It is a quite stunning design, said to be the finest of all of Paxton Locher’s projects. Some statement, seeing as a previous build by the architectural team was described as ‘one of the great London houses of the late 20th century’. Why so great? Well, it packs a hell of a lot of ‘wow’ into a fairly restricted space.

In the heart of Hampstead Village, the house is set behind electric gates and behind a courtyard with two off-street parking spaces. Once inside, you’ll find a remarkable property covering around 6,500 sq ft and set around a 40ft ‘double-volume’ reception room. This room has two retractable glass roof lights which, when open, transform the space into an open-air courtyard. If that’s not enough, running along this is a custom-made glass swimming pool.

Wander further and you’ll find an open-plan kitchen with dining area, as well as a raised sitting/TV room. At the other end of the central space is a gymnasium. Overlooking the pool is the master bedroom, which has a dressing room and ‘his and her’s bathrooms. You’ll also find four further bedrooms, each with their own sitting rooms and kitchenettes, with access to a small patio area. In addition, there’s a guest suite on the first floor and a self-contained studio / guest annexe with its own entrance.

Just to emphasise who this is aimed at, the lower ground floor contains a ‘party and media room’, with high-level windows looking in to the pool. There is also an integrated garage with two further parking spaces, along with a sliding wall onto the front courtyard.

A stunning glimpse into the future, but a glimpse that’s available to buy right now…at a price. That price? A jaw-dropping £7,950,000.
