If you’re thinking about a buy-to-let, your priority should be finding a property that will always prove popular with tenants. That’s why your search should start with our houses and flats for sale in Camden Town.
Camden is a highly desirable area attracting a wide range of tenants, from students and city workers to media professionals and A-list celebrities. There’s a mix of new homes, period properties and architectural gems, and the London Residential team have oodles of tips for buying property if you’re not entirely sure where to start. To get you up and running, here are our top 5 streets where landlords have never been short of tenants. If you’d like to know more, please get in touch:-
1. Camden Mews - the modern Mecca - Set away from the bold markets, Camden Mews is a long cobbled street lined with marvellously modern mews, despite their conventional facades. Many of the properties have been reconfigured by leading architects, including Edward Cullinan, Georgie Wolton, Tom Kay and Peter Bell. Also search in Murray Mews for more one-off architectural gems that will wow tenants.
2. Camden Square - homage to a modern jazz icon - Even before becoming home to the late Amy Winehouse, there was a heightened level of desirability swirling around Camden Square. The attractive period properties overlook a grassy expanse - a wonderful juxtaposition against the street art and vibrancy that Camden is renowned for. Camden Square is also close to the highly sought after Camden School for Girls, so is always in demand among renting families.
3. Gloucester Crescent - for period charm and public figures - Probably one of the most prestigious streets in London, let alone Camden. Crammed full of period gems laid out in a sweeping arc, this is the place to be for grandeur - always popular with international and affluent tenants. Playwright Alan Bennett lived here for many years and his house was the location for the film ‘The Lady in the Van’. Gloucester Crescent is a short walk from Camden Town Tube station, the Jazz Café and Cavendish Prep School.
4. Hartland Road - Camden’s cultural heartland - Camden is all about the vibe - live music, counter culture, street art and left-field fashion. Hartland Road puts you at the centre of the action, with the famous Stables Market at the end of the road - a hit with students and culture vultures alike. There’s a variety of property styles lining the road, including some of Camden’s famous pastel-coloured dwellings and a ‘Liquid Lights’ mural by artist Dan Kitchener.
5. Oval Road - for contemporary waterside living - Tenants naturally gravitate to the Regent’s Canal end of Oval Road for the views over the water, warehouse-style living and modern apartments. This road is home to The Lockhouse and Latitude House residential developments, which offer low-maintenance secure investments for landlords, with flats reassuringly under the wing of block managers.
