Providing a homely and tranquil escape from Central London, our historically rich development, situated in the heart of Trent Park can be found over in Enfield within North London. While this quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle makes a great property location for anyone after a peaceful home life, it's only a short distance from the M25 and just 26 minutes from King's Cross Station via tube for anyone commuting into Central London.
Trent Park was once part of Enfield Wood, an area of lush woodland that covered a considerable portion of North London, which was transformed into a royal game reserve by Henry IV when the estate came under royal ownership. After changing hands several times over the centuries, Trent Park eventually played host to the estate of Sir Philip Sassoon, a well-loved London socialite and politician who hosted extravagant parties which were attended by the likes of Sir Winston Churchill, George Bernard Shaw and Charlie Chaplin.
Following Sassoon's death in 1939, the estate was consigned to British Intelligence by the War Office during World War Two, then into part of Middlesex University following the war, and finally under the Berkeley Group banner to restore the buildings to their former glory and immortalise its history with an on-site museum.
Enfield has a particularly high concentration of green spaces within North London, ranging from the Lee Valley Regional Park and Forty Hall Country Park to smaller but no less impressive spaces like Oakwood Park and Covert Way Nature Reserve. All of this give residents easy access to beautiful walks which bring them closer to nature, perfect for spring mornings and late summer afternoons.
If you want to stay even closer to home, then how about on your very own doorstop. Trent Park is surrounded by 413 acres of Country Park, with some apartments facing directly onto the historic daffodil lawn.
For any aspiring amateur golfers then there is a plethora of golf courses available in the area for you to refine your swing and perfect your game. Enfield has its very own club which dates back to 1893, catering to players of all skill levels as well as holding a number of social events throughout the year so you can meet the local golfing community. Old Fold Manor, Whitewebbs and Trent Park also offer 18 hole courses set over North London's gorgeous green spaces that will give you plenty of variety to play with.
Amazing arts community
