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.

I chose Kings Group Estate Agents located at Cheshunt to sale my house because I wanted a reliable , dependable service and I was not let down . The staff assigned for the sale ( Georgina and Joe ) were most polite and respectful in notifications of viewings . They were always punctual in viewing appointments and communicated every offer across to me . I will certainly recommend Kings Group to my friends and associates.

I had my property on the market with the Cheshunt branch and the first 4 weeks was okay so on the feedback i was asked to give i did but as soon as the review was done the service took a major nose dive. I was without contact from the agent for 2-3 weeks at a time no courtesy calls to say the market is quiet or there is no interest and then i was getting calls from new negotiators to view the property but they never made previous appointments to view the property themselves so they knew what they was selling before showing perspective buyers. I found myself letting people know about the property as the negotiators was staring at me blankly when i was asking if they had informed them of things. The customer service is very poor and the original negotiator Georgia that i thought i had built up a good relationship with had left the branch as i have had no contact for at least 2 months with. I know that properties may take a while to sell but a courtesy call once a week is standard practice to the vendor? obviously not! I am really appalled at how they conduct business and that it is only the name being so well known that brings in the business but the service you expect is a far cry from the one you receive. I am very disappointed and think the office is poorly run with no feedback calls after viewings as well as courtesy calls. POOR PRACTICE!

Response from Kings Group

Dear seller, thank you for taking the time to contact us. As per our conversation today I am always keen for my staff to provide the best possible service and where this falls short,  I am committed to finding the right solution to ensure we continually improve. I have given my personal details so that should any issues arise moving forward, I will be on hand to resolve swiftly.
