Almost a third of children play outside for 30 minutes or less a day and one in five don’t play outside at all on an average day*. Playing outside has a big impact on the development of a child’s motor skills and increases the chances of participation in outdoor exercise as an adult, crucial to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. Ideal for families, the new homes at Beaulieu Chelmsford, by award-winning developers Countryside and L&Q, are designed to help families make the most of the outdoors.The large homes at Beaulieu Chase offer more outdoor space than indoor space, making it easy for adults to entertain and play with their children in the fresh open air.

As well as generously sized rooms in the spacious five bedroom property named the ‘Terrazza’, residents can benefit from over 2,700ft² of private outdoor space spread over a rear garden, roof terrace and balconies. The development is also surrounded by extensive green open space including meadows, wildlife areas and sports fields. There are further areas where children can play currently in the pipe line, and all of the Terrazza properties overlook an expansive park known as The Chase.

Chris Bladon, Managing Director of Countryside’s New Homes and Communities Eastern Regioncomments: “Beaulieu is the perfect family development, it’s within close proximity of a range of existing and proposed new amenities, has great travel connections to London and beyond and is nearby to a number of well-regarded schools, colleges and Anglia Ruskin University, ticking all the boxes for many home buyers. Countryside understands that a home needs to be suitable for all those who live in it, and not just the parents. Children living at Beaulieu can make use of the variety of open spaces from meadows to parks, as well as their own gardens and terraces.”

The 2,328 ft² Terrazza is an expertly designed five bedroom detached house which comprises of an impressive kitchen, dining and family area on the ground floor. Located on the first floor are the four generously-sized bedrooms, two of which feature a shared balcony space and one opens on to a spacious decked terrace overlooking the rear garden. On the second floor is the light-filled master bedroom which leads onto an expansive decked roof terrace and balcony. The home has been designed for families to enjoy not just quality time together, but to also spend beneficial time outdoors in the fresh air.

Green open spaces play a central role at Beaulieu, helping link the development to its wider environment. Bordering The Chase, which is one of the main parkland areas, this part of Beaulieu incorporates various landscaped elements including a recreation area with feature pond, mature oak trees, areas to encourage wildlife, cyclepaths and footpaths that link with the wider development, a village green and a shady area for playing boules. These fantastic outdoor features create endless opportunities to keep the whole family active and enjoying the outdoors.

All of the homes at Beaulieu Chase are meticulously designed on the inside, with a high quality specification as standard and chic contemporary fittings and finishes. Stylish individually designed kitchens come complete with a range of energy efficient integrated appliances, bathrooms have a luxurious hotel feel with elegant white sanitaryware, while carefully considered lighting creates the perfect ambience.

It is central to the vision for Beaulieu that first class amenities are provided to help the neighbourhoods grow and flourish. Two primary schools and a secondary school are planned, the first of these - a 420-place primary school - was recently given the go ahead. Sports facilities and community, health and retail amenities are also being developed, ensuring the development has an active community life from the outset. Investment in transport connections will also be key to the success of Beaulieu – the scheme includes a site for a new railway station on the East Anglian main line, as well as a new relief road connecting Beaulieu to the A12.
