 A breathtaking four-bedroomed house beside Waterlow Park and on the outer edge of Highgate Cemetery, designed by the celebrated architects Eldridge Smerin. The South and West elevations are fully glazed, providing spectacular leafy views across the cemetery and wonderful, light-filled spaces. By contrast, the street façade is mysterious and private, a curtain wall of honed black granite, steel panels, and opaque glass.

Featuring an impressive open-plan entertaining room, a kitchen dining room with a retractable glass roof, and a beautiful glass-walled study, the house is perfect for contemporary living and entertaining. All the first and second-floor rooms have balconies, whilst the ground-floor bedrooms open onto a small private terrace. There is a state-of-the-art cinema room in the basement.

The house is well equipped with modern technology, with an integrated audio-visual system, central controls for underfloor heating and lighting, and a recently-upgraded security system. There is a large integral garage which currently holds one car and a small gym. The house has ample storage, including generous cupboards (some concealed) and a basement storeroom.

The home has starred in several TV shows, both programmes about the house and shows using it as a location, and it is featured in several books on modern architecture. The present owners have also hosted regular live music events in it, and describe it as a perfect house to live in. The distinguished modernist architect John Winter (whose original building it replaced) described it as ‘as near to a faultless building as I have seen for a long time’. This is only the second time it has been sold.
