This area of London, famous for its huge green area of Hampstead Heath, pretty streets and magnificent architecture, has been glorified in many literary works and today is one of the most prestigious and expensive in London.

Here live intellectuals, writers, pop stars, bankers, heads of large companies who need “fresh air, not far from the city.” Their children, accompanied by nannies, go to excellent private and public schools, of which there are a great many.

The housing stock here is represented mainly by houses (both detached and townhouses). There are also several first class apartment buildings and complexes.

Celebrities also take a special interest in Hampstead – the list of famous Hampstead people can stretch for several pages – Lord Byron, Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie, John Le Caret, David Bowie, Elizabeth Taylor, George Michael and many others.
