An Estate Agents Guide To West Hampstead

Looking for houses for sale in West Hampstead? Learn more about the West Hampstead area below.

Known as the Village of the West End until the 18th century, West Hampstead has retained its charming village feel, but with a renewed reputation as a trendy and well-to-do community in the London Borough of Camden.

This close-knit neighbourhood gives the impression of a relaxed country village in the midst of a city. Boasting an array of cafes, restaurants, and bars, West End Lane is a popular location with locals. Just be warned, you need to book a table on a Friday evening - we have been caught out ourselves. From boutique shops and leisure complexes to impressive architecture and green spaces, you’ll be hard pushed to find a reason to dislike West Hampstead.

West Hampstead

Striking Victorian redbrick residences and impressive mansion blocks dominate the local streets, contrasted with quaint cottages and art deco properties. It remains a highly sought-after area attracting mature professionals and families, especially with property prices often being more obtainable than in neighbouring Hampstead.

Many of our clients are attracted to West Hampstead as they wish to live north of the river and commute to different parts of London. Access to the Jubilee line is also a huge benefit, as it allows you to reach Bond Street in just 9 minutes, and Canary Wharf in 30 minutes. Rail and bus services are frequent, and you can even cycle to Oxford Street in a mere 30 minutes.

West Hampstead offers you country living in a thriving city!

The guys over at PE were excellent throughout the entire cycle from viewings to signing the contract. They did everything and more to ensure my experience was seamless. Would highly recommend Andrew and the rest of the guys over at Portlands.

Professional and friendly service. My first experience using an estate agent could not have gone any better. Always available by phone or email no matter how minutia the question or need is. Within 25 hours they (Andrew) had found me a couple who have already moved in! Strongly recommend their services. Thank you so much to the Portland Team.

Darren and Andy were excellent at helping us to secure our new home - knowledgeable and sensible, lots of attention to the transaction, and great drive to get us over the line. Thanks both!

David Scott - Buyer

Finally, we sold our flat. It was a roller coaster journey for us-- with the great help of Darren and Andy who were there to guide us along the way (as we are selling our property for the first time) these duos really did a fantastic job of explaining to us and giving us information as we go about with the process. They would call, update us by email, phone and would go extra mile.. I couldnt thank them enough. Thank you Portland Estate Agents. Highly recommended!
