An idyllic setting for a modern lifestyle
Originally a high-class garden suburb devised for Londoners escaping to the country, the affluent neighbourhood of Gidea Park remains an idyllic setting for a modern lifestyle. Surrounded by vast swathes of open green space and a vibrant community spirit – its relaxed atmosphere and excellent amenities have attracted residents for over a century.
Close to the Grade II listed “exhibition homes” that were built in 1910-11 – the winning entries in a major architectural competition – Burns Court is ideally located to enjoy all the area has to offer. With the tranquil lake at Raphael Park and Lodge Farm Park on the doorstep, and ancient woodland with herds of deer at the nearby Bedfords Park, there is ample opportunity to enjoy the fresh air, whichever direction you turn. With over 100 parks, the borough of Havering is one of the greenest in the capital and includes a varied selection of sporting clubs, activities and leisure facilities, all close by.
With excellent schools, bustling churches and a range of community activities – and even a delightful miniature railway – Gidea Park has its own identity, quite unique from the rest of Romford. Main Road offers an eclectic selection of shops and services at the end of Balgores Lane, so you won’t have to travel far for everyday essentials. For a wider range of retail opportunities, Romford’s colourful historic market attracts shoppers from miles around, while the town’s three shopping centres – The Liberty, Brewery and Mercury – between them host over 200 high street and independent stores, alongside cafés, delis and eateries. There is also a choice of cinemas and an award-winning modern theatre. Alternatively, Brentwood is just a few miles away for a selection of bars, restaurants and boutiques, while Westfield Stratford City, the O2 and the Olympic Park are within easy reach.
Despite its leafy setting, there are excellent connections to central London. In addition, the picturesque countryside of Essex is effortlessly accessible, and as the gateway to East Anglia, encourages day trips to the coast. The A12 borders the north of the community and J28 of the M25 is only about 4 miles away. For international travel, London Southend airport and Stansted airport are within 30 miles and Gatwick reachable in just under an hour.
