Why Move to Brentwood?
An historic Essex cathedral town on the North-east suburbs of London, Brentwood began to grow towards the end of the 12th century as pilgrims passed through a crossroads, between the old Roman road from Colchester to London, en route to the Kent town of Canterbury.
Flash forward to the present and the town is continuing to grow in status, in large part due to its long-term residents who feature on the reality TV show, The Only Way Is Essex. Boutique independent stores, cosy cafes and gourmet eateries appearing on screen highlight the growing affluence and lustre of this town. The town’s buzzing nightlife, including the much-acclaimed Sugar Hut attracts party revellers from all over Essex and London.
Brentwood also showcases an enviable work-life balance, hotly sought after by disgruntled London commuters. With London Liverpool Street station just a 30-minute commute by rail, the capital and all its glamour are on your doorstop. This trend is set to continue from May 2019 when Crossrail will add services direct into the heart of London in 45 minutes on the new Elizabeth line. Bear in mind however that such developments have caught the interest of plucky buy-to-let investors and demand for more housing has pushed up property prices considerably.
Nevertheless, Brentwood remains an ideal relocation destination for young families with plenty of good secondary and primary schools in the local area to choose from and no shortage of open countryside, including two country parks to revel in during your downtime.
Working in Brentwood
The economy in the town is steadily growing. In recent years Brentwood’s high street has been subject to major redevelopment works costing up to £7 million and has created employment both in construction and the service sectors. As a result, unemployment figures are lower than many other towns and cities in the region. There is a strong presence of high value, professional, scientific, technical and financial sectors in the district and business growth in these areas has also been good. Future growth is forecast to occur within service sectors, administrative and support services.
Some very high-profile companies have their headquarters in and around the town. The Ford Motor Company’s UK headquarters are located in the suburb of Warley, as are the property developers Countryside Properties. Hinge manufacturers, NV Tools are based in Hutton. The American company, The Bank of New York Mellon also has a substantial presence in Brentwood.
Once you have relocated to your new home in Brentwood, there is a whole host of important things you need to organise. Below is some practical information which may prove helpful.
Things to Do in Brentwood
The town itself has several popular country parks to visit and enjoy. Thorndon Park is a haven for those who enjoy long leisurely walks and nature. Famous for its deer park, views and Stick Man play trail, Weald Country Park covers over 500 acres of woodland, wildflower meadows and open grassland.
Brentwood Ski Centre offers a more adrenalin filled experience, perfect for improving your skiing or snowboarding abilities. If you are looking for your adrenaline kick but wish to forego technical lessons then try the action-packed activity of tubing, no prior experience is necessary and its great fun for all ages.
Old Macdonald’s Farm & Fun Park is a great place to take the young ones and let them run loose. Open to the public throughout the year no matter the weather there is much to do both indoors and outdoors. With everything from animals, parks, play areas, tractors, trains, carousel rides and workshops to choose from your children will never be stuck for fun activities.
Property Prices in Brentwood
Brentwood is perceived as being relatively affluent with a village atmosphere that attracts families to the area. There are some beautiful but expensive period properties on the market, as well as several new home developments which provide modern open plan living accommodation attractive to many young professionals. The Galleries and Burntwood Square, both constructed by Lindon Homes have some lovely first-time buyer homes.
With the new Crossrail railway line, which is currently under development and due to open in December 2018, it is predicted that property prices in Brentwood are set to rise. This has manifested in the increase of demand both for purchasing and buy to let properties. As such demand often outstrips supply with there said to be 20 potential buyers for each home in the area.
The average property price is currently £549,000, well over the national average. A semi-detached property goes for around 495,000 and a large detached family home starts at around £830,000. A two-bedroom apartment would cost around £300,000 and a two-bedroom terrace house £380,000. The most expensive homes are to be found in Mill Hill, Shenfield and Hillwood Grove in Hutton, both boast homes in excess of £2-3 million pounds.
