Historic Rochford in Essex lies along the banks of the River Roch, just a few miles to the north of the popular seaside haunt of Southend. In the past five years detached house prices in the town have soared by almost 30%. The proximity to London’s Southend Airport is an influencing factor on Rochford’s popularity as the airport makes a significant contribution to the local and regional economy, thanks to substantial multi-million pound investment that will serve two million passengers by 2020.
Ashberry Homes is delighted to be launching two new show homes at its unique development, Elizabeth Gardens in Rochford on April 1st. A luxurious four bedroom semi detached house known as the Lancaster housestyle and the Oatlands three bed detached are both fabulous examples of the stunning collection of two, three, four, and five-bedroom homes, which will cater to a wide range of potential homeowners.
Buyers at Elizabeth Gardens can expect an exceptional specification, the homes are built in timeless architectural style, complemented by generous open green spaces as they boast a semi-rural setting, located on the fringe of the picturesque Essex countryside. The perfectly crafted homes have spacious rooms, stylish fittings and have been designed to cater for modern day living.
Gemma Bannister from Ashberry Homes comments: “The new show home at Elizabeth Gardens looks to capture the aspirations of our prospective buyers. The choice of homes will appeal from first time buyers through to larger families who are looking for stylish high specification houses. These homes have been designed with brilliant layouts which are versatile and will work well for busy lives with generous space for entertaining in comfort.”
The homes are located half a mile from the bustling town centre of Rochford and are just five miles from the coastal resort of Southend-on-Sea; this location offers residents the best of both worlds. Miles of beautiful Essex countryside are on the doorstep waiting to be explored; flint churches, historic country houses, ancient woodland and wildflower meadows are in abundance here. Or for a change of scenery head to the seaside for days of family fun on Southend’s beaches and the longest pleasure pier in the world.
