Cheshunt is a large town in Hertfordshire, just outside of the M25 which encompasses Greater London. It lies only 13 miles North of Central London, and is therefore the closest commuter town to London, with property being very desirable as a result.
Because of its status as a commuter town, property prices are likely to vary according to the particular resident's proximity to main transport links. Properties to the North and South are in the traditional 20th century residential style, with three to four bedrooms and a close proximity to both schools and rail links to the larger city. Looking East or West may yield properties with a rural style, and although transport links remain strong in these areas, living in the district may entail a slightly longer commute to work.
Because of its desirable location, within easy reach of London by strong transport links, property in Cheshunt is likely to retain its worth over a prolonged period of time. Investing in property, either as a buyer or renter is likely to be a wise choice as London expands, and the demand for housing grows ever larger.
