This spectacular five-bedroom new-build house offers more than 4,500 sq ft of light-flooded modernist living space on a site of approximately a quarter of an acre.
The discreet front elevation offers little idea of the dynamic accommodation within. Upon entering the property, the visitor passes through a courtyard before being greeted by a wall of glass that opens onto a rectilinear lap pool. To one side, the accommodation spreads beyond the kitchen to a dining area and sitting room with another glass wall providing views over roofs and treetops. The sense of space is extraordinary, with narrow columns providing structural support and a poured concrete floor running throughout. To the other side of the entrance is a more intimate reception room, with access to the lawned garden. The ground floor also contains a utility room, a guest cloakroom and two garages.
Two floors of sleeping accommodation have been set into the hillside on the two storeys below. There are five bedrooms, four of which have en-suite bathrooms, as well as a huge family bathroom. Outside space is accessible from each floor, including a large decked terrace at the foot of the house.
The property is hidden away off Hornsey Lane. Highgate Village has a wide variety of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, and there are further facilities available in Crouch End. 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 provides direct access to King’s Cross, the West End and the City, and there are convenient road link to the A1, leading to the M1, A406 and M25. There are excellent local schools in the area, including Highgate School, St Michael’s Primary School and Channing.
