Crest Nicholson recently unveiled their fantastic collection of new homes, Lightermans Place, in Maldon, Essex. Since launching at the start of 2016, the development has recorded a 100% customer satisfaction rate with buyers, and with interest rates at an all-time low, there has never been a better time to invest in a property on this stunning development.


Set against the backdrop of sky, saltmarsh, and sea, this charming corner of Essex is an ideal place for those looking to trade the hustle and bustle of London for a more tranquil, rural setting. With family homes available on Help to Buy, this development is a lifetime investment.


Under the Help to Buy scheme, prospective buyers only need a deposit of 5% of the property’s value, and the government will subsequently provide a guarantee for a further 15%. While open to buyers of all ages, the scheme is a fantastic way for young people and first time buyers to get their first foot on the property ladder.  


Homes at Lightermans Place come with a range of innovative features designed to enhance energy efficiency and comfort. Double glazed windows are fitted throughout each home in order to maximise natural light whilst keeping the property thermally efficient.
