The new 1200 sqm luxury six bedroom houses by KSR Architects, along with its in-house interiors company, Folio Design, lies within the prestigious Hampstead Garden Suburb conservation.
The exceptional timeless architecture and interior design enhances scale, quality and value whilst remaining sensitive to the ethos of the Arts and Crafts movement and the Hampstead Garden Suburb environment.
Floor finishes were chosen with great care, utilising a Portuguese limestone for the entrance halls and staircase, contrasting the light hues of the main floor and stairs with darker richer tones for the borders and inlaid motif, a design specially created for the house. A metal painted balustrade with bronze handrail and newel post were also designed specifically for the house, and references the motif in the entrance hall floor. Further bronze detailing containing elements of the motif can be found in the glazed doors leading from the hall to the main reception areas. The reception areas have timber flooring by Schotten and Hansen, which was specially selected by Folio at their factory in Germany for both quality of grain and overall finish. This flooring was also used in the master bedroom suite.
Wall finishes to the principal areas consist of specially commissioned polished plaster, contemporary painted panelling, smoked oak end grain panels, textile wall coverings and paint finishes. Bathrooms are clad in a variety of marbles and porcelain, with bespoke cabinetry to each.
All leisure and staff facilities are located within a substantial double basement. The wet leisure accommodation includes a 14m mosaic tiled swimming pool, with a finely proportioned mobile of elegant, aluminium curved elements suspended over the pool, reflecting the water’s movement. There is also a steam room and banya, with a changing area incorporating a massage room and hair dressing salon.
A large gym, cinema and games room complete the luxurious entertainment areas, a fabulous feature of which is the full width glass wall of the mezzanine games room, which looks down into the gym below and through to the pool area beyond, all making this family home so impressive.
