The Park is situated in a crescent just off Faircross Way and is considered as one of St. Albans' most prestigious roads, favoured for its tranquil location and proximity to local amenities and to The Wick, an area of woodland with a playing field and meadow areas. With its attractive streets, market place and precincts, St. Albans' historic city centre provides an appealing backdrop to a great range of speciality boutiques, independent retailers and major stores and to numerous bars, cafés, public houses and restaurants. St. Albans has a thriving cultural life, with regular concerts and theatre productions held in a variety of local venues, as well as a large number of sporting venues, including eponymous football, rugby and cricket teams and facilities for the keen amateur, including a community gym, a bowls and tennis club and a golf course. The city's proximity to the M1 and M25 motorways, as well as a train journey of less than 20 minutes into central London and direct links to Luton and Gatwick Airports, makes it a popular commuter area.

The property is served by a wide range of nearby state schooling rated Outstanding by Ofsted, including St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Primary School, Bernards Heath Infant and Nursery School, Verulam, Sandringham and Beaumont (rated Outstanding by Ofsted). There is also a good selection of independent schools including St. Albans High School for Girls, St. Albans, St. Columba's College and Aldwickbury.

The property is accessed via a block-paved carriage driveway, giving access to the integral garage and providing private parking for multiple vehicles with a central paved pedestrian path bordered by low-maintenance areas of level lawn. To the rear, the enclosed gardens are laid mainly to level lawn bordered by mature shrubs and feature a large raised paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, together with a topiary arch leading to a secluded paved seating area.
