Following its succession to city status back in 2012 average house prices in this former Essex county town have risen sharply. This has been aided by some major commercial and residential redevelopment in the city centre and surrounding areas. New developments include a pedestrianised zone in the form of Bond Street, first class leisure and recreational facilities and an eclectic mix of cosmopolitan restaurants and bars.
With easy access to London Liverpool Street (under 30 minutes by rail), Chelmsford is a popular choice for commuters. Disillusioned with the forever inflated London property market, families and young professionals are relocating to young cities with more financial wiggle room in terms of property. Chelmsford offers plenty of staying power with many families choosing to stay and move up the local property ladder rather than move back to London.
It’s not all about the commute either. Frequently credited as being the ‘birthplace of radio’ following Guglielmo Marconi’s opening of the world’s first radio factory in 1899, Chelmsford is a city which continues to innovate and inspire. Nowadays the city is providing ample space for several leading technology companies. One such company is e2v which offers a variety of employment opportunities, graduate schemes and apprenticeships.
Whether you are living in the trendy city centre, or in the picturesque local villages, surrounded by stunning river estuaries there are no shortage of idyllic locations to live in Chelmsford.
From Victorian cottages to plush new apartment developments, there are plenty of properties on the market in Chelmsford. Although the average house price in Chelmsford is on the rise, currently at £391,000, the city still offers greater affordability than most suburbs of the capital.
Construction has started on the creation of up to 3,600 new homes at Beaulieu Park, a joint development project located North East of the city centre. In addition to a range of modern detached properties and luxury apartments, this project will also pave the way for a new business park and school. A new station at Boreham will also be created to join up with the direct line to London Liverpool Street.
One of Chelmsford’s main draws is its excellent reputation for schools. This includes some well thought of Grammar Schools (King Edward VI and Chelmsford County High School) as well as some high performing non-selectives (Chelmer Valley High School and Great Baddow High School). There are also five private schools in and around the city, catering for ages from three to 11.
The majority of Chelmsford’s state primary schools were judged to be ‘good’ by the Government’s education watchdog, Ofsted. During the latest round of inspections, Moulsham Infants, The Tyrrells, Perryfield Juniors and Galleywood all performed highly.
Chelmsford stands out for having an extensive events programme. This includes RiZE Festival, a brand-new festival replacing the popular V Festival series, which is held at Hylands Park, a 232-hectare park located south-west of the city. Expect to hear the latest sounds in Pop, R&B and rock music.
For sporting enthusiasts, the city does not disappoint either. Chelmsford City Race course provides a wonderful setting to have a flutter on the races, enjoy a champagne-toasted meal with family or friends or simply enjoy more in the field of quality live music. Cricket fans can also rejoice at the Essex Country Cricket club, where they can catch all the latest action, from the fast-paced Natwest T20 Blast to the LV= County Championships.
Of course, Chelmsford also benefits from its prime, central location right at the heart of Essex, which provides easy access to the stunning countryside. Why not enjoy a long Sunday stroll along the pleasant river estuaries or take a bike out and explore the surrounding rolling hills of the countryside via one of the city’s many designated cycle paths. With no shortage of outdoor venues, protected public parks and other stunning rural locations, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the great outdoors.
