North London’s new manor

Great news for buyers looking for luxury in Greater London, whilst remaining less than 40 minutes from the centre of the city.

A bijou new development called Manor Wood Gate from award-winning developer Shanly Homes in Hadley Wood has just been launched. The collection of 17 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses are located within a new gated development off Coombehurst Close, a ten-minute walk from Cockfosters tube station.

The new-build site at Manor Wood Gate consists of: Livingstone House, a development of 9 one, two and three bed apartments and penthouses and Highstone House with a further 8 two and three bed apartments. With Highstone House still in the process of being built, the properties at Livingston House have now been launched, with prices ranging from £730,000 to £955,000.

The properties at Livingstone House have been designed to make the most of natural light; spacious, contemporary open-plan kitchen and living areas benefit from French doors which open out onto private terraces or balconies, while master bedrooms come with en-suite bathrooms and fitted wardrobes.

The homes have been kitted out with a stylish specification and underfloor heating throughout, with the kitchens featuring integrated Siemens appliances, under-cabinet LED lighting and clever storage solutions to maximise space. Bathrooms and en-suites feature white sanitaryware, chrome brassware and Minoli porcelain tiled flooring.

Residents of Livingstone House will have access to landscaped communal gardens, private parking and cycle storage. Lift services are also available to give easy access to all floors.

Martin Brown, sales manager at Shanly Homes, comments: “Manor Wood Gate is a very attractive investment for professionals who enjoy a suburban lifestyle but are a short hop on the tube away from central London. The open-plan design of the apartments will attract both professionals and downsizers who are looking for a contemporary new home within Greater London in a gated and secure location.”

On the doorstep of the development lies Trent Country Park, an English country house with more than 400 acres of woodland, grassland, lakes and ponds, which is where locals go to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Here you will find woodlands walks, mountain bike trails, a flat boulevard walk, an equestrian centre and Go Ape high ropes – one of Enfield’s most popular attractions.

Martin adds: “With Trent Country Park on the development’s doorstep, buyers will easily forget how close they are to the capital. An added benefit for commuters is that they can now benefit from a 24-hour network on the weekend thanks to the introduction of the night tube.”

Alongside the ten-minute walk to Cockfosters tube station, which will take you to Leicester Square in less than 40 minutes, the development is also extremely well served by road and air. The M25 can be accessed in five minutes, with the A1 and M1 easily reached. London City Airport is also a 42-minute drive or 1 hour 15 minutes on the tube.

For shopping, Cockfosters village offers a parade of local shops just 10 minutes away, including café’s, patisseries, jewellers and florists.  For further retail therapy, Brent Cross shopping centre is only a half an hour drive away, with over 120 stores to choose from.

Avid golfers will also be pleased to hear that there are five golf courses within a 3-mile radius of Manor Wood Gate, including Old Fort Manor Golf Club – designed by one of the greatest golf architects of all time, Harry Colt and Trent Park Gold Club, which is a 20-minute walk away.

James Luton, from selling agents Lanes New Homes, adds: “Manor Wood Gate really is a truly unique opportunity in this location and we are already experiencing a very high demand for these apartments.

“There are many prospective purchasers who have been waiting for this type of development in the Hadley Wood area for some time. Furthermore, with only 9 apartments in the building, residents of Livingstone House will be able to enjoy a real sense of privacy and security”.

The show apartment is open 7 days a week 10am – 5pm.  To find out more about our developments please visit or call 0208 370 3999.
