But occasionally a property comes along that deserves an extra special mention: number five Grange Road is one exquisite, eight bedroomed, seven bathroomed new build in the sought after Kenwood, N6 – a stone’s throw (to quote that popular agents’ phrase) from Highgate Underground station. Set behind electric gates on this private and perfectly tranquil road, it’s not short on wow factor either, and, with the green open spaces of Kenwood and Hampstead Heath close by, its location is to die for.
Inside, a grand entrance hall leads through to a beautifully light and spacious drawing room with a separate dining room and open plan kitchen/family room beyond, and the space between the living and entertaining rooms is seamless: the house has been cleverly designed (with the help of natural light) to create a sense of journey throughout.
Its beauty is irrefutable – room after room will have you struggling to keep your jaw closed – but best of all is No. 5’s luxury and bespoke features – the real stuff of dreams. The innovative, chic and contemporary kitchen is fitted with Gaggenau and Sub-Zero appliances; an elegantly crafted staircase leads down to the spectacular leisure complex with its swimming pool, plunge pool, relaxation zone with bar, glass walled gymnasium and a steam room with star effect lighting. And if that’s not enough luxury for you, a sumptuous cinema room with 3D projector and bespoke bar should do very nicely.
Priced at £12.95 million, it ain’t cheap but we think it’s worth every penny. If only we could come up with those pesky winning Euromillions numbers…
