Downsizing Retirees Buy Off-Plan At New Development In Bushey Heath

31st Jul 2015

Retired Hertfordshire couple Mr and Mrs David Speker from Radlett have recently purchased a two bedroom apartment off-plan at luxury new development, The White House in Bushey Heath. Despite them downsizing from their family home of 12 years, the space that their new apartment offers hopefully means they will not be feeling any space pinch.

Situated in Sparrow’s Herne, The White House by leading Hertfordshire developer Heronslea Group provides views of the valley and surrounding countryside and offers lateral modern living in a popular village location, all within easy reach of local amenities. Mr Speker comments: “Our family home has become too big for us, we wanted a bungalow but couldn’t find anything we liked, so we started looking at apartments, we wanted something new with no maintenance. When we came across this development we were really impressed and knew straight away we wanted to live there.”   

The White House is a collection of just 16 one and two-bedroom apartments, set within a stylish modern building extending over four floors. Internally homes are generously proportioned and crafted to an extremely high standard, with each home boasting charming balconies or private garden terraces. Set to become Bushey’s Heath most desirable new development, it is ideally located close to a range of shops, parks and transport links, and provides a high level of security with gated basement parking, and video entry/alarm system fitted to each home. 

Mr Speker continues: “We have chosen to buy a two-bedroom ground floor apartment with a patio at the back and we are really looking forward to moving in soon. We liked the location and the area as well as the amenities that the development has - the basement parking with lifts and storage space both in the basement and apartment. Our only concern was buying off-plan, something we have never done before but Heronslea have been really helpful and guided us through the process. We had seen other developments but were impressed with the quality and finish at The White House.”

Hertfordshire offers Londoners a great option for downsizers where buyers can get more for their money, improved lifestyle and excellent transport links into the capital.

Shelley West Sales and Marketing Director of Heronslea Group comments:” With property prices in the capital ever increasing, homes like these in the Super Suburbs of Hertfordshire are appealing as people thinking of moving a bit further out can get a lot more for their money. The White House is perfect for people wanting to downsize their space but upscale their quality of life. We have been building for the downsizers market for many years, so over this time we have changed our designs to reflect what people are looking for. We have now sold 65% of the apartments here off-plan they have been very popular with downsizers like Mr and Mrs Speaker seeking a newer home, in leafy surroundings with the added extras of interior designed specification, security and basement gated parking.”

Each home has been built using the highest quality and finest design with only the best furnishings and fittings being selected. Internally the apartments are spacious ranging in size from 807 sq. ft. to 1,254 sq. ft. and offer a range of living accommodation from open plan kitchen/lounge areas to kitchen diners and separate lounge areas. Each home benefits from a larger than average hall with storage cupboards and a lift from each floor with direct access to the underground car park. Homes are light and airy benefiting from high ceilings and large windows.

Bushey Heath is a highly sought-after area offering a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs on its doorstep. The town and its surroundings is home to a number of historic buildings, many of which have been used as backdrops to films and television series and also benefits from an abundance of green space including Bushey Country Club, Mary Forsdyke Gardens and Bushey Rose Garden. Close by is Aldenham Country Park with its 600 acres of parkland and Hartsbourne Golf and Country Club.

The White House is located in Bushey Village close to Bushey High Street and only a 15 minute drive from Watford Town Centre. For commuters Bushey Overground Station is close by and provides direct access into London Euston in just 20 Minutes. By road Bushey is easily accessible from both the M25 and M1.

Prices start from £415,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and from £550,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. For further information please contact the selling agents Preston Bennett on 020 8954 8626 or visit Heronslea Group visit
