Time to move down the property ladder?

22 January 2015

Are you an empty nester looking to downsize from the family house or do you just want to free up some cash by moving to a smaller home?

As recent stamp duty reform can save buyers literally thousands of pounds (actual savings are shown on every property on our website!) and various government initiatives help people to buy their first and second homes, downsizers could also be inspired to make a move of their own. And there’s certainly a lot to choose from with one of these great properties on the market with Beresfords.

Orchard Cottage is a picturesque three bedroom semi-detached cottage with exposed beams and a period fireplace which is believed to date back to 1690. The property is set in the river fronted town of Wivenhoe, around three miles south east of Colchester, where the owners will be able to enjoy all that the two towns have to offer. The contemporary orangery is the perfect position to relax with fabulous views of the garden. It’s on the market for £375,000 through our Colchester team, who can be reached on 01206 808791. Located in the heart of the thriving market town of Great Dunmow is this two bedroom first floor apartment.  The property has been finished to a very high standard, so is ready to move into and benefits from a fully fitted kitchen with appliances, bathroom with shower and two double bedrooms. Being positioned just off Dunmow High Street means there are a range amenities on your doorstep, but should you need the car, there is an allocated parking space included in the price, which is £168,000.  For more information call 01371 876868 to speak to the team in the Great Dunmow office.
Convenient and perfectly formed, this recently refurbished two bedroom cottage is on the market with a guide price of £320,000. The property has off road parking and is perfectly placed just 0.3 miles from Brentwood’s mainline railway station with its fast links to London Liverpool Street perfect if you fancy a trip to the city. If you are keen to take a look inside for yourself please call our Brentwood team on 01277 888624. And finally, if you’re looking to escape to the country for a little peace and quiet then this one bedroom studio was recently converted and is now available to rent for £575pcm. Though the property enjoys a quiet rural location, situated by fields and a paddock, Chelmsford’s bustling town centre is only ten minutes away. Want to find out more about the studio? Call the lettings agents in our Maldon branch on 01621 851666 who will be happy to give you the lowdown.
