A beautiful flat in the heart of historic and fashionable Hampstead Village, a neighbourhood associated with many artists, writers and celebrities. The flat is on the first floor up one flight of communal stairs, above a shop in a landmark period building with two other apartments in the building. The flat has beautiful, original fireplaces and wooden floors in the living areas, while the two bedrooms are carpeted. The master bedroom has a double bed and a closet. The second bedroom has two single beds, and one can be stored under the other if only one is needed. Please note that if both beds are used, they take up most of the space in the room and there is currently no storage. The large living room has a double sofa bed which expands the sleeping options.
The look of flat is modern, uncluttered and stylish. There are two comfortable sofas (one of which is also the sofa-bed) and leather chair in the spacious living room, and TV. The kitchen has a dining table and seating for six. It is fully fitted and well equipped with everything you might need to cook during your stay, and both regular and microwave ovens and a dishwasher. A washing machine/tumble dryer is also available in the flat for your use, as is high speed wi-fi internet. All bed linens and towels are provided.
The flat has wooden floors and large sash windows giving it lots of light and a great view onto the charming buzzy Hampstead High Street with its up-market shops, restaurants, patisseries and pubs. The view through the front windows onto the High Street is excellent for people watching! This is a very safe neighbourhood and the flat is one minute's walk to Hampstead Underground station from where you can be in Camden Town in under 10 minutes, and central London's West End in around 15-20 minutes. There are also bus connections right outside your front door to St Paul's in the City (the financial district). It is less than 10 minutes' walk from beautiful Hampstead Heath, London's largest wild open green space for fantastic walks, bathing in natural ponds (open all year round for the very brave) or an open air swimming pool at Parliament Hill, and breathtaking views across London. Hampstead is a very upmarket and select part of London which manages to be both villagey and charming, but at the same time cosmopolitan and trendy. If you want to step out of the front door into the heart of Hampstead and all it has to offer, then you really cannot better this location and flat.
I live nearby and am always on hand for any problems that I can help with or local advice I can offer. I can also arrange a driver to bring you to and from your airport, mid-stay cleaning, and babysitting with an excellent babysitter, all payable locally.
I am happy to be flexible about check in and check out times, wherever possible, if there is no other booking that day. Late check-ins -after 9pm during the week, and after 7pm at weekends (Friday - Sunday) - will be subject to a small additional fee. Please let me know at the time of booking if you plan to check in late.
Please note, the flat does not have a parking space, and parking long-term is problematic in Hampstead. We do not recommend you rent a car during your stay here - but a number of local driveways are rented privately on a daily basis and I can provide details if needed.
