Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This incredibly bright four-bedroom house, with private garden and roof terrace, occupies an excellent position at the Highgate end of Hornsey Lane, moments from Waterlow Park and Highgate Village. Originally serving as a coach house to the neighbouring period terrace, the internal space has been the subject of a contemporary overhaul, extending accommodation to almost 2,200 sq ft over four levels, while inviting light and wonderful southerly views through masses of rear glazing.

The house is set back from the road behind a cobbled forecourt. The remnants of coach doors punctuate the original brick façade having been repurposed with contemporary fenestration and a front door to the ground-floor hall.

To the left of the entrance hall is a study, with en-suite shower, which could be used as a fifth bedroom. Ahead lies a large living and dining room, with painted-wood flooring and galleried views through the double-height glazing beyond. This space protrudes over the sloping site, descending to the kitchen where colourful tiled flooring is set against high-gloss cabinets and appliances by Gaggenau. From here, huge sliding glazed doors open to provide a seamless progression out to the private courtyard garden.

An open-tread steel staircase, with glass balustrade, rises to the upper levels. On the first floor are two bedrooms, both with en-suite showers. The smaller of these is currently used as a dressing room to the principal bedroom, and as such, the rooms are linked via shower rooms. The master bedroom is situated at the rear with floor-to-ceiling glazed doors which open to a substantial south-facing roof terrace.

The second floor contains two bedrooms that mirror those of the level below. The larger of the two has sliding glazing framing views to St Joseph’s Church and opening to a Juliette balcony. The fourth bedroom has plenty of storage in the eaves and both have en-suite shower rooms.

The area is wonderfully positioned for green spaces. Hampstead Heath is less than five minutes’ drive from the house. The Heath is a verdant idyll, home to Kenwood House as well as extensive sports facilities, walking trails, cafes and far-reaching views of the city skyline.

The famed Parkland Walk, runs behind Hornsey Lane, offering beautiful woodland walks and a nature reserve. The route traces a former railway line, linking Finsbury Park and Alexandra Palace, through to Stroud Green, Crouch End, Highgate and Muswell Hill. The shops cafes and restaurants of Highgate and Crouch End are all easily accessible.

There are excellent local schools in the area, including Highgate School, Channing School and St Michael’s Primary.

The Northern Line, at Highgate or Archway, 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.
