This was actually on the market previously, but after a mini makeover and a price drop, this 1970s Ted Levy-designed modernist property in Highgate, London N6 is back up for sale.
Not a huge makeover by any stretch of the imagination. Comparing the two sets of pictures, someone has stripped out all the excess furnishings and fittings, then given the main living areas a lick of paint.
Gone is the salmon pink, the walls of pictures and most of the furniture. What you are left with is something of a blank canvas.
That’s no bad thing, as it allows us to enjoy what this place offers, which is a distinctive piece of 1970s modernism with exposed brick walls, double hight ceilings and a very cool mezzanine level.
Yes, more work is needed to bring this back to its best. But without the excess, this house looks so much more appealing.
The townhouse has a decent amount of living space too. That includes an entrance hall, the large, dual-aspect reception area, the kitchen, three bedrooms, an ensuite shower room, family bathroom and guest WC plus that mezzanine section.
What isn’t visible is the front and rear garden (you get more of a hint of that on the old listing), as well as a garage and communal gardens. Note that this is on a private gated development too.
Potentially a very hip house for someone, although not cheap, even with a price cut. The new asking price for this place is £1,450,000.
