Recently labelled as an ‘emerging powerhouse’ by Savills, the county of Hertfordshire has been dubbed the fastest growing region in the UK when it comes to house prices. With limited supply and extremely high demand, housing in the area is proving hard to come by, according to the national estate agent.*

Giving hopeful buyers the opportunity to purchase a home in Hertfordshire, Catalyst has just 5 houses remaining at Midsummer Vale, consisting of three- and four-bedroom homes. The overall development offers an exceptional collection of two-to-five-bedroom homes in the village of Walkern, near Stevenage.

Providing families with the opportunity to purchase a spacious home in the historic village, Midsummer Vale provides a mix of house styles to suit a range of buyers – from three-bedroom properties featuring stylish open plan living spaces, to four bedroom homes complete with two reception rooms, utility rooms, and double garages.

Helping families step onto the property ladder in this sought-after location, Catalyst is offering a stamp duty contribution of up to £10,000, paying the full amount for customers who reserve their home in April.

Midsummer Vale’s high quality homes have been designed with modern family living in mind. Spacious interiors feature premium touches including designer kitchen units, chrome finishing, and underfloor heating. Outside, landscaped front gardens and a dedicated patio area to the rear garden are included as standard. Additional features in the largest homes include walk-in dressing areas to the main bedroom, kitchen islands and studies – providing the space and flexibility families need.

The village of Walkern dates back to the Saxon period and is characterised by its rich history. Combining historic buildings, which include the 11th century St Mary’s Church and medieval Bridgefoot Farm, with modern amenities such as the Walkern Sports and Community Centre, beauty salon, and a range of beloved pubs and restaurants, Walkern offers the desirable lifestyle often associated with village living.

The local area offers school options for a range of ages – Walkern Primary school is just a five minute walk from the development, while for older children, secondary schools the Nobel School and Marriotts School are both less than a 10 minute drive away.

For residents needing to commute, Stevenage train station is a short 10-minute drive away – with train journeys to London Kings Cross taking 24 minutes and London Bridge taking 42 minutes. For easy road journeys, the nearby A602 and A10 connect to the M1.

The final three bedroom home at Midsummer Vale is priced at £495,000. Remaining four bedroom homes start from £690,000.
