A notable regeneration scheme is under way at Woodberry Down, close to Manor House station in N4, where an ex-council estate has been transformed with more than 1,000 new homes already built out of a planned total of 5,500.
There is a gym and spa on the luxury development, and a water sports centre at neighbouring West Reservoir, although the area does still lack the sort of thriving café culture that buyers love.
Berkeley Homes is selling one-bedroom flats at Woodberry Down from £532,500, and two-bedroom homes from £630,000.
But fringe hunters should look nearby, where you can buy a two-bedroom flat in a period conversion from between £425,000 and £525,000 — two bedrooms for the price of one at Woodberry Down.
On the back of the success of Woodberry Down, older properties in N4 are also likely to rise in value, and probably at a faster rate.
