This part of south west Hampstead is named after the 16th century manor house that was on the same site. The area developed a great deal after World War One, with a number of blocks of flats and houses being built. This continued after World War Two where more housing was built to accommodate the increase in population in the area.
Belsize Park is very popular with younger couples and families, as many of the four storey Victorian houses have been converted into flats. It also has a number of classic Victorian red brick mansion blocks and some smaller mews cottages. The area around Primrose Hill has always been a fashionable and desirable area, and comprises rows of substantial Victorian terraces.
Belsize Park is known for its four- and five-storey white stucco Victorian houses. There are flats in mansion blocks and tall red brick Victorian terraces and some attractive mews cottages tucked away off Belsize Lane.
