Often referred to as London’s Beverly Hills, this historic village is home to some of the most exclusive properties in the capital. It’s situated only 10miles north of Central London but the surrounding countryside tells a different story. This green belt land offers a slice of rural seclusion without being too far from the city’s attractions.

Much of the development is clustered around St Andrew’s Church which is home to one of London’s oldest trees – thought to be around 1,000 to 2,000 years old. It’s symbolic of Totteridge which has managed to preserve much of its historic character. Few neighbourhoods in London are kept so well-manicured where community spaces compliment the attractive mansions which occupy Totteridge Lane, all the way through to Totteridge Common.

In keeping with the tranquil setting, the village isn’t home to any shops, but The Orange Tree pub takes pride of place overlooking a duck pond. It’s the nearby village of Whetstone that provides a pleasant shopping experience. A selection of leading retailers can be found including Waitrose which sits alongside independent boutiques and laidback eateries.

In an area renowned for the great outdoors, Totteridge offers no shortage of sports facilities. The local tennis club is popular with residents, not to mention the historic course at The South Herts Golf Club. More laidback pursuits can be enjoyed in the many parks and the Dorris Valley Green Walk promises scenic views along a 10-mile country circuit.

 

Transportation in Totteridge

Despite the rural character of Totteridge, residents enjoy a speedy commute into Central London. Totteridge & Whetstone tube station serves the local community with services every few minutes along on the Northern Line. Alternatively, Oakleigh Park is the closest railway station which sits on the Great Northern Route. Direct trains depart to Moorgate, London Kings Cross and Welwyn Garden City.

Situated within the commuter belt, Totteridge is just as convenient for those travelling by car. The M25 can be reached in under 15minutes, while the M1 is accessible in approximately eight minutes. This gives reassurance for those travelling across London, as well as other major cities to the north. The closest airport is London Luton, followed by Heathrow International. Both can be reached in under 40minutes.

 

Primary and secondary schools in Totteridge

Totteridge is home to an excellent choice of both state and private schools. St Andrew’s CofE is the local primary which is judged ‘good’ by the government watchdog Ofsted. Given the impressive results at Key Stage 2, it’s a popular choice and often oversubscribed.

The nearby secondary schools offer a similar appeal with both the nearby grammar schools judged as ‘outstanding; Queen Elizabeth’s caters for boys, while Henrietta Barnett in Hampstead Garden Suburb caters for girls. Alternatively, parents have the choice between two Catholic and two Jewish comprehensive schools. St Michael’s for girls is judged outstanding by Ofsted, while Finchley Catholic for boys is judged ‘good’. Hasmonean High is another ‘outstanding’ school and coeducational for pupils aged 11 to 18.

Finally, there is a handful of top performing and highly sought-after private establishments within the catchment area. These include Mill Hill for those aged 3 to 18, Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls in Elstree and Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School in Borehamwood.

 

History of Totteridge

The village’s history can be traced back to the 12th century when the area was known as ‘Taderege’. Thought to have been named after a man called ‘Tata’, the second part ‘ridge’ undoubtedly refers to the settlement’s proud location on a 400-foot crest.

The area has long held a reputation amongst the affluent residents of London. Records suggest that royalty frequented the area including Edward I in 1305, and Cardinal Manning was born here in 1808. Despite the handful of discerning residents, it wasn’t until the opening of the Great Northern Railway Station in 1872 that Totteridge became accessible to all.

Newly built Victorian mansions catered to the growing population of rich and famous. Later the area would be designated a Conservation Area which only added to the sense of exclusivity. Although some developments have been permitted in recent years, green belt restrictions continue to preserve the character and integrity of Totteridge.

Anscombe & Ringland is now Chancellors.

In December 2017, London’s local estate agent, Anscombe & Ringland Totteridge, excitedly announced that it would soon be known as Chancellors Totteridge. The aim of the change was to unite all the brands of the Chancellors Group of Estate Agents under one brand. This enabled us to focus our resources and efforts on a single entity and maximise the support and exposure of all our services for the benefit of customers and clients.

Anscombe & Ringland always had the support and resources of the Chancellors Group, one of the largest independent estate agents in the UK. Being a member of this group formed part of Anscombe & Ringland’s unique marketing strategy, which included a far-reaching network of over 50 branches and 700 other associated agents and a prominent presence both online and on the high street.

This meant that Anscombe & Ringland had access to a considerable database of buyers and tenants which has helped them achieve record results across the region over the years.

If you previously enjoyed the service provided by Anscombe & Ringland Totteridge, you can be assured that it’s only the name we have changed, and you will receive the same great service from Chancellors Totteridge.
