LIVE AMONGST 11 ACRES OF GREENERY AT STONEBOND’S WOODBANKS
A recent study has discovered that eight million households lack access to green spaces despite the benefits to health and wellbeing that they provide. Stonebond’s brand new development, Woodbanks in Takeley, Essex, includes 11 acres of open space, placing nature and greenery on residents’ doorsteps. The show area at this development has just opened its doors and is set to attract a range of buyers with its well-connected location and spacious homes designed for modern living.
Woodbanks in Takeley, Essex
Woodbanks comprises 110 high specification three-bedroom bungalows, and three and four bedroom homes, ideal for families, upsizers and rightsizers. Each home’s exterior reflects notes of local architecture, allowing the properties to blend seamlessly into neighbouring communities. Energy-efficiency is at the centre of designs with carefully chosen materials to maximise insulation and an electric car charging point to every home. As well as the striking, sustainable homes available, the development will also feature new bird watching areas, dog walking routes and outdoor play areas across the site’s outstanding open space.
Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Stonebond comments:
“We are delighted to have recently launched Woodbanks and have already seen an impressive degree of interest in the available homes. The development is designed to have nature at its centre and the 11 acres of green space will be optimised by planting over 200 new trees. Sustainability is always at the core of our developments and this new woodland area, as well as our energy-efficient homes, reflect this. Takeley is exceptionally well placed, providing the ideal combination of modern conveniences and great transport links, without losing the scenic landscape.”
The quaint village of Takeley has a traditional, rural feel with a 13th century parish church, sports field, local pub and active community centre. The development is a 20 minute walk or three minute drive to the entrance of the National Trust’s Hatfield Forest; a 403 hectare biological site with a nature reserve, conservation centre and viewpoints across the lake. The Gardens of Easton Lodge, Great Canfield Park and Dunmow Park are also nearby so residents are never far from a beautiful outdoor escape to enjoy.
