Moving to Cheshunt
If you enjoy greenery, this is the place for you!
Cheshunt lies on the outskirt of London, just north of the M25 and if you enjoy greenery, then it’s the place for you. There are plenty of parks, including Lea Valley with their array of activities for adults and children. You’re never more than half an hour from the centre of London or a gorgeous country walk.
Steeped in history, Cheshunt is the place for you if you love discovering gems of the past. The town was referenced in the Domesday Book in 1086, recorded as Cestrehunt, referring to a castle no longer in existence. The town is home to the first railway line in the country and the first passenger-carrying monorail line ever built.
Feel like a celebrity!
With various claims to fame, you’ll feel like a celebrity! Amongst the previous and current residents are Victoria Beckham, David Bentley, Olympic gold medalist Laura Trott and (we’ve saved the best for last) Sir Cliff Richard! Besides celebrities, Royalty also graced Cheshunt with their presence. Elizabeth I lived there as a princess and Richard Cromwell, Lord Protector of the Commonwealth, passed away there in 1712.
Commuting from Cheshunt
Those planning to move just out of London are usually looking for two things: Good transport connections and more property for money. Cheshunt has long been hailed as the town for London workers to move to, with three major train stations. Houses in the area are currently cheaper than those in the surrounding areas of Goffs Oaks and Broxbourne, though this might not be the case for long.
The exciting prospect of Crossrail 2, better connecting the South East with the rest of London and beyond, could push the house prices higher. Crossrail 2 would make commuting to London quicker and easier, meaning Cheshunt will be on everyone’s “Move-To” list.
