Persimmon Homes


Looking for a new home in Essex?

Essex has a great big TV persona. A home county with a show-stopping style of its own, yet behind the scenes there are plenty of other stars.

Choosing a location for a new home in this southeast county is a great part for you to play. You can rub shoulders with Greater London, or head north and east to discover a very different scene. Bustling urban Essex wears its heart on its sleeve, while rural Essex shows more reserve with unspoilt villages and landscapes.  Work and play make the different characters of this county fit together. The Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty north of Colchester, is on the border with Suffolk. You can stroll in the peaceful scenery that Constable’s paintings made famous, or you can head to the coast where seaports and seaside resorts each have their lively place. From Saffron Waldon’s medieval houses to Southend-on-Sea’s beach huts, this county is an amazing double-act.

Excellent transport links are a given. The M11, M25 and A12 are the main routes and the rail network makes train travel quick and easy.
