Welcome to Rosewood, an inspiring new development of traditionally designed 1 & 2 bedroom apartments and 2, 3 & 4 bedroom houses on the edge of Colchester.

Located close to open countryside, as well as the picturesque villages of Dedham and Flatford, the scale and setting of this grand development will appeal to a variety of purchasers. The homes will enjoy an established feel with areas of open landscaped spaces, tree lined boulevards and a pond so that you can grow within a tranquil setting.

Commuters will be well served with easy access to the A12, as well as train links to London Liverpool Street in as little as 53 minutes. There are also several schools close by making the development perfect for families, whilst the low maintenance aspects of the new homes will also appeal to those looking to downsize.

Like all Crest Nicholson developments, sustainability and energy efficiency are key, so you can be sure of lower heating and water costs without compromising on the design and functionality of the home.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

The town centre has leisure attractions for everyone, including a variety of restaurants, bars and a cinema. It is also something of a creative and cultural hub, with a number of arts venues such as the Mercury Theatre and the new Firstsite arts centre, which has an innovative exhibition programme of contemporary art. Fitness facilities in town include Leisure World, which has a swimming pool, racquet sport facilities, fitness classes and a gym. There are also Bannatynes and LA Fitness gyms.

The northern side of Colchester has always been sought after with good schooling and employment. Recently the area has been further enhanced with a new link to the A12, making commuting easy, as well as a new football stadium, and improvements to healthcare facilities and more amenities planned. Another fantastic local resource is High Woods Country Park, where you can explore woodlands, hayfields and wildflower meadows within minutes of your front door.

When you feel like venturing further afield, the neighbouring villages of Boxted, Nayland and Dedham are within an easy drive. Dedham, in the heart of 'Constable Country', has stunning scenery, as well as welcoming pubs and restaurants, such as the family-run Country House Hotel, award-winning restaurant Le Talbooth and The Sun Inn, which has featured in the Michelin Guide.

Local Shopping

The location is good for other practical needs. Rosewood is just under a mile away from Colchester General Hospital and the nearest supermarkets, Tesco and Waitrose are just over one and three miles away respectively.

Colchester's Roman roots mean it is generally regarded as the oldest town in Britain, and its Norman castle is still largely intact. However, Colchester flourishes in the 21st century as a prosperous centre with excellent shopping facilities on the High Street, including the award-winning Williams & Griffin and a Fenwick Store, hosting brands such as Hobbs and Kurt Geiger. There is also the Lion Walk shopping centre, where there are brands such as Marks & Spencer, Apple and Boots.


There is a good range of schools in the area, including Myland Primary School which achieved a 'Good' rating at its last OFSTED inspection. Colchester Royal Grammar School and Colchester County High School for Girls - both rated 'Outstanding' - which are under 4 miles away.

Transport Links

For work, rest and play, Rosewood is ideally placed. Offering easy access to all of Colchester's fantastic local amenities by car, bus, bicycle or on foot. Colchester town centre and Rosewood itself can be easily accessed from the A12 via the new northern approach road which links with the A134.

If you commute to London, you'll go from Colchester station, just over a mile away, with trains to London Liverpool Street taking as little as 47 minutes.

Local business centres are also close. Severalls Industrial Park and Colchester Business Park can both be reached in about five minutes by car.

The development is also well served by the local buses, with services to the town centre running approximately every 20 minutes. And if you have further to go, the A120 is just 10 miles from Rosewood, providing easy access to Stansted Airport and the M11 in approximately 50 minutes. The M25 can be accessed at junction 11 of the A12, joining at junction 28 for travel north and south.
