Harlesden Area Guide

An Estate Agents Guide To Harlesden

Looking for houses for sale in Harlesden? Learn more about the Harlesden area below.

Harlesden is an area to watch; on the cusp of rapid change, the old stereotypes that have haunted this area in the past are on their way out. The Old Oak Common is undergoing a £4 million restoration project that will positively transform the area. This includes the renovation of the iconic 1887 Jubilee Clock, a campaign supported by famous Harlesden resident Louis Theroux.

Harlesden offers a strong sense of community enriched by its vibrant and multi-cultural population. It has been given the affectionate nickname ‘London’s Reggae Capital’ by locals, in recognition of its colourful and youthful buzz, and cosmopolitan feel.


The large Victorian and Edwardian style terraces and modern flats on tree-lined streets offer ideal abodes for first-time buyers and investors who are attracted to the area’s redevelopment programme

With a lively high street teaming with independent shops, you can easily stay local and enjoy the Harlesden scene. However, being just 5 miles from the West End, and close to the lovely open space of Roundwood Park, you can take your pick from a day relaxing in local green spaces, enjoy some retail therapy at Westfield Shopping Centre (approx. 15 minutes’ drive away), or an evening soaking up the entertainment of London’s theatre district, which is easily reached via the Bakerloo line. It is no wonder that Harlesden has been identified as one of the 20 best performing areas of 2016 for house price growth.

Professional and friendly service. My first experience using an estate agent could not have gone any better. Always available by phone or email no matter how minutia the question or need is.

Finally, we sold our flat. It was a roller coaster journey for us-- with the great help of Darren and Andy who were there to guide us along the way (as we are selling our property for the first time) these duos really did a fantastic job of explaining to us and giving us information as we go about with the process. They would call, update us by email, phone and would go extra mile.. I couldnt thank them enough. Thank you Portland Estate Agents. Highly recommended!
