This quintessential period home is on the market at £6.49 million.

A quintessential period terrace house in London’s posh Primrose Hill is on the market with an asking price of £6.49 million (US$8.5 million).

The period spread—which was listed at the end of October with Aston Chase—perfectly matches its neighbors with its traditional brick facade, sash windows and cast- iron balcony.

But while the exterior may be traditional, the interior of the five-story home is far more contemporary.

The 3,406-square-foot property’s lower ground level, or garden level, is the hub of the home and is fitted with a modern open-plan kitchen, a dining area and a family room, with doors leading out into the garden.

Upstairs is a drawing room with a marble fireplace, bespoke shuttered-windows and original cornicing details along with a study overlooking the garden. There are also six bedrooms, including a master suite with a dressing room, and the house is topped with a private roof terrace.

“Gloucester Avenue is a beautiful family home, providing the quintessential Primrose Hill lifestyle that is so popular with buyers,” Howard Kayman, associate director of house sales at Aston Chase, said in a news release.

“This home balances period features with modern amenities and is well located for residents to enjoy the best the area has to offer. Given the property’s location, appeal and preserved original features, we anticipate this house to be very sought-after,” Mr. Kayman said.

Primrose Hill, in northwest London, is a village-like area known for its rows of terrace houses named for the hilltop park it surrounds that has panoramic views over the city.

Mansion Global could not determine who owns the home.
