Research by Mintel shows the nation is putting its best foot forward, as last year sales of trainers outsold high heels in the UK for the first time. With the popularity of Fitbits also soaring, Countryside Annington’s development The Mount, in Mill Hill, is perfect for those who want to get more active in their daily life by travelling on foot rather than by car. The new homes are within walking distance of a station, shops and leisure facilities, ensuring those new trainers get plenty of use.
The Mount is situated in one of the most desirable areas of North London, within the popular Millbrook Park neighbourhood. Surrounded by scenic, communal green areas, landscaped courtyards and two new parks, residents can enjoy a short walk to Mill Hill East Station, from where the Northern Line provides services directly to Central London and beyond, in approximately half an hour. This means that commuters can do without their cars, saving on parking and running costs. Similarly, Millbrook Park Primary school is within walking distance, as well as shops, including a Waitrose to cater for day-to-day needs, ensuring families can get out and about on foot. For those residents who would like to do more exercise, The Virgin Active Health Club is located less than a mile away.
David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside Annington comments: “People that are lucky enough to live within walking distance of the places they go every day, find it easier to build being active into their daily lifestyles. Living at The Mount ticks all of the boxes for those wanting to commute without a car, with a range of amenities on their doorstep. A family could easily manage with just one car between them, saving money and being more environmentally responsible.”
The last remaining collection of homes at the Mount is a range of contemporary three and four-bedroom townhouses set in an elevated position, offering sweeping panoramic views of central London in one direction and Hertfordshire countryside in the other. The stylish homes feature light and airy open-plan living areas, generous master bedrooms and an integrated single or double garage. Every home includes dedicated outdoor spaces such as private gardens, balconies and terraces. Each house features sleek kitchens with white gloss surfaces and fully integrated appliances, contemporary bathrooms and flooring is included throughout.
The Mount boasts an enviable position, with a full range of high street shops and restaurants at Mill Hill Broadway, only two miles away. Brent Cross Shopping Centre is less than four miles away from The Mount and offers an extensive shopping experience. For travelling further afield, The Mount is also conveniently located for travel by car, close to the M1, M25, A1 and North Circular, while Luton Airport is just half an hour drive away.
