About Hampstead

Hampstead, often known as Hampstead Village, is a picturesque residential area in North West London, bordered by Belsize Park, Chalk Farm, Golders Green and Highgate. Hampstead has strong artistic and literary associations, and continues to attract people looking to escape the City but stay close to the bustle of town. Hampstead has its own tube station on the Northern line and is only seven stops to Tottenham Court Road and under half an hour to Bank. Hampstead Heath overground station also connects the area to the rest of London. Properties in the area have some of the highest values in central London.

Properties in Hampstead

Houses in Hampstead vary considerably, ranging from large, unique Victorian homes to small cottages. Close to the Heath, along roads such as East Heath Road, one will find large Victorian red-brick homes with dramatic bay windows and entrance halls. Closer to the High Street, there are rows of Regency-style terraces, with a few modern properties well woven in to the fabric of the area.

Along smaller streets, such as Flask Walk, are small characterful cottages which enhance the village-like feel of the area. Popular streets in the area include Bishops Avenue, Heath Street, North End Way and Spaniards Road. Due to the size of the houses, the abundance of green space and the high number of quality schools in the area, houses in Hampstead are extremely popular with families.

Living in Hampstead

Families are attracted to the area for its distinct ‘village’ feel, while staying close to the City. The busy high street is home to many independent bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as some high-end pubs. However, there are also many of the local amenities one would expect from a metropolitan area including a range of banks, pharmacies and fashion outlets.

It’s also home to Hampstead Heath, a 790-acre public park with rambling hills, woodlands, and ponds. Situated only six kilometres from Trafalgar Square, Hampstead Heath is an ancient London park and one of London’s most popular open spaces. The diverse landscape and wildlife of the Heath is complimented by three open swimming ponds, a Lido and a historic stately home in the form of Kenwood House.
