Gina Baksa takes a look at a stunning six-bedroom freehold family home, located on Gloucester Avenue in the heart of fashionable Primrose Hill.
Primrose Hill is one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, with a superb selection of cafes and restaurants, good transport links and the iconic Regent’s Park and London Zoo closeby. The Hill itself was once a hunting ground of Henry VIII’s and also belonged to Eton College.
Today Primrose Hill is open to all and offers iconic views across London from its 63-metre high point. No wonder then that the area is at the top of many discerning families’ wish lists when choosing a home in the much-desired NW3 postcode.
A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a fabulous freehold family residence in Primrose Hill, now on sale with leading London estate agent Aston Chase. This stunning six-bedroom period house is located on Gloucester Avenue, an iconic streetscape, offering a fine balance between period and contemporary features. It is available to purchase with a price on application (POA).
Situated within the heart of desirable Primrose Hill, the property on Gloucester Avenue offers 3,406 square feet of beautifully designed living space arranged over five floors.
It has a traditional facade with sash windows and a cast-iron balcony embodying traditional Primrose Hill living, combined with a magnificent double-height glass extension to the property’s rear which opens on to a 59 square-foot south-west facing garden.
You enter the property on the raised ground floor, where a well-presented entrance hall leads you into an extensive open-plan drawing room and reception room. These areas are ideal for entertaining guests and family.
Inside the drawing-room are a marble fireplace, with bespoke shuttered-windows, solid wood flooring and original cornicing details preserved. Also located at ground level is a smart study that overlooks the private garden.
The garden floor is the central hub of this beautiful home. It features an extensive open-plan kitchen, dining area and family room, with the dining area located in the double-height glass extension.
The extension fills the living space with natural light and features folding doors opening onto an outside patio area designed for alfresco living. The property also benefits from a designer kitchen complete with an Aga, sleek handle-less cupboards and fully integrated appliances.
The principal suite can be found on the first floor and provides a large bedroom, walk-in dressing room and en suite bathroom. In addition, the first floor has a guest bedroom and WC, with the second floor providing three further guest bedrooms.
The property’s third floor offers a large bedroom with folding doors that lead to a private roof terrace providing views onto the beautiful Gloucester Avenue streetscape.

This home balances period features with modern amenities and is well located for residents to enjoy the best the area has to offer. Given the property’s location, appeal and preserved original features, we anticipate this house to be very sought-after.”
