A short history
Harlow was built in 1947 to the masterplan of Sir Frederick Gibberd. In order to create a community feel, the town was designed with separate neighbourhoods, each with local shops, health centres, schools, community facilities and green spaces.
The original Harlow New Town was built after World War II to ease overcrowding in London and the surrounding areas due to the mass devastation caused by the bombing during the Blitz.
Church Langley is a later addition, built during the 1990's and contains roughly 3500 homes.
Property here is almost exclusively new-build – modern, stylishly designed and well-furnished, with big gardens and driveways. There is a good range of two, three and four bedroom houses to suit all tastes – detached, semi-detached and terraced – as well as a few smaller maisonettes and flats.
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 Church Langley, Old Harlow, Newhall, Potter Street and surrounding areas can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties.

Many of these are owned by the Harlow Art Trust, an organisation set up in 1953 by Sir Frederick Gibberd, who felt that everyone should be able to enjoy great sculptures by great artists on every street corner.
