Queens Park Property and Area guide

Queens Park is a small and exclusive neighbourhood located between Kilburn, Brondesbury Park and Kensal Green in North West London. The area is named after the large park at its heart; over 30 acres of open space including tennis courts, children’s playground, paddling pool, pitch and putt course and small petting zoo. The park, named in commemoration of Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee in 1887 holds Green Flag status for its excellent facilities and use of space.

The streets around Queens Park were developed over a 10 year period between 1895 and 1905 and are characterised by handsome, well-maintained late Victorian and Edwardian terraces, semi-detached houses and beautiful period conversion flats, perfect for the many families that flock here. Queens Park is a well-known mecca for those in the media and creative industries as well as a fair smattering of A-list celebrities attracted by its café culture, strong community feel, the delights of the park, good schools and properties with close proximity to central London.

Queens Park is best known for its beautiful period properties, many of which form substantial family houses or lovely flat conversions. The roads around the Park, characterised by their large redbrick Edwardian semis are the most sought after by families; Harvist Road, Chevening Road, Milman Road and Kingswood Avenue. Houses in the conservation area cost between £1,750,000 and £2,750,000, depending on their level of modernisation. One-bedroom flats start at around £500,000 and two-bedroom flats start at around £700,000.

The roads west of College Rd with their Edwardian terraces offer some of the best value in the area.

Sandwiched in between the railway and Harrow Road is the Queens Park Estate, an area of small terraced cottages built between 1874 and 1882 as social housing. Although many of the houses were lost to bomb damage, plenty of the pretty terraces remain and a 2-bedroom cottage would set you back around £800,000.

Recent new developments include Queen’s Park Place off Salusbury Road.

Michael Wilson, Head of Sales says:

“Queens Park has always been a mecca for young families and up until a few years ago was the area of choice for those in the music and media industry. More recently, the area has attracted those priced out of Notting Hill and Maida Vale with city workers increasingly making this charming little enclave their home. With such lovely houses, many of which are in a conservation area, great transport links and the park on your doorstep you can see the appeal.”
