Stoke Newington, or ‘Stokey’ as its residents fondly call it, has always been something of a haven for radicals and non conformists and the area has retained a strong identity and community spirit.

Nestled within the Haringey Borough, Crouch End is a hub of secluded vibrant activity. Centred around the Late Victorian era red brick clock tower that signals the heart of the Broadway.

Hammersmith

Hammersmith is a paradox of the chaos and calm.

Marylebone

Mere minutes away from the cacophony of Oxford Circus but a world away from the noise, Marylebone is a paradoxical pocket of calm within the heart of London. Stately period homes and quirky stylish boutiques lay behind the elm and oak trees which line the roads.

Located between Alexandra Park and Highgate Woods, both areas of renown beauty, Muswell Hill boasts Edwardian Architecture along its leafy streets where dog owners and locals are often seen on Sundays strolling the area, simply because it is pleasant.
