New homes in Stevenage
Undergoing one of the largest town centre regeneration schemes in the East of England, the popular commuter town of Stevenage has been awarded a £1 billion pound investment programme set to transform the local area into a thriving destination for residents to live, work and play. For Hertfordshire homebuyers on the hunt for an early opportunity to purchase a property in this up-and-coming district, award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group is set to launch its latest collection of stylish one and two bedroom apartments at Aspects on Saturday 1st October.
Known as one of the UK’s first new towns, Stevenage has recently been awarded a further £37 million pound investment from the government’s Future Town Fund. Along with its ambitious 20-year regeneration plans, this popular Hertfordshire quarter will benefit from a whole host of new amenities including the delivery of more than 7,000 new homes, new retail outlets, a new sports and leisure hub and an exciting expansion to Stevenage train station to support additional connectivity with the rest of the UK.
Enjoying a prime position less than three miles from Stevenage town centre, Aspects is ideally placed to reap the rewards of town, country and speedy commutes. Residents have a choice of two train stations; Knebworth station is just an 8-minute cycle ride away and provides direct journeys into London Kings Cross in 37 minutes. Stevenage train station is also just 10-minutes away by car and offers direct links into London St Pancras in just 24 minutes and to London Bridge in 42 minutes. From here London’s underground network makes accessing the rest of the c
ity effortless. For retail indulgence or an evening out, Westgate Shopping Centre and Stevenage Leisure Park are both close by, offering a range of shops, restaurants and bars as well as a new 75,000 sq.ft M&S store and local favourite The Chequers, a charming country pub a short drive from Aspects – ideal for a Sunday lunch or drinks with friends.
Each of the one and two bedroom apartments in Hamilton House at Aspects have been thoughtfully designed to combine style and elegance alongside practicality. Complete with Hill’s usual high specification, each home offers bright, airy and contemporary spaces, perfect for relaxing, working and entertaining. All homes enjoy private outdoor space in the form of a spacious balcony or terrace. Open plan layouts provide flexible living spaces for busy lifestyles; sophisticated kitchens feature a range of high-quality integrated appliances and a separate utility cupboard in the hallway stores a washer/dryer. Bathrooms and ensuites (in selected two bedroom apartments) have a luxurious hotel-style feel, creating the ideal sanctuary to escape to. Other features include underfloor heating throughout all apartments, lift access to all floors, cycle and bin storage and parking.
Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director, commented: “We are very pleased to be launching the next collection of homes at Aspects. Stevenage is a fantastic location for first time buyers wanting an exciting opportunity; with an extensive regeneration programme already underway, savvy purchasers are zoning in on the potential for future price growth. This latest collection of apartments for sale will occupy the new Hamilton House building. We also have a limited number of one bedroom apartments from our previous phase available with Help to Buy in Ashley House, ideal for those wanting to buy a new home before the application deadline on 31st October 2022. We strongly advise prospective purchasers to register their interest as soon as possible.”
