The development is clean and well taken care of at all times. Quite enough and feels safe and secure. The facilities are fantastic, despite delay in some of them working it’s great overall. The design is lovely as doesn’t feel over crowded

Great development with very friendly concierge

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2021

The design of Hampstead Manor is like no other development we’ve seen. We’ve always been against new builds as they lack character and quality, but Hampstead Manor is different. The development has done a great job of mixing old with the new. On the west side of the development, you have the old university campus, which has masterfully been redesigned to accommodate a set of luxury residential apartments. On the east side, you have a set of new builds that have been designed to complement the rest of the development. This contrast helps give the development a feeling of a stately home whilst incorporating all of the latest home technologies. What makes it more special for me is when I learnt that my mother was a student at the campus back in the 90s.

We can’t say a bad word about the management and concierge. The day and night staff are so helpful. If anything, the concierge is the best bit about the development. They work incredibly hard to keep the development in good order, ensuring we are safe and well looked after. Thank you for everything you do for us!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

If you have to commute daily to work, Hampstead Manor is not the most conveniently positioned. It’s a good 15 – 20 mins walk to the closest station. However, you’re in close reach of West Hampstead shops and only a 20min walk to Hampstead High-street. There is also a shuttle bus that can take you to local stations, but we rarely use it. Perhaps if there were an online booking system, we would, but to be honest, we like the walk and extra exercise it gives us.

For us, this is more of a positive. Being positioned further from the station and main roads gives Hampstead Manor more of a suburban residential feel, where the only people in your area tend to be your neighbours.

If you have a car, you may also be disappointed as the development is part of a local council scheme, which prevents residents from acquiring a local parking permit. However, if you have 25k – 50k to spare (subject to having a two bed), you may be able to secure a parking space in the private underground car park.

Pricewise properties in this development are above average for what you would typically expect to pay for a 1-3 bed apartment. On initial offering, one-bedroom apartments were around the 750 mark, but are now in the region of 1 million. It’s hardly good value for money, but if you don’t need the space, you can at least say you live in Hampstead. Hampstead Manor is great for a short-term rental or investment, but if you’re looking to start a family, you’d be better off putting that money elsewhere.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The standing charges for cooling and heating are an additional compulsory cost, even if you have them switched off. You also have no option but to remain with their supplier (Clever Energy). Furthermore, the cooling and heating have a poor cost to performance ratio. The heating is very slow to come on and the cooling (comfort cooling) barely works.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The building management has always been very quick to respond to any issues with the property.

We love Hampstead manor

Review Date Aug 2021

The facilities are amazing and the management staff are always professional, polite, and so helpful. The customer care team are also good at sorting any issues in the home. The development could do with more communal bin spaces as they are some distance away from a lot of apartments and are often overflowing.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

We are loving living in Hampstead manor. Location is great for Hampstead Heath and there are local shops and restaurants nearby in West Hampstead and Hampstead. It would be nice to be a little closer to tube/train stations but it is still a reasonable distance. Living on this development, we cannot get parking permits for street parking and spaces in the car park are very expensive and not available for rent, which is an issue. It’s also difficult when you have guests visiting. There is little traffic noise but it can be quite a busy road during rush hour. The neighbourhood is lovely.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

As our building is a listed building, there’s no double glazing and the windows are very old and difficult to replace or repair.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The customer care team are very polite and on the whole solve issues in a timely manner. Contractors can be a bit variable and unreliable but on the whole our experience has been positive.

CIty living in a peaceful and attractive development

Review Date Aug 2021

The development is well designed around two beautifully llandscaped quads. The gardens are extremely well kept, but there is also a wild flower and pond area. The variety of buildings both new build and renovated make for a very pleasing aesthetic. The gym and pool are great, although there have been problems on and off with the facilities in the pool and spa area. The conceirge staff are friendly and responsive and any problems we faced with maintenance were addressed. The only problem we experienced was that of drainage in the bottom garage but again the development staff were helpful and quick to follow up.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Hampstead Manor is on a quiet residential street but in easy reach of Hampstead Village and transport links (frequent buses are only a few minutes walk and the tube a ten minute walk away). It is a friendly area that is well serviced. Parking is available on site; restrictions on the road do exist for a couple of hours a day but otherwise it is easy for visitors to park.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Think about your location within the development carefully and how much privacy you will get.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They respond quickly and resolved issues when possible.

