We came here from Paris because we wanted to experience the real London and English life, without the noise, pollution and touristic character of the centre of London. We are 20 minutes from Eurostar with access to Belgium or Paris, 30 minutes from Heathrow, 15 minutes from London’s premium Brent Cross shopping centre. Near many coffee shops and convenient grocery food shopping. We are near the 5 movie theatres of Hampstead, historical churches, the Hampstead Heath and most important, its interesting international crowd.

Solly Godsi purchased this house in 1998
We bought this house in 1998, and were very happy here, due to the excellent green environment, quiet and friendly neighbourhood, facilities assured by the Barnett council, security at day and night, excellent service by the council.
We chose this property also because it had a good position , occupying the highest spot in Church Mount, with a view to Highgate, its size, quiet, and convenient location, 5 minutes from East Finchley Tube and the Institute.
Description of Hampstead
Hampstead is an affluent area of London, England, 4 miles (6.4 km) north-west of Charing Cross. Known for its intellectual, liberal, artistic, musical and literary associations and for Hampstead Heath, a large, hilly expanse of parkland, the largest in all London. It has some of the most expensive housing in the London area. The village of Hampstead has more millionaires within its boundaries than any other area of the United Kingdom.
Cultural attractions in the area include the Freud Museum, Keats House, Kenwood House, Fenton House, The Isokon building, Burgh House, and the Camden Arts Centre. The large Victorian Hampstead Library and Town Hall was recently converted and extended.
To the north and east of Hampstead, and separating it from Highgate, is London's largest ancient parkland, Hampstead Heath, which includes the well-known and legally-protected view of the London skyline from Parliament Hill. The Heath, a major place for Londoners to walk and 'take the air', has three open-air public swimming ponds; one for men, one for women, and one for mixed bathing, which were originally reservoirs for drinking water and the sources of the River Fleet.
Local activities include major open-air concerts on summer Saturday evenings on the slopes below Kenwood House, book and poetry readings, fun fairs on the lower reaches of the Heath, period harpsichord recitals at Fenton House, Hampstead Scientific Society and Hampstead Photographic
