The charming historic market town of Baldock, set in the lovely North Hertfordshire countryside is the location for leading Home Counties developer Weston Homes latest scheme, in the county. The Grove comprises 14 high specification two bedroom apartments, in this lively market town within an easy commute of Central London.
The Grove is located in a pleasant, quiet, mostly residential area, on Icknield Way within easy reach of the amenities of Baldock town centre with its shops, restaurants and pubs. Close to the railway station, which has a good regular service to London Kings Cross, the one and two bedroom apartments will appeal to young professionals and couples wanting to combine the best elements of both city and county lifestyles.
Bob Weston, Chairman and Chief Executive for Weston Homes comments: Following the success of our recent developments in Hertfordshire at Hitchin, Hertford, Bishops Stortford and St Albans, we are delighted to be launching a scheme that offers our signature modern, high quality homes in a beautiful location that combines traditional market town charm, excellent local facilities and excellent transport links, to London and the rest of the country.
The development has a gated entrance and high tech entry phone system with all homes benefiting from an allocated parking space. All apartments are finished with Weston Homes quality, attention to detail and high specification with open-plan lounge/diner and kitchen areas, ideal for modern multi-purpose living.
Buyers can create their own bespoke kitchen area from choice of choice of designer units and worktops that come with quality integrated appliances. Bathrooms and en-suites combine designer Roca Laura wall hung sanitary ware with stylish fittings to provide a luxurious retreat. Bedrooms can also be customised using Westons own Choices range of carpets. All apartments have Sky + facilities and telephone points in lounges and master bedrooms.
Situated in pleasant countryside, 33 miles north of central London, Baldock dates back to the fifth century. The town has long been a staging post for travellers (including the notorious highwayman Dick Turpin) journeying between London and the North.
Today Baldock retains much of this historic charm (including links to the mysterious Knights Templar) and offers excellent shopping, dining and leisure facilities. Many of its old coaching inns still function as pubs, bars and restaurants today. Nearby towns include Letchworth, Hitchin, Stevenage, Bedford and Hertford.
Baldock has excellent transport links with the Home Counties, East Anglia and the rest of the UK via the M1/A1 (a four minute drive). The town also has excellent commuting access by rail to London. The Grove is five minutes walk away from Baldock railway station where the journey to Londons Kings Cross takes between 40-50 minutes.
