Housebuilder Weston Homes is returning to Hitchin, Hertfordshire, with yet another high-specification property development offering a range of spacious one and two bedroom apartments. Lyon Court will be officially launched by Alex Partridge, 32, at an exclusive VIP event on-site. Partridge is a British rower and has succeeded in two Olympic Games, winning a Bronze in London, 2012, and Silver in Beijing, 2008.
The launch will also mark the opening of the sales and marketing suite located adjacent to the stylish, expertly-designed show home on the ground floor which will be open to the public from Saturday, 2 February. Visitors to the show home can discuss their living requirements with experienced members of staff, who will also be able to guide prospective purchasers through the range of layouts, designs and finishes available in the units.
Hitchin is also one of the best connected commuter towns in Hertfordshire with a frequent train service to Kings Cross, reaching London in just 25 minutes. Surrounded by the stunning Hertfordshire landscape and countryside, homeowners can have the best of both worlds and the brilliant quality of life afforded those who look beyond London and into the Home Counties for a comfortable lifestyle.
Located on Walsworth Road, next to the Hitchin train station, Lyon Court is the clever conversion of a former commercial building and will be transformed into 35 one and two bedroom generously sized apartments. All of the properties will be finished to the high Weston Homes standard and are designed to suit a variety of purchasers from young professionals and downsizers to local investors.
Bob Weston, Founder and Chairman of Weston Homes, comments: “Lyon Court is the masterful conversion of a former commercial building meaning that the beautiful surrounds are untouched and the existing footprint is upgraded for residential use to meet local and regional housing needs.
We’ve seen wonderful successes in Hertfordshire before with many developments being snapped up by astute buyers. From Letchworth to Hitchin, and Bishops Stortford to Hertford, we are determined to grow our property portfolio in these great towns to provide high-quality properties, which meet the demand for new homes. The apartments at Lyon Court won’t be around for long – they are well-appointed, excellently positioned directly next to the train station and even have the convenience of a Tesco Express store on the ground floor.”
Featuring airy and light-filled layouts designed with style and comfort in mind, the main living room serves as a kitchen, lounge and dining area maximising the space and creating contemporary-styled homes for busy lifestyles. Kitchens will be fitted with a choice of designer units and worktops by Oakwood Kitchens, while the luxury bathrooms and en-suites will boast modern chrome finishes, mosaic tile features and high-specification sanitary ware. Purchasers will also be able to tailor their apartments by choosing from a variety of flooring, built-in wardrobes and carpeting options.
Allocated basement parking, cycle storage and landscaped gardens make up the communal areas of Lyon Court and provide just a little bit of extra convenience, while commuting from Hitchin is easy and straightforward. London King’s Cross can be reached within half an hour on a frequent train service, enabling fast and convenient access to the city. In addition the A1 (M) is just over three miles away or drivers can head south to the M25 in less than 25 minutes. For those travelling further afield, Luton Airport is 10 miles away offering flights throughout Europe.
Hitchin offers a varied selection of leisure activities and within half a mile of Lyon Court are superb gym facilities and the Hitchin Swimming Centre, with both indoor and outdoor pools. The summertime sports of golfing and horse riding are within easy reach both only two miles away. More relaxed entertainment can be found at one of the town’s theatres with the Queen Mother Theatre only a few minutes stroll from Lyon Court, or residents can enjoy a meal at one of the many vibrant restaurants lining the streets of the main town centre.
Inns and courtyards of the past act as charming reminders of the bygone days of this archetypal English market town. Originally dating back to the Roman times, Hitchin is today a lively town boasting a large range of high street and independent shops, perfectly suited to the needs of today’s diverse lifestyles. Walking around the parish church of St Mary in the centre of the town, it’s clear how Hitchin's medieval plan has altered little from the time the church was built. The streets radiate outwards with markets, shops, and a charming riverside frontage close at hand.
Beautiful countryside beside a charming and historical market town with great transport links – these high-specification apartments provide a superb lifestyle with competitive prices from £139, 995.
