As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Moor Park .
History of Moor Park
Moor Park is situated to the north-west, just outside of London, in the Three Rivers District of Hertfordshire. It is 15.5 miles from the centre of London. The area name derives from Moor Park, a country house that was built in 1678-79, for the nobleman, James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth, (1649-1685). He was the first illegitimate son of Charles II, (r. 1660-1685). In 1685, he claimed rights to the throne, to follow his father's Protestantism. Monmouth Scott led an unsuccessful rebellion to depose his uncle, King James II, (r. 1685-1688), who was Catholic. The rebellion failed, and Monmouth was beheaded for treason, in 1685.
Over the centuries, Moor Park Estate passed through the hands of many owners. In 1919, Lord Leverhulme, an industrialist and philanthropist, purchased 3,000 acres of Moor Park, as an investment, and in 1923, it was opened as a golf club. In 1937, Rickmansworth Urban District Council purchased the house, and 350 acres of grounds, to prevent further development, and leased them to the golf club. During World War II, (1939-1945), the mansion was requisitioned. From 1944-1945, it became the headquarters of the 1st Airborne Corps. Allied military operations were planned in the house, including the strategy for the Battle of Arnhem.
Until 1994, the golf club continued to lease the property. They then purchased the freehold from Three Rivers District Council, and the Moor Park Heritage Foundation was set up. Today, Moor Park Golf Club continues to own the house, which is regularly opened to the public for tours. Since 1995, it has been designated a Conservation Area, because of its special architectural, historic and landscape features. This means that there are restrictions on its development.
In 1910, a station called Sandy Lodge opened. It was named after the local Sandy Lodge Golf Course. In 1950, the station was renamed Moor Park. This is the Underground station we know today, on the Metropolitan Line.
The area of Moor Park remains affluent, and is one of the best, for quality of life. Roads within the estate are owned and managed by a private company, acting on behalf of the estate's residents. There is a parade of shops close to the Underground station. Today, Moor Park's population has a high concentration of older people.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Moor Park
I have a friend who is a member of Sandy Lodge Golf Club. It is situated in the landscape of the Moor Park estate. It was a good opportunity to visit, as a guest. The surroundings are lovely, and we had a great game of golf. Afterwards, we enjoyed lunch together, at the club house.
