Our local experts are here to help

If you are looking to buy a home in Islington, Highbury, Camden or any of the surrounding areas, Hotblack Desiato offer a large portfolio of properties to choose from.

Many families choose to move to these parts of North London because of the availability of well-proportioned, predominantly Georgian and Victorian houses and because of the abundance of good schools in the area. There is also a large selection of flats and smaller sized properties that are ideally suited to young couples and professionals who work in central London and enjoy the vibrancy and colour that comes with living in, or nearby, such fashionable and dynamic locations as Camden Town and Islington.

Most areas of North London like Islington, Highbury, and Camden are well served by public transport and makes commuting to the City and West End very quick and easy. All these areas are well served by a wide choice of bus routes and over-ground and tube stations which are often within only a few stops of Kings Cross, St Pancras International and Euston stations. The City and West End can often be within walking distance.

Another reason to buy a property in North London is that many international companies have their headquarters in areas such as Kings Cross, St Pancras, Holloway, Holborn, and Camden Town, not to mention The City. This means that you can live near your place of employment; however, even if you have to travel further to work, the travel times to central London are not long, even at peak times.

Living in North London means that you are always near to green open spaces. Many houses and apartment buildings are close to large parks like Highbury Fields, Clissold Park, Hampstead Heath, Primrose Hill and Regent’s park.

In recent years, places like Kings Cross, Euston, Camden Town and Kentish Town have seen a massive regeneration with many diverse shops, markets, cafes, restaurants, gastro-pubs, music venues and nightclubs, giving these locations a unique charm and atmosphere. Many of these areas are within close proximity to popular and well established concert venues, such as The Forum and The Roundhouse. Additionally, with a selection of theatres, cinemas and galleries; you will never be stuck for something to do. All of these things combine to make our pocket of North London hugely popular with buyers.

New apartment buildings are springing up at an amazing rate, rubbing shoulders with Georgian and Victorian housing and bringing with them a whole new dynamic to the area. Highbury features not only the wide open acreage of Highbury Fields but the wonderful Highbury Barn, a strip of independent shops and restaurants which bring an unusual artisan atmosphere to the area and where we are fortunate to have our Highbury branch based.

Our office locations are close to other fashionable hotspots. Our Islington office is close to Angel, Kings Cross, Hoxton and Shoreditch. Highbury is within striking distance of Stoke Newington and Dalston and our Camden office neighbours Primrose Hill, Regent’s Park, Chalk Farm, Kentish Town and Tufnell Park.
