Property description

With a selection of three-bedroom houses, two and three-bedroom apartments and two four-bedroom duplex apartments created within four carefully designed new buildings, this new development offers plenty of choice.

Each new home has been designed according to Beechcroft's principle of creating homes with generously-proportioned living space but with fewer bedrooms than one would expect in a mainstream property of a similar size. Each energy-efficient, easily-maintained, new home features fixtures and fittings of the highest quality and the majority provide outside space in the form of balconies or terraces.

An Estate Manager is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the development, including the maintenance and cleaning of the communal areas and the upkeep of both private and communal gardens.

St. Albans Life

The city was named for Alban, Britain's first Christian martyr and today the Abbey bearing his name welcomes visitors from all over the world. The Romans played an important role in the city's history and, set within a 100-acre park, the Verulamium Museum houses a collection of remarkable artefacts that chronicle life in the Roman era. Just a short stroll across the park is the Roman hypocaust and the mosaic that covers it; the only remaining remnants of a Roman town house which once occupied this site.

Much of the city's architecture, including the clock tower and the romantic ruins of the Tudor mansion built on the site of Sopwell Nunnery, dates from the medieval period. The latest addition to St Albans' attractions is an impressive new museum and art gallery soon to open within the Georgian Town Hall. Just a couple of miles outside St Albans, Redbournbury Mill, a historic working watermill, produces organic, stoneground flours and delicious breads. In Redbourn, a former steam-powered silk mill, once used as a tea-packing factory, has been transformed into a village museum. The fascinating collection of artworks at Gorhambury House, built for the 3rd Viscount Grimston in the late 1700s and still home to the family, is certainly worth a visit.

For those who love the outdoors, over 850 acres of land at Heartwood Forest are being transformed into the largest native forest in England – a place to walk, cycle ride or take part in events such as annual summer festivals, woodcraft demonstrations and woodland yoga. Friends and family of all ages will love exploring the delights of Hatfield House, set amongst woodland and parkland, just eight miles from St Albans.
