Set within 413 acres of parkland, Trent Park – a former royal hunting ground in north London – is steeped in history. Its focal point is the Grade II listed Mansion House, once home to Phillip Sassoon. Following Sassoon’s death, the War Office requisitioned the house and after the war, the estate became a training college before becoming part of Middlesex University. Berkeley Homes purchased the site in 2015, and are redeveloping it to provide over 250 homes, set in 56 acres of captivating natural historic grounds.
The Walled Garden is located to the south of the original stable block and is one of the last phases to be delivered. 20 two, four and five-bedroom family houses sit within the original walls. With roofs that feature a distinctive, asymmetric pitch onto the street, the houses are grouped into short terraces, and arranged around a communal garden backing onto the original walls and the retained Gardener’s Cottage.
An east-west route connects to the famous, restored Wisteria Walk, which leads down to the lake with its breathtaking scenery and access to extensive woodland.
