Highfields

A new development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes on the outskirts of St Albans


Highfields

A stunning development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes in a rural setting on the outskirts of the historic city of St Albans. The city has a thriving cultural life, with regular concerts and theatre productions held within the many venues in the city centre including The Alban Arena, Abbey Theatre and the Albans Art Theatre. It also offers excellent sports and leisure facilities such as leisure centres, tennis and golf clubs and even a country club. The famous Clarence Park in the centre of St Albans covers approximately 25 acres and is split into a formal park with beautiful lawns and flower beds to explore, whilst the other half is a recreation ground for the numerous sports activities available all year round. In addition, the open green spaces at Highfield Park are a short walk away and provide the perfect retreat to relax in all year round. When it comes to shopping, this busy historic city offers a wide and varied choice from independent boutique shops, well-known high street stores to the town’s market itself which is held twice a week. You will also find many restaurants and eateries scattered throughout the town offering everything from Thai, French, Italian, to traditional gastro pub food and seafood specialists. Highfields offers rural living with the benefits of being close to a major city and within easy reach of London. The development is 3 miles from St Albans station with regular trains to London St Pancras in just 20 minutes taking you to the heart of the City. As well as excellent rail links the development is close to the major roads such as the M1, M25 and the A1 making any journey by car a simple one. The development has a number of golf courses to enjoy close by and many village pubs with a great community feel giving you every excuse to take the family out for Sunday lunch.
