Striking showhome opens in refurbished buildings A striking two-bedroom show apartment has opened at Willow Grange, Barratt North London's exclusive development on a former British Waterways site in Church Road, Watford.

This gated scheme, located in a tranquil and leafy area north of Watford town centre, was launched at the end of January and already 16 properties have been snapped up; even before the arrival of the showhome.

A substantial Victorian building, which was extended in 1991, is being converted and this, along with a variety of newly-built homes, will bring the total number of properties available at Willow Grange to 174.

The development has a beautiful setting amidst 4.8 acres of mature parkland grounds and many of the apartments overlook a large rectangular pond. Part of the landscaping includes a green open space at the front that will be accessible to the general public.

Homes available include one and two-bedroom apartments and just three four-bedroom houses. The newly-built homes will be ready to move in to in September.

The newly-opened showhome is located in the converted buildings, where a number of apartments will be ready for occupation in December. This features a well-designed fitted kitchen with cream cupboards and drawers complimented by dark wood work tops and a range of smart integrated appliances.

The fabulous open-plan living room, with wooden flooring and French doors, includes a dining area, sitting room and a further space at one end that could be used as a study/library. The master bedroom includes an en suite shower room, while the second bedroom is served by a spacious bathroom.

A palette of cream, duck egg blue, pale lime, plum and pink has been used throughout the apartment to great effect, making the most of this light and airy home.

The apartments will have an entry phone system and the converted apartments will have lift facilities. All homes will have private allocated parking.

Glyn Hopping, managing director of Barratt North London, says: "Willow Grange is considered one of the most desirable sites in Watford. Sales are going very well, with many buyers coming from the local area."

The location of Willow Grange is ideal, only a mile from the centre of Watford and offering easy access to the M1 and M25. Watford Junction railway station lies approximately half a mile to the south of the development and provides direct access to London Euston with a journey time of around 20 minutes. Watford Underground station, around a mile away, is located on the Metropolitan Line. There are also direct bus links to Heathrow Airport.

Prices for newly-built one-bedroom apartments start from £202,500, two-bedroom apartments from £262,500 and four-bedroom houses from £470,000. The Sales & Marketing Suite at Willow Grange is open Thursday to Sunday 10am to 6pm, and Mondays 2pm to 6pm. Information on all Barratt developments is available on
