New North Square does something pretty rare – it pairs great London connections with a countryside setting. This shiny new-build property is set in the verdant Greater London suburb of Hainault, surrounded by not just one or two, but three parks – Fairlop Waters, Hainault Forest and Claybury.
Hainault’s Zone 4 station is just down the road from New North Square. It’s serviced by the Central line, which means a no-change commute to the West End in less than 45 minutes. The journey to Stratford takes half the time, where you’ll find shopping and dining mecca Westfield, as well as the famous Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
New North Square is made up of several multi-storey blocks, with red-brick facades and black wrought-iron balconies. The blocks are spread out among landscaped grounds, which provide ample space for reading and relaxing in the sunshine. There’s parking on-site, as well as a children’s play area. This is a mixed-use development, comprising residential flats and houses and office space.
Inside, homes are in sync with New North Square’s modern exteriors. Walls are painted a fresh white colour, floors are a sleek engineered wood, and lots of natural light features throughout. Team all that with an open-plan living and dining area, and each feels bright and airy.
The local area is mainly residential, with some leafy Victorian roads and a handful of highly thought-of schools making it popular with families. Manford Way is the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare, home to supermarkets, shops and cafés, although there are some amenities in the development’s immediate vicinity. In truth, it’s all fairly unremarkable, but close-by Chigwell has more character, with fancy restaurants and gastropubs and plentiful boutiques. It’s well worth making the 10-minute drive for.
New build mix of flats houses and town houses. Used to be the hughes factory on new north Road. Lovely community. Very quiet. Playground for the kids. Nice grassed areas. Permit parking
