Countryside living in Braintree
Introducing Stilemans Acre in Cressing, situated on the outskirts of Braintree
Modern living is all about achieving balance - life and work, seclusion and convenience, comfort and carbon footprint. At Stilemans Acre, Knight Developments have created homes that capture the essence of the 21st century. These 14 stylish four-bedroom properties are conveniently located on the Braintree/Cressing border with easy access to shops, amenities and transport links, as well as open countryside close at hand.
Built to Knight’s usual high standards, the houses at Stilemans Acre have also been designed with the environment in mind. They are constructed to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3, which makes them at least 25% more energy efficient than most properties built before 2006.
Set on the River Blackwater in the heart of Essex, Braintree is a vibrant town with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, a great location and a good range of amenities. Dating back 4000 years, the town still has some fine old buildings, including the magnificent former town hall and the ancient St Michael’s Church. Yet, it’s by no means stuck in the past, with a contemporary, cosmopolitan feel created by tasteful modern development in the town centre. What’s more, there’s plenty going on throughout the year, with street festivals, a carnival and weekly food and produce markets, as well as traditional celebrations over the Christmas period.
The town’s focal point is the Market Square and George Yard Shopping Centre, which features a range of famous-name stores and a choice of restaurants and cafes. If you’re looking for designer bargains, there’s the Freeport Outlet Shopping Village, just out of town on the A120. Close by is the Freeport Leisure Complex, which has a multi-screen cinema, as well as the Namco Funscape, which offers fun activities for all the family, including bowling, computer games, pool, kids’ parties and karaoke. There are great restaurants here too.
Braintree’s location also adds to its attraction. Within easy reach are the County Town of Chelmsford or historic Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town, where you’ll find a much larger selection of shops, bars, restaurants, theatres and entertainment.
Trains run regularly from Braintree to central London . With Stansted Airport just down the road, it’s easy to jet off to a European city or sunnier climes without the hassle of a long journey before you fly.
