3 London Road, Markyate, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL3 8JL


The proposed scheme redevelops Marvin’s Magic to create a 73-bed care home which is highly reflective of the scale and aesthetic of Markyate. The 3-storey home embeds itself into the surrounding area, mirroring the height of neighbouring developments and replicating materiality.


Creating a modern, yet functional, place to live, the home addresses the desperate demand for care facilities within the area.

The scheme proposes 73 en-suite bedrooms surrounded by landscaped gardens, with 33 carparking spaces to the front of the as well as refuse and recycling facilities.


Closely located to the culverted River Ver, the proposal largely tackles and overcomes any issue relating to flooding in the area.
