The Maples is a development of two, three and four-bedroom new homes in the village of Cressing, Essex. On the outskirts of Braintree, it's just minutes from a huge range of amenities and attractions.

Cressing is a charming village in Essex, nestled between Braintree and Witham. Though small, the village has a few essential services including a school and train station, plus an excellent gastropub and restaurant. It's also a place of historical interest - the two medieval barns at Cressing Temple are said to be the finest Templar barns in Europe.

Despite the rural setting, living at the Maples means you can enjoy town amenities on your doorstep. Braintree, with its many shops, eateries and services is less than a 10 minute drive away, and the many brands at Braintree Village outlet are just 3 minutes away. Combined with the proximity to beautiful countryside and routes into London, this is a fantastic place to call home.
