Once a borough marred by high crime and run down estates, gentrification in Hackney has seen East End inner city district Shoreditch become a trendy hotspot – in particularly for young professionals. This new tag of a ‘yuppie zone’ saw house prices soar in the area. In fact, according to the HPI that we calculate for the Land Registry, Hackney has seen an annual increase of 20.9% putting the average property price up to £563,928. This figures means that, on average, purchasing a home in Kingston upon Thames would be nearly a third cheaper than in Hackney.

Check out this studio flat in Shoreditch, marketed at nearly £1.3 million with Foxtons.

Shepherds Bush

This extremely unusual one bedroom house caught our eye when it came on the market with Kerr & Co. – and it’s not surprising.
This quirky property which has a garage door exterior is on the market for £2 million pounds.
Shepherds Bush is bordered by some of the most expensive areas in London – Holland Park and Chiswick, though house prices in ‘the Bush’ tend to be significantly lower than its neighbours.
