An urban idyll
Tucked away in the middle of Hampstead, The Mount II has all the charm of a country cottage. You’ll first come to the open-plan living area – decorated in crisp colours, with bleached wood floors. At the near end is the kitchen, which has classic cabinets, marble countertops and, for a centrepiece, a scrubbed-wood table set with turquoise chairs. Beyond that you’ll find a snug, painting-dotted sitting area, where a sofa and two antique armchairs sit around a flatscreen television.
Next, stairs lead down to the blue-and-white second bedroom. And then it’s up to the restful nursery, the soft-blue third bedroom and the family bathroom with a bath and an integrated shower. Above that, there’s the tranquil master bedroom, which has a king-size bed and a turquoise-tiled ensuite bathroom with a shower and a roll-top bath.
