"An elegant two-bedroom apartment with a calm, open-plan living space, beautifully apportioned, with natural light flooding the interior from the dual-aspect bay windows."
Glenshaw Mansions is an elegant two-bedroom apartment positioned on the first floor of an impressive 19th Century mansion block, located on the corner of a peaceful, tree-lined avenue in West Hampstead. Steel beams, high ceilings and exposed brickwork give a Manhattan loft impression, peppered with exquisite design details.
The apartment, extending across 1033 square feet, underwent an extensive refurbishment by London based design studio RISE. Three internal structural walls were removed to create a calm and versatile open-plan living space, beautifully apportioned, with natural light from the dual aspect bay windows.
Entrance is via a long, narrow entrance hall, with excellent height and restored oak floors underfoot. An impressive floor-to-ceiling door, clad in aged bronze, provides a soundproof partition to the living room, where a myriad of cleverly conceived design details feature throughout. An opaque glazed sliding door screens the entertainment wall and bespoke joinery offers abundant, discreet storage areas. The thoughtful layout of the kitchen and dining areas offer fantastic entertaining space, with an elegant white porcelain countertop and restored encaustic tiles. Both well-proportioned bedrooms lead off from the entrance hall, the master bedroom with an en suite. A chic Tadelakt clad bathroom sits across the hallway, with a micro-screed floor and brass Vola fittings.
Priory Road is superbly positioned for West Hampstead’s shops, bars and restaurants and the green spaces of Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath. There are also a number of highly regarded schools and pre-schools in the area, including Broadhurst Nursery, University College School, Swiss Cottage Academy, a Montessori school and an American school.
Excellent transport links offer connections to the Jubilee, Thameslink and Overground lines via West Hampstead, just a five-minute walk away.
