New homes in London: Nordic Quarter, Edgware Green

Scandi-style apartments and four-bedroom townhouses in Colindale, north-west London.
Colindale, on the north-west fringe of the capital close to the M1, might be seen as part of an unspectacular swathe of suburban Metro-Land — but it could be an area on the up.

Its playing fields, country parks and avenues lined with interwar semis are popular with middle-class families who commute to the City or West End. Recently designated a housing growth zone by Mayor Boris Johnson, and on the Northern line in Zone 4, Colindale is an obvious location for young Londoners priced out of the centre.

Nordic Quarter is a scheme of 108 Scandi-style apartments with up to four bedrooms in sleek, white-rendered blocks. Prices are from £252,000, with shared-ownership options available. Call Network Living on 020 3376 6455.
