We tend to feature a lot of modern and modernist houses on the site, but when we feature the odd period find, we’re always amazed at just how popular those are too. With that in mind, check out this five-bedroom Georgian almshouse in London NW1.
It’s in the heart of the capital, but it could be in the heart of a small village many miles away. Obviously you might want to reassess that when you stand outside the place. But we would like to think that once inside this period gem, which is part of a private gated mews beyond Camden High Street, you’ll be able to forget about the hustle and bustle of city life.
The grade II-listed house itself looks pretty well preserved and ripe for a makeover, perhaps looking a little dated on the surface, but once cleared out, likely to be quite an easy job to bring it back to its best and highlight those original features (which include the original wood flooring).
As for space, you are looking at a reception/dining area, a fitted kitchen with utility room, fiver bedrooms (two with en-suite shower and WC facilities) a further family bathroom and guest cloakroom/WC and a conservatory leading to a rear private paved garden. You also get a fully useable attic and secure private parking space too, the latter likely to be quite a selling point.
Not cheap though, as you might have guessed, with offers around the £1,600,000 mark.
