First time buyers scouting for properties know all too well how expensive it can be to live in London.
And while living in a commuter town or on the edges of the city could cost much less, it’s just not the same as being in the heart of the capital.
Many young people or ‘professionals’ would much rather be in a one bed near the centre of London than a two bed in Hertfordshire.
But what exactly can you get for £300,000 in some of North and East London’s most exciting locations?
We took a look on Rightmove to find out…
1 bedroom flat in Ingestre Road, Kentish Town
It’s back to basic with this flat in Kentish – a bedroom, a bathroom, a living room, and a kitchen.
But plain and clean décor actually makes for endless opportunities to dress up the flat however you like.
It’s very well located near Tufnell Park and Kentish Town stations.
Plus has an incredible view!
1 bedroom flat in Sunnyside Road, Archway
Another one bedroom property over in Archway.
And while it may not be the prettiest building on entrance, the flat itself isn’t too shabby.
Again, wooden floors and white walls give a blank canvas for buyers to paint on.
The flat’s elevated location also provides a pretty stunning view across the city.
But the best part about this place is that its £25,000 below our budget.
So, more to spend on making it look like the home of your dreams!
1 bedroom flat in Lower Clapton Road, Clapton
Yes, it is a flat above some shops on Lower Clapton Road.
But it is also so much more than that.
Outside, you’ve got instant access to some of Hackney’s best transport links (Hackney Central, Downs, and Homerton Overground).
Not to mention a great range of restaurants and bars on your doorstep.
And inside, you could enjoy life in a beautifully modern flat with clean, chic decor – it doesn’t look like much needs doing at all!
The question is, which one would you choose?
