East Anglia New Homes Round-up - The Latest New Build Homes in the Region

Posted 17 December 2018 by Rebecca Burns

In our latest round-up of the best new build homes in East Anglia we feature homes for a variety of buyers in Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire...

East Anglia is one of the UK regions to be hit hardest by Brexit, along with London and the South East, according to media reports – with fewer people wanting to sell or move, creating a stagnant market.

Experts say many potential house buyers and sellers are now putting off decisions until there is more certainty over what will happen with Brexit.

For those, however, who are keen to move things along, with plans to buy a home in the more immediate future, we have put together a round-up of some current new schemes in the region – including exciting options for buyers on a range of different budgets. It is also worth buyers looking out for any extra incentives to buy that may be made available at a time when housebuilders are keen to generate greater buyer interest.

Millers Quarter in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk (Weston Homes)

Millers Quarter (Weston Homes)This scheme is made up of 135 modern, luxurious one- and two-bedroom apartments in the heart of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds.
