Make an easy move to waterside Wivenhoe

Easymover makes life simple for customers with a property to sell – they can reserve their new home from this sought-after selection of flats in Essex, and then sit back and relax while Taylor Wimpey finds a buyer for their current property – all in a matter of a few weeks and sometimes in as little as a fortnight!

And with five gorgeous styles of one and two-bedroom at this popular quayside development of flats in Wivenhoe available to reserve now, it’s no wonder Cook’s Shipyard is proving to be so popular with property-seekers in Essex.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “A slow-moving chain can be a very stressful barrier to owning new homes in Essex, but easymover cuts out all the hassle and enables customers to move quickly and easily.

“The stunning apartments at Cook’s Shipyard offer the ultimate in contemporary waterside living set within in an established village community. Buyers in the market for flats for sale in Essex in this sought-after location need to act quickly if they want to become part of our exciting new development.”

Set on the banks of the River Colne, homes at Cook’s Shipyard have been sympathetically designed to complement the historic surroundings of this picturesque river village location and reflect Wivenhoe’s traditional, maritime architecture, with a pleasing blend of pastel weatherboard, soft red brickwork and Trespa panelling.

Selected properties at Cook’s Shipyard are available with the easymover scheme and all the new homes are completed to a high standard specification, including fitted kitchen, with some plots enjoying access to private balconies or terraces. All properties benefit from a garage or allocated parking.

Just one of the new homes available now is the superb two-bedroom ‘Southminster’ apartment, priced from just £249,995, which is characterised by a magnificent open-plan kitchen/lounge/dining room leading to a private balcony with stunning views over the water.

Both bedrooms boast en-suite shower rooms and the property also benefits from a handy guest cloakroom off the entrance hallway.

Part of the regeneration of the former docklands at Wivenhoe, Taylor Wimpey’s Cook’s Shipyard development lies within a new community which will also comprise places of work and leisure opportunities set around the water’s edge.

The waterfront setting offers the opportunity to relax and watch pretty fishing boats and yachts pass by, while quaint narrow lanes lead to restaurants and bistros serving fresh local seafood, plus an enchanting range of independent shops, bakeries and boutiques selling fine foods, clothing, gifts and beautiful homeware.

Wivenhoe Sailing Club is close to the development, offering mooring opportunities whilst hosting races and many other events all year round, while walkers will enjoy the riverside footpaths out to the sea shore or to the vibrant and cultural town of Colchester just three miles upstream, where a wider choice of shopping, leisure facilities and schools are located.

Although the pace and quality of life at this sought-after location in Wivenhoe is restful, it’s also a very well-connected town, with Wivenhoe station just a short walk away from the development, offering direct rail services into London Liverpool Street in as little as 69 minutes.

The development also benefits from close proximity to the A12, putting the M25 within easy reach. For international travel, Stansted Airport is only 35 miles from the door.

A range of attractions can be found in the area, including the world-famous Beth Chatto Gardens, Constable’s Flatford Mill and the National Trust’s Paycocke’s at Coggeshall.
