L&Q is delighted to announce a bespoke collection of new homes launching in Beaulieu, Chelmsford in 2020. The Beaulieu Park development, just north-east of the city centre, is a new community emerging on the 604-acre site which was once owned by King Henry VIII, and his summer residence, Beaulieu Palace. The whole site is welcoming an abundance of homes, plus shops, offices and an all-through school. The Arbour – Beaulieu will provide 255 homes which will be available exclusively through shared ownership.

The Arbour will draw upon the rich heritage of local village architecture and more formal buildings, with the designs being contemporary, filled with light and feature generous internal and external spaces – providing the perfect space for modern living. These diverse range of home designs will suit a wide range of different needs and lifestyles, creating a contemporary community.

Chelmsford is great for families, boasting excellent schools, first-rate sports facilities and acres of Essex countryside on the doorstep including Hylands Park and the many bridleways situated on the Beaulieu development. Work-life balance couldn’t be more ideal at The Arbour – Beaulieu with Chelmsford railway station offering a regular service to London Liverpool Street (38 mins), and Ipswich in the other direction. Beaulieu is also set to benefit from its own railway station which will join the Greater Anglia mainline, making the daily commute even easier. For those taking to the roads, the A12 which bounds the Beaulieu site to the south offers direct connection to the M25 and London to the west, and Ipswich, Colchester and East Anglia to the east. For those all important getaways Stansted airport is 20 minutes’ drive away, connecting to Europe and beyond.

For anything more than your local amenities, Chelmsford City Centre offers a huge variety of high street retailers, independent stores and ample entertainment opportunities. The creation of Chelmsford’s Bond Street, comprising a John Lewis, The White Company and various other high end shops and restaurants was a necessary addition to Chelmsford’s City Centre which has boosted the area’s status as a retail and residential hotspot, putting the city on the property market map.
