Mill Hill's new family spot: Millbrook Park offers big houses on the site of a former Army barracks

Big houses and good transport links are attracting young families and London's city workers to a new neighbourhood on a former Army barracks.


Bounded by green belt and yet still on the Tube map, Mill Hill is a family favourite for city workers.

With its pond and pubs, the old village stands quiet and imposing at the top of the hill, part of an ancient route called The Ridgeway, off which run the area’s best addresses.

Millbrook Park, a new neighbourhood being built on the site of a bulldozed Army barracks, has a new primary school while a park running through the site is a central green hub, with sloping grassy space and play areas.

Big houses of 2,320sq ft, with integral double garage, four bedrooms and landscaped garden are proving a hit with young families moving out of inner London. Prices from £924,950. Call Cala Homes on 020 8343 4997.
