Not many parts of London are bounded by green belt, yet are still on the Tube map. Mill Hill is one such place, making it a target for movers who like the country feel.
NW7 is London’s largest postcode and is an attractive swathe of suburbia with golf courses, parks, riding schools and independent schools, plus homes to suit most budgets — from purpose-built flats to interwar semis, to gin-and-jag executive houses in leafy avenues.
The Village Green, above, is a development of eight Arts and Crafts-style family homes, tucked away in the former grounds of the Sisters of
Charity of St Vincent de Paul convent and school.
The historic Victorian chapel, which includes a converted school house, forms a splendid backdrop to the homes. They have up to 5,042sq ft of space and are priced from £1,795,000. Call Glentree Estates on 020 8731 9500.
Mill Hill East, at the bottom of the hill, is the cheaper bit but is still improving. The Lofts, in Grenville Place, is a new-build block of 32 two- and three-bedroom flats with big factory-style windows and exposed brick walls. Prices from £570,000. Call 020 8731 9500.
