For those whose budget is limited but those who crave some outside space in their property a garden flat can provide the ideal solution.
As Alan Mogg, senior sales consultant at Salter Rex estate agent, points out: “If you’ve got pets garden flats are ideal, much more practical than a balcony.
“And of course, around Hampstead, having a garden is desirable as you can sometimes extend into it to create a bit of extra living space.”
A garden flat can often be the best way to snag some outside space in this part of town because so many of the larger Victorian townhouses with small private gardens are now divided into flats.
Lowfield Road, West Hampstead NW6. Available through rhw estates for £525,000
A recently refurbished Victorian flat with a private entrance for the ground floor, the property also boasts a decked garden.
There is dark wood flooring and fresh white walls throughout.
The bay window with window seat in the bedroom is a particularly charming feature.
Fleet Road, Hampstead NW3. Available through Salter Rex for £535,000
This one bedroom ground floor flat is in the middle of a period terrace.
It is located within minutes of Hampstead Heath but anyone looking for a more private outdoor space, the walled patio out back means you can have al fresco breakfast in your pyjamas.
The inside is modern and bright with huge windows, lots of natural light and attractive wooden floorboards.
Parkhill Road, Belsize Park NW3. Available through Hadleigh Residential for £750,000
