Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has recently launched an exclusive new collection of 30 homes in Earls Colne, Essex.  The Burrows comprises a characterful mix of two, three and four-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes, ideally located for modern family life, just a short drive from the historic market town of Colchester.

The charming three bedroom ‘The Elmswell’ show home is now open for prospective purchasers to view. The beautiful interiors have been designed by Suna Interior Design, showcasing the high specification on offer at the development.

Externally, the homes at The Burrows have been thoughtfully crafted in keeping with the architectural charm and character of the local area, featuring traditional brick facades. Internally, a variety of house-types and layouts provide flexible open-plan living areas, maximising natural light and space.

Rebecca Hunt, Director at Suna Interior Design comments: “We designed the show home at The Burrows with a young family in mind creating a bright, comfortable, welcoming and practical space. We also took into consideration the beautiful location, with the benefits of a countryside and village setting, alongside the proximity to Colchester and other market towns.

“We used tones of blue and the very current trend for blush pinks, utilising a soft grey-pink, giving the home a lovely warm backdrop. The living room is really spacious, so we wanted to make this a focal point for the house. We incorporated a large comfortable corner sofa, ample storage and working desk space, all looking straight onto the garden.”

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “This idyllic Essex village provides a range of amenities on the doorstep, good travel connections and an escape from busy city life. With the added benefit of Help to Buy available, The Burrows is the perfect place for families to put down roots in a friendly village community. The new homes are already attracting strong interest so we urge potential buyers to get in contact as soon as possible or come and visit our beautiful new show home.”

Nestled amongst green open space and mature trees, The Burrows enjoys rural surroundings, including a central green which will be a focal point for the community. A wildflower play meadow will also provide a natural play area and an informal place for residents to relax, as well as a wetland area for seasonal planting and habitat creation.

Earls Colne is a picturesque village and is home to a selection of amenities including a village hall, convenience stores, a local family butcher, florist, pharmacy, and selection of pubs. Just a short drive away, the larger towns of Colchester and Braintree offer further amenities, as well as an abundance of leisure and entertainment facilities for all ages.

Commuters at The Burrows are well served. Direct services operate every half an hour from nearby Kelvedon and Marks Tey train stations and take as little as 51 minutes into London Liverpool Street. By car, the A131 and A120 are close by, offering access to the A12 and M11, ensuring Colchester, Chelmsford and the wider motorway network is easily accessible for drivers.

Prices at The Burrows start from £370,000 for a three bedroom home and four beds are from £400,000. The Help to Buy scheme is available on selected homes. The new marketing suite and show home is open daily between 10am – 5pm. For more information, please visit or call the sales team on 01787 747000.
