Why I love being an estate agent in Kensal Green

Why I love being an estate agent in Kensal Green

I’ve seen Kensal Green benefit from significant gentrification over the past decade or so. Situated on Brent’s southern border, along the Harrow Road, and flanked by Harlesden, Willesden, Queen’s Park, North Kensington and White City, it’s a heady mix of all that’s best about the city, and there’s still a great buzz around this North West London enclave.

I most enjoy the warm, welcoming, village feel of Kensal Green (much like its little sister Kensal Rise), characterised by charming period homes, independent shops and restaurants. As well as a fashionable reputation (Mulberry even named a luxury handbag ‘The Kensal’) that’s fuelled by its trend-setting residents.

Liana is just the best. As first time buyers we had no idea how to navigate the process – but Liana was helpful and supportive from start to finish. Any question we had, we could just drop her a WhatsApp or give her a call – and she would be there, smiley and cheery as ever. We absolutely love our very own first flat – thank you Liana for making it happen!

About Kensal Green

About Kensal Green

Largely agricultural until the mid-1800s, it was in the 1930s that many of the semidetached houses and flats in Kensal Green were built, and considered to have the best housing layouts in the borough at the time. Branded as slum-like for many years, it wasn’t until the 1970s and 80s with immigration of African-Caribbean people and middle-class professionals, that the seeds of change were planted.

Now Kensal Green is home to a high proportion of residents working in media and culture, with renowned musicians, actors and film directors based in the area. There’s also a growing French community thanks to the opening of a French Lycée in Brent.

Many of the houses form part of the original terraces and tend to have high ceilings and a wealth of period features. Wide open spaces include Little Wormwood Scrubs, Kensington Memorial Park and Queen’s Park, or you can join the Kensal Green section of Grand Union Canal (the longest canal route in England) for an urban cycle.

Home to two well-known cemeteries; Kensal Green Cemetery is the one of the oldest burial grounds in the city, and just next to it, St Mary’s Catholic Cemetery. Both host many notable personalities including politicians, authors, spies and sportsmen as well as one (of two) working coffin lifts still used in England.

Average prices of £949,000 were recorded in Kensal Green over the last year. The majority of sales in Kensal Rise during the last year were terraced properties, selling for an average price of £1 million. Overall, sold prices in Kensal Rise over the last year were 1% down on the previous year, but 3% up on the 2017 peak.
