Welcome to Tufnell Park

Marsh & Parsons’ estate agency office in Tufnell Park is situated amongst an area with a long and varied history, and demand for flats and houses for sale and to let is growing day by day. Located in north-west London, the area straddles the borders of the London Borough of Islington and the London Borough of Camden, and runs along the line of an old Roman road on the Holloway Road, up Dartmouth Hill and over Hampstead Heath.

For hundreds of years, Tufnell Park was known mostly for its dairy farms which provided London’s milk supply. In the 1700s, the area became the property of William Tufnell, who petitioned the Parliament for permission to develop his estate. Real urban building in Tufnell Park began in 1845, with a scheme designed by renowned architect John Shaw Jr, who had laid out the Eton Estate in Chalk Farm, NW1.

With properties for sale and for rent close to Hampstead Heath, yet handy for the West End, Tufnell Park and Dartmouth Park are now well-known as being home to a number of celebrities. Famous local residents include; two generations of the Kinnock family, British Labour Party politicians; actors Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory, and Bill Nighy; and the supermodel Kristen McMenamy.

A premium is often achieved for properties closer to Hampstead Heath, which is also true for properties between Dartmouth Park and the lower end of High Gate. This is particularly true for Croftdown Road which can often fetch in excess of £3 million.

Often overlooked, the neighbouring Gospel Oak area offers many Victorian and Edwardian cottages which are in excellent condition. Some of the more favored streets include Mansfield Road and Parliament Hill. Centrally located one-bedroom flats tend to fetch between £425,000 and £500,000, whilst two-bedroom flats can range from £475,000 to £900,000 for the more spacious flats.
