                  Car: Not Necessary

                  As mentioned before, unique movie house with cosy sofas for 2 and waitress service. Our very own local stately home; Kenwood House. Keats house, home of the poet, open to the public. Burgh House, another original historical property rarely found in the guide books. Local swimming baths, gym with day pass options for the more sporty minded, plus acres of open space for joggers, yet the heart of the city is only a short tube ride, this area is pretty unique, you will be delighted to have discovered it, urban not suburban, yet green and eclectic, as a long time resident, i hope to pass on my love of London and particularly Belsize park.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1940

                  About the owner: Hello and welcome to my world! As a young school leaver, I fell into the restaurant business, which I did for 12 years and really loved it, I worked my way up to managing a local restaurant, where my son was practically born, luckily I made it to hospital in time, he is now 28 and has presented me with my first grandchild, they live in Barcelona where I hope to add another apartment to the 'stable'. Bringing up my son meant a career change, I became a food stylist, then a stylist, which led to a very low rung of costume design in movies, as I got older I decided to take a risk and switch to Make Up Artist as I always loved that side of the business, also I noticed they left the set hours before I did! and I was getting a little long in the tooth to stand for hours on end on a shoot... Well I inherited this property from my lovely grandpa who came to this country from Poland with just the clothes on his back, and made good as the saying goes. He always said this house would be mine one day, but I never realized he meant it, but he made good on his word, so when my son was six, we moved into the ground floor. There were seven tenants on the two floors above, it was noisy! as the years went by and the tenants left, I didn't replace them, but started converting the house into the 3 lovely apartments they are today. I live on the ground floor and always here to help. Though these days I am a frequent traveller to Barcelona to see my darling Clementine, then I will leave you in the capable hands of my second in command Ro..

                  Why the Owner Chose Camden:
                  Its a beautiful Edwardian house, with large windows that let in a lot of light, its what I love most about it. I have lavished a lot of love and care on this place over the years. I really treasure this place and I hope you will too.
