Residents start moving into new 140-home development in Hatfield Peverel

The first residents at Bellway’s Priory Grange development in Hatfield Peverel have moved into their new homes.

Buyers have started occupying some of the first properties which have been completed at the site as construction work continues apace.

Located off Stone Path Drive, the development will consist of 140 new homes, including 56 properties allocated as affordable housing for local people through shared ownership and low-cost renting.

The other 84 homes at Priory Grange are being built for private buyers. The homes at Priory Grange include a mix of detached and semi-detached houses ranging from two to five bedrooms in size. Each property comes with its own garden and garage or designated parking space.

Jenny Walker, Sales Director at Bellway Essex, said: “Priory Grange is proving very popular with various types of buyers from growing families to downsizers and first-time buyers. Due to the broad mix of homes we are providing here, the development offers suitable options for house-hunters with different needs and budgets.

“The development is particularly attractive to commuters as it close to the A12 for journeys to London, Colchester and Ipswich, and less than a mile from Hatfield Peverel railway station.

“There is plenty of activity at the site right now following the arrival of our first residents and we are looking forward to welcoming more buyers into their completed homes over the coming weeks and seeing a new community begin to form.

“Our sales team here has recorded a consistently high level of enquiries and reservations since the first properties went onto the market in April, demonstrating the strong demand for new homes in Hatfield Peverel.”

This is one of two developments that Bellway is currently building in the village. The housebuilder is also delivering 145 homes at its Hatfield Grove site off Station Road.

A selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes are currently available at Priory Grange, with prices starting from £368,995.
