Historic Welwyn Landmark Given New Lease Of Life By Linden Homes
04 Apr 2018

At the heart of Linden Homes’, stunning Wilshere Park development sits The Frythe building, a country house dating back to 1846 which has been sympathetically restored to offer twelve luxurious apartments designed to honour the wonderful extensive history of the building.

The word Frythe derives from the Old English word meaning ‘wooded country’, which perfectly describes the new development which is surrounded by plentiful untouched woodland. The Frythe boasts a colourful history, with records of the building dating back as far as 1260. The ‘Gothic Revival’ mansion was built in 1846 and although it was originally a home for the Wilshere family, it has also been a hotel and World War II offices.

The twelve apartments are a mix of two and three-bedroom properties and boast stunning period features, high ceilings and outside terrace space. Within each apartment you will find elegant living rooms and beautiful bedrooms, stylish kitchens and luxurious bathrooms. Add to this an abundance of light through grand windows, state of the art facilities and high-quality fittings and you have a truly enviable place to live within a secure new community.

Amie-Louise Emery, Senior Sales Manager at Linden Homes Chiltern said; “It has been an honour to be able to restore this wonderful part of British history and to enable it to continue to be lived in and enjoyed for many more years to come.

“The apartments need to be seen first-hand to appreciate the stunning building’s exterior and carefully restored interior. We’d encourage interested house hunters to get in touch quickly as we have had a lot of interest in the apartments and have already taken reservations since the launch of the show apartment just last month. It’s a unique opportunity to own an absolutely fantastic piece of history”.

The development is situated close to the quaint village of Welwyn, settled in the heart of Hertfordshire. The village has plenty to offer with shops, pharmacy, doctors surgery and post office for everyday amenities. There’s also plenty to see and explore with boutique shops, cafes and a beautiful church just a few miles away.

Wilshere Park has been extremely popular with house hunters offering a collection of homes perfect for young professionals and downsizers as well as working families, with excellent schools nearby and convenient road and rail connections. Brunswick House Apartments which are now launched offer 1 & 2 bedroom apartments.
