We've taken an exclusive tour of the new 10-home development currently being built on the former Museum of St Albans site.
Oak Tree Gardens on Hatfield Road is a collection of three and four-bed freehold houses, three of which are already under offer.
Named after the oak tree that stands to the rear of the development, prices for the seven available homes range from £850,000 for a three bedroom property to £1,150,000 for a four-bed.
The two homes at the front of the development share the museum’s original frontage, which dates from the 1890s.
As the development has helped to fund the new Museum and Gallery on St Peter’s Street, every purchaser will have the chance to add their name to the new museum’s honours board to mark their contribution to the project.
All of the properties, built by Morgan Sindall, will have either a garden or a terrace as well as an allocated parking space.
Features include fully fitted Paula Rosa kitchens with Quartz worktops, integrated appliances, oak staircases, Roca sanitaryware and fitted wardrobes to the master bedrooms.
Christina Bearne, of selling agents Rumball Sedgwick, says the houses have appealed to a mix of buyers, including families and downsizers, some of whom are local while others are based in London.
Things are moving quickly at the site: within the next couple of weeks all of the windows will be in and the scaffolding will be down. The first residents are due to have moved in by the end of November.
