Welwyn Garden City is one of the finest examples of modern town planning. It was built soon after the First World War by Sir Ebenezer Howard who was founder of the garden city movement.
It has a neo-Georgian town centre with residential and business estates laid out along tree-lined avenues and is surrounded by beautiful countryside.
It is just north of the River Lea and conveniently close to the A1(M) motorway, which makes it a popular commuter town.
It is a successful business centre, but also offers excellent leisure opportunities including the 126 acre Stanborough Park which boasts sailing and boating lakes alongside an outdoor swimming pool.
The Gosling sports centre offers a dry ski slope, golf driving range, indoor and outdoor tennis, squash, a velodrome, gym and bowls.
There are also three golf courses close by.
There are excellent indoor shopping facilities at the Howard Centre and Welwyn Garden City hosts a Fine Food and Crafts fair twice a month, as well as continental markets throughout the year.
Campus West near the town centre offers a theatre, roller skating rink and a library, and the Coronation Fountain is an attractive feature of the town close to an enticing range of places to have a quiet coffee and watch the world go by.
The town centre offers a wide selection of restaurants and there are several lively pubs nearby.
Welwyn Garden City benefits from excellent transport links that make this town a very desirable place to live.
There are two, and sometimes three, trains every hour to Kings Cross – with the fast train taking only 26 minutes travelling time.
There are also regular trains to Moorgate, which is a 40 minute journey and trains to Stevenage are a short 10 minute hop.
Welwyn Garden City is close to the A1(M) giving easy access to London, and the Great North Road passes close by the A1(M).
The A414 is only a short distance away and it takes only 15 minutes to reach the M25.
St Albans and Luton can be reached via the B653.
Luton and Stansted airports are within comfortable travelling distance.
The apartments are due for completion in September 2021. However, purchasing off plan in advance of this date can be discussed.
