New vision for Old Hatfield housing development

AN old garage block in a historic part of Times Territory has been transformed into a new housing development.

Dunham Mews is the name of the new collection of townhouse-style homes located off Park Street, in Old Hatfield, situated next to the viaduct and overlooked by Hatfield House.

The development is the first phase of a joint venture between the Gascoyne Cecil Estates, which manages Hatfield House, and local developers Jarvis Homes.

It consists of eight two-bedroom mews style homes and one maisonette, with associated parking.

It is hoped that next year, a further six town houses and two small office buildings will be added along the south side of the viaduct, creating a small street.
