Contemporary waterside living in the heart of Brightlingsea Harbour

04 Mar 20

We are delighted to unveil the latest, highly anticipated phase of the exclusive Harbourside development, a collection of five truly exceptional houses in an outstanding location from the award-winning Purelake Group.

Designed to maximise natural coastal light, these spacious three-storey townhouses have all the benefits of waterside living combined with cutting edge design featuring the finest internal fittings and finishes throughout.  Each home has been constructed with incredible attention to detail, using high-end materials and outstanding levels of craftsmanship to ensure the perfect combination of style, luxury and practicality.  Elegant kitchens are complemented by contemporary, matt finish Shaker-style units, modern worktops, splashbacks and integrated Indesit appliances.


Family bathrooms are finished to a similarly high specification including luxury tiling, ultra-modern chrome accessories and designer sanitaryware by Vitra. Master bedrooms and the second bedrooms in plots 1, 2, 3 and 5 come with stylish en-suites featuring minimalist, low profile shower trays with glass screens, heated towel radiators and high-end accessories and fittings.

Each of the homes has its own private terrace to the rear and selected properties also feature well-positioned balconies offering a fabulous outside space to relax and take in the tranquil waterside views.  Two private parking spaces are allocated per household in a secure, gated underground car park.

In an area popular year-round with sailing enthusiasts, Brightlingsea lies at the mouth of the Colne Estuary, sheltered by the Point Clear Peninsula and enjoying far-reaching countryside vistas to the eastern shores of Mersea Island beyond. Brightlingsea’s idyllic rural location does not, however, mean it’s isolated as it enjoys excellent road and rail connections to the national motorway network via the A120 just 7 miles away and London Liverpool Street via Wivenhoe station approximately 8 miles away.

Brightlingsea’s town centre offers excellent amenities for everyday requirements, as well as local primary and secondary schools, the Colne Valley Yacht Club and many local eateries including No. 1 Harbour Square and The Yachtsman’s Public House & Restaurant.

Tracey Wheelan, Sales Director at The Purelake Group, said: “Our aim is always to deliver exceptional homes in first class locations and over the years we’ve built an enviable reputation as a developer of high quality, innovative properties. When the first Harbourside properties came onto the market they quickly became one of the most desirable addresses in the area. We believe this new release of townhouses to the market will prove to be just as popular.”

“This bustling waterfront community has so much to offer: beautifully-appointed homes in a picturesque setting within easy reach of exceptional shopping, dining and leisure opportunities,” said Maria Montgomery, Head of New Homes at Fenn Wright. “Stylish, luxurious and set in a unique location, these homes really do offer the very best of modern living and a fantastic coastal lifestyle.”

The launch of the townhouses is taking place on Saturday 7th March between 11am – 2pm. If you would like to attend or arrange a viewing, please contact our Colchester team on 01206 763388.
