PROPERTY PICK: A Leafy London Pad

Within easy reach of the capital’s bright lights, theatres, watering holes and eateries, but just far enough to be quiet and calm, an apartment at Hampstead Reach could be your ideal London bolthole

This summer, Glentree New Homes will unveil the completed Hampstead Reach, a landmark new development in Golders Green, north-west London. Built by Barratt London, Hampstead Reach will comprise five seven-bedroom detached houses and 39 two- and three-bedroom apartments.

The renowned area of Hampstead Garden Suburb represents one of the capital’s most iconic examples of Arts and Crafts architecture, with the majority of homes in the area dating from the early twentieth century. With modern developments a rare addition to the area, Hampstead Reach offers a unique opportunity for buyers to purchase a new property in this sought-after residential enclave. The aesthetic of the development is inspired by the local vernacular, with building materials including red bricks and hand made roof tiles.

Residents at Hampstead Reach will benefit from the ease of living offered by a 12-hour on-site concierge, as well as gated underground parking and communal gardens. Internally, the layout of the apartments similarly takes inspiration from the period design of the area, incorporating the spacious dimensions associated with early twentieth century design, traditional-look Amtico wood floors and large windows to make the most of the views of the central gardens, which are interspersed with stylish water features. The luxury homes are finished to the standard expected by today’s most discerning buyers, with fittings by Grohe, Miele, Philippe Starck and Siemens. Other features include underfloor heating and comfort cooling temperature controls, in addition to lifts to all floors and CCTV security. Selected ground floor apartments include private gardens or terraces with some first and second floor units benefiting from a balcony.

The area of NW11 is considered one of London’s most prime residential locations, with an abundance of parks, chic boutiques and restaurants, excellent schools and transport links.  

Prices from £995,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and from £1.4million for a three-bedroom apartment
