As one of North West London's leading estate agents, we regularly devour the capital's newspapers to read about the latest restaurant openings, live music performances and gossip from the city's property world.

So it didn't escape our notice that The Metro recently decided to fawn over one of North West London's coolest corners - publishing an article entitled '11 reasons why Kentish Town is the best place to live in London.'

We have have an office in Kentish Town so the feature doesn't surprise us... though we are actually astounded that the newspaper managed to whittle it down to just 11 highlights, as the area is packed full of interesting businesses, intriguing history and some magnificent period properties.

Our Kentish Town area knowledge and friendly, local staff have helped hundreds of home movers successfully buy or sell a property in Kentish Town. Many purchasers come to us looking at another area entirely but soon fall in love with Kentish Town and the wonderful properties that line the streets.

Once you've read The Metro's top 11 recommendations, contact London Residential and we'll share with you all the other 'best bits'.
