For many, owning property in London is a life goal, and it’s not hard to see why when you have a quick scroll through The Modern House. Properties of all shapes and sizes, each more inspiring than the last. Regardless of whether you’re actually house shopping or just browsing, The Modern House can be a time-consuming website, a difficult dream to escape from. So, with the help of The Modern House’s curation, we’re back with another weekly instalment of London property of the week and this time we’re travelling north to Hampstead for Christchurch Hill in NW3.


Christchurch Hill, London NW3

A hidden gem in Hampstead 

£4,250,000 via Modern House


Hampstead is well-known for being one of London’s most desirable locations, and it’s in no small part thanks to houses like this one. Located in Hampstead Village, this double-fronted 3-bedroom house also has a vivacious terraced rear garden. This is the first time the house has been up for sale in more than 40 years.


Double windows look out onto Christchurch Hill at the front of the property while two elongated sash windows look out over the garden, a view afforded by the study as well. The garden has a natural feel to it, the floral arrangements are organised without being regimented and features like the beautiful original spiral staircase have been maintained.

The interior of the property follows in the same vein as the garden, organised but not sterile. The house feels like a home, surrounded by books, quirky design products sit alongside antiques, art and modern pieces.

All 3 bedrooms can be found on the first floor, the master bedroom overlooks the garden and features an en-suite bathroom located at the other end of a walk-through wardrobe. This property prides itself on its traditional elegance, and why shouldn’t it?
