Enfield property offers first-time buyers hope

The historic town of Enfield has plenty to offer first-time buyers who are looking for a place in the capital. The London borough is just ten miles away from Charing Cross and has competitive prices compared to some of its neighbouring communities.

Enfield's town market is held every Monday. It was originally opened by Humphrey de Bohun and his wife after a charter was announced by Edward I  in 1303. It gave them permission to hold the market once a week, and James I granted another in 1617, to a charitable trust, for a market on Saturday.

However, the market started to fail and it had to close despite various attempts to save it. Trading resumed in the 1870s and a new wooden structure was developed in 1904 to replace the previous stone one that had been built before the market was closed. In modern Enfield, the market is a thriving part of life in the borough and is administered by the Old Enfield Charitable Trust.

For people looking for property for sale in Enfield, the area has plenty of local benefits including Waltham Forest. This gives the London borough access to a clean, green environment with its reservoirs and open spaces, and there are even small sections of Epping Forest nearby. In addition, the area has a number of parks and playing fields, making it an ideal location for young families. There are also several schools on offer, including Enfield Grammar.

After redevelopment, the area of Enfield now has its own thriving economy, opening up employment opportunities for those in the vicinity.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801776160-ADNFCR
