Nestled in a historic neo-Gothic private hamlet in Highgate, North London, Holly Village, an impressive estate of Grade II listed homes offers a unique getaway into a bygone era. Built in 1865 by heiress and philanthropist Baroness Burdett-Coutts, one of the wealthiest women of her time, with the help of architect Henry Darbishire and the support of her good friend Charles Dickens, this private enclave of 19th century homes arranged around carefully manicured gardens presents the essence of period craftsmanship and striking neo-Gothic architecture.
An imposing arched gateway leads to this handsome semi-detached house situated in Holly Village, which has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and provides ideal family-size accommodation located moments away from the popular amenities of bustling Highgate.
This tastefully presented three bedroom property has been meticulously decorated and refurbished while being sympathetic to its heritage and retaining its intrinsic period features.
The reception features an original fireplace and large windows affording views over the tranquil gardens which lend a bright and spacious feel to the living space. There is a newly decorated separate kitchen with built-in appliances and granite worktops, linking to a dining area with traditional tiled floors and decorative fireplace. Stairs lead to three bedrooms (two double bedrooms) offering storage space and views of the development grounds, served by a well-appointed family bathroom with wood flooring, a separate shower cubicle and a uniquely patterned tiled bath. Other benefits include access to a garage and communal landscaped garden. The property is offered on an unfurnished basis and has been neutrally decorated throughout.
Holly Village is conveniently situated within walking distance to Highgate Village, where there are an abundance of cafes, boutiques, art galleries and gastro pubs to explore. The vast expanse of Hampstead Heath, one of London’s best loved green spaces with 791 acres of meadows and ancient parkland is a short walk away. The property is ideally positioned for quick access to central London with nearby transport links including Archway and Highgate Tube stations which are serviced by the Northern Line.
This charming family home is currently listed with our Highgate branch at £795 per week. To enquire about this property, please contact our Highgate branch or click here to arrange a viewing. Here’s our Highgate guide to learn more about the local area.
