Area guide for East Finchley
Those of us who live and work in the area weren’t surprised to hear East Finchley was voted “the happiest place” to live in London (Time Out, 2015).
East Finchley is a ‘leafy’ neighbourhood, which adjoins Muswell Hill, Highgate and Hampstead Garden Suburb with plenty of parks/woodlands nearby.
The annual Cherry Tree Park Community Festival, Christmas Fair and local newspaper are run voluntarily by local residents which very much defines the village atmosphere.
The High Road is dominated by independent, family-run businesses and a delightful assortment of coffee shops, eateries and food stores as well as multiples such as Budgens and Costa.
The Phoenix Cinema, just opposite the tube station, is the oldest purpose-built cinema in London, run by a charity and offering mainstream as well as many not-so-well-known films.
East Finchley offers a selection of sought after schools such as Fortismere, Martin and Brooklands which are other huge draws for homebuyers.
Accessibility is also very important - not just to Hertfordshire to the north and the motorway network but also the City and West End.
East Finchley is the last zone 3 stop on the Northern Line (High Barnet branch) as fares increase substantially for journeys further north!
The area is well served by buses too. For instance, the 134 runs from North Finchley to Oxford Street through East Finchley and the N20 night bus links Trafalgar Square and Barnet via N2.
We have noticed a particular increase recently in buy-to-let investors taking an interest in N2 recently as demand to live in the area from many professional tenants as well as families who continue to appreciate the many attributes to living and working in our area!
