"The Changing Face of a Suburb"

Since the sell off of the public housing stock Chigwell has improved dramatically. The area is now considered to be a mix between lower and middle class people. It is an now area where cheap housing allows families to afford a better lifestyle with fresh mountain air and bushy surrounds without having to give up the opportunities that city living gives.

It is a great place to live with a real community feel. It has all the basic ammenties needed with other shopping and entertainment needs only a few kilometres away.
Pros
  • Community feel
  • Family Friendly
  • Great place for a Tree change
Cons
  • Public Transport
  • Crime problems
Recommended for
  • Families with kids
  • Retirees
  • Country Lovers
