Hornsey in the London Borough of Haringey is a well regarded Victorian suburb that is becoming increasingly popular. The original village dates back to 1202 and remained rural for over 600 years. The arrival of the railways in the 1880s triggered the development. Seven stations opened throughout the local area, bringing an influx of people and leading to the creation of new housing. Rows of these Victorian and Edwardian terraces make up a large part of the current stock.
The history of the area is captured in the wonderful architecture. There are plenty of noteworthy properties in this regard, including St. Mary’s church, the Railway Tavern, and Hornsey Library (the latter are both Grade II listed).
The area is cosmopolitan today and has a fantastic community feel. There are a number of attractive independent businesses catering for the needs of residents. From vintage clothes to a florist, cafes, delicatessens, and pubs, there are plenty of attractions. On top of this the local station is on the Great Northern line, offering overground trains to Islington and Moorgate. This is great for commuting and also gives people access to more attractions and leisure facilities.
Families are drawn to Hornsey for the cosmopolitan feel as well as the good local schools. There is a popular Steiner school for young children, a well regarded primary, a secondary school for girls, and a mixed gender academy with a technology specialism.
With so much to offer it is no surprise that the area is popular with buyers and renters alike. At Finefair we provide a wide array of services across the Borough.
