Switch on to En­field and be at work fast

London Evening Standard (West End Final B) - ES Homes and Property - - New Homes -

BUY­ERS are push­ing into ar­eas just be­yond the North and South Cir­cu­lar roads, the bound­ary lines be­tween in­ner and outer London where land is cheaper and homes can be built at prices low enough to at­tract those need­ing to be within a 30-minute com­mute of the City.

En­field is one such spot. De­spite the sprawl, the old vil­lage cen­tre is still quite cute and the north London bor­ough is served by three train and three Tube sta­tions. It is also very well-con­nected to the mo­tor­way net­work. Live here and you can work any­where north of London as well as in the city cen­tre. The Elec­tric Quar­ter, left and above, a scheme of three- and four-bed­room town­houses at Pon­ders End, takes its name from the for­mer Edi­son and Swan Elec­tric Light Com­pany that used to oc­cupy the site. From £474,995. Call Lovell Homes on 020 3811 4240.
