Living by the sea exerts an air of magic, a determining factor of Leigh-on-Sea’s recent ‘happiest place to live’ title. As the Essex town enjoys this accolade, awarded by Right Move[i], potential buyers have been drawn to nearby Southend-on-Sea, where Bellway Essex’s Ekco Park has just two apartments remaining. Ideal for first-time buyers, professionals and investors, the property is available with Help to Buy and offers the final opportunity to join this thriving community.
Amongst a collection of one, two and three-bedroom homes, The Eastwood and the Gunners are stylish one and two-bedroom apartments offering an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area. With sleek features including an impressive kitchen, a contemporary bathroom featuring Roca sanitary ware and a spacious wraparound balcony, this unique apartment is ideal for easy and relaxed lifestyles.
Paul Timson, Sales Manager from Bellway Essex comments: “It’s no wonder that the development has been favoured locally. These contemporary, commutable homes boast a wonderfully tempting coastal backdrop and tick so many boxes. The allure of Southend-on-Sea coupled with the exciting neighbourhood feel at Ekco Park have proved to be a successful combination.”
Ekco Park is well located to flourish near the beautiful coastline, just a ten-minute drive from some coveted sandy beaches and home to the world’s longest leisure pier. For a fun day out, the Adventure Island Family Fun Park, a Sea Life Adventure Aquarium and the Kursaal bowling alley and amusement arcade are all just a short distance away. Just a few minutes from the development is Priory Park, with forty-five acres of beautiful gardens, bowling greens, recreation areas and a children’s playground.
A selection of convenience stores and supermarkets are in the vicinity of the development, catering for everyday essentials. Southend High Street, a ten-minute drive, hosts a selection of popular retailers and independent boutiques, along with a weekly market and a bi-weekly farmers’ market. Renowned for its fish and chips, seafood and ice cream, Southend also offers many international cuisines, has wine bars and traditional pubs.
Just an eight-minute drive from Southend University Hospital and seven minutes from Southend Airport, the development is conveniently located. For train commuters, Prittlewell Station is just a ten-minute walk away from Ekco Park, with direct trains to London departing frequently and taking less than an hour.
