PROPERTIES IN WOODSIDE PARK N12 – AREA GUIDE
Woodside Park is a niche area bordered by Totteridge and West Finchley in North London, and has its own Underground Station on zone 4 of the Northern Line. This parkland setting is highly sought after as it boasts three favourable primary schools – Frith Manor, Woodridge, and Moss Hall. Predominantly constructed by Fred Ingram in the 1930’s, the bulk of the properties are pre-war, traditionally built and well proportioned semi-detached houses, many of which have since been extended to the rear, side and/or loft, to provide even more spacious family accommodation, with generous sized rear gardens. Fred Ingram originated from Sussex and took great pride in naming the thoroughfares, cul-de-sacs, crescents and closes after the quirkily named villages and hamlets in that part of the world, with the ‘Sussex Ring’ parade of local shops comprising the cornerstone of Woodside Park.
Around the 1950’s, the ‘Leyland Construction Company’ completed the original build programme that had been abandoned with the onset of the war, and then progressed with its own style of larger detached and semi-detached properties on the extensive land towards Totteridge, thus extending this desirable residential area even further. In addition, there are several streets nearer to North and West Finchley that were constructed during the Edwardian period, and offer substantial character detached, terraced and semi-detached properties, many of which still retain their original features.
