Our pick of this week’s best property deals and hottest homes to buy, develop, or rent in north London.

This neo-Georgian, grade II-listed property built in 1893 by Primrose Hill-born architect Horace Field is on the market for £7.25mThis neo-Georgian, grade II-listed property built in 1893 by Primrose Hill-born architect Horace Field is on the market for £7.25m

Big buy

In the heart of Hampstead £7,250,000 isn’t your biggest buy – in fact it’s a fairly shrug-offable figure in an area that’s used to eight-figure asking prices. But let’s not pretend it’s cheap. So what do you get for that money?

A neo-Georgian, grade II-listed property built by Primrose Hill-born architect Horace Field (who designed swathes of late-Victorian Hampstead) in 1893 in a gated enclave of family houses with huge communal gardens as well as a smaller private one, a two-storey orangery extension, large kitchen/dining room, five bedrooms, off-street parking and a garage, not to mention some stonking interior décor.

First time buyer

What price this view? A mere £600,000 (within budget for a Help to Buy London government loan)What price this view? A mere £600,000 (within budget for a Help to Buy London government loan)

Think first time buyers can’t dream of buying into Hampstead’s famous hilltop London skyline views? Think again. Sure, this one-bedroom house is at the top end of the first time buyer spectrum, but at £600,000 it is still – just – eligible for the Help to Buy London government mortgage guarantee, so long as you can muster up a mortgage on £570,000.

And slummy first home this ain’t: on the fifth floor of a portered Belsize Park block with a fitted kitchen, sparkling bathroom and fitted wardrobes in the bedroom, not forgetting that view, this is a hot buy for any first timers.

Milton Road, Benham & ReevesMilton Road, Benham & Reeves

Anyone dying to find somewhere to put their own personal stamp on won’t want to pull out a newly installed kitchen/laminate floor/bathroom suite, even if it’s not to their taste so this completely unmodernised terraced property in Highgate is the perfect find.

Backing on to the Parkland Walk, the four-bedroom Milton Park house comes with potential to extend and is packed with original Edwardian features, ripe for restoration by a new owner. And £1.2million for a house of this size in Highgate should leave a little wiggle room in the budget for any improvements desired.

Rental
