A detailed history
Marcus Parfitt are marketing this exceptional example of a great house in a wonderful location. I promise, you’ll find it hard to resist. By Catherine Golding
Hampstead is full of houses with history and this charming, Grade II Listed, early Neo Georgian family house – built and designed by Horace Field in circa 1893 – is no exception. It is located within this highly coveted, private gated enclave of family houses which are built on what were the pleasure grounds of Hampstead’s first Spa and the delightful property on Gainsborough Gardens is available through Marcus Parfitt.
It offers spacious and well-kept accommodation and affords views of its own private gardens and the vast communal grounds from all of the principal rooms.
The deceptively spacious accommodation features four to five reception rooms – including a wonderful two storey orangery style extension, a large bespoke hand-crafted kitchen/breakfast room and five bedrooms.
See for yourself, just look at the rooms shown in the images – they showcase what is great about this home. The kitchen makes a feature of the sink and cooker areas – the former filling the vast bay at one end of the room and there’s a mix of period and contemporary; the old style school radiators against the modern downlighters. The reception areas have lovely bays too, as well has extremely detailed coving, feature fireplaces and stylish flooring. The orangery is so lovely and bright with the bonus of being designed with a section of glass floor, which acts as a lightwell for the room below and even the staircase illustrates true craftsmanship with it’s beautiful banister, runner carpet and amazing architrave around the doorway.
All incredibly striking, together they act as a detailed history of houses of this type and homes of this area.