Modern amenities in a traditional setting

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2021

Well designed development that gives you the benefits of a modern build within the look and feel of a traditional red brick building / block. Facilities are well appointed and well managed. The concierge team are available, friendly and helpful.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great area which is quiet with a lot of greenery. Transport links available but require a short walk. Not much traffic on the street and a good community vibe. Limited bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but plenty on the high streets which are 10-15 mins walk.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

New builds never having been lived in can have snagging issues which come up – so expect those, but know service has been good in fixing them

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes – good responsiveness and have agreed to fix snagging points that came up post closing

The development offers a beautiful blend of old and new, immaculate landscaping and superlative facilities. We love living here. The concierge are extremely helpful and lovely too. The new addition of a driver (within certain hours) is an amazing service too.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Lovely, safe and beautiful area

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

No parking. If your flat doesn’t come with a parking space then there aren’t any other options. It is impossible to get a permit via Camden council and the Management do not even allow residents to rent off members who do have private parking spaces which seems a bit unreasonable if they are not being used.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

It is quite expensive compared to other developments near by, but then again the facilities probably make it worth more.

Very nice design and facilities. Build quality not great. Numerous small faults have had to be put right. The pool and gym are fantastic and my flat is a good size for the money (given the NW3 location). Having air conditioning is great in the summer.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good location close to both Hampstead and West Hampstead

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The build time. The build was delayed for almost a year.

What is the best feature of your home:

The view over the grounds is lovely with lots of light coming in.

Great place to live

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

Hampstead Manor is a well designed mix of new homes and period conversions. The nature of the site with flats and houses make it a perfect place to live compared to the cookie cutter developments so often seen in London. Facilities are great (gym and pool) and gardens extremely well maintained. Onsite security and concierge service ensure a peaceful community. It is a mixed and friendly community. If you are after a character home without wanting to sacrifice modern amenities you will struggle to find better in the area.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The best of the old and the new. A development of character and high specifications in a quiet and well maintained part of London

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Completion deadline slippage was always communicated later than anticipated.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Sometimes slow but always fixed at the end so no complaint.

Hampstead has just become even more desirable

Review Date May 2018

Not only is Hampstead one of the most desirable places to live in London with its village-like feel and quaint architecture, the new Hampstead Manor development is fast becoming the spot to settle in NW3. Developed by Mount Anvil, with interiors by Johnson Ribolla, this collection of beautiful properties in the centre of Hampstead village have been sympathetically renovated into studio apartments up to 5-bedroom family homes available from around £755,000. There are 98 new builds, 54 conversions and a number of Grade II-listed buildings that make up this development – 125 luxury new homes in all – set over 12 buildings and surrounded by pristine landscaped gardens that are edged with bluebells and poppies in spring. The price per square foot runs at about £1,077, which is marginally over the postcode’s average of £804.

Residents will find that the nearest Underground station is Hampstead on the Northern Line, which is a pleasant 15-minute walk from Hampstead Manor. Nearby West Hampstead station also provides links to the City via the Jubilee line. Alternatively, Finchley Road & Frognal Overground station is within easy reach, as is West Hampstead Thamelink for services all over the capital. International travellers can reach Heathrow Airport in just under an hour, while Gatwick is around 70 minutes away. Drivers can use the A406 and M4 to connect to the main motorway system. The area of Hampstead is much sought after as a place to live and with good reason. The Heath is a popular spot for those who crave an outdoor lifestyle, with its swimming ponds and sporting facilities especially popular during warmer months. There is also an abundance of restaurants, cafes and pubs that are world renowned, making this a great spot for socialising with friends on evenings and weekends. The Everyman Cinema and Golders Hill Park & Zoo will entertain families with little ones. In terms of education, this area of London boasts a number of high-achieving establishments, such as Christ Church Primary, St Margaret’s School and Fine Art College.

Within the development, there are plenty of high-quality facilities to help residents relax and recharge. There’s a 24-hour concierge on hand to help with everything from booking travel to receiving deliveries, along with a private spa and gym complete with a 14-metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and changing rooms. For car owners there’s secure Underground parking with 92 spaces and for cyclists there’s basement cycle storage with secure access. Another handy addition is the use of the Hampstead Manor town car service, which runs from the development to nearby train and Tube stations to a schedule, and off peak it can be booked according to individual needs. The apartments themselves are stylish to the core, designed by the acclaimed Johnson Ribolla and inspired by travels to India. A muted colour palette brings a sense of calmness and serenity, with plenty of natural materials giving it a luxurious finish. Kitchens include matt lacquer cabinets, concealed LED lighting, natural stone effect porcelain splashback and composite stone worktop, and integrated Siemens appliances. In the bathrooms there are natural stone effect porcelain floor tiles and feature wall – to continue the theme from the kitchen – large format wall tiles, a bespoke mirror cabinet with feature lighting and shelving for extra storage, a double-ended steel bath, overhead shower with integrated hand shower and polished chrome brassware. Elsewhere, there is engineered timber flooring throughout the living areas and carpeted bedrooms for a touch of comfort. There are also fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms to keep possessions in order. Externally, the development is unique and immaculately finished, with every small detail carefully considered. Various species of trees have been retained to keep the character of the site intact, while lime-based wash brings out the china-clay Greco brightness in the original stucco.

Other options in NW3 to consider are Novel House and Belsize Road Gardens.
