Wide tree lined streets, great schools, a town centre filled with restaurants, pubs and shops, and an Underground Station that takes you into Central London in 30 minutes, all encircled by an abundance of green space, Southgate has everything you need on your doorstep. Popular with families and those looking to upsize, N14 is dominated by houses of all shapes and sizes, from grand detached mansions to mock Tudor semis and modest terraces. To cope with the growing demand from young professionals and smaller families looking to make Southgate home, many purpose-built blocks of low-rise flats and modern housing estates have also sprung up in recent years.
The Tube Station, designed by the architect Charles Holden, has been hailed an architectural delight due to it spaceship-like design. Just a 2-minute walk from this iconic building and you’ll find the Homelink office, proudly sitting in the middle of a bustling high street.
Southgate and the surrounding areas are blessed with many parks, including Grovelands Park, boasting a nine-hole pitch and putt course, cafe, bowling green, basketball courts and more. Broomfield Park to its south features a model boating pond, attractive lake, bandstand, tennis courts and more. While just a short way away in Cockfosters lies Trent Park, which consists of 320 hectares of green space encompassing lakes, meadows, a café, Trent Park golf course, and a Go Ape.
