Area Guide

Borehamwood is commonly recognised as the home of TV & Film due to the location of the Elstree Film Studios since the 1920s, and more recently, the productions of ‘Eastenders’ and ‘Big Brother’.  The sprawling, mostly residential area was widely developed in the late 1950s, and then another wave in the 80s and 90s saw the further construction of modern, affordable detached and semi-detached properties in ‘The Campions’, ‘Studio Way’, and ‘Kensington Way’.  At the same time, the area in general took an upturn in the form of improved shopping and transport facilities, notably Tesco Extra and the rebuilding of the Thameslink station and bus terminal, as well as the Reel Cinema complex, and the Venue Leisure Centre.  However, the last five years have seen a major regeneration and redevelopment particularly along the ‘Shenley  Road corridor’ with the creation of several stylish and modern apartment blocks and budget hotels, together with improvements to the popular Boulevard retail shopping park which now boasts Debenhams, M&S Food, Next, Costa, Boots, WH Smith, Argos, Outfit and New Look, to name a few.  The high street is now an eclectic mix of the ubiquitous Starbucks and Cafe Nero coffee shops, banks, building societies, small independent shops, a new Library and Community Centre, and towards the bridge that links Elstree, a buzzing cafe culture has become established, as a huge number of eateries are located here.  Homes in the area are a mix of terraced, semi and detached properties, together with maisonettes and flat developments, many bordering or close to Greenbelt.  Borehamwood has always been considered an affordable area for housing, and the addition of extensive shopping, leisure and travel facilities, together with a good selection of places of worship and schools, has ensured its popularity has endured.

  • We just wanted to thank you so much for all your interventions and hard work in selling our house. All the Team worked so hard including Jordan and Casey. You certainly went beyond what is considered normal negotiations with our Buyer, calling in to see her personally when things got a little ‘tricky’ and smoothing the way forward. We really appreciate all your efforts in the sale and also securing our rental in Mill Hill. We will have no hesitation in recommending REAL ESTATES where appropriate, as you are the best, excellent, professional, friendly Team who get results. Again, THANK YOU for all your hard work during this difficult time.

  • I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Tracey and Casey for all your hard work and advice in helping us to get Northiam. Although there is a lot of work to do to the house, we have moved in and plans are almost finalised and actually the place already feels like home. I think it will be an amazing home for us all and we appreciate so much the lengths you all went to in order to make this happen. Tracey deserves a special mention. She put up with me (dealt with me / tolerated me) amazingly well! If she hasn’t had one already, she definitely deserves a huge New Year’s pay rise!

  • I just wanted to drop you a line to commend how professional, courteous and helpful Casey has been throughout the time we searched and rented our property in Lullington Garth.
    Having dealt with many agents when either buying, selling or renting, he has by far been the most decent and diligent and a great ambassador for your company. People are often quick to complain but sometimes less so in giving praise so I thought it would be good to drop you a line.
