London homebuyers have no doubt reaped the rewards of new home working habits, helping to reduce commutes and secure a move outside the capital that offers a better life balance and value for money for commuters. One county that is becoming a popular choice for London’s commuters is Hertfordshire – offering the perfect combination of rural living with the bonus of still being close to London, making this the perfect location for buyers.
For those eager to get on the ladder here, Scholars by Chase New Homes has just launched a stunning new collection of two-bedroom apartments located in the charming Hertfordshire town of Broxbourne. Surrounded by picturesque green spaces, high quality amenities and a 29-minute commute into London Liverpool Street – buyers can enjoy the best of both worlds on their doorstep.
Enjoying a prime spot within this secluded and leafy Hertfordshire location, Scholars is set within the former grounds of the highly regarded Broxbourne School. The new collection of two-bedroom apartments at Scholars form part of a wider collection of beautiful three, four and five bedroom family homes. Thoughtfully designed, these spacious, well-planned properties benefit from a high-quality specification throughout.
Stylish open plan living, kitchen and dining areas all feature French doors that open onto a private garden terrace or decked balcony – staging a versatile space for entertaining, relaxing and working from home. Both bedrooms are generously sized with the master enjoying its own stylish ensuite and fitted wardrobe. Every apartment features a convenient utility cupboard in the hallway, and a further storage cupboard ensures the home is kept clutter-free. Residents will also have access to two parking spaces per apartment.
“Hertfordshire has certainly become a sought-after location for buyers who no longer feel the need to be tied to London, but still want the option to travel there in under an hour. The new collection of apartments at Scholars provides a great opportunity for professionals to secure a stunning new home that offers the life balance that many are now making a priority. The Hertfordshire town of Broxbourne has plenty to offer and is a relatively undervalued commuter town – just 17 miles north of London. Scholars is within one mile of Broxbourne Station where there are direct train links into London Liverpool Street in just half an hour making it very appealing for commuters,” said Paul Bennet, Sales and Marketing Director at Chase New Homes.
Offering an attractive medley of tranquillity and convenience, Broxbourne is situated near the River Lea and provides plenty to enjoy close to Scholars. Broxbourne High Road is a short walk away and offers a choice of local amenities, convenience stores, independent boutiques and cosy country pubs. When the working week is finished, enjoying time outdoors couldn’t be easier. Nearby River Lea offers a beautiful canal-side cycling route that takes residents into north London and beyond. National Nature Reserve Broxbourne Woods has more than 230 hectares to explore, Hertfordshire Golf and Country Club is a short drive from the development, or for a day trip out with a difference, the award-winning Paradise Wildlife Park is just two miles away.
For those who need to commute, Scholars is well placed for easy travel by car or public transport. Regular services run into Stratford and London Liverpool Street, alongside Hertford East and Cambridge in the north, as well as links to Stanstead, Heathrow and Luton Airports. For those who prefer to commute by car, there is easy access to the A10, A414, M25 and M11.
