Edmonton Area Guide
Edmonton nestles in the south-east of the London Borough of Enfield and is just over 8 miles from Charing Cross. It borders Barnet to the west, Haringey to the south and Waltham Forest to the east. To the north the area opens out into the expansive countryside of Hertfordshire – and Broxbourne, Welwyn, Hatfield and Hertsmere – and to the north-east is the extensive ancient woodland of Epping Forest.
Although a traditionally working class area, Edmonton is attracting more and more first time buyers. One of the many reasons for this is the area has been a focus for rejuvenation, for example the multi-million pound regeneration of Edmonton Green that has brought new housing, retail, health care and leisure space. Included in the investment package is the £1.5 billion Meridian Water redevelopment project, which will provide up to 3000 new jobs and 5000 new homes for the area.
Edmonton offers a wealth of open space popular with families, ramblers, joggers and picnickers alike; with nearby Pymmes Park, Picketts Lock Leisure centre, Lea Valley Park and River Lea walk, as well as numerous recreational grounds and public gardens. Additionally, as well as its own cricket club, there are plentiful opportunities for sporting activities including Edmonton Leisure Centre (providing a swimming pool and sports hall), the Lee Valley Leisure Complex, and cycling routes and angling at Pickett's Lock.
With the numerous expanses of open space; wide selection of schools and leisure facilities; its location in the midst of vibrant north London; the millions of pounds of development ongoing in the area; and its competitively priced properties, Edmonton is undoubtedly an attractive choice for any purchaser or investor.
