For buyers seeking their perfect new home, Aldenham’s most exclusive new development has just scooped two property awards.  The Ridings, in sought-after hamlet, Patchetts Green, by leading developers Heronslea Group, has been crowned Best Development in Hertfordshire at the UK Property Awards and Development of the Year (South) at The Premier Guarantee Awards.

Beating off stiff competition from developments around the UK, these award-winning homes offer idyllic country living surrounded by nature, yet close to local amenities, transport links and within school catchment areas.

Proving to be an attraction for purchasers, the development is situated in the heart of the pretty, secluded hamlet, Patchetts Green, close Radlett and Bushey town centres.  Popular with families, professionals and downsizers alike, The Ridings is perfect for those seeking village life, set in ten acres surrounded by countryside and woodland.   

Jason Rishover, CEO of Heronslea Groups comments: “We are delighted to have won these prestigious awards, that recognise high quality construction. We have worked hard to build a reputation for delivering homes of the highest quality and finest design and we are really proud of the homes we have created at The Ridings, where residents can get the feel of being close to nature, while enjoying life in a luxurious new home.”  

Providing modern family living at its best, buyers can choose from a range of different house types and sizes. Beautifully designed, each home has its own charm and character, benefiting from the highest specification that has become synonymous with the award winning Heronslea brand.

Internally homes benefit from bespoke interior design finished with a contemporary and stylish decor. Layouts are perfect for modern living and provide spacious accommodation in a choice of layouts. Many homes feature open plan kitchen/dining areas opening onto the rear garden, creating a wonderful heart to the home, while generous lounges provide the perfect entertaining space. Some benefit from a third floor with extra bedrooms and flexible spaces for games rooms or studies.

Only the very best fixtures and fittings have been selected for The Ridings, which offers the highest specification throughout, from the premium hardwood flooring with underfloor heating to the beautiful walnut doors, LED lighting and hallway cornicing.

The contemporary designer kitchens feature soft-closing doors and draws, composite stone worktops, contemporary glass splashbacks, chrome hot tap system for instant boiling water, stainless steel sink with chrome pull out spray tap and come complete with Siemens built-in appliances. The elegant bathrooms and en-suites have been designed to offer a sanctuary within the homes and feature designer wall hung sanitary ware and brassware from Hansgrohe, with luxurious bathing and showering options.

Aldenham is a highly desirable place to live and bring up a family. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book and is one of Hertsmere’s 14 conservation areas. The area benefits from a number of leading schools including the prestigious Haberdashers’ Aske’s, voted Independent School of the Year 2017 in the Sunday Times and Aldenham School, both providing a first-class education.

Opposite The Ridings is the quaint village pub ‘The 3 Compasses’ while Aldenham Golf Club with its two courses and Aldenham Country Park and its 100 acres are close by. Radlett and Bushey town centres are just two miles away, both with train stations providing services to London and Watford, and high streets filled with restaurants and shops. As well as excellent rail connections the development is close to both the M1 and M25 and just 23 minutes to Luton International Airport.
