Welwyn Garden City is proving a sought-after address for those looking for a modern lifestyle, with the average property price being a considerable 36% lower than the London average, according to Rightmove. Bellway Homes’ latest development, Bellway at QEII, has launched its second phase, selling 29 apartments for the first time. The first phases of houses witnessed particularly high demand due to the stylish, contemporary nature of its 163 homes, positioned only 40 minutes from central London.
Situated on the site of the former QEII hospital, the homes are set in large, open spaces with tree-lined boulevards and woodland. The one and two-bedroom apartments are now available to purchase off plan. Jody Bryant, Sales Manager for Bellway Homes North London comments: “We are very excited to have launched the apartments at this development, following the fantastic response our houses have received.
“We are finding that buyers are attracted to the garden city surroundings and easy access into the capital. With their prime location in a thriving, rural town just 40 minutes from London we are expecting these homes to be snapped up quickly, so would urge anyone interested to register their interest now.”
A typical two-bedroom apartment features a spacious open-plan kitchen, living and dining area which leads onto a private balcony, master bedrooms with en suites and fitted wardrobes, and an allocated parking space. Attention to detail is evident throughout, demonstrated in everything from the choice of materials to the modern appliances in the kitchens and contemporary sanitaryware in the bathrooms.
