Have you always dreamed of the detached house with the white picket fence and uncrowded schools just a hop and skip away down a cobbled country road? If so, you might be having visions of Epping.
Epping is a thriving market town with a strong sense of community and a modest population of around 12,000.
Set in the leafy confines of the Epping Forest district at the distant end of the Underground central line, Epping showcases the best of both worlds.
On the one hand you have London’s largest area of open spaces, full of green fields that are perfect for outdoor activities and long weekend walks.
At the same time you’ve also good fantastic transport links with an underground station in zone six and a handful of other nearby stations on the Metropolitan line.
Quite a few famous faces have graced the town at one time or another, including singer Rod Stewart, actress Sheridan Smith, TV presenter Ben Shephard and Britain’s most famous war time prime minister and former MP, Winston Churchill.
Some main highlights include:
Gateway between the capital and the countryside – for centuries Epping was a busy coaching town and continues that tradition today with excellent connections to the capital
Varied housing stock – A diverse range of properties from period cottages to modern houses and flats
Family friendly – Good value and spacious family homes with excellent schools attraction families to the area.

As you might expect for a town with so much going for it, prices are a tad on the expensive side.
The average price for property in Epping is just shy of £600,000 as of March 2019, although prices have remained consistent over the past couple of years.
Epping has a varied housing with a huge range of styles from Victorian and Edwardian terraces to historic cottages and new build apartments perfect for first-time buyers.
The range of different properties on offer means that people can easily move up and down the housing ladder but stay in the area.
In terms of property styles, flats typically sell for around £360,000 but terraced homes are the most popular, selling for an average of £465,000.
Although homes in the town centre are expensive they are still cheaper than many areas of London and offer much better value for money in terms of space and investment.
Coopersale Street, Theydon Road and Tawney Common are the most affluent areas and property prices on one of these streets begin at around £1,542,000.
For more affordable homes, you may want to consider purchasing an ex council house. Former council houses in and around Coronation Hill are now selling for upwards of £350,000 and are highly sought after.
There is not a huge choice of schools in Epping itself, although there is a wider variety on offer throughout the whole of the Epping Forest District.
All the schools in the centre are of a ‘good’ standard, according to education regulator, Ofsted. They include:
St John’s Church of England Voluntary Controlled School is the only secondary school in Epping and is now designated as a specialist Engineering College.
Other schools in Epping include Coopersale Hall School a leading independent prep school for girls and boys aged between 3 and 11.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate reported a high quality of teaching and academic attainment. The report read: “The pupils demonstrate high levels of concentration and apply themselves readily to the tasks set.”
Epping is a thriving market town with lots of local clubs and societies. One of its most famous markets is North Weald Market, a huge outdoor hard-standing Market located on the
North Weald Airfield. The Market has over 150 stalls selling a huge range of products, food and clothing.
Of course one of the standout attractions of the Epping Forest District is the forest itself. Designated as ‘Green Belt’ it incorporates two historic forests – Epping Forest and Hainault Forest.
Once reserved for royal hunting, these ancient woodlands offer a variety of settings and wildlife. They are perfect for casual walks, with cycle paths and a boating lake for those wanting to relax in the company of nature.
For a touch of retail therapy head to the nearby Epping Forest Shopping Park. With over 90,000 sq ft of retail space it houses some of the best-known high street retailers, including ALDI, TK Maxx, JD Sports, Next, Smyths Toys, Mothercare, Card Factory, Home Bargains and others.
For history and aviation fans, a visit to the North Weald Airfield Museum is well worth your time. Situated in the village of North Weald the station started military flight operations for the Royal Flying Corps in 1916 lasting until1958.
