Milan, Munich, Barcelona, Berlin, the Alps and Amsterdam are just a handful of the European destinations purchasers at Eclipse, a new development by Countryside Properties in Braintree, Essex, are able to reach with remarkable ease.
Eclipse comprises a collection of 62 homes ranging from two bedroom apartments to two and three bedroom houses. Of the homes currently available, internal floor areas range from 684 sq ft to 1,126 sq ft.
Eclipse benefits from first class road, rail and air connections with Stansted Airport a mere 12 miles away via the new A120. As one of Europe’s fastest growing airports, Stansted currently sees 18.7million passengers pass though its terminal every year travelling to 114 destinations.
According to the latest figures from Land Registry average house prices in Braintree currently stand at £204,631*. Therefore with prices at Eclipse starting at a mere £145,000 for apartments and £177,500 for houses, significant savings can be made.
Chris Crook, managing director of Countryside Properties commented: “Due to both its location and affordability, Eclipse has made Europe even more accessible to its residents. The superb levels of transport connections in and around Braintree mean residents can find themselves in the enviable position of being able to stroll along the streets of Milan within just hours of locking the front door at Eclipse.”
Complementing the range of travel and lifestyle options available to purchasers at Eclipse, the homes have been designed with contemporary interiors to ensure relaxation continues at home as well as on holiday.
Eclipse offers three different designs of homes and four apartment options, with all the properties benefiting from open plan kitchens with either an adjoining dining or living/dining area. A selection of the homes and apartments also benefit from en suite facilities.
Individually designed kitchens come complete with integrated appliances including stainless steel oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer and within the houses a dishwasher. All kitchens as well as en suites benefit from recessed halogen downlighters.
Bathrooms, en suites and cloakrooms feature sleek, modern sanitaryware by Porcelanosa and Kaldewei, and brassware by Hansgrohe.
Braintree station is a mile from Eclipse, and London Liverpool Street can be reached in just over an hour. The new A102 provides fast and efficient access to Stansted Airport, with London’s West End easily reached via the M11 and M25.
