Area Guide 

map of the areas we cover

Brondesbury Park – Brent’s most expensive area which has no doubt benefited from neighbouring West Hampstead and Maida Vale’s spiraling property prices. Brondesbury Park has an extremely large range of properties with many flat conversions and large houses set in impressive surroundings.

Cricklewood - Victorian villas, terraces and standard mid-war semis can all be found between the busy railway lines and the A5 which criss-cross the area. A good location for the first time buyer looking for a Victorian conversion. Central London is only 15 minutes away via Cricklewood station which takes you straight into Kings Cross. top^

Dollis Hill - Dollis Hill offers a up market air and good views across London. Pockets of Edwardian housing can be found around Gladstone Park as well as 1930's semis and a wide choice of modern purpose built apartments. The area has the added benefit of easy accessibility into Central London via the Jubilee Line. top^

Golders Green - Renowned for its strong Jewish community, Golders Green has a wide number of Jewish shops and synagogues. Semi-detached and large detached properties predominate, mostly Edwardian and between war in age and style. The area also offers a good choice of flats and modern apartment blocks skirting the wide and often busy main roads. Brent Cross, with its popular shopping centre, offers cheaper property whilst nearer to Hampstead Garden suburb, prices increase dramatically. top^

Hampstead – Hampstead has a price range to match its glossy image. Property is very mixed yet demand always out strips supply. Modest Victorian terraces can be found to the south of the heath whilst large mansion blocks, many converted into apartments, over look the parkland. top^

Kensal Rise & Harlesden – The area offers many lovely Edwardian and Victorian properties. Public transport into Central London is excellent. The area has prospered recently with an abundance of first time buyers and young professionals who can't afford the sky high prices of Notting Hill and Maida Vale. top^

Maida Vale - Maida Vale boasts a rich stock of flats, big and small, old and new. Many of the large Victorian mansion blocks have sizable communal gardens to the rear. Family houses are rare, although a small number of mews properties are available. top^

Mapesbury – Large red brick Victorian houses with mainly tree lined streets make this area of Willesden one of the most sought after. top^

Neasden - Neasden offers good value housing. Tucked away by the North Circular and the Edgware Road, housing is predominantly mid war semis with a few conversions. What Neasden lacks in character, it makes up for in shopping facilities. Ikea, Brent Cross and Staples Corner all lie within easy reach. Transportation links into Central London are excellent as Neasden is situated on the Jubilee Line. top^

Queens Park & Kilburn - Increasingly popular and only a few short tube stops from the heart of London and the City. A wealth of Victorian terraces and flats are now being bought up by first time buyers and young professionals who can't afford the sky high prices of West Hampstead or North Kensington. Queen's Park commands a higher price tag the closer you get to the park and offers beautiful late Victorian and Edwardian properties. top^

West Hampstead - An abundant supply of Victorian properties from attractive red brick mansion blocks and conversions to well kept two and three bedroom terraces with small gardens. Good transport links both in and out of London and shops to match. A real magnet for young professionals and singles who can't quite afford Hampstead's soaring prices. top^

Willesden & Willesden Green - Transportation into Central London is first-rate and Willesden Green tube station is situated on the Jubilee Line (zone 2) making a journey into Baker Street taking only 10 minutes. Most properties are within a five to ten minute walk from the station. The area offers an abundance of Victorian and Edwardian houses, Victorian and Edwardian terraces and modern developments which all add to the cosmopolitan nature of this metropolitan vicinity.
