Construction begins on accessible homes in the natural beauty of Elsenham

Independent housebuilder Dandara has started construction at its Millers View development on Stansted Road in Elsenham. The completed development will feature 99 homes along with a public open space near the ancient protected Alsa Woods woodland.

Millers View will offer a range of two, three, four and five bedroom detached and semi-detached homes. Totalling 7.3 hectares, the development will sit around the stunning natural beauty of Alsa Woods, which will be protected by a 20-metre ‘no build zone’.

To help preserve and enhance the natural environment, the development will also feature an outdoor play area both for residents and the public to enjoy, along with the community green space. Additional features like tree-lined and landscaped streets, as well as sustainable drainage systems will mimic the development’s natural surroundings and offer a low-impact solution to the neighbouring environment.

Homes at Millers View will feature energy efficient measures such as PV solar panels, A rated boilers with built in heat recovery, waste water heat recovery, increased insulation and an electric vehicle charging points. Each home will boast a minimum EPC rating of B in keeping with energy efficiency as a major factor in a homebuyers’ decision to purchase.

Gemma Bannister, Head of Sales at Dandara Eastern, said: “This groundbreaking marks an exciting step in the development of new homes in the Essex area. Our Millers View development has been designed to cater to local first time buyers who are looking to get on the property ladder, along with older people looking to downsize thanks to the many adaptable and accessible homes that feature in the development.

“Another plus for our residents will be the stunning natural beauty that surrounds them. With the ancient woodland of Alsa Woods only a stone’s throw away, residents are never too far from nature. On top of this, London is under an hour away, thanks to fantastic transport links, so you really get the best of both worlds here in Millers View.”

Elsenham village is situated just east of the M11 motorway and lies just a few miles north of Stansted Airport, perfect for jetting off on a weekend away.
