Offering an extensive collection of 90 three, four and five bedroom houses with 10 different house types, the development is surrounded by beautifully landscaped green spaces and enjoys a fantastic location. Within a short walk of the town centre and train station, direct connections to London Liverpool Street take under 30 minutes.
