This modern private house has been built around James Gowan’s 1968 circular swimming pool. The 2 and 4-storey L-shaped plan wraps around the pool while still leaving the new and existing elements visually isolated at ground level.
Entry to this private house is at ground level, leading into a hall off which is a drawing room, study and guest suite.
At lower ground level is the kitchen, dining room, pool, gym and garage.
A lift serves all floors, with the master bedroom suite and another bedroom on the 1st floor, and a conservatory and roof terrace, overlooking Hampstead Heath, on the top floor.
The garden has been extensively landscaped with a sunken terrace and water feature leading off the kitchen.
Internally, the finishes are high quality but simple – painted walls, oak and limestone floors, cherry doors and stainless steel handrails.
