Weston Homes announce last chance to buy a new apartment at Edinburgh Way in Harlow, Essex, with over 85% already sold

Award-winning new homes developer Weston Homes is delighted to announce significant sales success in 16 months with over 85% sold since launching Edinburgh Way, in the thriving Essex town of Harlow, as buyers continue to seek open space after the pandemic.

Edinburgh Way comprises 361 new apartments across five new residential buildings on the doorstep of rolling countryside. With health and wellbeing at the heart of the masterplan, the new neighbourhood overlooks the River Stort and open countryside with most apartments also having their own private balcony or terrace. The location provides easy access for walkers and cyclists to immerse themselves in nature. For golfers, it’s a short drive to the Manor of Groves hotel and golf course to the east with the Lea Valley in the other direction and beauty spots such as RSPB Rye Meads wetlands and nature reserve. Edinburgh Way is also ideally positioned for City commuters, ‘working-from-homers’ and those employed in the enterprise zone of Harlow, which is home to giant multi-national conglomerates such as GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and US tech firm Pitney Bowes. The development is just a two-minute walk to Harlow train station with a regular commuter service that reaches London Liverpool Street in under 30 minutes.

Due to its proximity to the capital, juxtaposed with outstanding countryside, Harlow saw an unprecedented rise in housing demand over the early part of the pandemic with sales soaring by 117% (Savills). It was the highest performing town in Essex based on increase in home sales as buyers moved out of London to take advantage of the behavioural shift of working-from-home.Each of the apartments at Edinburgh Way have been finished to Weston Homes’ signature premium specification. Purchasers have a choice of wood effect strip flooring to entrance halls, living, kitchen and dining areas and luxurious carpets to bedrooms. Designer kitchens include stainless steel electric ovens, ceramic hob and integrated fridge/ freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Buyers also get a choice of quartz stone worktops and up stands and a wide range of designer Oakwood Kitchen units.

Luxurious en-suite bathrooms include Fascino digitally controlled Smart taps, showers, baths and mirrors with LED lighting as well as heated chrome towel rails, integrated vanity storage and a choice of RAK Ceramics porcelain wall and floor tiles.Edinburgh Way is competitively priced to help buyers of all ages, from first-time buyers keen to live in a home of their own to downsizers who want to move into a friendly, ready-made community.  The starting price of £233,500 –is £37,500 below the national house price of £271,000 (according to the Office of National Statistics) – even though the new development is being built in one of the most desirable counties in the high-demand region of the southeast.

Suzanne Aplin, Group Sales & Marketing Director at Weston Homes says, “This extraordinary flurry of sales activity has happened in just 16 months and over the course of the Covid-19 crisis, reflecting and meeting the need of home buyers to purchase a new home close to nature in the English countryside, while in walking distance of amenities and culture, within a well-connected town – both in terms of transport and the internet. Edinburgh Way provides an exceptional opportunity to purchase an affordable home in a fast growing and sought-after area. The combination of sensible pricing along with the desirability and convenience of the location, has driven high sales in such a short period of time. “

Prices at Edinburgh Way start from £233,500 for a one-bedroom apartment and £318,500 for a two-bedroom apartment. The marketing suite and show home are open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm.
