Right beside the fast train (17 mins!) to London, facing west to catch the afternoon and evening sun, this smart contemporary studio is an ideal base for busy young professionals, or a pied-a-terre for people who want a London base near the countryside, and in a town teaming with activity. You maybe thinking of moving to St Albans because of its convenience to transport links - M1 and M25 nearby making road trips a cinch, both Luton and Gatwick are served by single train, Heathrow and Stanstead are a short drive away. The thriving local blend of music, food, sports, history and the market could absorb you, as they absorb many, for a lifetime. Parks and country walks are all around, as well as a plethora of vibrant pubs and cafes. Ridgemont Plaza, built to a high standard within the last five years, is well placed to take advantage of all this, being not only near a train that can get you to St Pancras in 17 minutes (or West Hampstead in 14 minutes), but also just a short walk from the refurbished Art Deco cinema, the Odyssey, which a fare of main stream and repertory films await your delectation. Also the Alban way is just around the corner - a repurposed railway now beloved of dog-walkers, runners and cyclists. Several pubs nearby offer open mike nights and gigs, and every morning Charley offers very fine coffee outside the station, and every evening Johnny offers his delicious baked goods to warm you on the way home. The studio itself is spacious, finished to a fine standard, with a generous kitchen worktop, a good sized bathroom, ample storage and a pleasant view onto across the rooftops and trees. This is an obvious choice for many buyers: - it's a great first time buy: affordable, situated among some outstanding amenities and easily managed for anyone with a busy life-style who needs a simple, presentable space; - great as a pied-a-terre since it's a simple space and easy to maintain; and in addition ideal for short lets for when you're not there. - great investment for capital growth benefitting both from the effect of London, and strong local demand - great investment for cash flow, in demand for both long term lets and short lets This won't stay on the market for long, so contact us immediately on for more information.
