New Homes in Essex for Those Thinking of Leaving London

New Homes in Essex for Those Thinking of Leaving London

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to truly appreciate the simple things, like open space, nature and a garden to call our own.

Many Londoners, finding themselves stuck working from home with no outside space, might be considering a more rural lifestyle moving forward.

Essex is a great county for those looking for more space with easy access to London.

From family homes to stylish apartments and cottages, Beresfords picks out three of the best new build developments in Essex available now…

St Osyth Priory, St Osyth

Originally home to the saint and legend Osgyth, St Osyth Priory is steep in history. Today, St Osyth Priory is an exceptional collection of heritage assets. With new properties being developed and built by City & Country, St Osyth Priory now comprises 73 new-build homes.

Set within the historic grounds, these traditionally designed homes range from pretty cottages and elegant family homes to stylish apartments, all set within an idyllic country estate populated chiefly by flora and fauna.

The Priory overlooks Brightlingsea, just a five-minute drive from St Osyth Beach, meaning you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to walks (perfect for dog owners). Plus, you can be in London within 90 minutes when travelling from Great Bentley train station.
