Countryside makes a compelling case for supporting first time buyers onto the property ladder through the introduction of exceptional one bedroom homes at Beaulieu in Chelmsford. In 2022, first time buyers accounted for 53% of all property sales in the UK, yet the Census data reveals that only 11.4% of all UK homes are one bedroom properties. Beaulieu aims to address this imbalance by providing a selection of affordable one bedroom homes.
Beaulieu Gate: Tudor Inspired Architecture
Countryside’s commitment to supporting first time buyers is evident in its provision of one bedroom apartments at Beaulieu Gate. These homes feature Tudor inspired architecture with a modern twist, showcasing subtle red brick detailing and beautiful bay windows reminiscent of the area’s historic New Hall School. The interiors are spacious and well planned, featuring high specification kitchens within open plan living areas. Principal bedrooms are equipped with fitted mirrored wardrobes, and the luxurious bathrooms are finished in Driftwood. Each home also comes with allocated parking. Beaulieu Gate will provide 198 properties for private sale and 74 affordable homes, all set in the verdant parkland of King Henry VIII’s former hunting grounds.
