For taste and tradition, here’s a home that’s English to the very hem of its tailcoat. Such is the gracefulness of the period sitting room, arrayed at each turn with antique furniture and oil paintings, that one might perceive the hushed tinkle of silverware on crockery or quiet murmur of discreet conversation between gentlemen of an era long past. But you’ll still find modern comforts aplenty, while Hampstead is a quintessentially English quarter which captures the best of London past and present. Wander its villagey streets, ramble upon the Heath, or speed into the bustling west end in a jiffy.
Your host moved to London after university to train as an accountant and has lived in the area for over 25 years. Now a finance director, he divides his time between his marvellous London home and his home in the South of France.
Home is his castle
An antique grandfather clock bids a courtly welcome within the hallway, ushering you into the palatial sitting room. Antique walnut furniture perches before a fireplace of ornate elegance, while oils by British painters hang on walls tinted the softest blue. Air musings on art or philosophy over coffee on one of the cushy sofas, before moving to the stately dining table for supper for six. Rustle up a hearty repast in the chic kitchen, or give yourself over to the master bedroom. Mahogany antiques furnish the room in handsome style, from the king size bedstead to a lustrous chest of drawers, while floaty curtains command a window of impressive proportions. Pad across the ensuite’s limestone floor to the huge shower cabin, or lose yourself in a lovely lather in the marble bathroom. Armfuls of light beckon you into the cosy double, where you’ve a sumptuous king size bed surrounded by more grand antique furniture.
You’re right next to Belsize Village, a candy-coloured enclave of artisan coffee shops and independent restaurants. Picnic upon Primrose Hill, then turn the other way for a spot of kite-flying on Parliament Hill or a refreshing splash about in Hampstead ponds. With its tearooms, bookshops, classy boutiques and cobbled streets, Hampstead is exquisitely charming. In fact, so sweetly village-like are your surrounds that you may forget just how close is central London. The tube from Swiss Cottage to buzzing Bond Street takes a tiny seven minutes.
