Situated in the heart of Bushey, Mawson Gardens is a collection of eight 2 bedroom apartments. Launching this weekend, 20 and 21 September, this new-build scheme - created by Shanly Homes - is framed by a stunning Grade II-listed façade making it a truly unique development.
Steeped in history, the site was originally the home of Lululaund, a property designed by prominent American architect Henry Hobson Richardson for artist Sir Hubert von Herkomer, in lieu of payment for a portrait.
The only example of this American architect's work in Britain, the demolition of the original home took place pre-World War II, with the eye-catching front door and its tympanum (the semi-circular decorative wall surface over the entrance bounded by the arch) remaining.
The original property also enjoyed stunning gardens which were designed by celebrated landscape architect, Thomas Mawson - hence the name of this exclusive development.
At Mawson Gardens, the original Victorian façade of Lululaund has been respectfully restored and retained, ultimately providing a striking focal point at the entrance of this development. Every home has been specifically designed to exude old-world elegance externally, with the best in modern amenities and high specification internally.
Each apartment has been carefully created for contemporary living and features large open-plan living/dining rooms, spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms, ample storage space, and luxury fitted kitchens.
The stylish high gloss kitchens are complete with stone work surfaces, an AEG oven and 5 burner gas hob, and an integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The master suites and second bedrooms are complete with fitted wardrobes, with the master bedroom featuring an elegant en-suite shower room.
Furthermore, each apartment benefits from a lift to all floors, security alarm wiring, a video entry system, private allocated parking, and access to beautifully manicured landscaped communal gardens.
Mawson Gardens is located in Melbourne Road - an established residential road close to Bushey High Street. With Watford on its doorstep and London a 30 minute train ride away, Bushey still manages to retain a village feel. Excellent transport links via the M1 make the suburb easily accessible to surrounding areas.
Bushey is located close to renowned schools including the nationally regarded Purcell School for gifted young musicians - Britain's oldest specialist music school - as well as Harrow School, Merchant Taylor’s and North London Collegiate.
Local leisure facilities include Bushey Golf and Country Club, Bushey Hall Golf Club, and Aldenham Country Park.
Prices at Mawson Gardens start from £499,950.
