A walk through the 196 acres of Alexandra Park may have you forgetting that you’re actually still in the heart of North London. This green park, together with the historic Alexandra Palace, has provided an escape for Londoners and attracted millions of tourists since 1863. It’s played host to everything from a Venetian Fete to a Victorian roller coaster, plus an annual fireworks festival enjoyed by tens of thousands. Now there’s an opportunity to invest in property in North London at Alexandra Palace Gardens.
To live or invest in North London, that is the question!
UK developer St William (part of the coveted Berkeley Group) is currently presenting Alexandra Palace Gardens, the latest phase at Clarendon, North London’s new 12-acre city village framed by Alexandra Park, Hornsey and Wood Green.
The scheme sits on five acres of open space and is being transformed into a 12-acre cultural quarter. Over the next ten years, Clarendon will deliver 1,714 homes with balconies, pocket parks, striking water features, abundant residents’ facilities and easy transport links into Central London. An array of lifestyle and retail amenities will offer plenty of opportunities for both businesses and entrepreneurs to flourish.
Launch of a new phase
The latest phase to be launched is the 8-storey launch Beeley Mansion which offers a selection of 40 suites consisting of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. Each of these impeccably designed residences has its own private outdoor space, with 3-side views of pocket parks. The apartments overlook (and provides direct access to) the landscaped Hornsey Park with its central water feature.

The landscape architects LDA Design wanted to create a space where residents could hear birdsong and pick apples from a tree. They envisaged residents feeling enveloped by the rich planting that is informed by local ancient woodland and changes with the seasons. And their vision was to create connectivity between residents, making it easy to meet neighbours, play and exercise.
In short, Alexandra Palace Gardens is designed to provide a perfect backdrop for enjoying a lazy Sunday coffee or sundowners by the water’s edge.
The development forms part of Clarendon’s new city village with a park at its heart – it will doubtless be a popular choice for those who want to invest in North London.
