Drawing on its extensive experience of developing in Cheshunt, award-winning house builder Crest Nicholson is launching the first phase of its new development, Sovereign Gate, this coming weekend.

Located on the outskirts of Goff’s Oak – a particularly sought after part of Cheshunt, Sovereign Gate will comprise two and three-bedroom cottages and four-bedroom family houses. Intended to fulfil the demands of a broad range of local purchasers, the properties will appeal to first-time buyers looking for their first home, upsizers seeking more space, as well as downsizers who want the benefits of a low maintenance new build home.

As a sympathetic scheme set amidst beautiful open countryside, Sovereign Gate will offer an array of property types designed to complement traditional architectural styles. Drawing on the local Cheshunt vernacular, homes will feature gables, red brick and white weatherboarding, creating a sense of evolution in design and enabling the homes to integrate seamlessly into their surroundings.

Each property at Sovereign Gate will be defined by the high-specification architecture and design that is synonymous with Crest Nicholson. With thoughtfully planned internal layouts arranged to accommodate the changing demands of daily life, each home can adapt depending on need.

High-end kitchens boast stylish worktops and integrated Bosch appliances for a sleek finish, creating the optimum environment in which to cook up a storm, while contemporary white bathroom suites emulate hotel bathrooms in style.

Continuing the intelligent floor plans, bedrooms are generously proportioned, with master suites offering fitted wardrobes and en suite bath / shower rooms. 

To enhance the development’s aesthetics, landscaping will form a key component of development, while open public space, tree lined boulevards, a pond and a children’s play area will help to create a sense of identity. Bat roosts and bird boxes will be installed throughout the mature trees to support natural wildlife, while additional tree planting will be completed to sustain biodiversity on site.

‘Homezones’ will be installed giving right of way to pedestrians and cyclists, while footpaths and cycle paths ensure safety and connectivity throughout the development.

Cheshunt is equipped with an array of amenities, including a local high street and also the Brookfield Centre for shopping; for additional choice, residents can visit St Albans or Westfield at Stratford. Goff’s Oak also offers an excellent local pub, while Cheshunt is also home to an array of gastropubs and acclaimed restaurants,

Leisure opportunities are available in abundance too, with Lee Valley Park, which offers green space, heritage sites, country parks, family farms and nature reserves just on the doorstep.

Growing and established families will benefit from the excellent selection of local schools – including the four primary schools and three secondary schools located within a mile of the development.

The local transport network is well established, with the A10 close by and the M25 a short distance away. Cheshunt Station is approximately two miles away and provides direct links into Liverpool Street in just 23 minutes and to Stratford in 24 minutes.

Annette Cole, Sales and Marketing Director, Crest Nicholson Eastern, comments: “Sovereign Gate has provided the opportunity for us to draw on our insight and experience from developing in Cheshunt. In turn, this has enabled us to deliver homes that are tailored to reflect the demands of the local market.

“We have designed Sovereign Gate to offer more than just a series of properties, but a thriving community too, and we will continue to work in partnership with the local community to cultivate to ensure social integration with the local area.

“With excellent transport links connecting the development to London and the South East, we’re anticipating interest from many commuters looking for a rural retreat that remains in easy reach of the capital.”

Currently available at Sovereign Gate are four-bedroom houses priced from £580,000. For further information or to register your interest visit: or 01277 693 265.
