Gabriel Square offers luxurious living space with access to a beautiful garden square


Named after the Gabriel Bell in St Albans’ historic clock tower, Gabriel Square is a collection of luxury homes arranged around a landscaped communal garden.

The prestigious new housing development includes 52 three and four-bed townhouses and 28 one, two and three-bed apartments.

Conran and Partners have given the homes a 'Modernist' design concept using natural materials to reflect the local stone of St Albans' famous cathedral. Stand-out features include secure parking, Control4 Smart Homes Automationand Poggenpohl kitchens.

Built on the three-acre site of the former print works, Eversheds, the new build homes are built around a beautiful communal garden. The developer Meyer Homes set out to create a unique space by mixing contemporary and traditional features with plenty of greenery. The result is a tranquil oasis where residents can relax and socialise.

James Moody, managing director at Meyer Homes, said: "Our ethos is to make sure we are connecting our buildings with the local area and its people.

"Our collaboration with David Harber at Gabriel Square has achieved just that - there are a lot of cultural values that we share with a garden and the sense of home."

Gabriel Square has won a number of awards, including Home of the Year (in a multi-unit scheme) at The Sunday Times British Home Awards 2017 and Best Out of London Home (under 100) at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2018. The esteemed new housing development also won gold in the Best Interior Design category and silver for Best House at the national WhatHouse? Awards 2017.

Gabriel Square currently has a limited number of luxury homes for sale, including one duplex, one two-bedroom apartment and several townhouses.
