Elif and Sadik, Our life at New Avenue, Oakwood, revisited

Elif and Sadik's family

For Elif and Sadik, it wasn’t just the location that impressed them at New Avenue. This family of five have been residents of their three-bedroom home at New Avenue for two years and seven months now. Before moving into the area, the family were searching for a location with great schools and plenty of green space, whilst still staying close by to Enfield. The couple were over the moon when they came across their Countryside home and since living there for quite some time, their fondness of the development and Oakwood as an area have grown increasingly.


The quality of the home has continued to be one of things that has impressed them the most about the three-bedroom home they bought with Countryside. We really like the house, it is really good quality, in particular the windows block out all noise and that is really important for us. You can see lots of green in the area from our house which is nice, and we often get a lot of compliments on the design and architecture of the building,” Elif said.


Along with the high-quality homes, Elif and Sadik found that the buying process with Countryside was smooth, quick, and straightforward. The couple have continued to be surprised by the level of service provided by Countryside. We have been extremely happy with our experience. It isn’t just the home that has impressed us, but also the experience with Countryside. It was quick to move in and we have found a good level of customer service and after sales too,” Elif added.


Another reason the couple have been happy with their experience buying at New Avenue, is the people. “We have a lot of friendly neighbours - everyone that lives at New Avenue seems to be friendly,” said Elif. Overall, the couple have been happy with their purchase at New Avenue, and the family would be happy to recommend Countryside.


For Elif and Sadik, the location was the most important factor in their decision to purchase their home in North London. Before we bought, we were going to look all over North London, but we were really swayed by the location,” said Elif. They knew they had made the right decision when they came across New Avenue. “We originally chose the house for its location. It was important for us to have a home that was close to everything we need and close to good schools. The area is also amazing for education,” Elif explained.


The couple, who now have three young children and run their own business together, find that having everything close-by is just what they need with a schedule as hectic as they have. It makes your life easy, and you can save time. Oakwood High Street is just four minutes’ drive away and there is everything you need there. There are plenty of nice restaurants and I can easily do my shopping and park there too. We also have a range of green open spaces and parks close-by. Oakwood Park is just six minutes away and we enjoy spending time there as a family,” Elif added. The couple find it beneficial having Oakwood High Street so close, but also enjoy having the option to head to Enfield High Street, just 17 minutes’ drive away as well. There are a range of amenities in the local area, including gyms, cinemas, and shops.


The travel opportunities also come in handy for the family of five. Elif explained, “We benefit from being so close to two underground stations and that was a major factor in our decision to buy at Newgate Avenue. Oakwood and Southgate tube stations are both just a short walk away, we are in the middle. We can also get to central London easily in just 40 minutes on the Piccadilly line, which can also take us to Heathrow Airport. You can also take the bus from right outside the development as well.
