Modern homes brimming with historical charm in LondonEducation | 17 Sep 2020
With Britain widening the door for BNO passport holders, along with the falling pound sterling and the current stamp duty holiday, Nicky So, Executive Director & Partner of FM Investment Hong Kong (FMI), believes there is not a better time to enter the UK market.
So reveals that compared to the last 12 months, the number of purchases of London property within the group has increased by 40% since the launch of the BNO passport scheme. For Hong Kong investors looking for promising quality homes in London, he suggests Hampstead for its rich potentials. Hampstead is, he says, one of the most desirable addresses in the country.
Located on Kidderpore Avenue, just minutes from Hampstead village, Hampstead Manor is a beautifully crafted collection of new homes in the prestigious NW3 postcode.
The 156 distinguished new homes range from crisp contemporary apartments to immaculately converted Grade II listed heritage properties. Hampstead Manor offers a calm oasis from the bustle of the city, and with excellent connections to the rest of London.
The Chapel, Teil Row and Maynard are three prime examples of the heritage-filled homes.
Regenerated from a church built in 1928, The Chapel is a Grade II-listed building that has been immaculately restored and converted into a single, detached four-bedroom home. It sits away from Kidderpore Avenue, a private and peaceful setting for a dramatic, one-of-a-kind home.
Situated in the former pleasure gardens of Kidderpore Hall, Teil Row comprises seven elegant four-bedroom townhouses that infuse traditional materials with contemporary design and technology. The façade, in particular, has been intuitively designed to complement the neighboring heritage properties.
A beautifully restored 19th century building at the heart of Hampstead Manor, Maynard is a timeless collection of one, two and three-bedroom homes and was once the campus of the King’s College. Crafted to blend in with the surrounding heritage, the dual-aspect apartments boast spectacular views across The Orchard and Teil Green gardens.
Residents can take advantage of a wide range of facilities and amenities that rival a five-star hotel, including a luxurious gym and spa; gardens - Teil Green, The Orchard and The Sumray Gardens - that are maintained and seasonally replanted by expert gardeners; a thoughtful 24-hour concierge service; secure underground car parking; and the residents’ town car that runs from Hampstead Manor to nearby train and tube stations.
Resident can also visit Hampstead Heath, a public green space covering 320 hectares, which lies just to the north of Hampstead Manor.
Hampstead has long been a sought-after place to live and boasts a number of famous past and present residents, such as Dickens, Keats, Orwell, Agatha Christie, actress Elizabeth Taylor, psychologist Sigmund Freud, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber and Benedict Cumberbatch, to name a few.
Situated in a good school zone, Hampstead Manor is within a 3-mile radius of 40 schools, from primary through to secondary schools and beyond, including St. Margaret’s School, University College of London and London Business School.
Located moments from the centre of Hampstead Village, Hampstead Manor is a rare gem of a property. Caren Chiu, Director at DWG Hong Kong, notes: “From a densely-packed and high-tension metropolis, Hongkongers will find the opulent and comfy homes of Hampstead Manor a very pleasant change as well as an indulgent treat. Aside from being a good investment, it also represents a beautiful chapter in British history.”
“Hampstead, together with South Kensington and Knightsbridge, are three of the most coveted zones in London, with Hampstead priding itself on its lower price and higher rental yield – at 3.7% compared with 2% for the other two.” highlights Mr. Amous Lee, CEO & Partner of FMI.
