12 Jul No. 1 Millbrook Park, Mill Hill, London
Mill Hill is a pleasant, leafy area, an outer suburb of North London, with bustling high streets, characterful pubs, train stations for easy access into central London (around a 30-minute journey) and quiet tree-lined roads, so green you could easily imagine yourself in the countryside. In short, a lovely place to live, and not too far from our offices.
For a hundred years the Inglis Barracks in Mill Hill, named after Lieutenant General Sir William Inglis, was home to numerous regiments, from the Duke of Cambridge’s Own, to the Royal Engineers and the Women’s Royal Army Corp (WRAC), but in 2012, with no military presence having been in the barracks for a number of years, the site was sold and slowly but surely became the Millbrook Park that we know today.
No 1 Millbrook Park is a development of 149 one and two-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom town houses. Prices for properties range from a 606 sq. ft one-bedroom flat for £455,000 to a 2,346 sq. ft, four-bedroom house, available at a snip under £1,225,000. This may seem pricey, but given the area, its proximity to central London and prices in the wider market of the surrounding areas of Finchley, Hendon and Whetstone, it’s actually quite reasonable.
No 1 Millbrook Park was developed by Joseph Homes, a name that has been synonymous with quality and attention to detail for the last 12 years. From small beginnings, collaborating with housing associations to deliver a hundred homes over its first few years to now delivering hundreds of new homes a year, primarily in central and suburban London, Joseph Homes has remained small in size, but limitless in its dreams.
The development at No 1 Millbrook Park is a great representation of that. Currently 11 properties are available on their site, with a further 9 already reserved for buyers. Some are available on the Help to Buy scheme, to make them more accessible to younger buyers who may struggle in this day and age to scrape together the significant deposits now required to buy any property, others are not. All are worthy of a viewing in our opinion.
Each property has a modern contemporary style with a nod to the characterful homes that are found elsewhere in the region. Wood has been used in many areas within the homes, from the black American walnut finish on the front door, to the engineered oak timber flooring across much of the ground floor. Underfloor heating creates cleaner lines and more space in every room, open-plan living inspired the layouts, and understated style has influenced the delicate pastel colouring and modern sleek kitchens in each property.
