Award-winning house builder Crest Nicholson is delighted to announce the opening of two brand new show homes at its first ever development in Maldon, Lighterman’s Place.

Lighterman’s Place is located on Park Drive, within walking distance of the popular Promenade Park and the local high street. The new development will incorporate a traditional collection of apartments, two and three bedroom cottages and four bedroom family homes.

The two show homes officially opened on Saturday 9th January, and comprise one three bedroom property (The Hartley) and one four bedroom property (The Copthorne). Visitors are invited to take a look around the two stunning family homes, which are finished to the highest standard with top of the range fixtures and fittings.  

The development is perfectly placed for commuters with excellent links to the A12 and A414, providing direct access to Chelmsford, Witham and Hatfield Peverel. For those travelling by train, direct trains depart from Hatfield Perevel arriving in London Liverpool Street in under 45 minutes.

Maldon provides picturesque views of the Blackwater Estuary and the town maintains much of its maritime heritage, with many of the traditional buildings still remaining.

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “Lighterman’s Place is a charming development which presents the unique combination of modern, contemporary living within easy reach of open countryside, plus all the amenities of a traditional market town.”

“We’ve already seen strong demand for the properties from local residents following the launch last weekend, and anticipate further interest for these properties in the coming months.”

Crest Nicholson is now reserving properties on Lighterman’s Place.  The Crest Nicholson marketing suite and show home are open daily from 10am to 5pm, to schedule an appointment, please call 01621 731024 or visit
