Royal Connaught Park is a Grade II listed complex and benefits from a leisure centre with heated swimming pool, steam room, sauna, luxury changing rooms and a full equipped gym. There are also tennis courts. Further benefits include a concierge service and guest parking. Fast transport links are only a few minutes away from the development and a courtesy bus service to Bushey mainline station is available to residents for the morning and evening commute. During the day this bus runs a service to Watford town centre.
The heritage and history behind the development:
The original buildings were designed by the Victorian architects Gordon, Lowther and Gunton and the foundation stone was laid by Queen Victoria’s son, the Duke of Connaught. Approached through impressive entrance gates, a historic clock tower sits within the signature building, JFK House - named as a tribute to the Kennedy family who once resided nearby during World War II. This is probably the most exclusive development that the area provides, situated within mature landscaped parkland and manicured grounds of 100 acres.
