Welcome Home To Harpenden With New Fairview Development

Home is where the heart is. Now, thanks to the new Welcombe House collection from Fairview, buyers can do more than lust after their dream home, they can fall in love with their ideal abode. By Stephen Penn

Manicured lawns and a wealth of architectural history - perfectly partnered with easy access to London - makes for a truly idyllic home life. With parks and commons in abundance, as well as a vibrant shopping scene on the doorstep, it’s perhaps no surprise that Harpenden is the UK’s top spot for commuter living.

Taking full advantage of this blissful and prosperous town is Fairview New Homes, which is launching a collection of bespoke luxury residences within a converted 18th century building. The Welcombe House collection comprises new-build houses and apartments of distinction within the stunning Grade II listed Welcombe building.

While little is known about the origins of Welcombe – which for decades stood as Harpenden House Hotel – its name is a staple in the history of the affluent town and Fairview’s development continues the Welcombe name, first given to the listed building in the 1870s.

Set within mature landscaped gardens, the historic building has been carefully remodelled and contains five spacious apartments – each with bespoke floorplans. Fairview is also building 19 apartments and 13 houses beside the listed building, all designed with characterful front elevations to remain in keeping with the surroundings.

The new housing hub also benefits from an incredible location for commuters, just a 7-minute walk from Harpenden railway station, where Thameslink trains run to London St Pancras in less than 30 minutes.

“With good rail links, several outstanding schools and copious areas of green space, Harpenden is one of the most desirable Home Counties towns for good reason,” says Jeremy Gee, Main Board Director for Fairview. “With the Grade II listed Welcombe building as its centrepiece, the Welcombe House collection will be a new and unique addition to the heart of this charming Hertfordshire town.

“There will only be 37 homes available within the Welcombe House collection, so I’d encourage home-hunters to enquire sooner rather than later about this exceptional range of properties.”
