3 Bedroom House For Sale
Sold In 2020. Set in one of Hampstead Village's most sought after streets, a moments' walk from the shops and restaurants of The High Street and with easy access to Hampstead Heath. A unique and highly individual 3/4 bedroomed Grade II listed period home of historical interest built circa 1880 originally forming part of "The Wells & Campden Baths and Wash-houses" which was sympathetically converted into two houses in the early 1980's. Since many of the workers' homes in Victorian Hampstead had no running water, bath and wash-houses were created as public buildings to provide both drinking water and facilities for bathing. This Village example was designed for the Wells and Campden Charity and it is likely that this site was chosen due to its location by the original Chalybeate spring. The idea of a public bath and wash-house stems from the cholera epidemic in 1832, when Kitty Wilkinson offered the use of her house and yard to neighbours to wash their clothes, charging them a penny a week. Overlooking Flask Walk Green, this property is spacious and light, laid out over three floors and offering 1806 sq. ft of living space. The accommodation comprises a 24ft reception room with 10ft high ceilings, a dining room/study, three bedrooms, bathroom, en-suite shower room, utility room, patio and terraces which are ripe for remodelling and an interior refurbishment.
