CBRE Borough Guide 2017: Haringey


Haringey is a borough of varied landscapes. Beautiful wooded high grounds around Highgate and Muswell Hill contrast with the low lying area of Tottenham in the east, which fronts the River Lea. This diversity is mirrored in its property markets with prices in prime Muswell Hill are typically in excess of £1 million, while Tottenham’s are closer to £400,000.

Parts of the borough are set to undergo considerable regeneration. London’s largest Opportunity Area, Upper Lea Valley, runs through the east of the borough. At almost 10,000 acres, the area stretches across three boroughs and aims to deliver 20,000 new homes. Along with its expanse of greenspace perhaps the best thing about Haringey is its transport links. It is outer London’s best connected borough (served by three underground lines and an extensive Overground network). As a result, it is a popular residential location. Despite one of the highest rates of house price growth last year, new build prices remain under £1,000 psf. Going forward, our forecasts suggest Haringey will have one of the highest rates of house price growth in London over the next five years
