The Burrows, a brand-new collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes from award winning developer Crest Nicholson, is set to launch in Colchester, Essex, in spring 2019, with the first homes ready to move into in summer 2019.

Located on the edge of the charming village of Earls Colne, the high-specification new houses will be extremely energy efficient with contemporary interiors and traditional exteriors in keeping with the style of the local area.

The village’s picturesque High Street offers all the amenities of a traditional English village, benefitting from a host of independent shops including a local family butchers, florist and pharmacy. For a wider array of shops, restaurants and supermarkets, the towns of Colchester and Braintree are only a short drive away.

For nature lovers, there is a network of walking trails on their doorstep, starting from near the development so families can enjoy the great outdoors in addition to spending time together at the local swimming pool at Halstead Leisure Centre.

Families will be well-served with the choice of local schools, including Earls Colne Primary School, which is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, Thurstable School Sports College and Sixth Form Centre, also rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

For those who commute into London, The Burrows is within easy reach of both Kelvedon and Marks Tey stations, which offer direct trains every half an hour into London Liverpool Street with a journey time of under an hour.  

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “Locations like Earls Colne are hugely sought-after thanks to the lifestyle on offer here. The village has a real countryside feel yet is extremely well-connected with road links to Colchester and further afield, and easy access into London. At weekends, residents will be able to make the most of nearby countryside and brilliant independent shops, pubs and restaurants.
