Halstead is an attractive traditional market town straddling the River Colne on the Essex side of the border with Suffolk. The bustling High Street runs up the hill offering a variety of independent shops and a traditional market which is held on Fridays and Saturdays. Our favourite places to eat and drink in Halstead include Whispers tapas and wine bar, The Little Book Cafe and Humes Bakery.
Halstead boasts a medical centre, dental practices, cottage hospital and supermarkets including Sainsbury's, Lidl and East of England Co-op. There are schools for all ages and a number of leisure opportunities including several playing fields and playgrounds, a leisure centre and swimming pool.
Take a look at some of our highlights of Halstead:
Halstead has a range of different property types across the town, from beautiful period homes through to Victorian terraces as well as much more contemporary houses. So whether you are after an 16th century character property that has beams and could be on a postcard or you are looking for an ultimate family-friendly space with open-plan living, then Halstead has it all to offer.
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 Colchester, Chelmsford 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.
Our firm is well-respected in the local area and we are often recommended by our clients. The reason for this is our transparency, honesty and commitment. We focus on getting the right price and sale for our clients and can help manage the process to ensure it goes through as smoothly as possible. With our office in Halstead, we offer free property valuations and are always on hand to help with any last minute viewings.
You can see for yourself what our clients say:
"I recently sold my house through Breadmore 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."
