Downsize without compromise in Harpenden

Each new or converted Beechcroft home in Harpenden will provide plenty of light-filled living space, designed according to Beechcroft’s principle of creating high-quality homes with an abundance of living space.

The fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality; kitchens include bespoke cabinets and a full range of top brand appliances, bathrooms include vanity units and mirrors, wardrobes are fitted in the main bedrooms and flooring, including carpeting, is included. Where possible, each new home will feature outside space – in the form of a terrace, balcony, private garden or a combination of these, along with allocated parking. The landscaped gardens will be a delight with a variety of plants to provide texture, colour and year-round interest. 

An Ideal Retirement Location

With woods, parkland and countryside almost on the doorstep and good transport links, Harpenden has plenty to offer anyone retiring to this upmarket town. Once an agricultural village, Harpenden has developed into town with a warm community spirit and a ‘village feel.’ In fact, locals are often heard to say they are ‘going to the village’ when heading into town.

Harpenden’s spacious, tree-lined High Street provides a good mix of chain stores and independent shops selling everything from high end fashion to accessories for the home and garden with further shops along Southdown Road – including a fabulous delicatessen. There are three supermarkets in the town – Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and The Co-op as well as plenty of cafes, restaurants and gastro-pubs. For a special occasion The Auberge du Lac at Brocket Hall is a fine dining establishment. Harpenden holds a farmer’s market every fourth Sunday of the month offering a delicious array of colourful fruit and vegetables and local produce.

Green open spaces abound in Harpenden. The superb 238 acre Common is a great place to walk or cycle or play cricket or golf – indeed, Harpenden Cricket Club has been playing on the Common for over 150 years. Both the Common and Lydekker Park have won prestigious Green Flag awards in the past - and there’s also Rothamsted Park which hosts the annual Harpenden Carnival and Highland Games. For those who love cycling or walking, the Nikey Line is a route created along the disused railway line which once connected Harpenden with Hemel Hempstead.

Harpenden Leisure Centre has a swimming pool, gym and fitness classes and, for golfers, there are two local clubs. The Harpenden Common Golf Club is on 18-hole course on the Common and The Harpenden Golf Club is an 18-hole parkland course on Redbourn Lane.

Discover a New Beginning with Beechcroft

With over 35 years’ experience in the creation of award-winning developments for the over 55s, Beechcroft selects sites in the most desirable villages and market towns in the southern counties.

Our beautifully crafted houses and apartments are stylish, energy-efficient, easily maintained and a delight to live in. Every home provides plenty of living space but fewer bedrooms than a family home and either a terrace, balcony or private garden.

Inspired by local architecture, each Beechcroft scheme is unique, complementing the local area. Rather than being a ‘finishing touch’, landscaping is integral to the development – carefully planned and lovingly planted.

An Estate Manager is responsible for maintaining the development, being on hand to offer help and advice and keeping an eye on properties whilst owners are away – giving you peace of mind when travelling at home or abroad.
