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.
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.

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.

We bought and sold our property through Kings Group. During the process we worked with a number of their agents/representatives all of whom acted in a professional, courteous and timely manner.
From start to finish we were made to feel that the agents were working for us and they were always easily contactable, something we valued very highly.

Kings Groups stood out to be different from what I expected. Their customer service is amazing, great staff with so much help. There is this guy that was so helpful before I moved in Anthony w and Rosie, they made sure everything went well.
When ever I had difficulties with anything or something not working, kings Group property management do not waste time to come and sort it out in most cases. Very rare cases that I can have a delay. They have great customer service and very excellent communication skills.
I wish i could stay with kings and with this particular Landlord but i was not able to afford . Their house and flats are very beautiful and spacious, and clean.
I was always informed of anything when need arises and they do their best to accommodate the time convenient for their customers.
I will recommend Kings Group to anyone who would like to Join them.

As a first time buyer, I really had no idea of the processes involved in obtaining a mortgage or what was best for me.
The process in obtaining a mortgage was seamless and at the end of it all, I thought "Was that it?" - I expected it to be a lot more stressful for me.
So, well done to Richard for making it all so easy.

I was given 48 hours and pressurised to sign up AST deeds etc which was filled with unknown changes and errors. No clear negotiations took place that gave me any level of comfort and I had to at the same time do my own research of what to do

The staff are very friendly, keen and always willing to help. There is a staff who is simply outstanding in his role, he has won numerous awards in the field of mortgage brokerage his name is Richard Rushworth. Richard is an expert in providing mortgage advice and have a wide variety of lenders at his disposal. Richard will sort it out for you, this enables you to focus on finding a suitable home with the enthusiastic team at Kings Enfield Town. When you eventually find your home/ house via Richard all the legal services were taken care of in-house. Finally I would strongly recommend their Kings as a one stop shop for buying or selling your property.

Richard Rushworth's courteous and professional approach in dealing with my mortgage requirements was excellent. My house sale was far from normal with constant delays that evolved into over five months of conveyancing. Richard always kept in touch and gave the best advice possible when needed. I have no complaints only to thank Richard for his cooperation and understanding of a truly testing time!
