Countryside launches Edge in Hainault, a brand new development offering the best of both worlds

Edge CGI

Award-winning developer Countryside has now launched a brand-new neighbourhood – Edge - a luxury new development in Hainault.

Located on Manford Way in Hainault, Edge marks a significant milestone for regeneration in the area. Set to become a new sustainable neighbourhood, this exciting new development will breathe fresh life into the town centre, redeveloping a previously underutilised site and providing high-quality new homes and attractive new public realm, with a striking sense of identity.

Situated on the outskirts of London yet surrounded by countryside, Edge represents a rare opportunity to benefit from everything the city has to offer as well as taking advantage of the plethora of woodland and parkland on the doorstep.

Once complete, Edge will deliver a stylish collection of one, two and three bedroom homes, offering its residents the very best of both worlds.

Urban location surrounded by stunning greenspace

Hainault itself boasts a selection of everyday amenities including a Tesco Express, Lloyds bank and a Post Office, moments from the development. A short drive away is the town of Chigwell, which offers aselection of bars and restaurants with a variety of world cuisines as well as dog-friendly pubs and gastro eateries.

Culture and world-class shopping are also easily accessible, via the nearby tube, where residents can immerse themselves in everything London has to offer - from renowned museums and large shopping centres to a vibrant nightlife.

For nature lovers, Hainault enjoys a privileged location on the doorstep of picturesque woodlands and parks. Just over a mile away from Edge, Hainault Forest Country Park offers a variety of walking trails, a café, small animal farm as well as a boating and fishing lake for everyone to enjoy. Close by Fairlop Waters Country Park features the largest boulder park in the UK, offering a climbers’ paradise, and for those who love the water, sailing, rowing and windsurfing are available on the park’s large lake.

Unrivalled connectivity – best of both worlds

Living at Edge, residents will enjoy excellent transport connections - whether travelling by foot, bike, car or train, everyday amenities are within easy reach. Both Hainault and Grange Hill underground stations (central line) are under a mile away providing access to Stratford in 20 minutes and London Liverpool Street in 30 minutes. In addition, residents can access numerous bus routes within a two-minute walk from the development. For those travelling further afield, London City Airport is accessible in 40 minutes by car, as well as the M11 and M12 providing routes to Essex, Stansted and Cambridge.

Modern architecture and interiors

Designed to contrast the surrounding area, the two-tone brick work of Edge will give this new neighbourhood a striking sense of identity.

Creating a beautifully designed community of modern homes, transforming the Hainault high-street, the range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments will benefit from spacious apartment layouts which have been carefully crafted to ensure flexible living spaces fit for modern lifestyles. Each apartment boasts high-specification and stylish interiors with the very latest integrated appliances and luxury flooring  designed to stand the test of time. To maximise the space, each apartment will boast built-in wardrobes and cleverly placed storage cupboards encompassing the quality, convenience and low maintenance of a new build property.

With outdoor space growing increasingly popular - especially in recent years - each of the homes will boast their own private balcony as well as access to a beautifully landscaped central courtyard garden where people can relax, socialise and play. What’s more, the regeneration of Staggart Green adjacent to Edge, will improve the surrounding area and enhance the streetscape for the residents and the local community.

Education on the doorstep

Perfect for families, Edge is surrounded by a selection of nurseries, primary and secondary schools with Hainault Forest Community Day Nursery located next to the site and Manford Primary School almost opposite. For students, Hainault is just a tube journey away from some of London’s most prestigious universities including Imperial College, University College London and the London School of Economics.

Chris Bladon, Managing Director, Eastern Home Counties, Countryside, says:

Edge is set to bring a new and exciting offering to Hainault, providing brand-new modern homes to the community, which will contribute to the transformation of the high-street.

“With access to greenspace increasingly in demand, residents will benefit from both private and communal outside space whilst also being surrounded by beautiful parks and nature reserves. Offering the best of both worlds, the development is ideally located on the outskirts of London and served by the central tube line.”
