The cosmopolitan city of Chelmsford
A developing city centre, new rail connections and top university.
Chelmsford's most sought after location
The Arbour will be its very own community within Beaulieu, Chelmsford, formerly the summer residence of King Henry VIII, following his acquisition of the estate in 1517. With plentiful open spaces and parks at Beaulieu it lends itself perfectly to community activities like football, gardening and arts projects.
Whats more, Beaulieu has its very own bus service which connects the community to and from Chelmsford Railway Station and Chelmsford City Centre. The bus timetable has been established to coincide with the Chelmsford Railway timetable so that your commute from Beaulieu to London Liverpool Street is less than an hour!
A new station is on track for Beaulieu
Work-life balance couldn’t be more ideal at The Arbour, Beaulieu with Chelmsford railway station offering a regular service to London Liverpool Street (38 mins), and Ipswich in the other direction. Beaulieu is also set to benefit from its own railway station which will join the Greater Anglia mainline, making the daily commute even easier. For those taking to the roads, the A12 which bounds the Beaulieu site to the south offers direct connection to the M25 and London to the west, and Ipswich, Colchester and East Anglia to the east. And for those all important getaways Stansted airport is 20 minutes’ drive away, connecting to Europe and beyond.
