Living In Harben EstateSubmitted by Angelique Master on Friday, September 22, 2017 - 01:02.
Not a spectacular place, at the heart of South Hampstead.. easy access to transport, restaurants and entertainment. Life here could be described as confined, the walls are thin ensuring you know your neighbours more than you may like to. Surrounding a playground, Summer is filled with the sound of children playing, swings creaking. Central heating issues persist, maintenance is ongoing.
Adapting to this structure hasn't been easy. Given the time scale of when this estate was built, it is easy to take into account the headspace of the architects. The effects of war and the demand for housing. Could be worse, could be better.
