Last property at Harbourside exchanges

03 Nov 21

We are pleased to share that last month we exchanged on the last available property at Harbourside in Brightlingsea, a landmark development by The Purelake Group.

Fenn Wright were instrumental in the sale of the Waterside Marina development to The Purelake Group in 2016.  The site was sold by Roger Hayward, Consultant and former Senior Partner of Fenn Wright, and had been part-constructed by another developer who went into receivership.  The inherited consent consisted of a mixture of fifty-two, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and duplexes and 5 houses, many with spectacular views of the River Colne and surrounding a beautifully landscaped courtyard garden.

Our New Homes team released the units in phases, subject to the build programme, with a marketing suite at the marina and a model of the site.  A number of apartments were purchased off-plan whilst under construction, a year away from completion, and a later phase included the release of 5 three-storey townhouses with terraces overlooking the marina.

Maria Montgomery, head of New Homes at Fenn Wright commented “We ensured we had a strong presence on site and were delighted to join in with local events such as Brightlingsea Regatta, which was sponsored by Purelake.  We have a wonderful sales progression team at Fenn Wright, who regularly provided feedback to our client, along with a weekly report giving details of applicants who had enquired about the site and an update on existing sales.  I’m pleased to say that the final completion took place in October 2021”.

Tracey Wheelan, Sales Director at Purelake added “The Purelake Group have worked closely with Fenn Wright on our Harbourside development in Brightlingsea.  We have found Maria and the team to be extremely dedicated and knowledgeable. They have worked hard to secure sales with considerable enthusiasm and expertise, and we would recommend them without reservation”.
