Not only is this apartment in the William Bryce Binnie-designed art deco West Hill Court, London N6 an interesting property, it is also a good measure of just how much London house prices have risen over the last few years.
That’s because we have featured a couple of these places before. First off was this one in 2013, which was followed by a very stylish place in 2015. The one currently offered for sale needs work and is priced in excess of both of those.
West Hill Court is an art deco / modern movement building (take your pick) from 1933, designed by William Bryce Binnie, who you might know was behind the art deco East Stand at Arsenal Stadium.
Although the listing here doesn’t mention it all, previously this place was down as offering access to a porter, the manicured gardens, a private tennis court, a squash court and a kitchen garden. Presumably most of that still stands.
But that’s just a bonus. The selling point here is the apartment.
To be fair, it needs work. But that’s a plus on two fronts. Firstly, this place looks to have original features still in place, including the parquet flooring, presumably the built-in storage and of course, the Crittall windows. Secondly, it’s a blank canvas for someone to create their dream space.
That space is currently made up of two double bedrooms, a south-west facing reception room, a fully fitted kitchen and the bathroom. Some of these apartments have a balcony – not this one as far as we can see. But you do get off street parking as a residents and possibly the option of renting a garage. Check with the agent about that.
The other selling point is location, with this place well located for Highgate Village and Swains Lane, as well as Hampstead Heath and Highgate Ponds.
If all of that appeals, this apartment is on the market for £900,000.
