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.

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.

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.
