There is actually an open day for this place at the weekend, so if you like what you see here, you might want to check out this 1960s Harley Sherlock-designed modernist property in London N6 in person.
The house dates back to 1962, the work of Harley Sherlock of Andrews, Emerson, Sherlock & Keable and part of the Southwood House Estate, a group of properties developed between 1958 and 1962 on the site of the former Southwood House.
One of the benefits of being built in the 1960s (as opposed to now) is that land was less of a commodity and as such, the development has both attractive and sizeable communal space for the sole use of residents. Try finding a new build with that in the capital in 2016.
Internal space covers around 1,860 sq ft., boosted by a basement being added by the current owners. The style is a mix of the period and the new, with the latter sitting well with the 1960s period fittings and detailing, like the ooen-tread timber staircase.
As for the layout, the ground floor has a kitchen at the front, with Poggenpohl fittings, and Gaggenau and Miele appliances, along with an open study area, a ‘very bright’ reception / dining room, guest WC and a full-height sliding double-glazed door to the garden.
Head up that open-tread staircase and you will find a first floor with master bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and dressing room. There are also two other bedrooms on this floor (one used as a study right now) and a shower room. Apparently the dressing room was originally a bedroom, and could be reinstated as one if you need more of that space. There is also a ‘mezzanine level’ at the top of the stairs.
As we said, there is now a lower ground floor, which is laid out reception room at the rear with a mirror shaft to ‘maximise natural light’. Two bedrooms too, along with a guest shower room.
As for the outside, there is a front garden with an off-street parking space, and a southwest-facing garden at the rear. More space beyond with those communal gardens.
Contact the agent if you want to be part of that open day. As for the price, that’s £1,795,000.
