Why Live In Essex

Why Live In Essex

Home Counties

Traditionally, people relocate to Essex for three main reasons; good communication links, outstanding natural beauty and excellent schooling.

Essex is blessed with miles of open undulating hills and glorious countryside combined with a superb transportation infrastructure including rail, road, air and sea ports. There is a wide selection of excellent state, private schools and colleges and some of the grammar schools in Essex are amongst the finest in the country.

For those that need quick and easy access into London, it has a very fast commute by train to all parts of the capital.

The prices of properties in Essex are considered to be slightly less expensive when compared to other home-county regions and you certainly do get value for money or put another way ‘more bricks per pound’!

An Essex property search would include a vast cross section of styles of properties to choose from in the towns and villages ranging from the quintessential thatched cottages, medieval timber framed dwellings, classic townhouses and modern estate properties to enormous mansions with electronic entrance gates.  

Popular areas on the outskirts of London to include in your Essex property search include Epping, Shenfield and Ingatestone. The prettiest villages include Finchingfield, Gestingthorpe, Castle Hedingham, Wickham St Paul, Colne Engaine, Great Bentley, Bures, Good Easter, High Easter, and Thaxted.
