Hornsey isn’t the most desirable place to live because it doesn’t come with the prestige of other areas, but those who move here often find they love it. Since this area is gentrifying, a lot of people are buying up apartments and homes to take advantage of the current prices. This has brought in professionals who are looking to save money.
For housing, you'll find semi-detached homes, terraces, and converted flats. Nearly all the properties here have private yards or at least communal green space.
There are some great things to do around town, including bars, restaurants, a high street, gym, children’s groups, and even a cooking class.
