Local Information

The site is located in the historic city of St Albans in Hertfordshire which lies approximately 19 miles north of London. The city dates back to the Iron Age and in Roman Britain was the second largest city after Londinium. The city has a number of important historic sites and buildings including St Albans Abbey and the Roman remains of Verulamium.

The site lies to the west of Sopwell House, an historic white stucco Georgian country house, now a luxury 128 bedroom hotel, country club & spa.

The building itself is located in the St Julian's area of St Albans, in the post-war built Cottonmill Estate. Eywood House has been redeveloped on the site of an old 1970's sheltered housing scheme called Betty Entwistle House on Holyrood Crescent.

Shared Ownership for the over 55's - How does it work?

Whether you are retired, planning for your future or downsizing, where you live and quality of life is important. Eywood House provides you with the privacy of your own apartment but with the sense of community.

You buy a share in your home (50% or 75%) with the remaining share owned by the Housing Provider. There is no rent to pay on a 75% purchase. Monthly Service Charge - £295.14

*Price shown is for a 75% share.*

In the future, you can simply sell your share for its value at the time of sale (current market valuation required) or purchase further shares in your home (up to 75%).

Our Opening Times

All viewings are currently by appointment only. Our specialist Retirement Living Sales Advisor is available to show you around the development, Wednesday - Saturday, 11am - 3pm.
