Local life

There is a warm, calm sense of home.

Mrs Clarke

As you drive through the large electric gates and see Foxgrove House your shoulders lower, your grin broadens and you feel at home. When you open the front door you are welcomed with a warm and calm sense of home that makes you instantly at ease and comfortable - far from the crowds and in a bubble of serenity.

There is so much to discover in this beautifully restored and remodelled home.
The wide entrance hall has lots of space to drop off the shopping and hang the coats. Mr Clarke is impressed with the super durable choice of ceramic tiles for an area of the home that will see lots of comings and goings. The secretive looking door on the right hand side lures you to take a peek. You are treated to a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves and enough space for armchairs and the dog, perfect for enjoying a book and a glass of wine. It's more private members club than civic library.
Head a little further down the hall and a wide double set of doors leads to the huge living room. The wood panelling, solid oak floors and two original open fireplaces give the room a grand, traditional character. The front half has a large bay window to watch who is coming down the drive and the rear half has french doors leading to the patio area.


"I love the kitchen. It’s massive and has everything you could dream of in a family kitchen. Brand new electric Aga, floating island, marble worktops, handcrafted cabinets that have so much storage, a pantry and french doors that look out to the gorgeous garden. Kitchen heaven."




Past the stairs is that kitchen, that beautiful kitchen. While the rest of the downstairs has a traditional charm, the kitchen is more industrial chic. The mix of smooth plaster, whitewashed brick walls and marble worktops is stunning. Mrs Clarke adores the dining part of the kitchen that is framed by a glass wall that looks out to the long garden and the oak framed summer house at the bottom.

It’s then up the long stairs, past a small landing looking over the garden, and to the first floor with three bedrooms and the main bathroom. The master bedroom is a thing of calm serenity. From the bed you look through a large his and hers walk-in dressing area and into the en-suite spa, which boasts a vintage tub and huge walk in shower. Mrs Clarke could spend days in here pampering herself.
The other two bedrooms have been individually styled. Our favourite is the guest bedroom with two windows and wood panelled walls washed with Skimming Stone Farrow & Ball paint. This home has all the luxury touches.

"The top floor offers peace and tranquility. The office is a haven big enough for three desks to do homework or work from home."




A second staircase leads up to the top floor where there is a bright office, another bedroom, a large bathroom and then the cinema room big enough for a crowd of movie enthusiasts.

Summary

  • Family Factor : Big garden and a summer house
  • X Factor : Beautifully renovated and decorated
  • Xtra Factor : Electric gates will make you feel like a pop star (if you actually aren't one)
  • Our favourite part We love the large living room. When both fires are roaring and all of our family and friends are over, it is a magical place for a party. In the summer we have the doors open and the children and dog run in and out all day long.

Serene living in The Village

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.

  • Closest village/town: This is The Village darling
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: Melrose and Morgan is all Mrs C needs to stay alive
  • Supermarket: Just call Ocado
  • Pubs: The Holly Bush is an old favourite but The Horshoe is a modern classic
  • Walks: Head to The Heath
