The Cricklewood property market is dominated by attractive Edwardian and Victorian houses; many of which are situated on leafy residential streets, close to parks. There are also several spacious 1920s semi-detached and detached homes. While most of these properties remain as houses, some have been sub-divided to create flats – ideal for first-time buyers. Modern homes are less common, though there is a limited number of purpose-built flats, which, when they to come to market, tend to get snapped up quickly.

Homebuyers in Cricklewood are comprised mostly of families wishing to enjoy a slice of ‘village’ life, while maintaining proximity to Central London. Newer developments, such as Fellow Square are attracting more professionals to the area. There are also bargains for first-time buyers, with apartments available for less than surrounding areas, such as West Hampstead.

The price of a property in Cricklewood is influenced not only by the size and style of the home, but also its location. Houses close to the station are always higher in price, as are those that are close to Gladstone Park or well-regarded schools.

Period Victorian and Edwardian spacious family homes and exciting property developments mean that Cricklewood has something to suit most people’s budgets.

Cricklewood is situated between Hampstead Heath and Gladstone Park in the London boroughs Barnet and Brent. The residential area started as a small hamlet on Edgeware Road and Cricklewood Lane. Then urban development in the late 19th and early 20th centuries transformed the area into a large London suburb.

Properties in Cricklewood are mostly period properties built from the late Victorian era until the 1930s. The varied architectural styles give the neighbourhood a distinct character. For example, two-storey Victorian and Edwardian terraces have period features, bay windows, and spacious rear gardens.

Large Art Deco mansions have stunning flats and fantastic views over London and the surrounding areas. Additionally, buyers or renters can find modern flats in contemporary apartment blocks that are part of Crinklewood’s regeneration.

Kilburn and Willesden Green stations on the Jubilee line are in Zone 2, and Cricklewood station in Zone 3 is on the Thameslink.
