• Head to Hadley Wood, just 11 miles north of London, for A-list living
• Hadley Wood destination of choice for footballers, rugby players and recording artists
• Bellis Homes launches brand new luxury homes in Hadley Wood complete with cinema rooms, gyms, swimming pools and games rooms
For those looking for A-list living then it’s time to swap Kensington and Chelsea for the super suburb of Hadley Wood, just 11 miles north of central London.
With average house prices in Hadley Wood three times cheaper than those in Chelsea (£619,578 vs £1,980,453, Zoopla May 2017) yet situated within the coveted zone 6 boundary, with strong transport links, good schools and plenty of space courtesy of the green belt, it’s no wonder that this Greater London enclave has become so attractive.
The great and the good to call Hadley Wood home include footballers Darren Bent, Kieran Gibbs, Kanu and Robbie Keane, English rugby player Kyran Bracken, boxer Lennox Lewis, columnist and presenter Richard Littlejohn and a host of recording artists from former Spice Girl Emma Bunton to Lemar and Girl’s Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh. Even fellow former band mate Cheryl Cole owned a property here with her ex Ashley Cole.
The appeal of being ‘close but not too close’ to London has seen Hadley Wood’s popularity soar and indeed echoes research from Experian which reveals that major cities such as London are becoming increasingly segmented with commuting spreading beyond the confines of a single built-up area.
Indeed, the geography of Hadley Wood, with its mainline rail link to Moorgate in 35 minutes and Piccadilly Line from nearby Cockfosters, not to mention easy access to the M25 and A1(M), is one of its greatest assets.
One house builder star struck by the appeals of Hadley Wood is Bellis Homes.
“Hadley Wood offers something for everyone. The ideal environment to raise a family, with plenty of open space, good education options and a community feel as well easy transport links for those working in the City. This leafy, secluded London suburb combines luxury living with privacy and tranquillity.”
