A prestigious Grade II-listed Georgian mansion situated in Hampstead Village of north London has gone up for sale. Priced at a staggering £22 million, this remarkable property has been put on the market for the first time since 1931, reports Evening Standard.
Despite its age, the house has been carefully preserved over the years to ensure it maintains its grandeur while also providing seamless living experiences.
The discreet family estate comprises a coach house and two semi-detached Grade II Listed Georgian mansions. However, it was originally designed and constructed as a single mansion—a magnificent period house dubbed “Frognal Lodge”—which underwent a division in the 1970s, breaking into two separate houses.
Boasting around 7,896 sq ft of land, the mansion claims to offer an unrivaled sense of space and grandeur. The building is a whopping 15 times bigger than the average property size in the borough.
Arranged over two floors, this property features nine opulent bedrooms, five spacious reception rooms, seven bathrooms, three kitchens, and two utility rooms.
A discreet front door leads to a small courtyard opening to the entrance hall and a spacious reception hall. Following it is a grand drawing room with French doors and a sitting room with a feature fireplace.
The first floor encompasses a principal bedroom and three additional bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a separate staircase.
The main bedrooms include ensuite facilities and walk-in wardrobes.
Notably, the primary reception hall spans an impressive 614 sq ft of area. That is larger than the average size of houses in the borough (538 sq ft). The big reception room makes this property an ideal place for grand gatherings and entertainment.
The property is made more attractive by the well-kept 0.6 acres of beautiful gardens that show its timeless beauty.
The house has several special features, including a wine cellar, a traditional cellar, a workshop, a separate garage, and an orangery that opens up to lawns surrounded by shrubs, rare plants, ornamental trees, and borders of flowering plants.
There is a two-bedroom house on the grounds, known as “The Folly”. It has separate access, dining and living space, a store, a garage, and off-street parking for two cars. This vast coach house can be accessed from Church Row.
Enclosed by a high wall, this trophy property offers seclusion and exclusivity—characteristics highly appealing to buyers in this price range.
Full of character throughout, the mansion is considered one of the most sought-after listings in London’s current real estate landscape.
Hampstead and its neighbouring area, Belsize Park, have long been renowned as celebrity enclaves, with personalities such as Ricky Gervais, Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Smith, and Harry Styles owning properties here.
With deep-pocketed buyers flocking to Hampstead, this Georgian house is expected to be snapped up soon, pushing up the demand for high-end property management services such as The London Management Company (TLMC). Expert property management services ensure a client’s property is always well-managed and squeaky clean. Such services might be necessary for discerning buyers to enjoy the timeless elegance and sophistication of these distinct residences.
