Homes to Rent in Hornsey, London
Nestled between the green spaces of Queen’s Wood and Alexandra Park is Hornsey, the all-too-often forgotten down-to-earth community sitting on a hill (well, as down-to-earth as you can get above sea level). Hornsey is favoured by families and young professionals as its slightly cheaper than its neighbours, Haringey and Wood Green. It is well connected to the rest of the capital and still enjoys a historic, cockney charm. Hornsey is about six miles north of Charing Cross and is part of the London Borough of Haringey. Planning permission has been granted across several areas of Hornsey for new homes and as renters wisen up to its fast transport links (yes, even without a tube station), this community is set to welcome thousands of new people over the next few years.
Flats & Apartments to Rent in Hornsey
Hornsey’s available flats for rent are almost entirely in new developments and the scale of regeneration here means there’s lots of great choice. Hornsey Park Place has plenty of well-designed one and two bedroom flats to rent and the former Clarendon Gas Works is set to offer more ambitious duplexes and penthouses.
Houses to Rent in Hornsey
Hornsey is a little cheaper than its neighbours to rent a house so demand is growing here, but it would be fair to say it’s going slow and steady rather than flooding. The houses to rent in Hornsey are all late Victorian and Edwardian townhouses and terraces in varying sizes, although there are a couple of period homes dotted about.
Hornsey Transport & Amenities
Hornsey has perhaps mostly been ignored by Londoners because it’s not on the London Underground but its rail station does connect to St Pancras International in just over 16 minutes! Nearby Turnpike Lane has a Zone 3 Piccadilly line tube station, and there’s plenty of buses, Ubers and Santander cycles about. Hornsey has its own traditional high street, a mix of independent and chain stores, great local pubs and nice parks. The crown at the top of the hill is Alexandra Palace… locals always make sure to sit outside and enjoy the Palace’s fireworks display on big occasions.
