South Hampstead Area

South Hampstead is a borough of London located in the northwestern part of the borough of Camden. The Chiltern Main Line is the line that runs west to east between the following: West End Lane to the west and the Chiltern Main Line to the south. There is a line to the north and north-west that follows Broadhurst Gardens, and then a line to the south that will demarcate Hampstead village. Generally speaking, Swiss Cottage neighbourhood is to the west of Belsize Park and north of and to the west of the normally narrowly defined neighbourhood of Swiss Cottage. The exact amount of Fitzjohns Avenue in Hampstead is an arbitrary measure but it includes some areas of Fitzjohns Avenue that leads up to “the village”.

There are so many great things about living in South Hampstead. Its close proximity to Primrose Hill, and the Regent’s Park, as well as its excellent transportation links and the waitrose and all the other amazing specialty shops on the Finchley Road. Although the city is famously cosmopolitan, one of its best assets is its extremely vibrant atmosphere. All these languages are here to be heard: English; French; Japanese; Chinese; American English; and Russian. My property, purchased several years ago for a song, is now worth in the range of two to three millions, so I have been considering selling but I am probably staying in South Hampstead.

A Victorian property magnate, Spencer Maryon Wilson, built a number of beautiful houses that appealed to the middle classes: A number of beautiful houses that bear his name are due to be demolished soon.  Even though some mansions were designed to be a stand-alone property, most were meant to house well-heeled families with servants.

South Hampstead is now a popular residential district for young professionals, young families, including a large concentration of Americans, who need good leisure facilities and are looking for an easy journey into Central London.  The area has become particularly popular with those who work in the City with the extension of the Jubilee Line and direct access to Canary Wharf. These homes, many of them now converted into flats, feature imposing Victorian and Edwardian terraced, semi-detached and detached locations with period details and high ceilings.  There have been some luxury new build developments as well, including some modern buildings.
