Crest Nicholson has announced the launch of a brand new development in the historical market town of Hitchin. Built on the site of the former Hertfordshire Arts College, this unique development consists of 75 contemporary apartments and 10 spacious family homes centred around a beautifully landscaped courtyard.



This stylish collection of modern homes boasts plenty of character and is conveniently located just over a mile from Hitchin town centre. The interiors at Artworks will be finished to the highest standard, homes are designed with a large open-plan layout to allow for plenty of space for entertaining guests. The contemporary kitchens come with modern, A-Rated appliances, and the homes will be fitted with low energy lighting throughout, keeping utility bills to a minimum. 



Residents at Artworks will benefit from an expanse of countryside to explore on their doorstep, such as a stroll along the picturesque River Hiz, or a wander through the chalk grasslands at Pegsdon Hills. Furthermore, the town of Hitchin itself has plenty to offer residents, with the Market Theatre, a weekly farmer’s market, and a selection of cosy local pubs. Hitchin was recently voted ninth happiest place to live in the UK in a poll by Rightmove, which demonstrates the popularity of the town by its residents.



The development is within easy reach of Hitchin train station, which offers express trains into London’s Kings Cross station in just over 30 minutes, making commuting to the capital an easy option for residents. In addition, both the A1(M) and the M1 are easily accessible, and London Luton Airport is less than 10 miles away for those looking to go further afield.



David Hnyda, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicolson’s Chiltern division, said: “We’re very excited to announce the launch of Artworks, a fantastic development for both first time buyers and families looking for more space and a balanced lifestyle close to London. Its enviable location makes it the perfect setting for those commuting to London, Cambridge or Stevenage. Hitchin is a beautiful area, rich in history, and we expect to see homes here sell fast.’



Prices at Artworks start from £230,000. The Sales and Marketing suite will be open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
