Why I love being an estate agent in Cricklewood

Why I love being an estate agent in Cricklewood

I love that I can find everything in this friendly and welcoming neighbourhood- from parks to independent cafes, period architecture and plenty of shops on Cricklewood Broadway. Benefitting from both tube and Overground transport links, Cricklewood is instantly appealing to both families and young professionals.

I’ve lived in Cricklewood for the past eight years and consider myself a North West London expert personally and professionally. My two children go to school here; we eat in the cafes, play in the parks, and drink in the bars. I love being an estate agent for Cricklewood and the surrounding areas largely because it’s melting pot of different communities and backgrounds, primarily a sizeable Irish population, bringing a wealth of cultural richness to the area.

I would like to personally thank Liana for helping me sell my property in a seamless, timely and professional manner. In fact she not only met all my needs but also exceeded my expectations by offering great advice and referring me to very good solicitors. I would highly recommend her to everyone without a shadow of doubt. Thank you Liana from the bottom of my heart.

About Cricklewood, NW2

About Cricklewood, NW2

Cricklewood lies along the probable line of the historical Roman road, Watling Street, where Willesden, West Hampstead and Kilburn collide. It’s an unassuming enclave, home to celebrities, novelists and, of course, one notable serial killer.

Records cite ‘le Crickelwode’ as existing in 1294 and by 1860 Cricklewood was a small rural settlement. Residence of the famous Crown Pub, a grade two listed Victorian building built in 1899 (and now part of the Clayton Crown Hotel) as well as the former Cricklewood Aerodrome, used for the first London-Paris air service in the 1920s. Another distinctive building is the Cricklewood Pumping Station. Built in 1905, the interior was used as a double for the boat’s engine rooms of the 1997 film, Titanic.

Set to transform the area is the Brent Cross Cricklewood Regeneration Programme; an ambitious growth project to reshape the underused industrial area into a modern residential cityscape, and one of North West London’s top destinations for living, leisure, retail and business.

Last year, properties in Cricklewood had an overall average price of £762,000. The majority of sales in Cricklewood were flats, selling for an average price of £492,000. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £1.1 million, with terraced properties fetching £906,000. Overall, sold prices in Cricklewood over the last year were 13% up on the previous year and 10% up on the 2016 peak.

Where else is great around Cricklewood?

Cricklewood Railway Cottages – NW2

Located within a quiet terraced enclave you’ll find the characteristic Cricklewood cottages. This conservation area was built in the 1960s as housing for rail workers, and the charming two-bedroom cottages are now only a short stroll away from Gladstone Park and the convenient transport links. The Railway Terraces provide a peaceful island within this urban setting, with the cohesive community tending to the communal gardens and allotments.

The Golder’s Green Estate – NW2

This private housing development was built in 1929 by John Laing & Co on the site of the former Cricklewood Aerodrome. The area comprises large family homes with off-street parking and vast gardens. Within a stone’s throw of Child’s Hill Playground and Clitterhouse Playing Fields, with Brent Cross Shopping Centre only a short drive away.
