Momentarily stepping back into the mid 60s, a modernist dream beckons as you stroll down Rowley Way.

Neave Brown, the borough architect responsible for a string of unique social housing projects throughout metropolitan Camden, built this estate specifically as a place to live, not just exist. 

This particular mid-level one bedroom flat has one of the best terraces, south facing, not overlooked. They are generous with space and light. That was Brown’s vision.

As you enter, wood hues welcome you. The whole flat is cleverly based on a square design as you walk around, flowing from room to room.

A wide reception room complete with USM Hallar sideboard & desk bureau greet you, with natural light from the floor to ceiling terrace doors flooding the space.

Around the corner, your bedroom naturally meanders off from the lounge. A ‘hidden’ wall can slid across for when you go to sleep.

Storage aplenty to the rear of the bedroom, a clever translucent light well provides a great space to put a plant or vase.

Leading through to your bathroom, there is a bath with overhead shower and separate toilet, all finished in neutral white tiling. 

Lastly, the kitchen is offset either side with all the original fixtures, fittings & countertops. It is a brilliant example of quality products standing the test of time.

The Alexandra & Ainsworth 'Rowley Way' estate has a unique feel to it; a vibrant mix of locals, professionals and families. You get to know your neighbours quickly and people look out for each other in the old fashioned way.

Located close South Hampstead, Swiss Cottage & Finchley Road, you are spoilt for choice for all amenities. Regents Park is your best local park, a brisk 20 minute walk away through St John's Wood.

Local favourite restaurants include Fiddie’s, an Italian with delicious wood-fired pizza, and Arches Wine Bar for British fare and an extensive wine menu. Best local pubs include The Clifton, a former hunting lodge & The Priory Tavern, a great local ale house. A string of supermarkets also line Finchley Road, with Waitrose, M&S & Sainsbury’s all close by.

Transport options are at a premium. South Hampstead overground is minutes away connecting to Euston in one stop & further West towards Wembley. Swiss Cottage tube is five minute walk, linking with the Jubilee Line to the city, and Finchley Road station is 10 minutes away and connects the Metropolitan Line as well. A raft of buses depart from Finchley Road taking you to the heart of the city.
