Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The site extends to approximately c.0.89 acres (0.36 hectares) and occupies a quiet position at the end of a private cul-de-sac. It currently comprises a large detached house extending to 11,840 sq ft (1,100 sq m) with 17 bedrooms and 24 habitable rooms plus ancillary facilities. There is a large garden to the rear containing 5 outbuildings.

The existing buildings are in extremely poor condition and are currently uninhabitable. The property has been vacant since January 2010.

The site was granted full planning permission in September 2014 (Ref HGY/2014/1901) for 'Demolition of Nice Place including garden pavilion and other out buildings and erection of replacement dwelling with a basement and two new garden pavilions with associated hard and soft landscaping works.'

The permitted scheme will replace the poor quality existing buildings with an exceptional new 6 bedroom house with extensive living space and an artist studio pavilion in the garden to the rear. The footprint of the existing building will be extended to 18,111 sq ft (1,683 sq m) with additional accommodation created within the roof space. A new single storey basement extension will provide staff accommodation, car parking and leisure facilities including a cinema, gym and swimming pool. There will be car parking for 3 vehicles at the front of the house on the proposed driveway as well as underground parking for 4 vehicles in the proposed basement accessed via a car lift.

Planning permission was granted in August 2020 (Ref HGY/2020/1104) for an enhanced scheme. The key alterations include increased width, depth and height of the proposed building as well as the creation of a second basement providing a total area of 31,437 sq ft (2,921 sq m).

Nice Place is located in Highgate within the London Borough of Haringey. It sits at the northern end of Compton Avenue, a prestigious private cul-de-sac with barrier controlled access from Hampstead Lane.

The green open space of Hampstead Heath is a 3 minute walk to the south of the property and the shops, bars and restaurants of Highgate are a 15 minute walk to east.

The site is bordered by Highgate Golf Course to the north, which is a member's only club. The surrounding area is predominantly residential in nature comprising mainly of large detached houses with generous gardens in a mixture of architectural styles.

The site sits within Highgate Conservation Area (the Bishops Sub Area). It is not located near
to any statutorily listed buildings.

The site benefits from close proximity to numerous bus stops along Hampstead Lane with a
range of services providing links across London. Highgate Underground Station (Northern Line) lies c.1.2 miles to the east and Golders Green Underground Station (Northern Line) sits c.1.7 miles to the west. Hampstead Heath Rail and Overground Station is situated c.1.5 miles to the south. The A1 is a 6 minute drive to the north providing access to the M1 and beyond.
