Dr Ming in her new home at Hendon Waterside - case study


Clean air, less noise and lakeside views just 20 minutes from central London.

A spacious home with unobstructed lake views is nearly impossible to find in London, yet Dr Ming discovered just that at her new home in Hendon Waterside – a Barratt London development overlooking the Welsh Harp in West Hendon.

“The apartment itself is a very good size and there’s plenty of space for my friends and family to stay when they come over to visit from China. What’s more it’s very easy for them to get here as Hendon is just a 30-minute drive from Luton and Heathrow airports.”

Dr Ming, aged 65, moved to London from China at the age of 35 and has since spent time living in various areas in north London, finally choosing to settle in Hendon, where she owns and runs her clinic.

“I’ve found that Hendon offers the best of both worlds, a quiet suburban atmosphere and a quick route into central London.

“The view from my new apartment is wonderful, I don’t think you can find views like that anywhere else in London. In the day time you have a beautiful view over the Welsh Harp towards Wembley Stadium and at night you can see all the lights of the London skyline.”

Dr Ming walks to work and enjoys the host of leisure activities on offer in Hendon.

“There’s a leisure centre 10-minutes’ drive away where I play badminton several times a week and I also enjoy going to the theatre and cinema. For anything I can’t find really nearby I can get into central London in just 20 minutes from Hendon railway station, which is 10 minutes’ from Hendon Waterside.

“My clinic is very near Hendon underground station, which is about 20 minutes’ walk from my apartment. My new home is also within a 10-minute drive from several supermarkets, including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer, and then there’s the Brent Cross shopping centre which is about to get even bigger.”

Designed by Allies and Morrison, Hendon Waterside is a flagship regeneration development of over 2,000 one, two and three-bedroom homes, many with a private terrace or balcony, offering lakeside living just 30 minutes from central London.
