This house realises the potential of a 10m-by-10m plot with no street elevation, within the Hampstead Conservation Area. Garden House is in the centre of Hampstead close to all its facilities and special character that makes it one of the classic urban villages. Fine residential streets are a two-minute walk away from the busy high street that hosts transport hubs, fine shops, restaurants, schools, museums and cinemas. The front entrance off Ellerdale Road leads to the totally private entrance courtyard surrounded by the sound, sight and scent of the gardens of Hampstead and to the totally private Garden House rooms, combining private and secluded living at the heart of the neighbourhood.
The network of paved paths and courts provides a unique and secluded route to the house itself, which is a safe and secure haven. Planning Permission was assured by the siting of the main volume of the house substantially below ground level, with projection at ground level limited to the height of surrounding garden fences. The site, with a detailed planning consent (including a basement) was sold at an auction in November 2014 for £800,000.
