"A huge Thank you to you and all the team who have been excellent throughout the whole process of selling my home. I can hand on heart say that you are by far the best estate agent in Haringey".
Mr Fox, Wood Green
WHY MOVE TO HARINGEY?
Celebrated for its links to the literary world, the borough of Haringey is brimming with cultural energy. The borough is the birthplace of celebrated poet, writer and broadcaster, Sir John Betjeman; perhaps known best for his autobiography written entirely in blank-verse - Summoned by Bells. Why not stake out the Cyrpiot-Greek restaurant, Arocaria, where the food is hearty, delicious, affordable and authentic, before visiting the beautifully secluded Shepherd’s Hill Gardens, to unwind and get away from all traces of the city, with some of Betjeman’s poetry. Haringey is home to one of the liveliest entertainment venues in the country - Alexandra Palace - located between Muswell Hill and Wood Green. Having originally opened in 1873 to serve as a public centre of recreation, it gained most fame for being the home of the world’s first regular public television service in 1936. Be sure to eek out the Rose Window on the south-east front; a grand design in the style of a Russian Orthodox Church, constructed from finely chiselled and decadently painted stone. “Ally Pally” (as it is colloquially referred to) has some must-see events lined up over 2015 including the Red Bull Soap Box Race, Florence + The Machine and Major Lazer.
PROPERTY IN HARINGEY
Currently there are 471 listed buildings in Haringey including the Grade II listed St Saviour’s War Memorial, Grade II listed Blenheim Lodge and the aforementioned Grade II listed Alexandra Palace. As well as an abundance of impressive property for Haringey estate agents and lettings services, the borough is awash with over 600 acres of parkland and green space. Haringey Borough Council have provided funding towards the Lee Valley Regional Park, which is London’s biggest open space stretching from Ware in Hertfordshire, through Essex, to the Thames at East India Dock Basin. Finsbury Park has seen a major, £5 million, restoration project, retaining the space to its former 19th century glory with all the modern-day amenities and requirements. Two of Haringey’s park spaces make up a section of the Capital Ring Walk, a route that explores the heritage, architecture and landscape of London.
