Home Design & Architecture
The charm of this quiet north London suburb is that it has one foot in the town, the other in the countryside. From bustling Barnet High Street it is but a short walk to the open heath-land of Hadley Common with its duck ponds and hilltop views. You will find detached, semi-detached and terraced Victorian and Edwardian houses as well as 1920’s & 1930’s houses and bungalows.
