It’s always a delight to walk down Fitzjohns Avenue (which runs from Hampstead Village to Swiss Cottage) with Hampstead Heath nearby too, with its impressive dwellings and many trees, shrubs, and birdsong – you feel a million miles from the High Street with its ample shops and transport links, which is just a couple of streets away. No wonder Sigmund Freud chose this area as his long-term home, the house he lived in, a stone’s throw from the Avenue, is now preserved as a museum to Freud and his achievements, it’s well worth a visit.
The apartment’s entrance is located on Netherhall Gardens, a quiet residential street off of the Avenue. It is shared with the three other apartments in this purpose built block, it has a patio with a vast amount of greenery, which continues through the shared garden grounds. The entrance is clean and smart, a theme which continues as you enter the apartment itself.
On entering this beautiful three-bedroom, two bathroom apartment, which is situated on the second floor, you are immediately hit by an abundance of natural light from its many windows. As the vendors say “when you look out of the windows all you see is greenery and not someone else’s window” if you’re looking for natural light without compromising privacy, this apartment scores ten out of ten.
The views of the communal gardens are a joy, especially from the large bay windows of the living room, as are the features within the apartment, a fireplace will add a cosiness to autumn and winter evenings and the high ceilings throughout bring an added dimension of space to the already generous 915 square feet of lateral living space.
The vendors comment: “we bought this home for many good reasons; its proximity to outstanding schools for our children, the three full size double bedrooms, the bright south/southeast facing bay windows in the living room which offer plenty of sunlight on warm days, plus we have access to, not only the gardens surrounding the property, but a communal roof terrace too! Before buying this property we viewed over 50 others, we didn’t have to think twice when we first came here, we made an offer immediately! Nothing else we saw offered anything close to the specifications, especially in the size of the three bedrooms and all round quality of this apartment.”
As well as boasting the three double sized bedrooms, the master with a large en suite, all rooms offer fantastically planned inbuilt storage. All fittings are to the highest standard, especially the kitchen which alongside the living room is a favourite place for the family to mingle, with the roof terrace taking precedence on sunny days and evenings.
When not at home the family recommend visiting Hampstead Heath, for both walking and running and out of all the amazing independent eateries and shops in the area, they especially single out Le Pain Quotidien, the widely acclaimed Belgium based bakery and eatery which offer the ultimate in breakfasts!
“We will miss the bright and airy feel of the apartment, the close proximity to the Heath and the Village feel within the area.” The vendors add.
Remember, the vendors previously looked at over 50 properties before finding this one, it has: three full sized bedrooms with ample storage, two bathrooms, it is spacious and light throughout with high ceilings, this is especially apparent in the living room with a beautiful fireplace too, wonderful views without compromising privacy, a quiet communal garden filled with greenery plus the added bonus of access to a roof terrace. If you’re looking for a three bedroom apartment with more than many others offer, we think you may only need to view one property, this is the one.
