Lakeside living

Set on the sparkling waters of the lakes but with all the amenities and services you might need at your doorstep, Wimbush Waters perfectly balances the great outdoors with great connections. Just three miles from your new home on the water, Chelmsford is a vibrant city with a long history, including its 11th-century cathedral and the spectacular neo-classical elegance of Hylands House. The city is a mere 32 minutes from central London, but with exceptional restaurants like the New London Restaurant, Galvin Green Man and The Windmill at Chatham Green, as well as the Channels Brasserie offers a slice of fine dining closer to home. Other local diversions include Chelmsford Racecourse, a bustling high street and miles of open countryside, with Channels Park on your doorstep.

Transport links are excellent too, with Chelmsford’s mainline station just three miles from your door providing a fast and direct commute to the capital in under 35 minutes. A further station, Chelmsford North, is due for completion in 2025 and is within walking distance.

For schooling, local educational establishments are highly regarded and include King Edward VI Grammar School and Chelmsford County High School for Girls. At university level, Anglia Ruskin attracts students from all over the world for its high-quality teaching and wide choice of courses.
