The car remains the most popular mode of transport for travelling to work, making parking and good road links among the top criteria for house-hunters when choosing their new home. According to the most recent government data, two thirds of British people usually make their journey to work by car, with an average travel time of 38 minutes each way. Recognising that car usage is central to many people’s lifestyles, the new homes at Farrier’s Wood in Hertfordshire not only each have either a garage or at least two allocated parking spaces, but also the location in the village of Garston is ideally placed for access to the road network, close to the M1 and M25.
Set on the edge of leafy green belt countryside, Farrier’s Wood is a collection of three private blocks of elegantly designed one and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses. Carefully crafted by Inland Homes, the properties come in a range of sizes and layouts to suit a variety of lifestyles from first time buyers and growing families to those downsizing for retirement. Unlike many new build developments where parking spaces are not guaranteed especially for apartments, or come at an extra cost, each property at Farrier’s Wood has private designated parking.
Vicki Noon, Sales and Marketing Director at Inland Homes, comments: “We realise that cars are an essential part of daily life for most people and so having a safe and secure place to park a vehicle is a must-have. At Farrier’s Wood, we carefully considered the design and layout to suit the needs of modern living – even the one-bedroom apartments have two parking spaces each and many houses have three parking spaces in addition to a garage, which is very unusual for a new build development. With its convenient location close to Watford but on the edge of open countryside, Farrier’s Wood strikes the ideal balance and is attracting strong buyer interest.”
The apartments at Farrier’s Wood are designed with Inland Homes’ signature high quality specification and attention to detail, including underfloor heating, fitted wardrobes and video entry phone for peace of mind. The apartments in Phase 1 are set within an attractive three storey red brick building Belmore House, situated within attractively landscaped communal gardens. Interiors are laid out with spacious open-plan kitchen/living areas filled with natural light. Designer kitchens feature a range of integrated Bosch appliances and contemporary worktop lighting.
