An exciting brand new development comprising a three bedroom duplex apartment and two three storey houses set in an idyllic town center location. Full property description An exciting brand new development in the heart of Colchester’s historic town centre. Offering an ideal place to buy your first home. If your looking for an investment look no further with a strong rental market in Colchester the yields you will achieve from this exciting development are worth a look. History surrounds you as you walk the streets of Colchester. From its Roman walls and Norman castle, to its fine Georgian townhouses and the iconic ‘Jumbo’ water tower, the town is unique in being home to buildings of almost every period over the last 2,000 years. But it’s no tourist trap – it’s a beautiful, vibrant town with a strong identity built on its past, combined with aspirations for a bright future and living in in this development, you’ll soon experience both at first hand. Close by you have some simply stunning areas which include The Dutch Quarter. It’s the beautifully preserved area where Flemish migrants settled in the 15th century after escaping religious persecution in Holland and Flanders. More than 500 had arrived by 1575 and because many of them were highly skilled weavers Colchester soon became famous for the quality of their cloth, known as bays and says. Many original, timber framed houses survive to this day, lending this historic conservation area a quirky charm and making it the most desirable residential location in central Colchester, popular with city-based professionals and longstanding residents alike. Enthusiasm, creativity and a strong sense of community make Colchester such a rewarding place to live. There’s a thriving arts and music scene, with first class venues ranging from the artistic hub Firstsite and the popular Mercury theatre, right through to the quirky creative community centred around The Waiting Room and the brilliant gigs staged at The Bull. When it’s time to chill or explore, you can experience the renowned Colchester Zoo, the outstanding countryside of the nearby Dedham Vale and the beaches of Mersea, home to their world famous oysters. A relaxed setting, a cosmopolitan culture and a deep sense of community. But if you work in the capital or you find the lights of London calling, you can be back in the City in under an hour. This development is only a short walk from both of Colchester’s railway stations and there are regular trains to the capital all through the day and long into the night. Direct trains take as little as 54 minutes, meaning you’re never far away from the metropolis.
