Focus on: Kentish Town

The area has become a popular choice for buyers wanting to be within close proximity of the Heath in Hampstead but whose budgets do not extend to the prices that properties in Hampstead command.

There’s a lot to do in the area. Kentish Town has a buzzing nightlife and music scene thanks, in part, to the popularity of The Forum. A thriving art scene is another big draw. Many galleries and studio are housed there including that of the famous celebrity photographer Rankin.

“The postcode provides good value for money when you bear in mind that properties in Primrose Hill and Belsize Park, which are only a stone’s throw away, cost at least 40 per cent more per square foot,” explains a sales representative from estate agent Oliver’s Town. “The area has recently seen a huge investment from house builders and developers who understand the potential of this part of North West London. Without question, those who buy in NW5 between now and the end of next year will be handsomely rewarded over a 2-3 year period.”
