A stunning, peaceful and versatile fully refurbished substantial family house extending to 3,401 sq ft (316 sqm) of internal space offering an unrivalled position directly opposite Primrose Hill in the Conservation Area.
The property has been dressed for viewing and marketing purposes by an interior designer to give an indication of how the very flexible space can be used but is offered to rent on an unfurnished basis. It may be possible to rent this property on a fully or part furnished basis subject to negotiation.
About the Property
The exterior masonry of the house is tastefully painted in Farrow and Ball’s Vert de Terre, known to be “a delicate and aged green” and the interiors are in the soft and warming Wimborne White.
The property is approached via secure private gate into the landscaped front patio laid to natural stone and the house is entered via the raised ground floor. Once within and through the internal full height pastel stained glass secondary door, you find yourself in the entrance hall with curved feature wall. Two sets of double doors, also full height in keeping with the proportions of the generous ceiling height, lead you to the double reception room with beautiful herringbone flooring.

About the Area
Primrose Hill has a character all of its own and at the summit of this grassy hill are some spectacular protected views across London. Now a Royal Park, it sits just by Regent’s Park and London Zoo and was purchased from Eton College in 1841 to extend the parkland available to the poor people of north London for open-air recreation.
The park is closed to the public between 10pm and 6am and is soon to be gated at weekends to faciliate park closures for events such as Bonfire Night and New Year’s Eve where the views of the fireworks on the London skyline are fabulous.
Regent’s Park Road curves round from Chalk Farm station (Northern Line) on Haverstock Hill to Gloucester Avenue where Regent’s Park’s Outer Circle meets Camden. The boutique independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants further along on Regent’s Park Road are a unique part of the village atmosphere that Primrose Hill has always offered.
This is a truly special home.
