic area with lots of open space – it’s not crowded like London, it’s much more peaceful.”

Current prices at St Nicholas Mews start from £434,995 for a four-bedroom semi-detached York style property, set out over three floors

There’s the option to reduce the initial cost by taking out a Help to Buy equity loan for a percentage of the price, lowering the size of the deposit and mortgage required.
