Scotland Yard said officers were called to reports of an injured man at an address in Marsh Road, Pinner, at around 6am on Sunday.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and police said enquiries were under way to identify the man and his next of kin.
It comes amid another night of bloodshed in the capital with six more people stabbed.

A large section of Marsh Road has been cordoned off, with a number of police officers in attendance.
One resident described Pinner as ‘lovely’, but said she was not shocked by the news as such incidents are ‘happening in all areas’.
Mary MacNamara, who has lived in the area for four years, said: ‘We all see what’s going on generally and it (such crime) seems to be happening in all areas.
She said: ‘It’s happening every day. Nobody does anything about it. The Government are doing nothing about it. All they do is fight about Brexit.’
