Glass House, NW3

For Sale


Property Description

It is well known that being in nature calms the nervous system, extends life, and boosts creativity, but it can be cold and wet. This is not the case in The Glass House, which merges 21st-century design with floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the mature woodland garden featured in Gardens Illustrated and Design Outdoors by Matt Keightley. It feels like living among the trees but in the warmest, safest, and most private house possible.

Tucked away in the verdant Elm Walk in Hampstead, the Glass House is a tranquil escape that is as peaceful as refined. Spanning an expansive 4,788 square feet, this private four-double-bed home (three with ensuite) is built on just two levels and presents a rare opportunity for modern, lateral living.

The open-plan layout enhances the flow between indoor and outdoor spaces, making it ideal for entertaining. A complete renovation in 2013 using modern materials has earned the building a high energy performance rating. With underfloor heating and AC throughout, you can adjust the home to your preferences year-round.

The property is conveniently located near Hampstead Heath, Hampstead Village amenities, and is close to Hampstead and Golders Green Underground Stations for easy access to the rest of London.
