Tottenham's got the regeneration buzz

Regeneration is changing the face of Tottenham with 260 new homes on a former industrial estate.

It's cheap by London standards, has quick transport links to the City, West End, Docklands and Stansted airport, and, crucially, regeneration is beginning to make a difference. It's Tottenham.

The area evolved with the advent of the railways and was an important manufacturing base. Streets of modest pre-Twenties terraces were built, while the Blitz later prepared the way for sprawling council estates — including notorious Broadwater Farm — where improvements are under way and new forms of tenure are being introduced. Convenient for Seven Sisters Tube station, Lawrence Square, pictured, replaces an industrial estate and brings 260 homes priced from £209,995. Call Bellway on 0845 676 0261.

"At the moment, demand is strong but supply is weak," says Maxine Casey of local estate agent Barnard Marcus. "A lot of buyers have a deposit but cannot find the right property." 

More choice is coming. Tottenham is one of the Mayor's 10 new housing zones and in line for 10,000 new homes.
