"This will be a simply superb place to return home to.”
The luxury apartment at Wilshire Park has a fascinating history reaching back through the centuries and today makes a stylish and unique home, within an exceptional setting, perfect to relax and unwind.
The appealing, two-bedroom apartment is set within a gorgeous, Gothic Revival building at leafy Wilshire Park, a sophisticated country estate in sought-after Welwyn village. “This is an exceptional place to live for so many reasons,” he says. “The Frythe itself is a handsome building that still retains many of its striking Victorian features. It has been beautifully restored and creatively converted into 12 luxury apartments that offer contemporary levels of comfort as well as original character.” With a name deriving from the old English words for “wooded country,” the impressive, red-brick building, which has castellations and a grand, portico entrance, has a long and interesting history. A building of significance has stood on the site from 1260, with the current property dating back to 1846. “This was a manor house that was home to the Wilshire family for any years,” he continues. “In its colourful past it has also been a hotel and – during the second world war – secret military offices, where James Bond-style gadgets were developed!”
The appealing apartment could suit a variety of new owners, from a small family to a couple seeking to downsize or someone with a home abroad who is eager to establish a British pied-à-terre. “It could be ideal for someone who is retiring or for a professional couple,” he suggests. “It could be a great lock-up-and-leave property and yet it could also suit someone who enjoys entertaining and welcoming friends and family members to stay. There are all sorts of possibilities here.”
BEST OF EVERTHING
Nestled in verdant countryside, featuring ancient woodlands and tranquil lakes, this corner of England is known for its quiet beauty, as well as its convenience. It is well located for anyone who enjoys country walks and getting out and about in beautiful, natural surroundings, yet it is also within easy reach of major transport links, including motorways and major roads and stations with trains into London. “Wilshire Park is within walking distance of Welwyn village, with its supermarket, shops and coffee shops,” he says. “Then, of course, Welwyn Garden City has a much wider selection of amenities.” He adds: “This apartment has a great deal to offer, including excellent living space and an attractive setting at Wilshire Park. It will be a magnificent home to its next owners.”
SETTING THE SCENE
Set within the landscaped grounds of Wilshire Park, the apartment benefits from a private balcony with pleasant views out over the grounds. There is also a private garage with the property and communal visitors’ parking for the Frythe.
“In the spring and summer, the new owners will be able to throw open the French windows on to the balcony to let a cool breeze in or to settle outside with a sundowner.”
