The Reserve is a brand-new development of contemporary 3, 4 and 5 bedroom houses on the boundary of Lea Valley Regional Park just nine minutes’ walk from Waltham Cross High Street. Its dynamic combination of contemporary-style living within idyllic surroundings and excellent amenities is appealing to families looking for a home to satisfy all members.
Built on the site of the old Britannia Nurseries and glasshouses, the 90 new homes are built so residents can enjoy direct access to the park as well as all the amenities of Waltham Cross that includes great schools, an excellent range of shops, plenty of entertainment offerings and a quick commute to the City of London in less than half an hour.
