Why move to Cheshunt?

Cheshunt is a town in the Borough of Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, with a population of around 52,000.  Just 13 miles from Charing Cross, Cheshunt is far enough from the city to have a rural, leafy feel, whilst being close enough to London for an easy commute.

The town is a great mix of traditional and modern life, with fantastic outdoor space, plenty of shops and restaurants and the latest sporting facilities.

If you are looking for an estate agent in Cheshunt, please pop into our office on Lynton Parade.  We are both a lettings agent and sales agent for the Cheshunt area, and will be happy to help you.

 

A short history

Cheshunt was already well established by the time it appeared in the Doomsday book of 1086, with settlements dating back to the Roman occupation.  The town name comes from the Old English name for the area, Cestrehunt, which probably refers to a "castle, erected by the Romans", as Cheshunt was a settlement on Ermine Street, the main Roman road leading north from London.

The town has a regal past, with both Elizabeth I and James I living at the royal palace of Theobalds House.  The royal palace is no longer standing, although you can still visit the gardens at Cedars Park.

In 1825, Cheshunt also boasted the first passenger-carrying railway line to be built in Hertfordshire in the Cheshunt Railway, a horse-drawn line running from the town's High Street to the River Lea near the present-day Cheshunt railway station.

Lotus Cars and Debenhams were founded in Cheshunt, and the headquarters of Tesco were located here until 2016.

 

Property

A conservation area protects the historic parts of Cheshunt, including the buildings of Dewhurst Charity School (1640) and the nearby houses in Churchgate.

Elsewhere, there is an eclectic mix of property, with plenty of choice for families, professional couples and retirees.  From new build flats, through to conventional terraced houses, the town centre offers good value options.  Further out, you’ll find barn conversions and larger detached houses with views of the countryside.

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 Cheshunt 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 Cheshunt area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

Transport links

Cheshunt railway station is in London Oyster Card Zone 8, with trains running to Liverpool Street and Stratford in around 20 minutes, and connections to Tottenham Hale via the Victoria line and to the Piccadilly line.  Trains also serve Broxbourne, Hertford East, Stansted Airport and Cambridge. Other nearby stations include Waltham Cross, Theobalds Grove, Enfield Lock and Cuffley.  Oakwood and Cockfosters tube stations, on the Piccadilly line, are located further afield.

If approved, the town could also be part of London’s Crossrail 2.

The A10 and M25 provide easy access to Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and beyond.

 

Shopping, eating and drinking

At the town's heart is the iconic Old Pond, surrounded by shops, restaurants and pubs.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat out, as the town has a great selection of independent restaurants.  We like Sub Xpress for freshly-made pizzas, Fishy Delishy for sitting in or take away, Hunkar Sofrasi - a new Turkish restaurant at The Old Pond - or try Mahek for an Indian feast.

Shopaholics are also well served by the Brookfield Centre, offering the largest Tesco and M&S.  The adjacent Brookfield Retail Park is home to stores including Boots, Next, Argos and New Look.

 

Things to do

Cheshunt offers unbeatable options for enjoying the great outdoors.  Walk for miles in Lee Valley Park, Greater London’s largest park at four times bigger than Richmond Park, easily accessed at many points, including near the railway station at Windmill Lane. Cedars Park is also a great place to spend time as a family, with a lake, turf play maze, bocce court, pets corner, flint arch and historic walls, tea room and arts centre.  If cycling is your passion, the Sustrans National Cycle Route 1 passes through the town, en route from Dover to Shetland.

Cheshunt has its own football club, Cheshunt F.C, plus long-established rugby and cricket clubs and a publically owned 18-hole golf course.  Water sports enthusiasts are also catered for, in the venue where the London Olympics took place, with white water rafting, kayaking and canoeing amongst the sports on offer.

The Laura Trott Leisure Centre, named in honour of the four-time Olympic Gold Medalist cyclist who grew up in Cheshunt, offers a wide range of facilities including a floodlit 5-a-side football pitch, a multi-purpose sports hall, a swimming pool and a crèche.

The town's biggest football club, Cheshunt FC, is also the home of Tottenham Hotspur Ladies.

Sold, finally!

Having had my property on the market for over nine months with two other agents, with very few viewings and no second viewings, Kings sold my property within two weeks of it being on their books. They were attentive throughout the whole process.

Response from Kings Group

Glad we could help!

You were a pleasure to work with and thank you for a lovely review. It is appreciated massively by Kings Group.


Good luck in the future Kings Group Cheshunt

Great service

They were great at keeping me updated with all the viewings however once I had accepted an offer I barely heard from them. It would have been nice to have received an email just hoping everything is going well with the sale. I did also have to remind them to confirm they had received my keys as i was unable to deliver them myself and I had to send over a document twice. All the staff were all friendly and helpful

Response from Kings Group

Good Afternoon. We just wanted to say how thankful we are for your kind review. It is really appreciated by everyone at Kings Group.

Hope you have settled into your new home!

Impressive

Elleisha-Ann in Kings Group Cheshunt contacted me after my previous agent did not give me the response and viewings that I would have expected from a known agent. Elleisha marketed , vetted and moved in new tenants within a very short space of time bringing multiple viewings to my door and getting hundred of pounds extra rent per month MORE than I had already been advised through my previous agents valuation.

Elleisha has exceeded massively and gives excellent market advise. I am very happy with the service I have received and impressed. I will be using Kings Group again.
