Surrounded at once by the leafy parks of Primrose Hill and the grand Victorian townhouses of Hampstead, Belsize Park IV is so calm that you might forget how close the buzzing streets of central London really are. Open and airy like the Heath on a spring morning, Belsize Park IV lulls and refreshes. There’s a cosmopolitan spirit behind its Cambodian touches and minimalist manner, while the bay windows let every surface be bathed in light. Flow onto the balcony, breathe deep the garden air or introduce yourself to the boutiques, tearooms and coffee houses of Hampstead Village – because here, you’ll feel fresh enough to do it all.
Your hosts live in Cambodia. When in town, they think their home is the perfect pied-à-terre and we’re inclined to agree.
With its high ceilings, shiny white surfaces and wide open spaces, this home has an airiness that’s rare. Stretch your legs across the sitting room’s soft carpet and nestle awhile into the speckled sofa. The windows swoop from floor to ceiling and, if you cast your eyes the same way, you’ll see the tall trees aflutter outside. A blonde wood table makes the perfect spot for lunch – especially if you’ve thrown wide the balcony doors. And just as shiny is the modern kitchen, thanks to an excellent stainless steel finish.
There’s a zen-like calm to the bedroom’s white oak furniture, cloud-white palette and African-style figurines, while the bay window brings in beams of daylight. You’ve also a modern cloakroom and bathroom, both well-served by our White Company toiletries and fluffy towels.
Turn one way for the busy shops and pubs of Finchley Road, turn the other for the elegant boutiques and restaurants along Hampstead High Street. When it comes to green spaces, you’ve the grassy breezes of Regent’s Park, the rolling acres of Hampstead Heath and, for those of a sporting persuasion, Lord’s cricket ground. Lest you feel too leafy, the tube from Swiss Cottage to Oxford Circus takes a little more than five minutes.
