Architect: Dinerman, Davison & Hillman
This wonderful two-bedroom apartment with garage is located on the third floor of one of Highgate’s finest Modernist buildings. Copper Beech was built in 1961 to a design by Dinerman, Davison & Hillman, a renowned firm of north London architects. It has an exceptional location at the end of a discreet cul-de-sac, within a short walk of the Village and Hampstead Heath.
The flat is entered via a communal hallway and up the stairs to the third floor (there is no lift). It measures more than 800 sq ft internally, to include two proper double bedrooms with built-in storage, a bathroom, and a large open-plan reception room and kitchen. It has its own balcony, access to communal gardens, a separate storage room and a garage. The flat is situated at the front of the building, with a lovely easterly aspect over trees.
The interior was refurbished by the current owners a number of years ago, using high-quality modern fixtures and fittings. It still has its original single-glazed windows. Copper Beech is not listed, but the building has many of the finest characteristics of the early 1960s.
North Grove is set off Hampstead Lane, within a short walk of the shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs of Highgate Village. The vast open spaces of Hampstead Heath and Waterlow Park, and the ancient Highgate Wood and Queen’s Wood, are all close at hand. The Northern Line at Highgate provides direct access to King’s Cross, the West End and the City, and there are convenient road links to the A1, leading to the M1, A406 and M25. The area is renowned for its excellent schools, including Highgate School, St Michael’s Primary School and Channing.
