Big Buy

Regents Park Road, Primrose Hill, NW1, £3,750,000

Facing the hill itself, this three bedroom maisonette is right in the heart of Primrose Hill and is as stylish inside as the area would suggest. As one would hope for a big buy property there are fantastically high ceilings and a brilliant amount of natural light.

On the raised ground floor a series of decorative arched doorways creates a fluid living space and the reception room has views over the green expanse of Primrose Hill through lovely arched windows. The kitchen would be wonderful for entertaining with its expansive bespoke island counter and access to a conservatory-cum-dining area with bi-folding windows.

Downstairs the master suite includes its own bathroom, dressing room and even a private patio garden. There’s also a communal roof terrace, as well as Lutron lighting system and integrated sound system.

Holmdale Road, West Hampstead, NW6, £599,950

Gardens are as rare and precious as gold in north London. Despite the abundance of green spaces for the public (shout out to the Heath) it’s hard to find somewhere with a lawn of one’s own, particularly now that lots of homes have been divided and sub divided again by sellers with dollar signs in their eyes.

This one bedroom garden flat has a veritable goldmine of a garden. It’s private, faces south west, and includes a large lawn with attractively planted borders plus a gravelled patio area for al fresco dining in the Indian summer evenings. Through the French doors you’ll find a large reception room, complete with a clever half level galleried kitchen with sleek grey metro tiles. At £599,950 it zips in under the London Help to Buy scheme with 50k to spare, making it perfect for any nature-loving, green fingered first time buyer.

Fixer Upper

Rokesly Avenue, Crouch End, N8, £999,950

On second thoughts the groovy colour scheme and psychedelic paisley carpets of this Crouch End pad should probably be lovingly preserved as a paean to the days where interior décor was all a bit more daring. Forget bland minimalism and tiresome Scandi cool, it’s all about matching your carpet to your curtains and clashing floral patterns on every surface.

Okay, so perhaps you’ll want to update the property a little, after all the linoleum in the bathroom looks a little grotty. But with 1930s art deco touches still intact, three bedrooms, two reception rooms and a large if somewhat overgrown garden this is a property with, as estate agents say, potential.

Chalk Farm Road, Camden, NW1, £269 pw (£1,123 pcm)

Look at these pictures. Think back to your student digs. Now look at these pictures again. If you’re a parent with children about to enter university you’re either sighing with relief (if they’re headed to the cheaper rents and rainier climes of the North) or clutching your wallet with fear (if they’re staying in London and reading this article).

Trendily dubbed ‘The Stay Club’, this student studio has everything covered. There are two double beds so you can keep one as a sofa slash guest, a private kitchenette with a microwave and fridge (and no housemates to steal your food: the dream) along with free wifi, utensils, cutlery and crockery.

There’s secure bike storage for your ride and a communal lounge to hang out with your new friends, complete with vending machines, TV and games tables. The location is pretty sweet too – right opposite Camden Stables Market. Student living has never looked this swish.
