Canons Park in Harrow is a well established commuter and retiree suburb in Harrow, North West London. The area has a very interesting history and quite a diverse housing stock. Demand for homes is good, attracting people because of the wonderful open spaces. The local Tube station is on the Jubilee Line, making it easy to commute to Central London and on to Canary Wharf.
The name of the area comes from the landowners who were granted six acres of land in the area in 1331. This became the site of a palatial mansion around 1718 but the property didn’t last. In less than thirty years it was replaced by a smaller home. Incredibly the original colonnade was relocated to Trafalgar Square and now sits in front of the National Gallery.
Neighbouring land around the mansion was developed after 1929. The development created an array of different sized properties, ranging from modest semi-detached houses to larger mansions. The success of the estate was secured when the railway arrived in 1932.
Harrow Council, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, invested in preserving the open space in Canons Park in 2006/07. Most importantly they worked to preserve 18th century features, including two lakes. The park itself is Grade II listed.
The area itself may be lacking in leisure attractions other than the open space but this gives it a peaceful feel. Fortunately Edgware is around a mile away or just a ten minute bus trip. There are far more attractions here including the indoor shopping Broadwalk Centre.
As prices in city centre locations in London have risen suburban areas have become more popular. Canons Park has plenty to offer and is worth looking at if you are considering an investment in this part of North London.
