Queens Park/Kensal Rise/Kensal Green

Our sales and lettings portfolio covers these three cosmopolitan areas of North West London. Our expert estate agents operate in the Queens Park, Kensal Green and Kensal Rise areas, and can provide information about a wide range of properties from an older Victorian and Edwardian style to a more modern build. The great appeal is that these areas not only offer close proximity and excellent transport links to Central London, but they also provide a feeling of vibrant community life within the country’s capital.

QUEENS PARK, KENSAL RISE & KENSAL GREEN

Queens Park in particular, has fast become one of the capital's hippest and most desirable areas to live in recent times. These areas are now home to a number of well-known celebrities who are especially attracted to the areas’ charms, including picturesque parks, cinemas, and a large variety of restaurants, gastro pubs, cafes, specialist shops and boutiques. Our Queens Park estate agents believe that the area’s stylishness is the biggest attraction for many of their clients.

Kensal Green is a residential area with good transport links to Central London. Surrounding districts include Willesden Green to the north, Harlesden to the west, Brondesbury to the east and Ladbroke Grove to the south. The names Kensal Green and Kensal Rise are used somewhat interchangeably by non-residents to denote the same district, although residents differentiate between the areas based on proximity to the local tube and railway stations. If you are looking to rent in either of these areas get in touch with our letting agents in Kensal Green.

Kensal Rise translates from Old English as the King’s Holt or wood, and the first use of this name for this particular area is from 1253. Even until Victorian times, the area remained a largely agricultural part of London, with residential developments not really growing until well into the 19th Century. This urban development was mainly due to the building of the Grand Union Canal and the Great Western Railway. 

It Happened Here:

On 7 December 2006 at 11.00am, a tornado struck Kensal Green. Up to 150 houses were damaged, and six people were injured, one requiring hospital attention. Residential roads were closed off and residents had to seek temporary accommodation. Traffic was also diverted causing disruption. The cost of the damage was estimated to be at least £2m.
