Strong early interest in Saxon Meadow

Saxon Meadow has seen a steady stream of interested househunters and reservations are already in double figures, with 3 buyers snapping up their chosen plot during the launch event.

Asked if Hopkins Homes were pleased with the response, a spokesman for Hopkins said: "Absolutely, it has been very positively received with the mix of sizes and range of property styles appealing to a broad spectrum of buyers at whatever stage they are at; from first time buyers, those wanting more space as their families grow or are now looking to downsize - and a lot of interest is being shown in the bungalows."

This latest development will provide 97 homes - with 23 different house styles - in this well served village.

Capel St Mary has a primary school and a range of shops and other amenities, including churches and a village hall and playing field. And it is a popular location for commuters, with Colchester less than 13 miles away and Ipswich just over six miles and yet surrounded by glorious countryside.

It is seven miles to Manningtree from trains to London Liverpool Street in about an hour, and the A12 is a little over half a mile away.

Saxon Meadow offers a thoughtfully designed ranage of properties consisting of 2 bedroom cottages and coach houses, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom bungalows and 3, 4 and 5 bedroom traditional family homes.

Many of the house types have been given familiar names with local connections. There is the Wolsey and the Gainsborough, The Giles, the Hambling and the Robson just to name a few.

The showhome, which is the Wolsey, is a substantial five bedroom home consisting of a spacious ground floor which offers a study, a fully fitted kitchen with a range cooker, a breakfast/dining area with family snug, separate utility and cloakroom, a large living room with fireplace and woodburner and double doors leading out to the landscaped and fully enclosed rear garden. The first floor provides 5 bedrooms, two with ensuite shower rooms, three providing built-in wardrobes and there is also a main bathroom featuring a double shower enclosure.

The beautifully furnished showhome and marketing suite are open Thursday through to Monday, 10am - 5pm.
