The area has benefitted tremendously from ease of access into Central London and by being the last link in Zone 2 on the Jubilee Line. Property prices have risen dramatically over recent years. The area has some wonderful architectural styles from beautiful Victorian and Edwardian detached and terraced housing to some larger lateral spaced 1920 - 1930 properties. Internal architectural features include exquisite ceiling cornicing, dado-railing, decorative cast-iron fireplaces with period ceramic tiles are all commonplace. These features create the opportunity for purchasers to reimagine the properties and create an eclectic contemporary aesthetic that is sympathetic to the original character of the original architecture.

The walking culture includes pop-up independent shops on Queen’s Parade including Lily King, coffee houses and restaurants including Sanzio, The Queensbury Gastropub, Beer+Burger, Gail’s, Mezzorama, Spice 6, Nest, A Casa Di Anna, Costa, and the best kept secret in NW2 - Sushi Masa Japanese restaurant. There is a Sainsbury’s local within walking distance and a large Sainsbury’s super market store with carpark facilities. Recently, Willesden and Willesden Green have continued to grow as a sought after area for families, couples and single people alike, all moving from central locations such as West Hampstead, Queen’s Park and Notting Hill, all looking to purchase substantial houses at more affordable prices and all offering plenty of lateral style living space.
