Who doesn't dream of living in Hampstead?

We could wax lyrical about the chic boutiques, the fancy restaurants, the celebs, the intelligentsia of academics, high-brow artists, architects, musical and literary associations but who cares? You want to know what it is like to live in Hampstead. The answer is pretty simple – wonderful.
Mr Clarke has been in and around Hampstead all of his life and he understands that beneath the celeb spotting day trippers there is a friendly community who are busy leading their own lives.
Where else in London can you have such a fine array of educational establishments, have such easy access to The City and the centre of town, be amongst green and pleasant parks and be have one of the best cinemas in London within walking distance? If anyone even tries to shout “Richmond” I hope someone is going to hold me back…

The best place to call home in London? We think so.

The perennial draw of Hampstead Heath – surely London’s favourite park – the prettiness of the period buildings in the Village, the enduring atmosphere of bohemian intellectualism and the array of local boozers sets Hampstead apart.
The lights are burning brighter than ever in every sense of Hampstead – the property market is buzzing, the cultural scene is crackling and the sociable feel is a beacon of community.
