Finch­ley’s great for down­siz­ers

FINCH­LEY has been easy com­mut­ing ter­ri­tory since the 1820s, when a daily stage­coach ran to the City. The build­ing of Finch­ley Road, by­pass­ing Hamp­stead, made the jour­ney quicker and more con­ve­nient. The area never looked back, with trains and later the Tube forg­ing even closer links with cen­tral Lon­don.

This pros­per­ous sub­urb has had a low pro­file in re­cent years due to the re­gen­er­a­tion spot­light shin­ing brightly on in­ner-city districts. But de­vel­op­ers are back and, in keep­ing with the tra­di­tion of the area’s Vic­to­rian and in­ter­war hous­ing boom, are cre­at­ing spa­cious homes in these leafy sur­round­ings. With its gabled red­brick and ren­dered façade, The Hal­ley, above, in a tree-lined road close to Finch­ley Cen­tral sta­tion, of­fers large apart­ments with high ceil­ings. Rang­ing up to 2,669 sqft, these homes would suit down­siz­ers leav­ing a Hamp­stead house, plus there are com­mu­nal gar­dens and un­der­ground park­ing. Prices from £999,999. Call 020 3828 0128.
