Tucked away on the first floor of this highly regarded and architecturally stunning former Victorian school (Grade II listed) is this charming two bedroom apartment, with two bath/shower rooms and ample storage throughout, a south-west facing aspect, ensuring lots of natural light, and over-looking a tranquil and gorgeous communal courtyard garden, with York stone paving, seating areas and ornamental fountain.
Hampstead Gates is a landmark building on the corner of Ryland Road and Prince of Wales Road. Converted to a meticulously high standard circa 15 years ago by Italian and English architects, the building and apartments within are synonymous with style, panache and vision, blending classic Victoriana with modernity effortlessly. Beautifully stocked and well tended mature communal gardens surround the pretty building with a central quadrangle.
Internally, the apartment comprises, briefly, vestibule, boiler room/store, utility room, built-in hall storage cupboards, guest cloakroom and shower room, an open-plan living and dining room, with beautiful wooden flooring throughout, integrated kitchen and breakfast bar, master bedroom with built-in wardrobes plus walk-in wardrobe-cum-dressing room and spacious en-suite bathroom. Off the living room through double doors is a second bedroom or snug-cum-study. Every window overlooks the pretty courtyard garden.
Enviably located close to many local independent shops, restaurants, vibrant cafes, artisan bakeries, the Camden Brewery, the refurbished Victorian swimming baths and gymnasium, the Collège Français Bilingue de Londres (cfbl), library, post office and green open spaces of Talacre Gardens, Primrose Hill, Parliament Hill and Hampstead Heath beyond. There are outstanding excellent public transport links on your doorstep – the Overground at Kentish Town West as well as the Tube (Northern Line zone 2) and Thameslink connection.
The building also benefits from daytime porterage and an enhanced camera security system.
