Past Development: Balls Park, Hertford
 
Balls Park, Hertford
  • Past Development

INTRODUCTION

Set among 63 acres of picturesque parkland, the Grade I Listed Balls Park Mansion House and surrounding buildings have been converted in to a collection of stunning apartments & delightful detached homes.

Having served as an education establishment for many years the beautiful buildings were falling into disrepair and became unsustainable to maintain. In 2001 City & Country purchased the estate and began the careful and expert work to restore all the historical buildings to their former 1638 glory.

Working with the original period features each home was designed to ensure none of the historic beauty was lost in the conversion process. Whilst externally the buildings were brought back to life with stonework cleaned, replaced where necessary and sash cord windows restored. Also communal areas such as the main Vestibule were kept for public use for all residence to enjoy.

Balls Park is a testament to the expert work City & Country undertakes, using the best craftsmanship to ensure the buildings survival for years to come.
