Silkstream, a St George’s development in zone 3 with North London’s most desirable school network

Introducing a beautifully landscaped new development in a parkland neighbourhood. Silkstream by St George is situated between Brent Cross and Wembley. Excellent local stores, cafes, restaurants, and a wealth of green, open spaces are all available in this vibrant area of north London. One of the largest retail centres in the UK, Brent Cross, is close by, and King’s Cross and the centre of London, with all it has to offer, are accessible via the Thameslink in 19 minutes^. The development is also situated in the Borough of Barnet and provides a wide range of educational possibilities for students of all ages, abilities, religions, and interests.

The new construction will include a chic selection of Suites, 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments located within exquisitely manicured gardens that are intended to promote biodiversity and make wellbeing a natural part of life.


Excellent educational opportunities for every age

For homebuyers and buy-to-let investors, education is a decisive factor. Barnet has more primary and secondary schools that have received an “excellent” rating from OFSTED than any other London borough, with 96% of schools that OFSTED assessed as outstanding or good. Just 15 miles away are Queenswood and Harrow, two of the top-ranked schools in the UK and one of the top 3 modern institutions in the UK, Middlesex University, is close by. Barnet has proved to be popular among families with school age children.

Well-connected with plenty of transport options

Silkstream is perfectly placed to make the most of London’s transport links with a Northern Line Underground Station (Hendon Central) and a Thames link Railway Station (Hendon Station) close by. It’s a quick 19 minute^ journey to Kings Cross, London’s new technology hub, 33 minutes^ to London Bridge where the City is. Heathrow Airport is also 34 minutes^ away. Access to first-rate road links is also very convenient – the M1, the A5 and the North Circular, offer transport routes into and out of London.

Parks and green spaces on your doorstep

In Barnet, there are over 200 green spaces and plenty of ways to spend your time in the nature and get cultured. One of the largest lakes in London, Welsh Harp Reservoir, also known as Brent Reservoir, offers a wide variety of water activities. The Royal Air Force Museum, which is housed in five buildings and hangars on the site of the former Hendon Aerodrome, features exhibits on the development of aviation and the Royal Air Force.

In the heart of North London’s regeneration schemes

With Brent Cross and Cricklewood to the south and Colindale and Mill Hill to the north, Silkstream is at the centre of two of North London’s most significant regeneration projects. CBRE forecasted that property’s capital values will be increased 24.4% in capital values over the next five years – the highest of any London borough. There is also a 17.7% forecasted growth in rental values over the next five years – the joint-highest of any London borough. The developer St George, part of the Berkeley Group, has a proven track record of delivering quality developments. We are confident that Silkstream will be on the right track of growth as professional tenants working in the City are always looking for apartments to rents with a commute of a little more than 30 mins, in line with the current demand of the area.

A contemporary urban lifestyle

Amenities in the area also make it friendly for professionals and families. A flagship 43,000 sq. ft. Sainsbury’s supermarket within the Silkstream development will offer high quality and great value produce and food, in addition to bakery good as well as home products. An Argo will also be in the store to satisfy all your gadget needs. Outside of the development, North West London’s premier shopping centre, Brent Cross is the stylish home to over 120 fashion, beauty and lifestyle stores, and over 30 restaurants. The Bang Bang Oriental Foodhall is the newest and largest Asian food court in London, boasting the widest range of specialist Asian restaurants in the whole of UK. All these are withing easy reach from Silkstream, meaning all your everyday needs will be satisfied with ease.

Silkstream provides a way of life that balances the finest of the city with the advantages of nature for your health, whether it be a sunrise yoga class, a sunset stroll, or a workout in the state-of-the-art gym. The development boasts also a 1.4-acre residents only landscaped gardens, two private screening rooms, a concierge and a co-working area looking over the 1.5-acre public park.

Each Silkstream apartment is finished to an incredibly high standard, and come with a balcony. Prices of suites, 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments start at £ 432,000*, with completion expected in Q4 2024.
