Leading global estate agent Knight Frank has found that demand for property in London is at a 10 year high, with November 2021 seeing a 25% increase in offers on the year before, as interest shifts back to the Capital following the pandemic. Conveniently situated in the leafy North London suburb of Enfield, Shanly Homes' new offering of affluent apartments at Uplands Park Place are perfect for those looking to downsize, but stay in London. And, with a brand new show home now open and available to view, the time has never been better for interested Londoners to take the next step in their house-hunting journey.

Christie Alaimo, Sales and Marketing Director at Shanly Homes, comments:"The smart suburb of North London is a very popular area to live - not just for young professionals that commute into the city, but for families and downsizers too. Many homeowners that currently live in the Capital are looking to downsize, but are not ready to leave the Capital just yet. Uplands Park Place is the perfect place for these purchasers. Set in the suburbs of North London on the edge of the green belt, Enfield also has a fantastic high street and great public transport links within walking distance, something that is highly desirable for downsizing buyers."
