At Linden Homes, we recognise why so many people love this part of the world. That’s why our range of superb new homes for sale throughout Essex are built in carefully chosen locations.
There is much more to Essex than traditional seaside fun and the Londoner's escape. Epping Forest for example boasts the largest public open space in the London area, at almost 6,000 acres. It stretches 12 miles from Manor Park in East London to just north of Epping. The county is incredibly diverse with some of the quaintest and most picturesque villages in the UK and much of the coastline is protected as Nature Reserves. Add to this outstanding links to the capital, top notch shopping and an abundance of schools and Essex is a very appealing place to buy a new home.
Air, rail and road links are well catered for in Essex. Stansted Airport serves destinations in Europe as well as Asia; access into London by rail generally takes less than an hour and the M11 and M25 both pass through the county.
Lakeside Shopping Centre is one of the biggest shopping centres in the UK. It possesses over 250 shops, cafes and restaurants including a giant M&S, House of Fraser, Primark, Topshop and Debenhams. Epping village offers a traditional village shopping experience and Buckhurst Hill is a label lover's heaven.
There are hundreds of junior and primary schools in Essex, 90 state secondary schools and a handful of grammar and private schools. The University of Essex focuses on social subjects and is home to the Institute for Social and Economic Research.
