A spotlight on The Arches

At Berkeley Group, we're proud of the luxurious, well-located and truly special homes we provide to potential homeowners of all ages and backgrounds. This month, we're heading to our development The Arches to discover more about the tasteful apartments that make up this wonderful property opportunity.

Where is the Arches?

Found in the trendy town of Watford, the Arches is located in the historic parish of Bushey, first mentioned in the Domesday Book as far back as 1086. Its superb location leaves it in walking distance of the Bushey railways station with its links to the centre of Watford and further afield into London, with just a 19 minute journey to London Euston - ideal for commuters looking for to combine a city career with a slower pace of life.

Key features of the Arches

The Arches was designed with the modern homeowner in mind, with each apartment boasting elegant interiors, state-of-the-art fittings and spacious living areas. With carefully managed and landscaped grounds, all interconnected with WiFi, this development is trendy and chic in all the right ways, with special features that set it apart from the rest of the property market.

Balconies to each apartment

Each of the apartments in the Arches feature a balcony or terrace for those extra special breaths of fresh air once you wake up, before you go to bed and the rest of the day in between. With tranquil views across the manicured gardens, these balconies give you and your family the chance to enjoy the great outdoors without even leaving your apartment. Each balcony is spacious enough for more than one person, meaning that you'll have space to host your dinner parties both inside and out (in a safe manner of course!).

Luxurious landscaped green space

The Arches is home to two beautiful podium gardens which are chock full of flowers to add a spark of colour to your life all year round. Carefully planted trees provide some shade for long summer days while leaving enough space for sunbathers to catch their rays. As a resident, you'll get exclusive access to these gardens which also come with WiFi for you to catch up on a days work in the garden or stream your favourite movie while you're out and about. The communal space is also great for meeting up with your neighbours and friends for a real community feel.
