It can be confusing looking for a home within London. There are so many places to chose from it can be hard to narrow it down. Looking at each postcode area is one method but you can be unsure what things mean or what areas are within each district. Lucky for you, Man and Van is here as your guide to the HA1 region.
The harrow postcode district is located in the north-east of London is responsible for the entirety of the Borough of Harrow, as well as the north-eastern section of Hillingdon, the western part of Brent, a small segment of the Barnet, as well as some of Hertfordshire’s Three Rivers area . The sorting office for the area is located in Greenford.
Like all other postcode districts HA contain many smaller areas that are separated by postcode. These are HA0 to HA9 and were initiated in order to improve various services in London, mainly mail delivery, but also street signs and navigation. The Boroughs that are encompassed by these codes are Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon and Three Rivers. The HA1 area has the post town address as HARROW and so naturally it covers the Boroughs of Harrow and Brent and they corresponding areas of Harrow, Harrow on the Hill, North Harrow and Northwick Park.
The HA1 area has much more affordable house prices than the rest of London because of it’s outskirts location. The cheapest option is a studio apartment which go for around £143,400, which only increases slightly to £173,300 for a one bedroom flat. Flats with two, three and four bedrooms costing on average £234,300, £283,100 and £390,300 respectively. The most expensive option would be a six bedroom house at £753,500, with three and single bedroom homes going for £350,800 and £152,800 each.
The area is one that is undergoing much positive change. The Harrow & Wealdstone Intensification Area was part of the London plan that aims to build almost three-thousand new homes and create even more new jobs. North Harrow is known for exceeding the average for the quality of life in the area meaning that it is a safe and affluent place to live with many schools (with the famous Harrow School found within the HA1 area). Housing here is largely low-rise, low-density, high floor space structures. There are many open spaces here as well as retailers. 14th century building Headstone Manor is a key landmark which serves the area for sport and includes the Harrow Museum and Heritage Centre. Northwick Park and St. Mark’s are tow notable hospitals in the area. There are many successful sport teams and facilities in the area. The metropolitan line runs through here and ensures strong railway links and a major bus station allows for easy public transportation by road.
