 Summary:Good long term capital growth potential.  The area has good neighbours – it’s just a matter of time.
Sought After Streets:Tufnell Park Road, Anson Road and Ingestre Road.


This is a favourite with the investor.  Its in zone 2 on the tube, it has a number of stations down the Kentish Town Road including the Camden Road Station which will be soon turned in to a tube station by 2006 and its quite near the nicer areas such as Islington, Hampstead, Highgate and Camden.  There is a lot of speculative money going in to this and surrounding areas.  Investors think that the property prices in this area will mirror the prices being achieved by its affluent neighbours.

I like the ex-council properties here.  They represent good value and can be easily let out to undergraduate and mature students, families and those seeking an interesting and non-conventional place to live.  The area is only 3 miles from the centre and there is plenty to do here.  A stroll further up and you hit the colourful Holloway Road.  Whatever people say about this road and the roads off it the properties here are great investments.

If you’re looking for a long term punt then this is your one.  The yields are not bad, reduced because of the speculation effect, but good enough to be safe.  When the properties dry up in the neighbouring areas then the natural choice is Tufnell Park and Kentish Town.
