Network Homes: Shared Ownership living in the heart of Cricklewood at Zest

On June 22nd, award-winning housing association Network Homes unveiled Zest – a stylish collection of eight one, two and three bedroom apartments for Shared Ownership in the popular North West London area of Cricklewood, with entry prices from just £150,000.

Set within attractive low-rise blocks, the new homes enjoy landscaped surroundings. The apartments, which all benefit from a balcony or terrace, are built to the highest specification, with stylish contemporary fixtures and fittings ensuring they offer the best in modern living. In addition, each home benefits from secure cycle storage and allocated off street car parking.

Cricklewood is an area undergoing significant investment – with a multi-billion pound programme delivering new homes, public spaces, transport links and a revamped town centre with a vastly improved retail offering. Gladstone Park provides 35 hectares of green space on the doorstep, while the established enclaves of Kilburn and Hampstead nearby, with Hampstead Heath providing a wealth of leisure options amongst the great outdoors.

Lisa Ley, Head of Sales & Marketing at Network Homes, comments: “Zest will provide much needed Shared Ownership homes for Cricklewood, allowing buyers the chance to get onto the ladder in a popular location with excellent connections, on a modest budget. The ongoing improvements to the area also make this a good move for the future, with public and private investment that will continue to bring a wide range of benefits.”

Situated on the sought-after Cricklewood Lane, Zest is just a couple of minutes’ walk from local shops, restaurants and schools, along with Cricklewood Station in Zone 3 which facilitates fast access to St. Pancras in just 14 minutes and City Thameslink in 20 minutes. Meanwhile, Willesden Green is just over a mile away, served by the Jubilee Line. The area is also served by numerous bus routes, including a night service, that stop minutes away from the development.

Prices start at just £150,000 for a 40% share of a one bedroom apartment. Call 0207 412 8871 or visit to find out more. Priority for these apartments will be given to people who live or work locally in Barnet.
