There is no denying the charms of Hampstead Village, and for those people looking for property in a prime London location that’s a little different, this should be the first place to explore.
Steeped in history
Even in a city as rich in history as London, Hampstead’s own is pretty impressive. It has been an exclusive residential area for hundreds of years, attracting influential writers, artists, actors, thinkers and entrepreneurs. Hampstead has the highest concentration of blue plaques in London, celebrating its illustrious residents. Even today, Hampstead boasts more millionaires than any other London location.
A prime location with prime property
Hampstead Village is the location of some of the most expensive properties in London, yet interest is always high. There’s much to draw people to this unique village, just four miles from central London. Period cottages sitting in winding streets and tree-lined roads provide peace and quiet very rarely found in the city. You can also find an eclectic mix of houses and flats, from Regency homes, Georgian mansions, Victorian terraced houses and small cottages to thirties homes and modern developments.
Much to see and do
While the many and varied styles of property help create a unique charm to Hampstead Village, it’s the bohemian charm and community vibe of the high street that really creates the village feel. High street brands sit alongside designer boutiques; independent shops and restaurants offer exceptional food while excellent local pubs, cafes and galleries provide social hotspots.
Looking for outdoor space? The 800 acres of Hampstead Heath is perfect for picnicking, or you can take the plunge in the famous swimming ponds. Hampstead is also home to three theatres that continue to champion the arts and its own cinema where you can watch films in the comfort of leather armchairs.
If you do need to travel into central London or beyond, Hampstead has its own tube station (Zones 2 and 3), regular bus services and the M1 is only 15 minutes away.
Exceptional choices for schools
The exceptional choice of schools in Hampstead makes this location stand out for families. There’s a selection of state and independent schools. All state schools have good or higher ratings from Ofsted and Hampstead has the largest selection of private primary and preparatory schools in London. Schools include the Hampstead Hill Pre-Preparatory and Nursery School, University College School for Boys, Queen Mary’s School for Girls and South Hampstead High School for Girls. Hampstead is also only a short distance to the London Business School and University College London.
If you want something different from living in London, Hampstead could be for you.
