Hornsey is a Victorian suburb in the London Borough of Haringey. The area is well located in the north of the capital, offering great connections to the centre of the city. The location has an interesting reputation because of its more glamorous neighbours Crouch End, Muswell Hill and Green Wood. The residents that call it home have a much better view.
The most attractive thing about Hornsey is the community feel in the area. The town has a very interesting history with it first being recorded in 1202. In the 1880s the creation of several train stations in nearing areas resulted in a surge in building work in the area. The new Victorian houses turned the location into an established suburb. The community retains its original sense of connection like you get in a town.
Another big advantage of Hornsey is the value it offers. The area has some of the most affordable homes in the North of London, offering particularly impressive savings over the previously mentioned neighbours. There is a good mix of housing with the attractive Victorian homes added to with Edwardian ones and some new builds too.
The area is very well suited for families with a multitude of well regarded schools for various age groups. It is good to plan ahead for schooling if you are moving to the area with a family; subscriptions at the highest rated schools tend to be very high and there can be big competition for places.
Alongside schooling there are many attractive leisure pursuits on offer. Hornsey is home to a huge array of well regarded independent shops. In particular there are a number of fantastic places where you can purchase decorations, antiques and other items for your home. On top of this there has been a big surge in the number and diversity of the dining out options.
