Why Move to Brentwood?
During the 17th Century the town was a mahor stopping point for travellers making the pilgrimage to Canterbury. At that time there were 11 inns offering bed and board, the White Hart is the only one remaining, these days it is better known as the Sugar Hut, a nightclub!
Of late, Brentwood’s profile has been well and truly elevated to new heights due to the TV reality show Towie which is filmed in and around this area.
As well as this spotlight, the highly anticipated Crossrail is also going to enhance the towns reputation, making it even easier to get to the capital and other larger towns and cities across the region.
An affluent and attractive town, all this recent attention has inevitably meant that Brentwood has become an investment property hotspot.
It has plenty of green appeal with lots of open spaces to enjoy. It also has the added attraction of open countryside on its doorstep. Less than 20% of the borough is built-up making it an ideal choice for young families.
Trains from Shenfield station take about 38 minutes to Liverpool Street and, from May 2019, Crossrail will cut the journey time to central London to about 45 minutes.
Lying a few miles outside the M25 and close to the A12, roads to London, Chelmsford and Colchester offer excellent all-round travel connections.
The towns high street has a good mix of local shops and big stores alongside lots of popular independent shops. Brentwood’s boutique-town feel attracts a multitude of new residents and once here, very few leave.
Schools in Brentwood
The town offers a mixture of state schools, parochial schools (Church of England and Catholic) and independent prep schools.
Among some of the best primaries are Hutton All Saints C of E and St Helens Catholic schools, both reported as “good” following their latest Ofsted inspections.
The best of the secondaries in the area include; Ursuline Convent High, The Endeavour School both rated as “good” with St Martins Senior School receiving an “outstanding” rating by Ofsted.
Brentwood also has two renowned historic institutions; Brentwood School, founded in 1557, and the Catholic cathedral, which began life as a parish church in 1861.
Local Attractions in Brentwood
The town has many fine amenities from its numerous national parks to the Brentwood Centre with its gym, swimming pool, squash court and concert hall all in one.
Brentwood’s numerous country parks are havens for nature-lovers, walkers and families alike. Thorndon Park is home to the famous Gruffalo Trail ideal for families, Weald Park is the home of Stick Man Play Trail and there’s some real animal magic at Old MacDonald’s Farm on the outskirts of the town.
Brentwood Park Ski and Snowboard Centre overlooks more than 54 acres of beautiful scenic woodland.
An exciting variety of dry skiing and snowboarding to suit all ability levels as well as a ski shop selling a range of ski clothing and equipment, if you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at skiing this is the ideal place.
Housed in a picturesque 19th century building, Brentwood Museum was once a sexton’s cottage. Although small, it offers a fascinating insight into Brentwood life in the early part of this century, with an exciting collection of social and domestic objects dating from around 1840-1950.

Property Prices in Brentwood
Crossrail is not only set to enhance Brentwood’s commuter town status but its property prices too. As more and more people are leaving the city and looking to live more rural lifestyles, Brentwood and the nearby villages such as Warley, Ingrave and Shenfield have become increasingly sought after.
Housing stock is diverse but in short supply. Close to Brentwood train station there are some lovely twenties styled homes and a good selection of bungalows. The centre of the town still has some very nice Victorian properties and even a few older period homes.
As a guide, you can expect to pay £116,000 for a retirement apartment, £180,000 for a one bedroomed apartment close to Brentwood station and upward of £450,000 for a detached 3 bedroomed home.
