About Benham & Reeves - West Hampstead
In the Borough of Camden and sandwiched between Kilburn and the Finchley Road, the Victorian suburb of West Hampstead is a vibrant and attractive place to live with fabulous transport links and many independent shops, bars and restaurants all contributing to a café culture and village feel. The introduction of the railways to West Hampstead in the 1880’s saw a sharp rise in the population growth and the subsequent construction of many red brick Victorian terraces and grand mansion blocks which make up the highly sought after housing stock of today. These transport links include the Jubilee Line, (making it possible to get to the West End in 15 minutes) The Thameslink line (Bedford to Brighton and 10 minutes to the Eurostar at St Pancras International), and the Overground (across town from Richmond to Stratford). There are also many buses into the West End and the Metropolitan line for the City is nearby at Finchley Road. These transport links and excellent local schools (Emmanuel, Beckford Malorees, Holy Trinity, Hampstead Parochial, Hampstead School, Haverstock School, St Margarets and University College) has made the area popular with young professionals and familes, creating a real sense of community. Local residents are generally interested and concerned with the future of the area and there is a Development forum and business association giving everyone a voice in local issues. West Hampstead’s ‘claims to fame’ include the Beatles famously being turned down for a recording contract by Decca Studios on Broadhurst Gardens in 1962 and U2 playing their first gig here outside of Ireland in 1979. Benham & Reeves are ideally placed geographically and professionally for buying or selling in West Hampstead. Located in the very centre, only 2 doors from the tube station, we have been selling property and advising local residents in the area since 1958. Our service focussed and honest approach has helped us to become one of the area’s leading local estate agents.
