We currently have the opportunity to offer a newly refurbished, two bedroom, spacious apartment in one of the best locations in all of St. Albans. Being a short, 4 minute walk from the St Albans City station, you can understand why this property is extremely sought after.
This station is also especially desirable as it has direct trains to Kings Cross St Pancras in just half an hour, London Gatwick in an hour and 20 minutes for those who need to travel further than just London, and for those looking for a quick weekend away, the station has trains directly to Brighton with a journey of under 2 hours! This property is perfect for London commuters.
If you have a family there is no need to fret! The closest primary schools are only 6 minutes away and places the property directly in the catchment area. In terms of secondary schools, the Veralum Secondary School is only a 10 minute walk and is also in the catchment area for the school.
In terms of the town itself, St Albans is a beautiful, picturesque town and was recently voted 10th in the Telegraph’s best places to live list, which assessed 7,137 areas across England and Wales, but it is also considered the ideal place to live within commuter range of London. The city’s colourful history can be seen in the Roman remains and the beautiful medieval architecture, St Albans cathedral being at the centre and also some of the Roman ruins in Verulamium Park. The shopping centre emits a very traditional vibe with a bi-weekly street market in St Peter’s Street and a farmers’ market. There are traditional independent shops in George Street and Holywell Hill, and Christopher Place has a variety of smart shops, cafés and restaurants. Taking only 4 minutes by bus, 10 by car and 15 by foot the town centre is easily accessible.
St Albans has several beautiful parks and open spaces providing the ideal places to unwind, enjoy a picnic, a summer’s stroll or get involved in sports.
Those looking for entertainment will be happy to know that St Albans is home to several theatres that put on regular performances as well as having the incredibly luxurious Odyssey cinema that shows the latest blockbuster films as well as special viewings of timeless classics.
