New homes in Collindale from £235,000

Recently designated a housing growth zone by Mayor Boris Johnson, Collindale, in Zone 4, is an obvious location for young Londoners priced out of the centre.

Colindale, on the north-west fringe of the capital close to the M1, is where suburban Metroland begins. It’s an area of playing fields, country parks and leafy avenues lined with tidy inter-war semis that are popular with middle-class families whose breadwinner commutes to the City or West End.

Recently designated a housing growth zone by Mayor Boris Johnson, this unspectacular suburb is changing. Being on the Northern line, in Zone 4, Colindale is an obvious location for young Londoners priced out of the centre. Silver Works, with 191 homes priced from £262,500, is being built on the site of a former RAF depot  that served historic Hendon Aerodrome, where Britain’s first loop-the-loop and parachute descent took place.
