Forge Lane is located in the delightful conservation area of Welwyn Village. The area of the new build has a strong heritage, nestled behind historic Ivy Cottage.
Ivy Cottage has a rich past; built in the 17th Century it was formerly the village school. The cottage was visited by Vincent Van Gogh, as his sister once taught there. The cottage is not only a beautiful part of Welwyn’s history but also a Grade II Listed Building.
A cottage was built on the land behind Ivy Cottage, which opens onto Forge Lane -an old road branching from Codicote Road that used to lead to a forge and stables.
Dealing with Netherdown is always a pleasure. The company lives up to its well-earned excellent reputation; the properties they build being of the highest specification, with designs that are very much in keeping with their surroundings. I find the company extremely professional and open in its dealings, as well as being generous and supportive to projects within the local community. I cannot recommend them too highly.Project Manager and Vice Chair, Welwyn Planning & Amenity Group.
We are happy with the distinctive architectural design and quality build and appreciate that the company has a good name. Our friends and visitors comment favourably on the appearance of the house. The sliding doors to the kitchen and lounge receive positive plaudits along with the kitchen, bathrooms and the under-floor heating. We are pleased with our purchase.Mr Bowrey- New Home Owner
Here at European Mission Fellowship we decided to sell our Grade II* listed building. After considering approaches from a range of potential buyers we opted for Netherdown. From the original vision and approach through to the conclusion of the sale we were very impressed with Netherdown. They were wise in their approach, thorough in their preparation and always professional and helpful to deal with. We could wholeheartedly recommend them.Mr Bowers – Mission Director and Former Owner of Guessens
We sold the top part of our garden to Netherdown and they built a pair of semi-detached units on that area, to their usual high standard. We found Netherdown and their site managers to be approachable, friendly and efficient, open to discussion about changes and making valuable suggestions. Their subcontractors, brickie’s, ground-work men, plumbers, roofers and electricians were all friendly and good at their job. We are happy to recommend them.Mr and Mrs Skidmore – Former Land Owners
Gordon and his team are very professional and straight-forward to work with. We are very glad that Guessens, is now in the hands of such a capable team, who will give it a new lease of life, whilst retaining its historic charm.Mr Grimwade – Former Resident at Guessens
