January 7th 2022

If you are planning to move home in 2022, you want to find a great place to move to.

At Intercounty, we believe Chelmsford is a good place to live, and there are many reasons you’ll enjoy living here.

What does Chelmsford have to offer?

We think there are many brilliant things about life in Chelmsford, and the local transport options are appealing. Knowing you can travel from Chelmsford Train Station to Liverpool Steet in London in just over half an hour is a great comfort.

Whether you are commuting or looking to make the most of what London has to offer, this is a dependable service.

Of course, you don’t need to go to London to have a great day out, there are many fantastic attractions to enjoy in the local area. You can check out Chelmsford Cathedral, Hylands House, the Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre, Central Park, the RHS Garden Hyde Hall and the Essex Police Museum without travelling far at all.

And even if they attractions don’t interest you, knowing there are more than 20 parks in Chelmsford is likely to cheer you up. It is fair to say most of us enjoy spending quality time outdoors, and you have many brilliant options to consider in Chelmsford.

There are many reasons why house prices rise, but one of the most pertinent reasons is there is a greater level of demand for homes than there are homes being supplied to the market.
