Area Guide

The peaceful village of Elstree dates back to the early 1700s and in essence, covers a relatively small area tucked inside the wedge created by the A1 and A41, and bordered by Borehamwood.  Properties in the area comprise ‘closes’ and cul-de-sacs off smaller roads, which in turn are located off the square encompassing Allum Lane, Deacons Hill Road, Barnet Lane and Elstree Hill North.  Homes in these roads tend to be spacious semi-detached, and larger detached properties with extensive rear gardens, as well as stylish townhouses, several luxury apartment blocks, older flat developments, and maisonettes.  Elstree is particularly noted for several Grade II Listed properties, especially among the grander estates located on Barnet Lane and the private road, Barham Avenue.  Much of Elstree is surrounded by Greenbelt, farmland and golf links, and to the south, Aldenham Reservoir and Country Park provides a scenic and semi-rural border, with the renowned Elstree Aerodrome on its cusp.  The picturesque and secluded Tudor-style Laura Ashley Hotel is hidden away among acres of delightful woodland off Barnet Lane, and there are several notable Nursing Homes, golf clubs, equestrian centres, and places of worship within the area.  Strictly speaking there are only a couple of convenience shops, two restaurants and a chemist at the Elstree Hill junction, but Elstree enjoys all the diverse shopping and transport facilities at nearby Borehamwood.  The A1, A41,and M25 are easily accessible, and the Elstree & Borehamwood Thameslink station over the bridge provides a 15 minute service to Luton in the north, St Pancras in the south, and onwards to Gatwick and Brighton.

  • Dear Casey, my husband and I would like to thank you for your kindness and your efficiency. We highly recommend you for your professionalism. We wish you the most successful pursuit in your career with Real Estates, which you have indeed represented very well.

  • It’s a big relief to get the exchange done and dusted. We have bought and sold a fair number of flats and houses over the years and I’d like to say that I have never worked with an agent as efficient, canny, courteous and smart as you. I doubt this would have happened without your dogged persistence and we’re both very grateful to you.

  • I’m well aware of the efforts you and your team made not only to obtain a sale, but to assist me with a tricky situation. Lock down. Distance. Disrepair. A mess. Clearance.
    Your friendly, supportive, professional service knew no bounds. I’m only too well aware that you went way beyond the call of duty. Words are inadequate to express my gratitude to you, Casey and Tracey. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have you as part of our lives, albeit temporarily.

  • 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!
