Barnet has the honour of being the most populated Borough in the whole of London. Although it is home to some 370,000 people, and regeneration is creating approximately 27,000 new homes within the next 15 years, the area is still green and has a great community feel.
Most of the new developments are located in areas like Colindale, Brent Cross, and Cricklewood. This has helped to preserve numerous parts of the Borough, including the leafy streets in Barnet itself.
The great thing about the area is that it has an immensely diverse stock of homes. We know this all too well as the leading provider of block management Barnet residents can call on. You can find cottages, eye-catching Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian homes with original architectural features, housing from the 20s and 30s, and modern flats and developments too. As a result there is something for every taste.
Perhaps not surprisingly homes near the local stations are the most sought-after. High Barnet station opened in 1850 and inspired the creation of several roads of fine Victorian terraces and a smaller number of semi-detached properties. Hadley Wood, an enclave to the north of the town, received a train station in 1885. Again it led to the creation of beautiful homes, including double fronted Victorian and Edwardian properties. Later developments produced more contemporary mansions and detached homes.
High Barnet station originally opened in 1872 and retains many of its fine Victorian features. Of the three it is the only one on the London Underground. This, combined with the rows of period semi-detached and terraced homes, makes the area very popular.
The property scene in the Borough translates to great staying power. Families tend to live in the area for generations, moving up and down the property ladder as they go. This is a big part of the community feel.
