Often referred to as Chipping Barnet thanks to its history as a market town, Barnet combines the advantages of rural living with a superb location just 10 miles outside of central London. Services between New Barnet and London Old Street stations take less than 25 minutes, while High Barnet is on the London Underground's Northern Line, offering easy access to the capital.

Barnet offers prospective home-movers a wide array of property types, incorporating everything from new build flats and houses to properties dating back hundreds of years, and from maisonettes to Victorian terraces. The most common results in a Barnet property search are three bedroom terraced and semi-detached houses.

The area is popular with families thanks to some of the most highly sought-after schools in North London being found in the borough, including Queen Elizabeth Boys and Girls secondary schools, along with Monken Hadley and Foulds primary schools.
