The property was built approx. 60 years ago and has the added benefit of a listed timber clad 300 year old detached Tithe barn complete with exposed timbers and a gallery which sits within the grounds.

Historical Note
Monken Hadley Common (often known locally as "Hadley Woods", or simply "Hadley Common") was created - as a common - by the Act of Parliament which enclosed Enfield Chase - the Enfield Chase Act of 1777. Indeed the very name "Monken Hadley Common" derives from, and was first used on, the plan which accompanied the 1777 Act.

Monken Hadley Common is now the only remaining unenclosed fragment of the former Chase, and is situated north of High Barnet, and immediately to the east of ancient country village of Monken Hadley itself. In 1777 it was in the county of Middlesex; in 1889 it became part of Hertfordshire, and since 1965 it has been within the administrative area of the London Borough of Barnet.
