The Laundry Works, the latest development from Weston Homes, is an exciting new development in the vibrant town of Watford, just 16 minutes by train from the city.

House hunters looking to move just outside of London, but still have close commuter links, can enjoy living in a new residential neighbourhood within an area noted for its green spaces and decidedly village-like feel.

The Laundry Works offers luxurious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and penthouses. Created on the site of the old Watford Laundry Factory that laundered for London’s 5-star hotels, The Old Bailey and Harrow School across its 105-year history, The Laundry Works features eight architecturally distinctive apartment buildings set within a wide tree-lined boulevard with attractive landscaped podium gardens throughout.

What about the local area?

Surrounded by landscaped grounds The Laundry Works has a close community village feel, despite being just a 10-minute drive to Watford city centre.

In close proximity to the nearest train station, commuters are in easy access to London, whether that's from Watford Junction station in the town centre or via Watford's Metropolitan Line station that is a 15-minute walk away.

If you are wanting to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city then you don't have to look far with your own landscaped podium gardens throughout the development. It's also the perfect place to get acquainted with your new neighbours.

For even more greenery the nearby Cassiobury Park and the 165 acres of historic woodland at Whippendell Wood boast a number of nature walks as well as a number of outdoor events.

Watford itself also has plenty to offer, whether you are after a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars or are wanting to catch a Watford FC game at Vicarage Road.

The town is also home to the ever-popular Watford Colosseum which has seen the likes of Elton John, Oasis and One Direction grace the stage.
