4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Moving to Enfield

Loft Conversions Enfield - Bespoke Loft Idea

The most northerly of the London Boroughs, Enfield has long been a popular place for families and professional couples to live. It’s easy to see why it’s so sought after, with its expanses of green space, an abundance of history, a community feel and its proximity to central London. But if you can’t afford your dream home in Enfield at the moment and need more convincing, the answer could be the loft conversions Enfield homeowners use to extend their homes.

Read on as we explore four reasons why you should consider moving to Enfield, keeping plans to extend upwards in mind for the future.

1. House prices are reasonable

As London Boroughs go, Enfield is one of the more affordable. Average house prices in Enfield at the moment are around the £350,000 mark. Of course, this may still be for a smaller house than your requirements, but the great thing about Enfield is that you can buy smaller and then use a loft extension to make your home as big as you need it to be.
An extension means that you won’t be sacrificing any garden space but will still get the internal space that your family or lifestyle requires.

2. Enfield is close to central London

The great thing about Enfield is that it’s really close to central London, with excellent public transport connections into the city centre. With Crossrail 2 hopefully in the pipeline, Enfield will eventually be connected to southern parts of London, too.

Going in the opposite direction, it’s also on the doorstep of beautiful towns and cities in Hertfordshire, such as St. Albans.

Its location makes Enfield an excellent place for families to live and for professional couples to come home to at the end of the working day. All areas within the postcodes EN1, EN2, EN3, EN8, N21 and N9 are close to the city centre, so there’s plenty of choices if you want to move there.

It’s also perfect if you want to buy property in Enfield for your needs at the time of purchasing your home, and then extend as your requirements change. 

So, if you’re a professional couple or a young family, you’ll have all of the benefits of Enfield’s proximity to pretty much everything. Then you can add an attic conversion as your family grows or your needs change.

3. Enfield has beautiful green spaces

We all know the benefits of green spaces and being out and about in nature, and Enfield has an abundance of open spaces and parkland areas to offer. Plus, it’s easy to make the most of these green spaces and any views you have with one of the many loft conversions Enfield homeowners love.

One of our numerous top tips for extending your home in Enfield is to capitalise on views. So, if you overlook some of that Enfield green space, why not add floor to ceiling windows in a dormer loft conversion? You could even incorporate a Juliet balcony to really let the outside in.

4. There’s a good sense of community and social life

Enfield is a great place to live if you want a buzzing social life. There are a range of restaurants on your doorstep, as well as ample leisure facilities - including as many as seven golf clubs - and several cinemas. Of course, you’ve also got that quick connection into London for bigger days out, and there’s also plenty to keep the kids happy in Enfield, too, which is why it’s perfect for families!

Therefore, whether you want to have that buzz of an after-work drink or are looking to settle down into a family home, you can make Enfield work for you, and a loft conversion can give you that added dimension. Perhaps you need a home office within your loft space or simply an extra bedroom to accommodate a growing family; either way, you can create your dream home through a loft conversion in Enfield.
