Essex Property

Essex Property


This county is known for its selection of excellent state and private schools, making it a good choice for families. Living nearby not only cuts down on the school run, saving time and fuel, but is essential where catchment areas apply.

Stephen White is head of Savills Chelmsford residential team and has more than 30 years’ experience of selling property across Essex. Steven explians: ‘The need to find a home within such catchments has a significant impact on the property market. We saw this clearly when the radius for the Chelmsford County High School for Girls and KEGS (King Edward VI Grammar School) was reduced to 12 miles a few years ago. This led to intensified demand for houses in the city and surrounding villages.

‘Little Sir Hughes in Great Baddow dates from the 17th century or earlier and is Grade II listed. The property occupies a hidden and rural location at the end of a long private road in attractive countryside between Great Baddow and West Hanningfield. Great Baddow has a good range of amenities and shops while slightly further afield is Chelmsford city with two outstanding grammar schools. Little Sir Hughes is on the market with Savills Chelmsford for £1,470,000.’
