Area Guide

The area of Ingram Avenue lies in the southeast part of the Suburb and is an exclusive North London residential turning located off Winnington Road -within walking distance of Kenwood House & Hampstead Heath.

Ingram Avenue also features a cul-de-sac extension in the middle of the road, which is called Spaniards Close, and this rises steeply towards the south. Winnington Road links to the eastern end of Ingram Avenue and leads to Hampstead Lane. The cul-de-sac of Kenwood Close lies below and parallel to Hampstead Lane. The houses are also set amongst leafy undeveloped spaces which include: Turners Wood, the Heath Extension, Kenwood and Hampstead Golf Course. Turners Wood is a nature reserve, which is currently maintained by the residents of the surrounding houses which have access.

The roads of Ingram Avenue, and its associated closes, are lined with trees and hedges and the large houses on these roads stand behind carriage drives. Turners Wood, a private natural woodland and bird sanctuary, lies at the heart of the area and the green spaces of: Hampstead Golf Club, Kenwood, and the Heath Extension, form the boundaries. The overall look and feel of the area is that it is leafy, contained, residential, and has large houses that sit comfortably in generous plots. The abundance of space each home offers is also enhanced by the incredibly large front gardens and the wide carriage way of Ingram Avenue itself.

The property is also in the perfect location for those who want to enjoy local life, as the shopping and fine dining areas of Hampstead Village and Highgate High Street are extremely close by. Residents are also able to take a peaceful walk on the Heath or soak up some history at Kenwood House. Additionally, the centre of London is only a short drive away and this ensures that the excitement and buzz of the city is within easy reach.

Architecture

Ingram Avenue is built up of a series of generous Georgian Revival and late Arts and Crafts houses. All of the houses are very large and have extensive gardens to the rear and carriage drives to the front of the property. The front of many of the buildings are symmetrical elevations with Georgian Revival styling and a lot of the houses also have high-quality details and decorative features such as: doorcases, and porches. The majority are built in red/brown brick, sometimes with contrasting brick quoins and dressings or a moderate use of stone.
