Construction Work Nearing Completion At Great Yeldham Development
02 Sep 2021

Construction is coming to an end at a new housing development in Great Yeldham, where there are now just two homes still available to buy.

Linden Homes, which is part of the Vistry Group, is building a total of 60 homes at Strawberry Fields on the former Hunnable Industrial Estate in the village.

The developer, which started work on the 5.4-acre site in June 2019 is delivering a mix of one to five-bedroom properties, with 36 for private sale and 24 for affordable rent or shared ownership.

The final homes are due to be completed this winter.

Jason Colmer, sales and marketing director of Linden Homes Eastern, said: “Strawberry Fields has proved to be an extremely popular development since the day it was launched. Homebuyers are attracted by the opportunity to enjoy the good life in a beautiful Essex village.

“Braintree District Council gave us planning permission and afforded us the chance to transform an eyesore of a former industrial estate into an award-winning development providing much-needed housing for the area.”

Strawberry Fields was named Development of the Year for the South region in the 51 to 100 units category at the 2020 Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards. The annual awards are held by the building warranty provider to recognise the best UK developments covered by its schemes.

Jason said: “We are very proud to have received this prestigious national award for our work at Strawberry Fields which is fast becoming a thriving little community in its own right. The award recognised the high quality of the homes and the attention to detail demonstrated by our dedicated site team.

“With just two homes still available, this represents the last chance for buyers to secure a high-quality home on an award-winning development in this desirable village location.”

The two homes currently available are all five-bedroom detached Fletcher house types.

The three-storey property features a spacious kitchen and dining area which has doors leading out to the back garden. The first floor comprises the main bedroom with an en suite and dressing room, two other bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two further bedrooms and a shower room are located on the second floor.
