King's Park, Lexden

Park Road, Colchester, Essex, CO3 3UL

Park Road,Colchester,Essex,CO3 3UL Map

Lexden is an historic suburb of Colchester which has been designated a conservation area due to its heritage, which stretches all the way back to the Doomsday Book. It's also one of the most popular locations to live in Colchester, with Park Road, home of King's Park, and of the town's most sought after addresses.

Where better to build our award winning Heritage Collection, with a choice of two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Just amile from the centre of the famous old town, with excellent connections to London, yet with a quiet village identity all of its own, Lexden offers the very best of both worlds - just like the Heritage Collection itself.
