This is an area consisting of many Victorian terraced properties with its borders spreading out to Golders Green, West Hampstead, Childs Hill and Willesden. It is a mixed area of commercial and residential properties. The properties in the wide leafy roads near Gladstone Park such as Anson Road and Oman Avenue offer good sized family accommodation of 4/5 bedrooms. The railway terraces just off the broadway are within a conservation area and are hugely popular with buyers looking for a tranquil green haven with a community spirit away from the busy centre.
The best means of transport into London is from Cricklewood Station which takes about 15 minutes to Kings Cross (St Pancras) station via British Rail Thameslink, as well as easy access to both Luton and Gatwick Airports. The local schools of Anson Road, All Saints' C of E Primary School NW2 and Claremont Primary School are all an obvious draw for families. Cricklewood offers extremely good value for money with good sized family homes.
There are currently plans in place for the regeneration of Cricklewood. Brent Cross is one of the capital’s major regeneration schemes and among the most significant planned new developments in Europe. The Regeneration Scheme will deliver a new town centre for Barnet and North West London, creating up to 27,000 jobs and acting as a catalyst for future economic growth. Cricklewood Brent Cross will be a great place for existing and new communities with 7,500 new homes being built, as well as new buildings for three local schools, new health facilities and high quality parks and open spaces.
