At the other end of Watford High Street to our existing offering is The Old Bank. The building’s 1920’s Portland Stone and classical frontage sets this building apart from the High Street norm. This Grade 2 listed building is set in the Civic Core Conservation area just across the road from Watford’s centre of government. Whilst fronting the pedestrianised section of the High Street, off street car parking is close at hand as are a post office, many restaurants and bars and the latest extension to the Intu centre including a multiplex cinema.
And yet, when you sit down at your desk in your centrally heated suite with its the secondary glazing you will be lulled into not believing that the modern world is so close.
An eight month extensive fit out has enabled us to preserve the building’s 1920’s character whilst inputting the technology required for the 2020s. When we ripped out the existing carpeting we discovered and have preserved the original beautiful block wood flooring. This building is a joy to behold both inside and out.
A few minutes’ drive will take you to the M1 with its access to Central London, the North and M25. Luton, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports are easily accessible. If you want to leave the car behind take a short stroll to either of the nearby Stations to take you on the London Underground or main line train to Central London or in the other direction to the Midlands and the North. Bus routes also proliferate in the area and off street car parking is close by.
