Best places to live in Chelmsford

Chelmsford is well known as an affluent and charming place to live, so wherever you settle you’re sure to find a home you’ll love. But if you’re after something specific, here’s a handy guide to some of the most desirable places to live in Chelmsford.


This historic area is still growing, with new developments underway – as well as a new train station and business park, which will make Springfield a great choice for commuters. There are eight primary schools and two secondary schools, and the new developments will add more. With an average property price of £378,624, Springfield is on the pricier side, but well worth the investment.

Great Baddow

Another urban village, Great Baddow benefits from having plenty of good amenities, but with a slightly lower average property price of £360,226. You’ll find a GP and a pharmacy, plus pubs, restaurants and even a shopping centre at The Vineyards. With some truly beautiful listed period properties in the area, Great Baddow is a charming place to live.

Old Moulsham

With a bustling high street full of independents and some excellent schools in the area, the quiet suburb of Old Moulsham is a great place to settle – and with an average property price of £333,900, you can find a bargain compared to some other more expensive areas of Chelmsford.

East Hanningfield

Dating back to the Domesday Book in 1086, East Hanningfield is a historic and charming village. Now fully developed for the modern day, residents can visit chic restaurants like Vita Bella and plenty of history in the old All Saint’s church graveyard. Average property prices are around £377,239 in this historic village.


The picturesque village of Writtle is a popular choice for idyllic country living – with a traditional village green, church and duck pond. But despite the country life feel, Writtle is still a very well served area, with a GP and dentist, and some good schools nearby. Expect to pay around £381,071 for a property in this much-desired area.
