A perfect new home just outside England’s oldest town, historic Colchester.
Oakwood Meadows is a lovely collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes in the village of Stanway, on the western edges of Colchester. You’ll have this historic city on one side and the Essex countryside on the other.
The A12 London Road is a direct link to Greater London and the M25 via Chelmsford, and you can join it within minutes. It’s been a key route since Roman times and is still going strong today. This location also puts you in good stead for Suffolk with the A12 continuing on to Ipswich. Living close to Colchester adds culture, shopping, entertainment and leisure to the list of opportunities that you and your family will have on your doorstep. There’s a castle and the remains of a Roman Theatre, there’s an Arts Centre and a university, there are leisure centres and shopping centres, riverside walks and parks. This is a great place to be.
