The local area guide to living in Manor House
Manor House, a district in London, has belonged to the London Borough of Hackney since the early 19th century. Sitting at the crossroad of Seven Sisters Road and Woodberry Grove, this small, built-up town is bordered by the glorious Finsbury Park to its west and the New River encircling its borders to the north, east and south.
Manor House also has its own tube station on the Piccadilly line of the same name - which falls on the boundary of Zone 2 and 3. From Manor House, Stratford, Oxford Circus, Kings Cross Station, and Heathrow Airport can be reached within a matter of moments these highly attractive proximities make the town a popular hub for professionals, especially for those who work in North London.
However, Manor House has suffered from a troubled past one that involves poverty. In a bid to revamp and market the town as a hospitable place to live, the council decided to inject millions of pounds into a regeneration scheme that will see Manor House undergoing serious redevelopment. And its working. Many are now enticed into the area for the sleek new apartment complexes, retail opportunities and the green open spaces.
