10 miles away from Central London with excellent transport links into the heart of the capital lies the home of the iconic Wembley Stadium, SSE Arena and the new London Designer Outlet Centre, with regeneration plans for 5,000 new homes in the next 10 years.
With the stadium playing host to the 1966 World Cup final between England & Germany, the 1948 Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games and 1985 Live Aid Concert, it has long been a vital component to the area’s popularity, and is an internationally renowned venue for major sporting events. The SSE Arena similarly is host to major concerts and events and the fairly recent opening of the Designer Outlet Centre provides the public with outlets, cinemas and restaurants galore.
This, combined with a multitude of schools and a large volume of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses, as well as tube & train access via the Metropolitan, Jubilee, Bakerloo & London Overground, makes Wembley a unique area with strong potential for further growth, with a diverse mix of families and commuters.
On the site of the listed former Brent Town Hall in Forty Lane, there is the recently opened French government school, Lycée International de Londres, bringing many French families to live in the Wembley area, adding further diversity to the existing strong South Asian population.
Adding to this, new regeneration plans and developments are attracting a range of buy-to-let investors, leading to a tremendous rise in rental prices for developments close to Wembley Stadium, and traditional thirties terraced houses on roads such as Monks Park are being tipped as the next growth spots.
Still, the prime locations such as The Sudbury Court Estate, Barn Hill and The Paddocks are of the highest value in the area, with prices ranging from £800,000 up to £1.8 million.
