Kilburn has a long, interesting history and is very popular with families due to the opportunities to up or downsize. Getting started on the property ladder in the area is possible with recent listings showing far more flats and apartments available than larger homes. Those looking for the latter properties can find two and three storey Victorian houses or even larger Edwardian ones in the Mapesbury conservation area.
You can spot signs of the history throughout Kilburn. The town originally came to life because it was on an ancient Anglo-Saxon road connecting Canterbury and St. Albans. This route is now the A5 and provides good connections to Central London and the north.
There are fine historic buildings all across Kilburn. Victorian stucco villas are very attractive and sit just a short distance from the main route through town. St. Augustine’s Church is a Grade I listed building that was the third largest in London when it was completed in 1880. A memorial to animals killed in war and a chapel built from corrugated iron are other outstanding landmarks.
The transport links on offer in Kilburn have helped to make it really attractive. As mentioned the A5 is a main route into the city and buses run day and night into Victoria and Oxford Circus. On top of this there are two tube lines to choose from; Kilburn Park (Bakerloo) and Kilburn Tube (Jubilee).
Residents have plenty of leisure options to choose from in the area. There is open space at local parks, including the award winning Woodhouse Urban Park. Outdoor sports are catered for at several sites, primarily Paddington Recreational Ground. On top of this Kilburn town centre has shops, restaurants, bars, and venues.
All of the above makes Kilburn one of the most popular areas in the London Borough of Brent, attractive to buyers and renters too. If you are thinking about investment the affordable prices and potential for growth should be considered.
