Quite an interesting recent past too. The house can be found near the remains of the historic and grade II-listed Hampstead parish jail and might well have been demolished a couple of years back.

However, the new house seems to have been abandoned in favour of a renovation of the existing property by Greenway Architects, which is what you see today. Judging by the images, it was the right move. This really is modernist heaven.

We didn’t see the original 1980s version of this place, so hard to compare and contrast. But we love what we see here. The wood and exposed brick finish is always going to appeal, as well as the walls of glazing.

But the real star of the show here is that stunning, cathedral-like space in the centre of the home. That’s the ‘wow’ factor.

The house is surrounded by two / three garden areas and terraces as well as a detached staff / art studio. If that’s not enough, you also get a light filled conservatory and a four car garage ‘hidden away from the road’.
