Hampstead is by common consent a delightful place to live with the Anglo-Saxon words ‘ham’ & ‘stede’ meaning ‘ home-stead ‘ being a most appropriate description. Internationally for its intellectual, liberal, artistic, musical & literary associations as well as for Hampstead Heath; a large, hilly expanse of parkland. Some of the many cultural attractions in the area include the Freud Museum, Keats House & Kenwood House where major summer open-air concerts take place. Overlooking the city skyline Hampstead has many traditional pubs including The Spaniard’s Inn, a local haunt of 18th Century highwayman Dick Turpin. An exceptionally affluent area of London as well as being a highly desirable area to live in with some of the most expensive housing in London – It is said that the village of Hampstead has more millionaires within its boundaries than any other area of the United Kingdom.
Hampstead is home to a lexicon of esteemed individuals; Dame Judy Dench, Thierry Henri, Charles Saatchi, Florence Nightingale, Charles de Gaulle, John Constable, Elizabeth Taylor and Anna Pavlova have called Hampstead home.
HAMPSTEAD PROPERTY – There are smaller houses near Denham Drive, but these smaller and more ‘modest’ homes are still beautiful and fought over. The truly magnificent many-storeyed houses in the centre and the streets leading onto the park are both physically extraordinary, with many five storeys tall and achingly desirable to the rich and famous. All properties here are wonderful; all are to be seized if you possibly can.
