Designed by LABC award winning MH Architects, The Place is designed to be creative and energy conscious, with each home having its own outside terrace, balcony or winter garden.
Simon Scott, Assistant Director, Commercial & Property Marketing for Origin Housing, comments:
Recent research has revealed that a ‘dissatisfying commute’ is one of the main factors of people not looking forward to going into work, which is often down to the long time it takes to travel into central London*. Unfortunately, moving closer to the inner city is not an option for many potential purchasers –a shorter commute often means higher house prices, meaning many first time buyers are priced out of well-connected locations.
The Place offers buyers the chance to get a step on the property ladder, without the ‘dissatisfying commute’ – with trains taking just 14 minutes to reach Highbury & Islington, where residents will have access to the London Underground and Overground services, offering plenty of fast options to travel across the capital.
Located just minutes from New Southgate station – proposed rail improvements are also set to make connections from New Southgate even better, with the station planned to be the north termination point for the Crossrail 2, which will offer fast train journeys to Seven Sisters, Euston and Victoria train stations. Arnos Grove station is also just a short walk from The Place, where the Piccadilly line operates, providing a fast commute to St Pancras in just 17 minutes.

The Place is close to parkland and green spaces, allowing residents to enjoy the best of the countryside. The historic Arnos Park is a short walk from The Place, where residents can take a stroll along the Pymmes Brook Trail which runs through the centre of the park. Also nearby is Brunswick Park, which boasts a playground, sports field and tennis courts for locals to enjoy. London hotspot Alexandra Palace can be reached in under 5 minutes on the train, with plenty of activities and events taking place at the well-known grounds.
Nearby, there are a number of independent businesses in New Southgate that create a community hub, including buzzy café Boyden’s Kitchen and The Arnos Arms, offering a whole host of weekly events for locals to get involved with.
