"There has always been something fresh and youthful about Primrose Hill," says Andrew Ellinas, the Director of Central London estate agent Sandfords. "Although the period properties provide a historical backdrop, the residents and their ' joie de vivre' lends NW1 a buzzing air. We can't get enough houses for sale in Primrose Hill. The demand is very much from families who want immediate access to good schools and green open spaces, as well as a location within walking distance of London's West End."
Houses and flats for sale in Primrose Hill that have been designed by lauded architect John Nash are often the first to go under offer. These well proportioned properties bear white stucco façades and are often divided up into generous apartments, although complete houses do come up for sale and are much coveted by high-net worth individuals.
Before the likes of Sadie Frost, Kate Moss, Jude Law and Ewan McGregor moved into Primrose Hill, one of the best things to see was the view from the hilly park. All that changed in the mid 1990s when the Primrose Hill set came together and peaked with the making of the cult film Love, Honour and Obey in 2000. Suddenly the view from Primrose Hill was second on the list of things to see, such was the celeb-spotting hysteria.
However, Primrose Hill's charms were known to many before the turn of the century. American poet Sylvia Plath lived in the neighbourhood during the 1950s and wrote 'when I came to my beloved Primrose Hill, with the golden leaves, I was full of such joy.’ It is reputed that Fitzroy Road was Plath's favourite street in NW1, and blue plaque situated at number 3 Chalcot Square commemorates her life.
