Hot Property: Litchfield, Hampstead Garden Suburb

For Sale: Asmuns Hill, NW11.

This extended semi-detached cottage is a rare find. Grade II listed, the house was designed by renowned architects Parker & Unwin and built in 1909. Sitting pretty in a tranquil spot near Temple Fortune, it’s awarded with out-of-town verdant loveliness yet has accessible transport links on its doorstep. There’s country cottage charm in abundance here with original period features and pretty, gridded windows. And unusually, the extension is entirely in fitting with the original architecture, providing a seamless look and a pleasing aspect.
