Hawthorn Close

Development Details

Poised right on the edge of the peaceful village of Bicknacre, surrounded by glorious Essex countryside, Hawthorn Close is a superb development of beautifully designed new homes. Cocooned within thick hedges, and with access to open green space at the rear of the site, it offers a choice of two, three and four bedroom homes. An ancient archway, all that remains of the 12th century Bicknacre Priory… a petting farm, home to pygmy goats, alpacas and wallabies… two popular local hostelries, The Brewers Arms and The White Swan, both serving excellent food… a stunning 19 acre woodland nature reserve, Thriftwood, where wildflowers and bird life flourish: the quiet village of Bicknacre is an ideal place to set down roots. Everyday essentials are available in the local convenience store and post office, with nearby White Elm Garden Centre offering fresh fruit and vegetables, a thriving family butcher and a raft of other stores. Just a couple of miles away, Danbury boasts a wider range of shops and services, while Sainsbury’s and Asda can be found at nearby South Woodham Ferrers. The area hosts a wide range of excellent restaurants and gastro-pubs – Bicknacre itself offers Chinese and Italian cuisine – and fresh seafood is the order of the day in the historic waterside market town of Maldon. Just 8 miles down the road, the vibrant city of Chelmsford is packed with opportunities for sophisticated shopping, dining and entertainment. Two cinemas, a choice of theatres, galleries, museums and arts venues – not forgetting the city’s own month-long festival – offer a range of things to see and do, while a number of sports and leisure centres provide access to all manner of activities. Football, rugby, cricket and tennis are available in Bicknacre’s neighbouring towns and villages, while golfers will be in their element, with Bunsay Downs Golf Club and the charming Warren Estate both on the doorstep. Nearby Hanningfield Waterside Park is widely considered one of the best trout fisheries in the UK. Of course, this is just one of the many nature reserves, parks and National Trust woodland and heathland available to explore in the area: Danbury Commons and Danbury Country Park are just a few miles away, with Nash Wood and Backwarden nature reserves offering alternatives to Bicknacre’s own Thriftwood and Priory Fields. RHS Hyde Hall is just 2.5 miles away, while the Stowe Maries Great War Museum and Call of the Wild Zoo offer great days out for all the family. In addition, this is wine country, with Danbury Ridge Wine Estate on the doorstep and New Hall Vineyard open for tours and tastings. On a more practical note, Bicknacre has its own pre-school and primary school, rated Good by Ofsted, with a further choice in both Danbury and South Woodham Ferrers. There are also a number of schools for older children, the closest being the Sandon School and William de Ferrers School, both Good,* while Chelmsford and the surrounding towns all offer more choice. The Memorial Village Hall hosts a wide range of activities, and annual events, such as the Country Fair and Dogshow – followed by a Barn Dance – which attracts the community
