This leafy Hampstead home has cathedral-like proportions.
Built in the late 1970s by local architect Edward Greenway, the 5,663 sq ft London property has been given a contemporary refresh by his son Alex’s studio, Greenway Architects. They have sensitively modernised the dwelling while retaining its enormous volumes.
The show-stopper is the property’s soaring west wing. Split across several levels, it houses the kitchen, a sunken living room, dining room and a second reception room – all of which are topped by a vaulted timber ceiling.
On the market via Savills for £9.5m, the Hampstead home is all about texture: exposed brick walls jibe with huge glass panes that offer views of the property’s several gardens, while the flooring is a mix of warm woods with cool terracotta tiles.
Five bedrooms – complete with custom cabinetry – fill the rest of the main floor, while yet another reception room can be found on the lower ground floor. Rounding off the lot is a glass-fronted studio, which peeks out onto the garden courtyard.
Extra colour comes via the property’s interesting historic neighbours… It sits behind the remains of the Grade-II listed Hampstead parish jail, which dates back to 1730.
