The NW11 postcode has a wide range of different properties to suit all budgets. At one end of the scale, there are the impressive properties on ‘Billionaires Row’ (in locations like Ingrams Avenue). These expansive mansion-style houses usually come with sweeping driveways, extensive gardens and plenty of space inside. Many are fairly modern, though there are a few period detached properties, which have lots of original features. The Arts and Crafts and Art Deco homes are particularly desirable.
There are several houses that are suitable for families; from spacious 1920s semi-detached homes, to cosy cottages with plenty of character. Younger commuters may prefer the contemporary apartments, which offer open-plan living space, and luxurious fixtures and fittings.
Although prices are higher than the national average, first-time buyers aren’t priced out of the market. It’s possible to find a great one-bedroomed flat here priced at less than the London average, which makes a great investment for the future. Prices tend to be affected by proximity to the local stations, and the neighbouring schools.

The NW11 area has long been one of North London’s most desirable postcodes. It has a fascinating history. For example, Hampstead Garden Suburb was created in 1907 by Dame Henrietta Barnett, a famous philanthropist of her time. She funded the planning of the town in a bid to create properties for people on all budgets, and to make it a beautiful place to live in too. Most residents agree that she succeeded in her task!
Some of the public buildings in the area were designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, and this gives the NW11 area a real sense of class. This is exemplified in the pleasant, leafy streets, and the strong sense of community that prevails here.
Many residents commute into Central London; a journey that’s refreshingly easy, thanks to Golders Green station, which is on the Northern Line. There are also regular buses operating in the area, and National Express coaches.
You’ll find plenty of independent shops in NW11, and some charaterful local cafes and restaurants. Keen shoppers often catch the bus to Brent Cross, or alternatively, hop on a train to Oxford Street for some serious retail therapy. For a more laid-back afternoon, one of the area’s many green spaces provides the ideal backdrop for a stroll with the dog. Hampstead Heath’s extension is a popular spot, as are Lyttelton Playing Fields.
A major draw for families is the high performing schools. Brampton College consistently gets higher-than-average GCSE results, and Menorah High School for Girls is another popular choice.
NW11 is a highly regarded area, and as such, property prices are higher than the London average. However, this figure is somewhat misleading, as it’s skewed by the ‘millionaire’ homes on the market. As a result, most homebuyers and investors manage to find a property here that works with their budget.
Average prices are on the rise too, which means if you invest now, you’re likely to generate good profit from capital growth in the future. Likewise, average rental yields are solid – which is welcome news for landlords.
The rental market is strong, and there’s always plenty of interest from tenants. Popular demographics tend to be commuters and families, and the sought-after properties reflect this. This trend looks set to continue, which again, is excellent for landlords.
