A Spotlight On: Silkstream

At Berkeley Group our passion and purpose is to build quality homes, strengthen communities and improve people's lives and Silkstream, in North London exemplifies this vision.

Let’s explore what makes Silkstream so special…

Where is Silkstream?

Located in West Hendon, nestled between Brent Cross and Wembley, with the stadium’s iconic arch visible on the horizon, Silkstream is in a prime location for some of North London’s best school districts, green spaces and shopping - particularly with one of the UK’s largest shopping centres nearby. It’s only 19 minutes away from King’s Cross via Thameslink, meaning that the heart of London is right on your doorstep.

Key Features of Silkstream 

Green spaces and city living

Those green spaces really need to be seen to be believed. The public park and resident gardens have been inspired by traditional British landscapes, and carefully crafted to provide spaces for relaxation and fun where the hustle and bustle of London feels a million miles away.

A new oxbow lake has been designed to not only offer a peaceful escape for residents but also to enrich the biodiversity of the area that will benefit plants, birds and animals alike, enhancing the ecology in the local area.

Meanwhile, the mosaic garden offers a mixture of habitat types, with flower rich meadows, grassland, scrubland and much more. Combined, these new features are predicted to provide a net biodiversity increase of 895% upon completion.

The woodland garden is a perfect place to find some shade on a sunny afternoon to relax, while the open meadow garden is there to bring people together.

Health and fitness

City life can take its toll but Silkstream offers the perfect respite, from sunrise yoga classes to sunset strolls through the green spaces, letting you get your lifestyle back in balance without needing to stray far from home. 

This includes the on-site private gym and fitness centre, which brings the greenery inside in bright and modern settings and all the latest equipment to keep you fit and healthy.
And for some proper relaxation, why not book out one of the private screening rooms for a movie night in comfort?

Things to do in Hendon

This bustling and vibrant area of North London has great connections to the best that the capital has to offer, with King’s Cross just 19 minutes away and Oxford Street only 25 minutes away, putting the likes of Hyde Park, London Zoo, the West End and Camden Market all within just half an hour of your front door.

But you don’t even need to go that far, with amazing green spaces within reach, including the Welsh Harp reservoir, Golders Hill Park and Hampstead Heath. 

Most notably, Brent Cross Shopping Centre (London’s first enclosed shopping centre) is just a short drive away with more than 120 stores plus lots of events, including a beach during the summer months.

For outdoor activities, the Silkstream Park Tennis and Metro Golf Centre are both nearby while local parks include Fryent Country Park, Sunny Hill Park, and Silkstream Park, all of which are great for families.

Hendon is situated between two of the Mayor of London’s key growth projects, with increased connectivity coming through a new Thameslink Station at Brent Cross West, due for completion in December 2022 and a major expansion underway at the shopping centre.

All of this makes it a great time to find your new home at Silkstream
