Located on one of Hampstead’s finest streets, in an area best known locally as Hampstead Village, this elegant double-fronted house has three bedrooms and a wonderfully engaging terraced rear garden. This is the first time the house has been up for sale in over 40 years.
Entrance is across a front garden which slopes with the gentle rise of Christchurch Hill. A flight of stone steps leads to the front door, behind which a central hallway runs right through to the back door and multi-levelled garden beyond. To the left of the hall is a wonderfully bright double reception room, with a large window to the street and a striking pair of elongated sash windows that look out to the garden. Across the hall is a further reception space currently arranged as a library, and another garden-facing room that is used as a study.
The lower ground floor contains the kitchen and dining space that span the width of the house. The steep relief of Christchurch Hill means that the lower level has excellent levels of light captured by two sash windows that face the front garden. Behind the kitchen is a cool pantry. Also at this level is a bathroom and a large utility room. Vaults that sit beneath the rear garden provide versatile storage space.
The bedrooms, of which there are three, are found on the first floor. The l-shaped master suite overlooks the garden, and has a walk-through wardrobe that leads to an en-suite bathroom. Two large bedrooms flank a family bathroom at the front of the house.
The house retains many of the most important and elegant original details, including beautiful floorboards, sash windows, architraves and range cooker, whilst supporting the sensibilities of modern design.
Christchurch Hill is one of the finest roads in the Hampstead Village area, home to some of London’s most beautiful Victorian houses. The house is situated just a few minutes’ walk to the extraordinary open spaces of Hampstead Heath. The shops and restaurants of Hampstead High Street and Belsize Park are a short walk away. The area contains some of London’s best independent schools.
Nearby Hampstead station has access to the Northern Line.
