Old meets new with this 1970s Malcolm Smith-designed Wallend property in London NW5, which is now up for sale.
As it says above, the house originated in the 1970s, but has been ‘remodelled and extended’ as recently as 2009 with some premium finishes, leaving a mix of retro and contemporary that seems to work very well. It’s certainly very easy on the eye.
You can access the house via a gate and courtyard, with the living space laid out over two floors. Unusually, the sleeping accommodation is downstairs, while the living areas are on the upper level to make the most of the natural light.
The entrance area has both a coat cupboard and the original spiral staircase, as well as access to a ‘double-volume’ reception room with full-height windows and a dining area, along with a modern kitchen and what’s described as a ‘blue tower of books’, able to seal off the space or open it up to the reception room.
On the lower floor you’l find a bathroom, a master bedroom and two further bedrooms (one currently used as a study / guest room), with a fold-down double bed and built-in storage system. There is also a large storage area accessible, with gardens surrounding the house.
If that appeals, the asking price is £1,100,000.
