This stylish two-bedroom flat on a leafy street in Kentish Town has the added kicker of a large, communal garden. Together they make an exceptionally pleasing package.

Hilldrop Road, Kentish Town, 2 Bed. Flat




While we endeavour to provide accurate photographs, floor plans, and descriptions, these should be intended as a guide. Total floor plan measurements are sometimes rounded for ease, and distances are approximated. Purchasers should always satisfy themselves through personal inspection.


Hilldrop Road is a wide street lined with mature trees and handsome Victorian villas, giving the setting and building presence. And the flat inside is equally impressive. A roomy hallway gives an instant feeling of space as you enter, making a welcoming first impression. Double sash windows invite light into the classically chic living space. This spacious room is cleverly partitioned by a breakfast bar, providing a sociable focus and a neat divide between the relaxing and cooking areas.

Tucked at the back and away from the street, both bedrooms are quiet and enjoy garden views. Big enough to enjoy separate seating areas, the communal garden is perfect for unwinding late into summer evenings under the canopy of trees. But there are more gems to be discovered in this flat. Not only is there the bonus of a separate office area, but the second bedroom includes everyone's secret fantasy (just us?) – a walk-in wardrobe. As if this flat didn't have enough visual appeal, it's got all the makings of a wonderful home.

Within the Hillmarton conservation area, Hilldrop Road is a peaceful spot, yet it remains close to the action. With places on your doorstep to pick up supplies and coffee, you're sorted for the essentials, but you can also enjoy everything on offer in Kentish Town, from great pubs to late-night gigs, cosy cinemas, to community events. And when you want to blow away the cobwebs, the wilds of Hampstead Heath are within easy reach.


There is so much I’ve loved about living in this flat. It has the advantage of its own front door. And because the bedrooms don’t look out onto any other buildings, it is completely private and so peaceful. The neighbours have been wonderful – there is a real community feel, and everyone looks out for each other.

We are just a stone’s throw from Brecknock Road, which has a lovely independent coffee shop and bakery Bread and Bike, an organic grocery store, The Bumble Bee, and a fantastic Italian deli, Salvino's. I will miss the garden, which faces south, so it has the sun all day, but you can also enjoy the sunset from the living room in the evening.

There’s a sunny beer garden in the back of this corner pub near Tufnell Park tube, and the food has a distinctly Mediterranean flair, thanks in part to the wood-fired pizza oven.
