Imagine life tucked away at Highwell Gardens – our development of 36 beautiful homes in Essex, surrounded by woodland but perfectly connected to the bustle of Southend-on-Sea and London.
You’ll find Highwell Gardens in the village of Hawkwell, a charming community in between historic Rochford and popular Hockley.
