Current Statistics ►

There are people who feel strongly about whether their home address is on a Road, Street, Crescent or Square and developers often assume that one will attract a higher price than another. To test the theory, we explored 2017 sales data to see whether we could identify any correlation between suffix and price.

  • The average price of a property sold on a "Road" to date in 2017 is £301,950, however there are premium purchase properties elsewhere. To purchase on a “Park” expect to pay a 9% premium while to purchase on a “Place”, “Hill”, or “Garden” could add thousands to your purchase price. Owning a property with no street address at all, added £10,000 to one on a “Road”.

  • At the top end of the budget, just 0.5% of all properties sold this year have been on a “Square”, where the average price is £462,895, a stunning 53% more expensive than a “Road”. But “Road” has kerb appeal for more buyers than any other address, accounting for a substantial 30.7% of all sales this year.

Natalie took part in the Cancer Research Race for Life Pretty Muddy on Sunday 3rd September. It was "pretty muddy" due to the Cornish Autumn weather, but a brilliant time was had by all and Natalie raised a fantastic total of £183.00 for Cancer Research!

Lifestyle The Guild of Professional Estate Agents 8th April 2016

With its many attractions, including its famous circular tube station, Southgate has a cosmopolitan feel yet a strong residential community. Thanks to the Piccadilly Line’s arrival back in 1933, it only takes a swift 30 minutes before you’re in the delights of glittering Central London.

Yet the suburb feels like its own little town with some lovely green spaces, a bunch of handy shops and a plethora of restaurants to satisfy your every taste.  It’s especially in demand at the moment and families are rushing to get their hands on a place to call home in the area.


Pubs and places to eat
Ye Olde Cherry Tree stands out for many as the pub of choice. It has the perfect mix of old and new, and it serves up some mouth-watering food alongside a selection of delicious beers and wines. For a more country pub vibe, head over to The Woodman, and expect to be greeted by a friendly face.

La Paella is an absolute treat and they have a wonderful tapas selection as well as fun flamenco evenings. Green’s Steakhouse & Grill is another favourite amongst the locals and we’re told their gourmet burgers are to die for.

Green spaces and leisure
One of the many reasons that makes Southgate a winner amongst families is the number of green spaces which provide that laid-back lifestyle most families living in London crave.

Grovelands Park is home to a mansion, a golf course, a café, a putting green, a basketball court and lots of space for walking, running and cycling. Broomfield Park is another popular choice, attracting swathes of families all year round to enjoy the water garden, orchard and 21 hectares of green open space. You’ve also got Cockfosters’ Trent Country Park a short journey away, which plays host to all sorts of festivities throughout the summer.

Transport links
The Piccadilly Line will take you from Southgate into Central London within 30 minutes and there are a number of local buses to help you get around. It’s also close to the M25 for visiting family and friends across the country, and Heathrow and Luton airports are both only about 45 minutes away for jetting off to lands faraway.
 
Schools
There are a number of schools in Southgate, making it an excellent choice for those with little ones. For primary and juniors, there’s Salcombe Preparatory School, Walker Primary School and Osidge Primary. For children aged 11 and upwards, Ashmole Academy and The Compton School are popular choices.
 
Types of property
You’ll find Georgian houses, Victorian cottages and Edwardian homes across the area, alongside lots of 1930s interwar properties. The ‘Meadway’ and ‘Lakes’ estates are generally the most sought-after postcodes.

Property market
Bennett Walden in Southgate has reported a lack of supply in the area with lots of people looking to buy good houses. Prices have, unsurprisingly, risen, and it’s thought that this is down to the lack of property to meet the market’s high demand.
