The onset of the Covid lockdown, reaching life milestones and the desire for more space has meant the number of homes outside the capital being purchased by Londoners has risen to the highest level for four years.  One location that has piqued the interest of many homebuyers exiting the capital is the popular town of Essex, where Peabody is launching the next exciting phase of homes at Limebrook Walk on Thursday 21st January. Located in the historical Essex market town of Maldon, buyers can choose from a delightful collection of one and two bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom houses available to buy with Shared Ownership.

Occupying a superb setting close to the tranquil surroundings of the Essex countryside, Limebrook Walk is situated on the outskirts of Maldon, nestled near the banks of the River Blackwater. Known as the second oldest town in Essex and for its connection to the coast, this historic maritime town received a Royal Charter from Henry II in 1171 and plays host to a rich and unique heritage. Ideal for buyers looking for a new out-of-city home with easy links into London, this stylish collection is sure to tick the boxes of a wide range of buyers, from young couples and first time buyers wanting to get on the property ladder, to growing families looking to take advantage of the lower price tag and extra space that comes with moving away from London.

Andrew Peglau, Assistant Director of Marketing at Peabody comments: 

 

“Whilst living in London can offer an exciting lifestyle, there has definitely been a shift in what buyers want from the location they live in, balanced with getting more value for their money. By considering areas like Essex and other home counties, homebuyers can enjoy the lifestyle benefits of the surrounding countryside, with London still very much within an easy commute. Limebrook Walk offers a fantastic opportunity to purchase a new home with the lower-level deposit through Shared Ownership, our first phase of homes sold out at launch and we expect demand to be high and urge prospective purchasers to register their interest as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

All of the Shared Ownership apartments and houses at Limebrook Walk have been built to a very high standard, and offer the usual impressive specification found in a Peabody home. A selection of thoughtful layouts provide spacious and flexible accommodation that can easily be zoned for cooking, relaxing and working from home. Kitchen/living/dining areas are open plan and all feature access to a Juliet balcony or terrace in the apartments or a garden with each house. Kitchens are stylish in design and come complete with underside LED lighting and a range of high-quality integrated appliances. Bedrooms are generously sized and bathrooms offer a contemporary hotel-style feel with chrome detailing and finishes. Each house and all of the apartments enjoy access to landscaped gardens, there are outdoor children’s play areas as well as car parking and secure bicycle storage for all residents.

There is plenty for local residents to enjoy once government restrictions are eased. A must-see venue is nearby Hythe Quay, a beautiful waterside setting lined with a selection of pubs and restaurants less than two miles from Limebrook Walk. Nearby award-winning Promenade Park is a great place for all ages, and its green open spaces, lake, splash park and adventure golf course offer a summer haven for local residents. For those who want to experience Essex’s wilderness, National Trust’s Northey Island is a short drive from the development. Maldon itself is host to a medley of characterful streets and well-known high street shops, and a selection of café’s, bars and restaurants. For those who have school age children, residents at Limebrook Walk are within easy distance of a number of well-regarded nurseries, schools and colleges.

For getting around town and travel, there are plenty of transport links to choose from. There is an excellent network of road links which puts the nearby hubs of Chelmsford, Colchester and Southend-on-Sea within a one-hour drive of Limebrook, and the A12 provides links to London via the M25. Both Chelmsford and Hatfield Peverel train stations are nearby and provide fast links into London and beyond. A new bus route will also run through Limebrook Walk connecting residents to the rest of Maldon.

Prices at Limebrook Walk start from £60,000 for a 30% share in a one-bedroom apartment, and from £90,000 for a 30% share in a two-bedroom semi-detached house.
