Many of our clients who have decided on living in Hertfordshire will ask us to include a St Albans home search within their requirements. The city offers the best of all worlds to anyone making a move out of London, looking for their dream country property or considering building an investment portfolio.
The town of St Albans has ancient roots and first came to prominence in the Roman age. Since the Second World war the town has grown enoumously in size which is largely due to its position as a commuter base for those wanting to work in London as the rapid service reaches St Pancras in under twenty minutes.
The area offers residents a good range of amenities and access to cultural events, many of which focus around the famous cathedral which has been around since Norman times.
Schooling is, as always, a big draw to the area. There is a broad choice of options for anyone with children. There are a good choice of state funded schools including Sandringham School, St Albans Girls School and Veralum School as well as several independent schools such as St Albans School, St Albans School for Girls or St Columbas College. Whetever your educational requirements it is safe to say that there will be a school within your St Albans home search to suit you.
For those happy to consider a broader geographical area in their St Albans home search there is also the possibility of including similar neighbouring areas such as Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted or Harpenden. Others will also request a more rural St Albans home search which may include villages such as Wheathampstead or Kings Langley.How can we assist you?
