From a fabulous first time buy to a restoration opportunity sensation, here are the properties on the market you need to know (or be nosy) about

Fixer Upper

This five-storey period home with eight bedrooms and three acres of gardens is a prime piece of north London real estate on one of West Hampstead’s most popular residential roads.

The décor has seen better days but there’s no major work that needs doing, plus there’s the option to knock it through into one big family home or keep it as a duo or trio of flats.

The bare bones are there with high ceilings throughout and beautiful bay sash windows looking out over Canfield Gardens. At £3.35 million it’s hardly a steal so you’d need deep pockets to tart it up but it has the potential to be a real show stopper.

Big Buy

The opulent Chester Terrace in Regent’s Park, NW1, has 99 bays but a budget isn’t a problem.

Behind the Grade I listed neoclassical John Nash façade is this stunning five-bedroom home, complete with a reception hall, dining room, kitchen, drawing room, three vaults, a roof terrace and a media room.

As the property is set over five floors you’ll probably be grateful for the list. There are high ceilings throughout, as well as a garage and a private road and garden serving only the residents. At £13,75million it’s certainly a big one, but you get a lot of bang for your buck.

First Time Buyer

At £599,950 this one-bed apartment just squeaks in under the revised Help to Buy scheme for London, and has features you would normally find on far pricier properties.

Set on the second floor of a freshly restored conversion in Parliament Hill it has tastefully preserved period features including a fireplace, and achingly trendy exposed brickwork in the kitchen.

Even the bathroom is decked out in the ubiquitous subway tiles no London pad can be seen without. The location is mere moments from the Heath and with no onward chain your first foray in to property ownership should be slightly less stressful than normal.

Rental

When renting it’s always preferable to bring your own furniture, although looking at the agency pictures of this Constantine Road flat you’d be forgiven for hoping the current tenants might leave their stylish home décor behind.

At £350 pw (£1,517 pm) this one-bedroom South End Green flat would make an attractive proposition for a young couple or a particularly solvent solo occupant.

Set on the first floor of a period conversion the open plan living area is perfectly shaped to delineate separate areas for cooking, dining and relaxing, with the large bay window letting in plenty of that all-important natural light.
