About the Braintree area

Essex Live have quoted the Braintree district as one of the “foodie capitals of Essex”. You can seek out hidden gems in our market towns and villages and discover a host of independent shops and boutiques, cafes and tea rooms, farmers’ markets and award-winning independent vineyards, breweries and distilleries.

So, what’s unique about us? We host a designer shopping village offering over 70 brands, visit Thomas the Tank Engine at our Colne Valley steamed railway and there’s something for the children at Essex’s biggest climbing frame at Great Notley Country Park.

The district’s location means we are surrounded by breath-taking scenery and idyllic villages with many cycling and walking routes revealing the true tranquillity of our countryside’s – all just one hour by train from London and 20 minutes from the international Stansted Airport.

Properties In Braintree

Braintree has a range of different property types across the town, from beautiful period homes through to Victorian terraces as well as much more contemporary garden village at Great Notley.

Popular villages where we have had properties for sale and let include; Rayne, Bocking, High Garrett, Great Notley, Felstead, Cressing, Finchingfield, and Shelford.

Braintree Property Prices

Like much of mid-Essex, the pandemic really drove up demand for houses in Essex. Property prices in Halstead increased as many people sought to leave London and other more built-up areas. Much of this movement was in search of a more peaceful life in villages with easy access to Chelmsford, Stansted airport and the capital. With changes to working patterns and more people willing to take a hybrid approach with only a couple of days requiring a commute, Halstead is well-placed to provide everything that larger numbers of buyers are looking for.

“I recently sold my house through Martin Webb. It was the best experience I have ever had buying or selling a house – they managed everything, including a slight hiccup with a survey! They were professional, honest and communicated so well with everyone. We got the price we wanted and they made it all so much easier and less stressful than I have ever experienced. I got weekly updates, never had to chase for information and they showed me why estate agents can be so valuable.”
