Construction has begun on Woodlands, the exciting first phase of new homes across Watford Riverwell.
An impressive, long-term regeneration scheme which is the result of a partnership between Watford Borough Council and Kier Property to develop a large area of land to the south of Watford Hospital and Watford Football Club.
Anticipated to launch to the public from an onsite marketing suite on 21 July, Woodlands will comprise 95 contemporary 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments across three blocks.
These spacious, highly specified homes are located a short walk from the River Colne which has undergone an intensive clean-up process as part of the scheme’s regeneration, and which runs through the heart of the scheme, alongside a swathe of protected riverside parkland.
Each modern apartment has an impressive specification. The kitchens are complete with Silestone worktops and integrated appliances, while the bathrooms feature sleek sanitaryware and full height tiling from Porcelanosa.
Engineered oak flooring will be used throughout the living areas, and carpet within the bedrooms.
Additional elements include an energy efficient communal heating system, built-in mirrored wardrobes to the master bedroom, balcony/terrace to all apartments, lift access and stairs within each building, secure cycle storage, allocated parking to selected apartments, and a 10 year NHBC warranty.
Watford Riverwell is the largest regeneration project in Watford and will see the rejuvenation of derelict industrial land into over 1,000 much-needed new homes.
Alongside private and affordable new homes, the developers of Watford Riverwell have proposed the inclusion of a new two-form entry primary school, 4.5 acres of green community space, over 250-bed retirement village, and new retail premises which aim to bring circa 1,300 new jobs to the area.
Located in the heart of Watford, residents of Woodlands will benefit from living in a naturally inspiring setting that is only a short walk from the town centre.
Situated just outside London, Watford is a vibrant town boasting a thriving social, shopping and dining scene as well as excellent schools and easy access to open countryside.
The Intu shopping centre offers access to a range of high street stores including the Apple store, John Lewis, H&M, Zara and M&S.
The current redevelopment of the centre, which will be completed by the end of 2018, will see it move into the top 20 retail centres in the country.
Woodlands residents will also benefit from the extensive choice of restaurants, bars, and amenities that Watford has to offer.
Well-suited to commuters, Woodlands is located close to Watford Junction with a journey into London Euston taking just 18 minutes. London Overground lines also run from Watford Junction to a range of destinations including Wembley Central (21 minutes) and Kensington Olympia (46 minutes).
The town is also on the London underground Metropolitan Line and is well-connected to the national road network (M1 and M25) and both Heathrow and Luton airports.
