A Home Counties style village in a London suburb

At Finefair we appreciate everyone is looking for something different in terms of the area where they want to live. Some people love greenery and open space. Others prefer to be right in the middle of the city where they have lots of amenities. We can look after properties in all of these locations. In fact we offer some of the very best services for our clients. This includes the most reliable council leasing Barnet has.

A rare thing to find in London is a Home Counties style village within commutable distance to the city centre. This is exactly what you get in Arkley. This Barnet village is very popular because of the affluent feel and abundance of open green space. In fact it has more Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation than anywhere else in the Borough. There are nine in total.

The space gives the area a really private feel. In addition there are a number of important landmarks. One of the most famous is Arkley Windmill. It is almost 200 years old and has a Grade II* listing. St Peter’s Church and The Gate Inn are also iconic buildings.

The property ladder

Arkley is a great area for families. It has some really great local schools and a low crime rate. In addition there are lots of choices in terms of housing. As a result it appeals to large and small families alike.

There are some really great homes to rent in the area, including some in catchments for the best schools. Expect to pay around £830 a week on average for a three bed home.

Buyers have a huge amount of choice. There are modern terraces perfect for first time buyers. The next steps on the ladder could be to semi and detached four and five bedroom homes. There are also a number of private gated communities. At the top of the market there are manors and luxury new builds with prices in the millions.

If you are looking to buy, especially as an investment, Finefair can help. We have a lot of experience managing portfolios of properties. We can offer several services, including the best council leasing Barnet has available. Therefore, rely on us if you need support.
