When it comes to luxury property London boasts some of the world’s most exclusive neighborhoods. Although not the priciest areas, the north London suburbs of Hampstead and Highgate remain sought after, partly because each retains their village-like atmosphere, despite being just a few miles from the West End. However, the average home price here is still around a million pounds, with prices typically increasing closer to Hampstead Heath. There is a lot to love about these two areas; both have pleasant tree-lined streets, squares, and alleyways, and both boast a good selection of restaurants, cafes, and individual shops. Hampstead Heath is one of London’s best-loved open spaces, offering walking, fishing, and the chance to spot wildlife, as well as spectacular views over central London. And the Underground’s Northern Line can get you to the financial district or the West End in about 20 minutes.
