A move from the city
Amy and Gordon Raines were among the lucky customers to secure one of the 35 plots at the development in Stanway.
The couple were renting a flat near the University of Essex’s Colchester campus and had been saving up to buy their first home. They wanted more indoor space and a garden, and were also keen to be closer to their family.
After seeing an advert for Stoneway Grange, a small development on the city’s outskirts, and finding a three-bedroom Gosford housetype that was ready to move into, the decision couldn’t have been easier.
