- Feb. 19, 2014 - LONDON, U.K. --
There are few places in London as coveted as Hampstead. It is favoured by a distinct group of buyers, reports Andrew Ellinas, the Managing Director of Hampstead estate agents Sandfords: “Houses for sale in Hampstead are bought by people who want the best of both worlds. They want a safe, distinguished neighbourhood that has plenty of open space coupled with close proximity to the commercial and social quarters of Central London. Sprawling Hampstead Heath is one of the most motivating factors about NW3. Almost 800 acres of parkland, ponds and sports activities are on the doorstep, attracting families and individuals looking for that oasis of calm in the capital. It’s quite rare for a leading city to offer such an expanse of greenery right at its heart - almost like a slice of rural England has landed in London - and we find our international clientele extremely appreciative of this.”
It is this global fan base that shapes the Hampstead of today. The most recognisable of residences is The Bishop's Avenue - famed for its multi-million pound dwellings. Some of the world's richest and most influential people have chosen to make the avenue their home, drawn in by the mix of Edwardian mansions, development potential and architecturally-
designed modern homes. However, there is more to Hampstead than this über address. The standard of houses for sale in NW3 is generally amazing across the board. Divided into smaller neighbourhoods of Telegraph Hill, Hampstead Garden Suburb, Hampstead Heath, Hampstead Village and Hampstead High Street, property buyers are spoilt for choice. Architectural examples from the Edwardian and Victorian period jostle with Lutyens-style houses and contemporary design. Whether it is a meticulous restoration or a high-specification new build, good Hampstead estate agents are experienced in matching buyers with high-end homes.
Hampstead, however, isn't all about substantial dwellings. A number of the area's beautiful mansion houses have been turned into apartments, and these properties have a unique audience of their own, says Ellinas: "Flats for sale in Hampstead generate lots of interest. They are often snapped up by business owners looking for a base in the capital, or by families who divide their time across different continents. The luxurious apartments we sell tend to have an emphasis on security and low in maintenance, which is perfect for seasonal owner-occupiers."
