A charming first time flat, a jolly Kentish Town terrace and a substantial renovation project all make the cut this week.

Falkland Road, NW5, £1,500,000

This house seems to reverse the old adage of the camera adding 10 pounds – perhaps the jolly shade of red it’s painted is particularly slimming. Fashion editors take note. From the outside the early Victorian terrace, on a popular Kentish Town street filled with a jumble of similarly colourful homes, appears to be as narrow as they come. But step inside and the four-bedroom house seems to open up with full width rooms still cosy but not cramped. The ground floor open plan kitchen-dining-reception room covers the full depth of the property and leads through to the garden.

This one-bedroom garden flat on a pleasant residential street is ideal for the solo first time buyer. The open plan reception room/kitchen may be on the small side but with glass doors opening on to the garden as well as side windows, it is flooded with light, giving it a lovely airy feel.

There are also abundant typical Muswell Hill touches in this period conversion, from the pretty stained glass in the door to the patterned tiles on the stairs but the garden and off-street parking will clinch it for most.

This detached house has been in the same ownership for 45 years and as such certain parts of the house have a somewhat time capsule feel: those red and blue kitchen tiles would probably have to be carefully sourced in a vintage shop if you needed a replacement.

Covering 2,600sq ft with a large garden, double garage and seven-figure price tag, this presents a major redevelopment opportunity but with that comes a lot of scope to create the ultimate suburban pad for those with funds.
