Letting Agents in Friern Barnet London N11
A small suburb of Barnet, but a very countrified and lovely one, Friern Barnet is as good an area to look for a splendid family home as any in the region and one that's almost uniformly charming and pleasant.
Until the 19th Century like much of London, Friern Barnet was entirely rural, until the railway, and Colney Hatch Hospital, were opened and flourished. But it retains to a great degree the country feel that it started with, and is filled with excellent green spaces. Friary Park is a nearby hotspot for walks, and there's an excellent nature reserve at Coppetts Wood, where rare plants and animals can be seen. Schools are good in the area by reputation and Ofsted report. This is very much a residential area, but there are plenty of excellent areas within a few minutes - Muswell Hill, North Finchley, and New Southgate - which provide fabulous choices of restaurants, bars and shopping. However there are some shops, good locals and eateries in the immediate vicinity, as well as little beauty parlours and salons.
There are excellent properties of every description in Friern. Excellent roads of Victorian and Edwardian semis vie with some very large, impressive 20th century houses. Many houses are whole, but there are conversions to be found; most have excellent gardens. The area is noted for the upmarket modern development of Princess Park Manor, a lovely Victorian refurbishment where several stars and celebrities are known to have apartments. Next door to this development is the modern village, filled with well constructed and quite desirable houses, of Friern Village.
This is an area of very good housing that is not ridiculously overpriced, but is on the up and generally desirable. It's quiet, unassuming and peaceful; a place to relax, with everything you need on your doorstep.
