Location of this St Albans Property

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 Julians 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.

  • You are eligible if you have a household income that is less than £80,000 per year (in London it is less than £90,000).
