L&Q announces two new collections of Shared Ownership homes at The Arbour, Chelmsford

L&Q has announced the release of two brand-new collections of Shared Ownership homes at The Arbour, set within the highly sought-after and family-friendly neighbourhood of Beaulieu, Chelmsford. The autumn launches, which will take place on 16th September and the second later in Autumn, will bring new one-bedroom apartments, two- and three-bedroom houses and three-bedroom maisonettes to the development – responding to the significant demand for affordably priced homes for first time buyers in Essex.

A vibrant new district on the outskirts of Chelmsford, The Arbour will ultimately offer an impressive collection of 255 houses and apartments within the wider Beaulieu development. Buyers will have access to Beaulieu's exceptional on- site amenities, including shops, schools, and brand-new transport links, as well as acres of green space on their doorstep and surrounding lush countryside. L&Q’s two new launches will see families well-catered for, with a collection of two- and three-bedroom houses on offer in September, and new one-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom maisonettes released in the second launch.

Claire Brenlund, Sales and Marketing Director at L&Q, comments, “It's no secret that house prices in the South East of the country are incredibly high. The average price for a semi-detached property currently stands at £417,776, so we are proud to be offering a more affordable route onto the property ladder to local young families. The Arbour is a neighbourhood that has experienced a great deal of interest, with every phase of homes to date selling out within two weeks of the launch weekend, so the fact that we are bringing not one, but two collections of new Shared Ownership homes to market this autumn will help meet some of the demand."

“The Arbour is a really special development. The homes there have been built with the heritage of the local area in mind, taking inspiration from the more formal buildings in Chelmsford. They are contemporary, light filled and unique, providing the perfect place for modern families.”
