The boundary lines between lively inner and leafy outer London are now starting to blur, as many new would-be buyers look to push into areas just beyond the North and South Circular roads, where new homes can be purchased at prices low enough to attract people who want to be within a 30-minute commute of the City.
The “Hot Spot” of this recent trend is unquestionably well-connected and youthful Enfield!
The borough of Enfield, served by numerous Tube stations, London over ground stations and National rail stations (of which Enfield Lock will soon be Crossrail ready), is well-connected to both road and motorway networks, suiting commuters making inwards and outward journeys.
The towns within Enfield offer a plethora of amenities, from cinemas, health clubs, shops, bars and restaurants, whilst things change dramatically the further north you go, becoming greener and more prosperous, with crisp and clean tree-lined streets, close to golf courses, riding schools and country parks.
Enfield is also family friendly and can boast several local activities, such as zip wiring at Go Ape, being creative at Going Pottery & picking fresh summer strawberry’s at Parkside farm.
Schools are also well represented, with Highlands School, Enfield County School for Girls and Enfield Grammar School being among the most sought after.
Private schools also have a wide choice available, with Grange Park Preparatory School, Keble School, Palmers Green High School and Vita et Pax Preparatory School being highly desirable.
Enfield is enormously varied in terms of its wealth, housing, ethnicity, education and culture.
This diversity is now being catered for more than ever, with the importance of good architectural design being recognized by developers.
As such a wealth of property opportunities to suit all budgets are now available and many of these come with financial support options such as the governments Help to Buy scheme, offering a 40% equity loan, subject to t&c’s.
