Current projects at National Trust London - including an exhibition at Fenton House, Hampstead's "country house in the city" - raise the type of question that Dexters frequently encounters in the course of our daily business at eclectic properties for sale across London. So what, exactly, constitutes a heritage building?

In Hampstead and neighbouring St John's Wood alone, a number of modernist exteriors hide a distinctive interior that definitely merits further exploration. Often, quite literally next door, you'll find property with enough period features for an entire costume drama. We continually see these two extremes side by side; they are a vital element of London's unique layers of history which attract London buyers and overseas investors alike. 

Further east meanwhile, the warehouse conversions around Aldgate come with their own brand of history, their exposed brick walls and roof gardens an appealing remnant of their industrial heritage.

For Dexters, a heritage building is all of these. So if you'd like to be a part of London's history, get in touch
