Linden Homes’ Award Winning Tradition Meets Thaxted’s Ancient Heritage
12 Sep 2016

Award winning Linden Homes is developing plans to create a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes in Thaxted after receiving planning permission to build on a parcel of land in the Essex town.

The 47 new homes are to be built just off Wedow Road and will include a two-bedroom bungalow amongst the new homes.

Sharon Eldred is the sales and marketing director of Linden Homes Eastern:

“These homes are in a lovely location on the edge of this beautiful town. Thaxted is famous for its beautiful and historic architecture – it was mentioned in the Domesday Book. At the centre it is still a hub for commerce, with its shops and businesses – just as it was a thousand years ago.

“Linden Homes is looking forward to becoming part of the town’s impressive story – and history and has taken inspiration for the development’s architecture from existing local properties.”

As part of the construction process, Linden Homes will also be providing homes for creatures other than humans: Bat, swift and swallow boxes will be installed – as well as invertebrate and bug houses.

Once building work begins on site, the construction team will need a workforce of around 70 people, so there could also be job opportunities and possible apprenticeships available on site.

The town of Thaxted may be in a lovely, rural setting, but it is just over five and a half miles from Elsenham station, which has regular and direct trains to London Liverpool Street. The train journey into the capital takes just under an hour.

For commuters travelling further afield, Stansted Airport is just over six and half miles away.
