East England

Discover what living in one of our new homes in the East of England is like. Use our guide to the key cities, famous landmarks, special landscapes and things to do as your starting point.

Our new homes in the East of England offer you easy access to the capital, to the region’s largest cities and towns, and to the good life on the edge of a village.

This region puts on a great double-act. In the south it jostles up close and personal with Greater London, whilst in the north it becomes more and more rural, until its sandy beaches touch the North Sea. These are the East of England’s credentials, offering new homeowners a deep sense of history, a long coastline, wide open countryside and a strong link with London.
