Just four miles from Trafalgar Square, Hampstead Heath and its surrounding areas offer superb properties in a glorious setting enabling residents to enjoy the very best of both worlds
Heath End House, Hampstead Heath, NW3
Constructed circa 1778, this fine Grade II listed Georgian residence boasts an array of illustrious owners, including Dame Henrietta (founder of Hampstead Garden Suburb) and Canon Samuel Barnett (social reformer) between 1899-1913 as their country retreat. Novelist and playwright Sir Hall Caine made structural alterations to the property in 1923, followed by reconfiguration works in 1955 to a layout largely resembling the house as it stands today.
The accommodation is spectacular, some rooms take in a view of the lovely mature gardens, others have far reaching views from this elevated position abutting Hampstead Heath. The house offers seven bedrooms, although two are currently used as reception rooms, and four bathrooms. Its secluded setting provides privacy and tranquillity, allowing places to unwind around the garden in either the summer house, studio or beside the pond.
