Retire to an elegant, three-bedroom home in St Albans

If you’re over 55 and looking for a new home that will be easy to maintain, energy-efficient and a delight to live in but with sufficient space to have family and friends to stay, make sure you don’t miss out on Beechcroft’s Maryland Place in St Albans.

Inspired architecturally by Hertfordshire’s ‘Arts & Crafts’ architecture, this attractive development comprises just 35 two and three-bedroom houses, apartments and penthouses set in mature, landscaped and fully-maintained grounds on Townsend Drive.   With over three decades of experience in the retirement market, Beechcroft understands the importance of the landscaping – and of providing an attractive setting for home buyers.  Both communal grounds and private gardens have, therefore, been planted to provide texture, colour and year-round interest and to mature beautifully over time.

Currently, a selection of luxurious three-bedroom houses and apartments are on offer with prices starting from £760,000 – along with a fabulous two-bedroom penthouse with direct lift access and three private balconies at £875,000.   These brand-new homes are outstanding examples of what award-winning retirement developer, Beechcroft, does best.  Each new home has been designed to provide plenty of generously-proportioned living space and at least two double bedrooms along with outside space in the form of a private terrace, balcony or private garden.    

In the elegant houses, the drawing room opens onto a separate dining room which, in turn, leads to a sun room.  There’s a separate kitchen and some houses also have a study area.  Outside, there’s a terrace and a private garden maintained by the estate management service - which means you won’t return from holiday to a garden that’s overgrown. The internal doors are glazed, ensuring that the interiors are full of light.

One of the three-bedroom ground floor apartments currently available has a private garden and all the other apartments have either a terrace or balcony.  At the heart of many of the apartments is a dining/hall which is flexible living space, ideal for use as a reception area, study or library but large enough to accommodate a dining table for family celebrations or entertaining friends.

At Maryland Place, the fixtures and fittings are of the highest standard – and the new homes come complete with flooring including carpets, bathrooms and en-suites include vanity units and fitted mirrors and kitchens feature bespoke cabinets and a full range of brand-name integrated appliances.

For further information on the new homes at Maryland Place, please contact Beechcroft’s sales team on 01727-869674 between 10 am and 5 pm, Tuesday to Saturday inclusive or visit the website on www.beechcroft.co.uk.
