Heathfield House in the British capital, more specifically its Highgate, is located on a property of two lush acres…
London addresses don’t have a pronounced desirability factor unless they contain the Highgates name in themselves. Supermodel Kate Moss has her villa here, just like actor Jude Law. Rocker Rod Stewart was born and raised here, and now, one of the most desirable villas on site is winning the market with a price tag of $51.8 million.
The reason for this ambitious price, may well be justified. Heathfiled House is a magnificent masterpiece of ten-bedroom architecture, close to Hampstead Heath Park. The home itself was designed by respected architect, Alan Powers, one of Britain’s foremost experts in twentieth-century contemporary design.
When you pass through its impressive gates and over the winding paved driveway of the car, you will see the main villa with a magnificent glass rotunda, as well as a beautiful semicircular design in the rear. Spread over three floors, the villa as its main jewel has a rooftop glass dome, which houses a study or office, from which it exits onto a teak covered terrace.
With the help of a central glass elevator, you can get down to the ground floor of this villa and its circular section, where you will be greeted by a huge pool overlooking the impeccably landscaped lawn. The trail takes you to your private tennis court and spa.
The ground floor also has a spacious living room, with great views of the surroundings. Then there is the study and guest room, the huge kitchen and the breakfast room. The dining room is equally impressive and features a two-story glass atrium above, which fills it with natural light.
When you reach the second level of the villa, you will find bedrooms of five, including the master bedroom with separate wardrobe and private bathroom. What looks like a separate mini-villa opposite the front door of the main villa is actually a guest house with three floors and four bedrooms.
Below is a five-car garage, which takes you to the second floor with two bedrooms, a sitting room and a nearby panic room. The third floor has an additional three bedrooms, kitchen, living room and dining room.
This is a true, straight oasis in the heart of London. Do you now think it’s worth the price they’re looking for?
