Trent Park, Enfield: A London haven steeped in history
Berkeley Homes prepares to unveil magnificent new scheme set within 413 acres of parkland
Hong Kong, 10 March 2021 - Quintessential country living emerges amidst a rich and compelling history at Berkeley Homes (North East London) Ltd’s new development, Trent Park, Enfield, North London. An enchanting scheme of new and heritage homes set in 413 acres of verdant parkland, Trent Park represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in such an idyllic setting. Offering a true sense of escapism and a relaxed pace of life, it resonates with the spirit of the great outdoors, yet is just a stone’s throw from central London.
A collection of distinguished homes
Comprising over 250 traditionally designed homes, including new and restored heritage buildings, within 56 acres of historic grounds, Trent Park will launch one, two and three-bedroom apartments and five-bedroom houses in Hong Kong. Its centrepiece will be the Mansion House – a Grade II Listed Mansion that is being thoughtfully restored to its former brilliance and glory, sensitively reimagined for the most discerning 21st Century buyers.
Trent Park’s first phase located to the south west of the development, some of which enjoy views towards the Mansion House and historic Daffodil Lawn. Offering light and space in abundance, each of the carefully considered new homes enjoys an unparalleled attention to detail, and has been designed for young and growing families, as well as downsizers, to enjoy life in a greener setting.
Emulating the inherent grandeur and traditional architecture existing on site, the brick-built new homes have been conceived to enhance a connection with the natural landscape, evoking a sense of outdoor living, while bringing to life the true essence and extensive heritage of the site.
A network of amenities
A compelling lifestyle proposition, the development is nestled in the heart of Trent Country Park – a former medieval hunting ground – surrounded by wildlife, ponds, lakes and ancient woodland, and above all, traditional English countryside. With breath-taking scenery all year round, from forest glades to an expanse of bluebells, it reinvigorates the senses. Nature trails, country walks, bike paths and historical curiosities abound, alongside play areas, Southgate Hockey Club, Trent Park Golf Club, and a wildlife rescue centre – inspiring a new enjoyment of life outdoors.
Complementing the village community atmosphere of Trent Park, there is a supporting infrastructure that includes a residents’ gym, which will be housed within the original orangery, offering uninterrupted views of the Mansion House, as well as an outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts, to encourage enjoyment of life outside. For those keen to venture further afield, a regular shuttle bus is on hand to transport residents to Oakwood Underground Station.
A short stroll from Trent Park is the colourful Cockfosters high street – home to a friendly local community. From relaxed coffee shops and continental delicatessens to an independent florist, a choice of eateries and bars, there is an eclectic blend of boutiques and shops.
For those with school age children, there is a choice of excellent schools, located only a few minutes’ drive from Trent Park. From nursery schools through to primary schools, prep schools and senior schools, the educational needs of every child can be met in easy reach of the development.
A rich historical legacy
A cornerstone of modern history, Trent Park House and its Daffodil Lawn – borne of a million bulbs, were remodelled and commissioned respectively at the turn of the 20th Century by former owner and society darling, Sir Philip Sassoon. A ‘socialite’s paradise’, Trent Park played host to the great and the good, from Sir Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George, to Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, Wrex Whistler and Charlie Chaplin. The Queen, Elizabeth II, also visited as a young girl.
Requisitioned by the War Office in 1939, Trent Park became synonymous with MI6 and early innovations in intelligence. ‘Wired for sound’, its grand state rooms were home to a succession of incarcerated German Generals and high-ranking officers, who unwittingly disclosed classified information about Hitler’s military tactics to a team of ‘Secret Listeners’, who covertly recorded every detail, helping to change the trajectory of WWII.
John Sanders, Managing Director of Berkeley Homes (North East London) Ltd, comments: “A landmark development, Trent Park offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for buyers. With its collection of intelligently designed homes, ideal for modern living, amidst an historic landscape, Trent Park has been devised to bring a long lasting, sustainable community to life.
“Trent Park is a unique lifestyle opportunity for those looking for a step change away from the hustle and bustle of London life. Easily commutable to the centre of town, it offers acres of English countryside, a genuine sense of space, and an idyllic setting where the whole family can unwind, run free and explore.
“Furthermore, the onsite facilities are complemented by an array of leisure opportunities and established local infrastructure, from the golf and hockey clubs to Go Ape to the wildlife rescue centre, making Trent Park an enriching and rewarding place to live, and a new platform from which to experience truly active lifestyles,” said Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential at JLL in Hong Kong.
Benefitting from an established network of transport links, Trent Park offers easy proximity to road, rail and transport links across the capital, the South East and beyond. A short drive from the M25, and just 26 minutes by tube to London’s King’s Cross station via nearby Oakwood Underground Station, it is ideally situated for commuters in search of a relaxed pace of lifestyle amidst the tranquillity of a parkland setting.
