Hertford buyers have plenty to smile about

The Fitzroy at Priory Gate, Hertford

Hertford ranks as one of the happiest places to live in Britain, which comes as no surprise to one housebuilder in the area.

The Home Counties county town came fourth in in Rightmove’s annual Happy at Home Index based on a combination of 12 factors including community spirit, access to sports and arts facilities and opportunities for residents to better themselves.

Kerry McCoubrey, sales director for Redrow Homes (Eastern), which is building new homes at Priory Gate on Mill Road, said: “The Happy at Home Index reflects many of the things we consider when we’re choosing where to build and that are important to homebuyers.

“It’s no surprise to us that Hertford ranks so highly, in fact the area has been such a draw for home buyers that we only have a few homes left. What our customers have in common is their desire to live in this vibrant town which offers a real sense of community, a range of amenities and fantastic transport links. For example, our new homes are ideally situated next to Hertford East station, with trains whisking passengers to London in under an hour.

“Residents will also benefit from being just a few minutes’ walk from a Tesco Extra store; while Hertford itself is home to a selection of independent shops and high street names.”

For those looking for a new home in the area, time is of the essence as Redrow nears the end of its development. The final two Fitzroy homes at Priory Gate are available from £649,995.

Set out over three floors, the four-bedroom properties are reminiscent of Georgian townhouses. Spanning up to 1,436 sq ft they offer a lofty standard of living, that’s well suited to the dynamics of modern family life.

On the ground floor, there’s an open plan kitchen and dining room, cloakroom and laundry area. The lounge can be found on the first floor, along with a bedroom and en-suite. Three bedrooms, including a master with en-suite, and the family bathroom are on the top floor.
