Moor Park, Hertfordshire

Moor Park, Hertfordshire

Moor Park is a private residential estate in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire. It takes its name from Moor Park, a country house which was originally built in 1678–9 for James, Duke of Monmouth, and was reconstructed in the Palladian style circa 1720 by Giacomo Leoni. The house and grounds are now occupied by Moor Park Golf Club.

The surrounding neighbourhood consists mostly of upscale houses, some dating back to the original 1930s developments. Moor Park has large Jewish and Asian communities, and many homeowers commute to London via Moor Park tube station on the Metropolitan Line of the London Underground.
