The arrival of the railways brought extended urban development to Camden in the nineteenth century and this pocket of north London is full of Victorian properties.
Be they terraced or semi-detached, these buildings are very versatile and have been adapted for all sorts of uses over the years, from family homes to apartments for young professionals.
Those that have remained intact as single houses over the century and a half or so since they were first built are particularly special if they retain original period features.
Cornices, fireplaces and wooden floorboards all add a special character to a home, which is almost impossible to fake.
