2018 was Stansted Airport’s busiest year to date, seeing over 28 million passengers and with the pending airport expansion, the area is seeing significant investment. Situated in stunning Essex countryside, the location has a lot to offer its communities. The area around the airport offers direct train travel into London Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street in 45 minutes and to Cambridge in a little over half an hour, making it perfect for those commuting or working nearby.


The area’s potential as one of London’s emerging commuter neighbourhoods is not going unnoticed, with award-winning housebuilder, Crest Nicholson, currently offering a number of sought-after developments near Stansted. Elms Farm and Elsenham Vale are both located in the heart of the countryside, while benefitting from excellent connections.  


Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, yet within easy reach of London, Crest Nicholson’s Elms Farm development comprises a charming collection of two and three-bedroom cottages and four and five-bedroom family homes. The meticulously crafted contemporary homes offer the tranquillity of the Essex countryside with city connections. On the site of a former dairy farm, the properties have been designed to be in-keeping with the character and history of the land and to fit seamlessly with the natural landscape.
