Affordable Homes

Taylor Wimpey has Something for Everyone in Colchester!


Homebuyers in Colchester looking to take their first step on the property ladder are spoilt for choice, thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s exquisite range of properties across the town

The leading housebuilder currently has a stunning selection of stylish two and three bedroom apartments available to reserve at its prestigious Arena Place development, located off Napier Road.

Their superb location, combined with a high-quality finish, makes these beautiful new apartments ideal first time purchases for those looking for contemporary living close to Colchester’s eclectic mix of restaurants and bars.

For buyers looking for a well-connected home a little further from the town centre, Taylor Wimpey will also soon be launching two brand new developments – Parva Place, located off Warren Lane in Stanway and Whitmore Park at Kingswood Heath, located on the site of the former Severalls Hospital.

What’s more, Taylor Wimpey is offering the government-backed Help to Buy scheme at all three developments, enabling eligible purchasers to secure a government loan for up to 20% of their new home’s full price, so they only need a 75% loan-to-value mortgage and a 5% deposit.

Michael O’Leary, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, said, “First time buyers are moving away from London to areas like Colchester as they can get so much more for their money here, yet there are still superb commuter links into the City and elsewhere.

“Arena Place has proved incredibly popular with homebuyers, thanks to its desirable location and stunning mix of new and refurbished homes.

“Our new Parva Place and Whitmore Park developments will offer a range of new properties, ideal for first time buyers, and thanks to Help to Buy, moving to one of these wonderful new homes could be even more affordable than purchasers had previously thought. However, we don’t expect these homes to be around for very long, so I would urge property-seekers to register their interest online, or visit us at Arena Place to avoid missing out!”

Apartments at Arena Place are priced from £164,995 and have each been finished to a high standard specification, including a fully fitted kitchen and half-height tiling in the bathrooms, with some of the properties offering en suites. The refurbished properties also boast stunning features such as vaulted ceilings, exposed internal brickwork and original windows.

Based on the site of the former Colchester Garrison, the new homes at Arena Place have been thoughtfully designed and restored, to complement their historic setting.

Whitmore Park at Kingswood Heath has also sensitively retained a number of the original buildings – including a water tower at the site – to faithfully mark the footprint of the hospital. The development offers a beautiful collection of high-quality homes, surrounded by beautiful Essex countryside, while the new properties coming soon to Parva Place will benefit from a peaceful, village setting, close to a host of local amenities.

The developments are well located for commuters, with the A12 providing links to Ipswich, Chelmsford and London. Colchester Town railway station is a short walk from Arena Place and less than four miles from Parva Place, while Colchester railway station is less than two miles from Whitmore Park. Both stations offer direct and regular services into London Liverpool Street.

To be among the lucky first time buyers choosing a new home at Arena Place, homehunters can visit the Sales and Marketing Suite, located off Napier Road, Colchester, Essex CO2 7GA, open Thursday to Monday from 10am until 5.30pm, or call the sales team on 01206 581 096.

Alternatively, prospective purchasers can register their interest in the new homes coming soon to Parva Place or Whitmore Park at
