Rayners Lane Area Guide
Rayners Lane is a district in the London Borough of Harrow, stretching from Pinner to the boundaries of North, West & South Harrow. The area boasts a variety of restaurants as well as being a popular commuter’s district and home to the headquarters of Ladbrokes, with tube links to both the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines providing ease of access to London.
The High street caters for a large variety of the public’s needs with a number of convenience stores in addition to pubs, a Post Office & banks, a number of fine eateries, in addition to major High Street names including Tesco, Sainsbury, Costa and Subway. Rayners Lane’s central location makes it very easily accessible to neighbouring towns such as Pinner, Ruislip, South Harrow, North Harrow and Northolt.
The Residential Sales market is extremely buoyant and with recent residential developments on the main thoroughfare, the area is becoming increasingly popular with more owner occupiers and buy to let investors and we anticipate a further increase in demand to the already booming markets.
Situated in the heart of Rayners Lane is the ‘Nash Estate’, constructed during the 1930’s and consisting of a variety of approximately 3500 homes. Rayners Lane is also home to Newton Farm Infant and Junior school, one of the top performing schools in the country. As a consequence, record prices are being achieved in the surrounding roads of Ravenswood Crescent, Drake Road and Kings Road and this trend looks set to continue.
Future developments on the boundaries of Rayners Lane include The Old Dairy in Ruislip at reputed cost of circa £100m which will include new homes, restaurants, a supermarket and an 11 screen cinema. This level of investment in this corner of North West London is great news for both buyers and sellers, as more amenities will materialise, adding to the popularity of this area.
North of Rayners Lane, the Kodak site between Harrow and Pinner is also to be redeveloped, with a proposal of 985 new homes, a medical centre, a primary school and shops that will create a thriving local community which can only be good news for buyers, sellers and local businesses.
As demand for homes in this area remains high, with a short supply of properties coming to the market, we anticipate a continued rise in house prices in the foreseeable future.
