Your carriage awaits…
Catherine Golding tells of a charming nineteenth century carriage house on the market for the first time in a generation
If you were to seek out a quintessential Hampstead gem then there’s a good chance this dwelling would be it.
Mount Cottage, on Netherhall Gardens in Hampstead, is on the market with agents Marcus Parfitt – but with all its character and charm we doubt it’ll remain so for long.
It’s a very charming, two-storey, semi-detached carriage house dating from the 1870s – and it’s on the market for the first time in 33 years.
Situated in a coveted enclave of Hampstead, south of the Village, the pretty, double-fronted home is set back from the road behind a high wall and an enclosed, south-facing front garden, which really is lovely.
Arranged over two floors only, the property is exquisite.
It comprises circa 1,431sq ft and offers bright, spacious accommodation including two generous reception rooms, along with a sizeable kitchen/breakfast room plus a separate WC on the ground floor.
The upper floor – connected via a wide staircase – offers a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, plus two further bedrooms. Lastly, on this floor, there is a family bathroom.
External space comes in three different forms: a rear patio off the kitchen, a terrace off the third bedroom and the aforementioned south-facing front garden, which is enclosed and wonderfully peaceful.
So, if you would like transported back the beauty and charm of 19th century Hampstead, then your carriage awaits…
