This week we’re eyeing up a rental pad that’s seen many footballers pass through its doors and a Belsize Park property that’s ripe for refurbishment.
Regent’s Park Terrace, NW1, £4,835,500
Considering how near Primrose Hill’s substantial parkland is to this house, the diminutive garden is hardly an off-putting factor. And there’s an adorable terrace, which is a perfect spot for a morning coffee on a sunny day.
The five-bedroom house has been impeccably decorated offering just the right balance between character and neutrals with stand out entertaining space in the reception room and open plan kitchen and dining room.

The rooms are filled with light from the elegant sash windows. Period features are in good nick and have been carefully highlighted by the white-toned walls and painted wooden floors. Otherwise, it’s a toss up between the original fireplaces and the three gorgeously appointed bathrooms for the most covetable feature crown.

Winnington Close, N2, £4,500pw
Rumour has it that several Premier League stars have called this lavishly appointed seven-bedroom rental home.
They must enjoy the pool, sauna, gym and cinema, as well as the staff quarters, carriage driveway and large landscaped garden.
Heathgate, 020 7435 3344
First time buy
Bassett Street, NW5, £395,000
Perfect for the first timer with their heart set on a Kentish Town pad, but perhaps a budget that won’t quite stretch to a period conversion, this apartment is part of a development of five new homes close to Queen’s Crescent market.
The homes have individually designed kitchens and bathrooms (the image used here is of a differently priced unity), underfloor heating and high quality appliances. Not bad for your first home.
Goldschmidt & Howland, 020 7043 4433
Upper Park Road, NW3, £1,295,000
This two-bedroom, two-bathroom flat on the raised ground floor of a semi-detached Victorian house has the potential to become a quite magnificently proportioned Belsize Park beauty.
Ornate cornicing and a marble fireplace are complemented by 11ft high ceilings – just get rid of the carpets and re-think the built in storage.
There’s a delightful private terrace overlooking the large garden, which a keen container gardener can spend blissful days re-arranging.
