Radlett has always been considered an affluent and prosperous town, and its proximity to North West London makes it all the more desirable, whilst it retains its semi-rural qualities.
Dating back to pre-Roman times (indeed Watling Street, the main thoroughfare running through the village was built by the Romans to connect Scotland), Radlett is surrounded by Greenbelt, and generally comprises a compact area of intricately woven residential streets and paths, with an extraordinary mix of individually styled properties. Predominantly Radlett is renowned for its magnificent, detached character houses – very often set in their own grounds, or at the very least, with substantial gardens. In addition, many other styles of property include original and refurbished cottages, pre-war semi detached houses, luxury flat developments, and running parallel to the village centre, several streets sporting spacious Victorian semis and terraces. Around a mile out of central Radlett, the prestigious and award-winning Wall Hall development built by Octagon around a decade ago, has contributed to the heightened property levels that are always achieved in the area. Radlett’s popularity is also due to the upscale shopping and restaurant concourse running through the heart of the village, which boasts a selection of boutiques, delis, and cafes, alongside the modern Radlett Centre that hosts many productions, shows, and touring acts. Furthermore, a superb selection of primary and senior schools are located in the vicinity, together with several golf clubs, equestrian, cricket, bowling and tennis facilities. Thameslink station provides easy access to St Pancras and the City in the south, and Luton to the north, whilst the A1, A41, M1 and M25 are all within a short drive.
