With the famous Elstree Studio – home to national hits like Star Wars and Strictly Come Dancing – just recently celebrating its 90th anniversary, the spotlight is once again on the historic town of Borehamwood as Bellway Homes launches its new Hertsmere Mews development.
Available in a variety of styles to suit all tastes, the construction of 152 one and two-bedroom apartments, as well as 149 three and four-bedroom houses offer modern living 28% below the average London price according to Foxtons Estate Agency. The first phase of homes at Hertsmere Mews in Hertfordshire will be released in November, when buyers will have the opportunity to choose from variety of properties off-plan.
All the homes have contemporary design features including open-plan living spaces to apartments, en-suite shower rooms and integrated kitchen appliances. Apartments come with allocated parking spaces and either a balcony or terrace, while those who buy houses can enjoy their own private garden and off-road parking or a garage. The development will also include landscaped communal gardens that all residents will benefit from. These modern amenities in combination with the development’s convenient location – just a short walk from Borehamwood’s town centre and only 30 minutes by rail from London St Pancras – mean the homes are likely to be popular among families and commuters alike.
Kevin Bowles, Sales Manager for Bellway Homes North London, comments, “We are excited to be launching our homes in Borehamwood.

We want to put the spotlight back on this area and would urge anyone interested in the development to register their interest now.”
