Palmers Green, London N13, is a quietly prosperous north London neighbourhood with more than its share of green space. Less than eight miles from the West End, with convenient rail and tube connections which will get you there in half an hour or less.
The Green Lanes scheme is a collection of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, which are part of a larger development, offer the opportunity through shared ownership purchase to acquire a beautifully designed, well specified, contemporary home. You can enjoy a wealth of useful local amenities, and, if you work in the City or West End, fast and convenient commuting.
Palmers Green marks the point where London’s northern edges begin to broaden into the country side of Hertfordshire. In the early nineteenth century, it was still largely agricultural. However, since the advent of the railways gave it direct connections to central London, Palmers Green has always found favour with people who value good local shopping, sports and parks, and a sense of community.
This is a part of London where the residential streets are punctuated with local shopping centres, parks and playing fields, giving people plenty of options for their leisure activities.
Palmers Green’s shops, restaurants and pubs are concentrated along Green Lanes and
Alderman’s Hill, where the station is. There are restaurants serving Italian, Indian, French, Thai and Greek food, the latter reflecting the area’s large and long established Greek community. Bringing a taste of the countryside to town, the Community Market, held every Sunday in the station car park, has stalls selling fresh produce: a good place to stock up on your ‘five-a-day’.
For more general refilling of the larder, there’s also a Morrison’s on Alderman Hill.
