Why move to Nazeing?

Why move to Nazeing?

London’s a great city to spend your twenties in, but for many people, the time eventually comes to move out of the capital. Maybe it’s because you want to raise a family or simply enjoy a slower pace of life.

Of course, you don’t want to move too far. Being able to continue in the same job is often important. Fortunately, the Home Counties are a great option, giving former London residents the peace of the countryside as well as an easy commute back to the capital. While I specialise in properties in East London, Dockleys also buys and sells a lot of properties in Hertfordshire and Essex, where many East Londoners move to.

Living in Nazeing

Nazeing is very popular with ex-Londoners – some of my fantastic East London clients have just moved into their new home there. This village is on the border between Essex and Hertfordshire and offers a realistic alternative to busy city life. At first glance, the village seems to be just a street of shops, but take time to explore (we’ll show you round!) and you’ll find many family houses as well as a number of two-bedroom properties.

Things to do in Nazeing

Nazeing provides the contrast with London that you may well be needing. A country village with the space, clean air and wildlife you always hoped for; a safe, peaceful spot to raise your family. Enjoy the countryside on foot, by bike or even on horseback; explore the north end of the River Lee (you’re probably familiar with the other end, where it meets the Thames at Bow) with towpath walks, river trips or even kayaking.

Nearby Broxbourne offers larger shops, as well as the Laura Trott leisure centre complete with gym, swimming pool and racquet courts, not to mention a range of fitness classes (Zumba on Thursdays!)

Schools in Nazeing

Nazeing Primary School is located in the village, while the Broxbourne School (my own alma mater) offers secondary education for the area. Both have been identified as “Good” schools by Ofsted.

Commuting between Nazeing and London

Excellent public transport means that London is never that far away. Trains from nearby Broxbourne Station take you to London Liverpool Street in 22 minutes. Broxbourne is a five-minute bus ride away from Nazeing. If you prefer to drive, the station has a car park – either to park daily or save money on parking when you buy a season ticket in advance.

Dockleys in Nazeing – meet Sue Harding

I’m originally from Broxbourne and my colleague Sue Harding, who leads the Essex/Hertfordshire branch, is from Waltham Abbey. We both have excellent local knowledge, and fully understand why people move up and down the River Lee at different stages of their lives. If it’s time to move to Hertfordshire, move with Dockleys – we want you to love the whole area you move to, not just your new home.

To sell your Hertfordshire property or enquire about buying one, call Sue Harding today on 07956 390 227.
