Research has shown that downsizing is once again on the up, accounting for nearly 15% of all house moves, a rise of almost 10% in the last five years.

Research has shown that downsizing is once again on the up, accounting for nearly 15% of all house moves, a rise of almost 10% in the last five years.[1] The study by Strutt & Parker also found that a lower maintenance property is the main priority for a third of all downsizers. The new townhouses currently available at The Mount, Countryside Annington’s new homes development in Mill Hill, London NW7, are perfect for buyers looking to downsize their properties and reduce their maintenance obligations, without compromising on style or location.

The Mount is situated in one of the most desirable areas of North London, within the popular Millbrook Park neighbourhood. Set in an elevated position with sweeping views, a range of contemporary three and four-bedroom luxury townhouses are perfect for downsizers. With scenic views from private terraces, and the homes benefitting from access to communal green areas, landscaped courtyards and two new parks, residents are able to enjoy the outside space without the upkeep.

David Everett, Managing Director of Countryside Annington comments: “Many downsizers worry they will have to compromise on space, but this is not the case at The Mount.  The new build homes offer lower maintenance and luxurious living accommodation with a selection of outdoor private spaces where residents will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the views over London.”

The luxurious homes have been meticulously designed to provide a seamless balance between indoor living and inviting outdoor space. The ground floor benefits from open plan living areas with fully glazed double doors to maximise natural light and bring the outdoors in, as well as an integrated garage.


All of the townhouses boast an excellent specification including sleek kitchens with white gloss surfaces and fully integrated appliances, contemporary bathrooms and flooring included throughout. A range of energy saving and eco features such as photovoltaic panels and a heat recovery system make the homes as environmentally sustainable and economical, as they are luxurious.

The Mount boasts an enviable position, with a full range of high street shops and restaurants at Mill Hill Broadway, only two miles away. Brent Cross Shopping Centre is less than four miles away from The Mount and offers an extensive shopping experience.

A new footpath through the development will put Mill Hill East tube station within easy walking distance, from where the Northern Line provides services directly to Central London and beyond, in around half an hour. The Mount is also conveniently located for travel by car or public transport. By road, The Mount is close to the M1, M25, A1 and North Circular, while Luton Airport is just half an hour drive away.
