Celebrating its busiest year ever, Stanstead Airport welcomed over 28 million passengers in 2018, positioning itself as the fastest growing UK airport[i]. For home hunters seeking an ideal base for frequent flying, Notting Hill Genesis’ new development in the vibrant Essex city of Chelmsford, is well located to reach Stanstead Airport in just 30 minutes. Featuring a contemporary selection of one and two-bedroom apartments available to buy with Shared Ownership, purchasers who enjoy jetting off with ease could get on the property ladder from as little as £5,938 for a one-bedroom apartment.*
Shared Ownership offers purchasers at City Park West the opportunity to buy a share of a home, between 25% and 75% of its full market value, while paying a subsidised rent on the remaining share. Provided they can afford to, purchasers can increase their share at any time, all the way up to 100% and outright ownership.
Enjoying a prime position in the heart of Chelmsford town centre, purchasers at City Park West can choose from a wealth of local amenities on their doorstep. Located just a five-minute walk away, adjacent to the development, is Chelmsford railway station and coach station. Purchasers can pick up a daily coach service which operates 24-hours-a-day, travelling direct to Stanstead Airport terminal. For those who prefer to travel by car, London Stanstead is 30-minutes away via the A120. For residents wanting to connect to the capital, Chelmsford station operates regular train services reaching Liverpool Street in 35 minutes, and once operational the new Crossrail route can be accessed from Shenfield station, which is just over 20 minutes’ journey from Chelmsford.
Jim Munson, Head of Marketing at Notting Hill Genesis, comments: “Our apartments at City Park West are an excellent option for purchasers who regularly travel abroad for business or pleasure, or who work in industries which service and supply Stanstead airport at all hours. All of the apartments offer spacious, secure, low maintenance living, and a 24-hour onsite concierge service* will ensure any deliveries that arrive whilst they are away will be safely taken care of. Should residents find themselves flying back home at unsociable hours, underground parking makes that door-to-door journey home that little bit easier. The development also enjoys an excellent central location where buyers are within walking distance of everything Chelmsford has to offer when they do find themselves back at home.”
