Golders Green grew out of a clear vision from philanthropist Dame Henrietta Barnett in 1907 and, as such, has retained much of its 'leafy London' persona.
A family hotspot thanks to good schools, roads after road of large 1920s and 1930s detached homes and good links for the parents to reach work in central London, Golders Green is where Londoners put down long term, leafy roots.
But thanks to new development, there's also plenty on offer for young professionals, too, with new flats springing up in places like Finchley Road in the south of the area.
And with prices stabilising over the past 18 months, there's some real value to be found in Golders Green.
