Following the success of the first phase at St Luke’s Park in Runwell, Essex, home builder Countryside, in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has recently launched the next release of homes. The new homes, which are part of the exciting regeneration of the former Runwell Hospital, are situated just a short drive from Chelmsford, Runwell and Wickford, and within easy commuting distance of central London.
In addition to the last few remaining five-bedroom houses in the first phase, a number of three and four bedroom homes are now available to purchase at St Luke’s Park. With a wider selection of two to five bedroom houses to be released over the coming months, this new collection of homes is perfect for a variety of home buyers. Furthermore, the second phase of the development will include the release of more properties exclusively available under a popular Low Cost Home Ownership scheme.
Accessed via a beautifully landscaped entrance, St Luke’s Park is set to resemble a traditional bustling village, with timeless architecture, an attractive village green and acres of surrounding open space to explore.
With many of the buyers in the popular first phase of the development already settled into their new homes, St Luke’s Park is a flourishing community that will benefit from a proposed new primary school and a number of other on-site amenities. With the busy towns of Wickford and Rayleigh just under two and six miles away respectively, residents have everything they need on their doorstep.
Chris Bladon, Managing Director of New Homes and Communities Eastern Region at Countryside said: “The first phase of St Luke’s Park has proved to be extremely popular, largely due to its ideal location, wide range of properties styles and unique semi-rural setting. Home buyers that missed out last time and are seeking a fresh start this spring, will be pleased to discover the second phase of homes now available at St Luke’s Park.”
One of the new house designs available at St Luke’s Park is the four-bedroom Wakeford, an attractive family house laid out over three floors. On the ground floor is a light-filled open plan living, dining and kitchen area with integrated kitchen appliances and double French doors opening onto the garden. On the first floor is the impressive master bedroom with en suite, another double bedroom, the family bathroom and also the fourth bedroom, which could also be used as a study. The second floor features the final bedroom, with en suite, which would be perfect as a guest bedroom or a teenage retreat.
Each home has been meticulously designed and thoughtfully crafted, with features including cottage-style windows, beautifully detailed porch entrances and spacious driveways. A wide variety of house designs are available, all with stylish open-plan interiors finished to the highest specification. Every home is designed to maximise sustainability and minimise utility bills, with A rated appliances where possible in the kitchen, efficient central heating and low energy lighting throughout.
St Luke’s Park is ideally located approximately 6 miles from Basildon, 10 miles from Chelmsford and 12 miles from Southend On Sea, offering good shopping and leisure facilities. The development is situated in a key commuter spot with direct access to London Liverpool Street in 40 minutes from nearby Wickford and Rayleigh train stations. It also benefits from excellent road connections with the development close to both the A130 and A127 which offer links to the A12, A13 and M25.
