Affluent neighbourhood

Affluent neighbourhood

[ July, 2013 ] Our walk in London took us to the affluent neighbourhood of Highgate.

My friend said ” Here the house prices are most expensive in London”.

Surely, the houses around here are elegant.

I was curious so had a look at an estate agent’s website and found that one gorgeous house with 10 bed rooms are on sale at £28,500,000.

Well, I do not even understand what this figure means really.

Quite many celebrities live there, including Rod Stewart, Kate Moss and George Michael.

Apparently this place used to be a village outside of London until Victorian time and still sometimes called Highgate Village.

Although it is an expensive area, in the centre, there were many chain restaurants, so we had a lunch in one of them.
