Camden house description

Ideal home exhibition

Take a deep breath, because Bigwood Road is very much the stuff that dreams are made of. Picture a spacious, sunny home, designed by Lutyens, looking out across a rolling lawn, at the end of which a tree house perches high amidst tangled branches. Churchill once took tea in the summerhouse, and we’re certain that the elegant sitting room has held its fair share of luminaries, too. Hampstead Garden Suburb is one of the best-preserved Victorian neighbourhoods in the world, and as you pass timbered cottages, red pillar-boxes and mature gardens, you’ll feel as though you’re in a remote English village. But don’t be fooled, you’re surprisingly close to the centre of London.

In charge

Your hosts run a marketing company, and flit between London and New York. Regulars at the National Theatre, they love hosting parties, the livelier the better.

As good as it gets

Such is the size and ambition of this three-storey home that this description is in no sense exhaustive – to get a true sense of its beauty you’ll simply have to come and experience it for yourself. The ground floor is dominated by the pale sitting room, violet velvet sitting daintily upon the original parquet floor. Throw open the doors to the garden and let the little ones explore the tree house while you lay a picnic cloth on the lawn, or retreat to the country-style kitchen and warm your hands on the Aga. The dining room combines twinkling glass and ethereal ghost chairs, and your hosts have thoughtfully provided an extensive library. All five bedrooms are quite stunningly pretty, while the four bathrooms contain powerful showers, natural tiling, and in one very special case, a deep roll topped bathtub.

Onwards and upwards

You’re not far from the ancient woodlands of Hampstead Heath, where you can fly a kite on Parliament Hill, swim in the bathing ponds or enjoy a generous slice of National Trust cake at Kenwood House. A short cab ride away, Hampstead village combines cobbles and designer boutiques in equal measure, and when it comes to eating out, you’ve almost too much choice. All this, and the tube from Golders Green to Leicester Square takes just over twenty minutes.
