Enfield Town branch

23 - 25 Silver Street, Enfield, Middlesex EN1 3EF


Why move to Enfield Town?

Just 9 miles north of central London, this friendly area offers a rich history, great restaurants, plenty of shops and parks and open spaces.

Feeling in places more like a market town than a London suburb, Enfield has an attractive cobbled square and ancient parish church.  However, connections to London are good and you can be in the heart of the action within half an hour.

If you are looking for an estate agent in Enfield Town, please pop into our office on Silver Street.  We are both a lettings agent and sales agent for the Enfield Town area, and will be happy to help you.  Our Enfield Town branch covers the area west to Oakwood and Cockfosters, and south to Bush Hiull Park, Palmers Green and Southgate.

 

A short history

Enfield became an important medieval centre in 1303, having been given a market charter by Edward I, but it wasn’t until the arrival of the railway in 1840 that Enfield became a suburb of London.  Growth in the early 20th Century was so rapid that Green Belt laws were imposed after World War Two to protect the neighbouring countryside.

Just north of Enfield Town is Forty Hall, one of England's finest historic houses.  Set in its own estate, with gardens, lakes, lawns, and meadows, Forty Hall was built by former Lord Mayor of London, Sir Nicholas Rainton in 1632.  The Hall has been changed and reworked by a number of owners, however many architectural features remain from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Former residents of the Enfield area include Sir John Betjeman, Thomas Hardy and John Keats.  The town also has a rich industrial past, as the birthplace of the Lee-Enfield rifle, solid-state circuitry colour television, the first mass-produced Dishwasher and the first Cash Machine (ATM) at Barclays Bank in June 1967.

 

Property

There’s a wide choice of property in Enfield Town, ranging from modern, purpose-built blocks to Victorian terraces and large Edwardian properties.

The Willow Estate lies in the area between Southbury Road and Carterhatch Lane.  Built in the 1930's, the area is popular with families looking for semi-detached properties with decent sized gardens and off-street parking.

If you are interested in putting your house on the market, our Sales Agents will be pleased to arrange a home valuation.  Those looking to purchase property in Enfield Town can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties.  Alternatively, if you are a Landlord considering letting your property, or you are looking to rent within the Enfield Town area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

Transport links

Enfield boasts great transport connections into Central London, making it an obvious choice for commuters.  There are four Piccadilly Line stations in the borough of Enfield – Arnos Grove, Southgate, Oakwood and Cockfosters – which will take you straight to Leicester Square in just over 30 minutes.

London Overground and National Rail Great Northern services also run within the borough, with stations including Crews Hill, Gordon Hill, Enfield Chase, Grange Park, Winchmore Hill and Palmers Green.  Enfield Town train station has frequent direct trains to Liverpool Street which also take just half an hour.

There is easy access from within the borough to both the A10 and M25.

 

Shopping, eating and drinking

The main retail centre in Enfield Town is the Palace Shopping Centre, with all the major chains including M&S and Waitrose.  There’s also no shortage of independent stores, including bakeries and delis, plus a twice-weekly market.

You have a mouth-watering choice when deciding where to eat out in Enfield Town.  Pretty much every national cuisine is represented in the borough.  In addition to the usual coffee chains, you’ll find many interesting cafes in which to have a drink or a bite to eat.  If you’re looking for some pub grub, or a pint, check out The Cricketers, The Jolly Farmers or The Robin Hood, with great views of the countryside.

For a more hands-on experience, why not visit the Parkside Farm Shop and ‘pick your own’ farm, specialising in high-quality meat, vegetables, cakes and groceries.  All food is sourced locally.

 

Things to do

If you like to explore the great outdoors, you have many options, such as Grovelands Park, with a lake, playground and café.  A walk along the River Lea towpath is also a popular option.

Trent Park Country Park, on the western outskirts of Enfield, offers ancient woodlands almost unchanged from the days when Henry VIII used the land for the royal deer hunt.  Nowadays, locals use the large open spaces for walking, jogging, cycling, horse riding, golfing or simply relaxing in serene and picturesque surroundings.

There are many other options for keeping fit within the area.  In addition to leisure centres and gyms, there are sporting venues, such as clay shooting at the Rectory Farm Shooting Ground, tennis, golf and bowls.

Culture vultures should take a look at the perfomances offered by the Dugdale Theatre, plus their museum and gallery.  There’s also a large Cineworld IMAX for catching up on the latest film releases.

An interesting attraction is the Whitewebbs Museum of Transport, with old cars and motorcycles on display. Plus don’t miss visiting Forty Hall manor house, surrounded by ancient royal parkland. Dating back to the 1620s, Forty Hall is now a museum of life in the 17th Century, and frequently hosts concerts and workshops.

North of Forty Hall is Capel Manor Gardens, a beautiful estate first established in the late 13th century surrounding a Georgian Manor House.  With Chelsea Flower Show medal winning gardens and a College for land-based studies, there is plenty of inspiration on offer for the amateur gardener.

I registered with Kings as I was looking to buy last year. I was explicit in my choice of the post code and the type of house that I would be interested. Initially I was sent relevant adverts but over time, the houses were not relevant or interested to me. I moved on to other agents.

Recently I reconnected with Kings and was introduced to Richard whom I have found to be brilliant. He is knowledgeable, efficient, quick and offers scope that illuminated my thinking. His negotiation skills is ace - got the offer in the bag!

An excellent service!

Richard was very knowledgeable and efficient, he made a very difficult and stressful process as straightforward as he possibly could. What we really appreciated was that he went over and above, always at the end of the phone to answer questions and relieve our anxieties. The service provided was excellent, we would definitely use him again ourselves and would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends.

Mrs Jacqueline Heale

Seller

I was originally selling through another agency who were unsuccessful in selling my property. I then instructed Kings to sell the property and they secured me a buyer in very good time.
James and his team have been fantastic throughout, dealing with any enquiries or delays quickly and ensuring the process was as smooth as possible. Jay has also been incredibly helpful with additional aspects of the sale following exchange and completion. The Enfield Town team are a credit to the company.
