A conservation area on top of a hill, at the heart of pretty Winchmore Hill is its quintessential village green, uncommon in London nowadays. Cafes, restaurants, pubs and boutiques all cluster around its main rail station that will have you in central London in less than half an hour. A special mention has to go to Broad Walk, its very own "millionaire's row", home to the rich and famous. Although the picturesque village green might be the postcard face of Winchmore Hill, the N21 postcode reaches as far bordering Palmers Green, Southgate, Edmonton and Grange Park, so buyers shouldn’t focus their search on this area, as there’s so much more to explore.
Green Lanes, most commonly associated with Palmers Green and Harringay stretches as far north as Winchmore Hill’s main parade of shops, with further local restaurants, cafes, butchers and bakers, and a large Sainsburys sitting at the heart of the wider town. Properties in this pocket of leafy North London often come at a premium and families tend to stay due to the fine selection of great schools, access to amenities and beautiful parks, the most notable being Grovelands Park, boasting a nine-hole pitch and putt course, cafe, bowling green, basketball courts and more.
Winchmore Hill tends to attract celebrities, footballers and wealthy businessmen who have succumbed to the lure of the area and its flagship road, Broad Walk. A long road leading off the village green and bordering Grovelands Park, you’ll find mansions of shapes and sizes here, many which have knocked down and rebuilt into stunning state of the art homes.
