Belsize Park

Belsize Park is one of London’s most beautiful and unique areas, which makes its exclusive properties highly sought-after. This is an idyllic community of young professionals, A-listers, artists, families, and the well-to-do of London all nestled in a surprisingly peaceful setting considering NW3 is a prime city location. The charm of Belsize Park lies in its exceptional architecture, community attitude, and lush urban greenery. PropertyTime Estate Agents in Belsize Park frequently have properties available to buy and rent in this area.

Belsize Park boasts a fine mix of some of London’s most beautiful architectural styles of the modern era. These include 19th-century Italianate white stucco houses, as well as Queen Anne red brick buildings, William Morris-inspired Arts and Crafts buildings, Art Deco apartments, and Victorian terraces. The area of Belsize Village has particularly maintained its historic charm and small-town atmosphere by retaining these stylish building fronts.

An area well-known for its cafes and boutique shops, Belsize Park favours the unique and charming over the homogenous, and demands high quality from all its local businesses. Its high streets are full of delicatessens, bakeries, cafes, book shops, exclusive homewares/interior decorating businesses, and boutique estate agents. One of its busiest and most picturesque commercial areas is Haverstock Hill, while England’s Lane offers a more subdued local shopping experience including the acclaimed local cafes Chamomile and Ginger & White. Belsize Park even enjoys its own weekly Farmers Market along Eton Avenue.

Although Belsize Park doesn’t have its own green park space, Primrose Hill Park is just a short walk from the village centre. Hampstead Heath lies just to the north and is also easily accessible by foot, meaning that two of London’s best hill-top park views are practically on the doorstep of the Belsize Park area. The ‘Belsize Walk’ from Primrose Hill to Parliament Hill takes you all the way through this enviable suburb with many points of historic and aesthetic interest.

There are excellent local schools in the Belsize Park area, both state and independent. The Abacus Belsize Primary School is a recent addition to the area brought about with local initiative and the support of the Belsize community, and it offers a high standard of inclusive primary education. The Trevor-Roberts School offers co-ed preparatory education with impressive exit results. Notable girls schools include The Village School (‘Outstanding’ Ofsted), as well as Sarum Hall School and St Christopher’s which are both noted as having excellent academic standards in recent ISI inspections.

The local Fine Arts College offers GCSE and A-level studies for the Belsize area, and is an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ school (2012).
