Belsize Lane comprises 10 two and three-bedroom apartments, each featuring interiors by the multi-award winning CID Interieur and bespoke kitchen design by Poggenpohl.

Godfrey London are behind the project, which is the first new luxury apartment development to be built in Belsize Village since the 1950s.

The site was originally Victorian coach stables for affluent local families before it was re-developed into the Belsize Garages to provide repair and shelter for the Art Deco styled cars of the 1930s. Godfrey London have spent the past 18 months restoring the development to its former glamour and glory; recently unveiling 10 new homes that start from £1.2 million for a two-bedroom and £3.2 million for a three-bedroom apartment.

Reflecting on the completion of the development, Paul Godfrey – Managing Director of Godfrey London – said: “Belsize Lane sets a new benchmark in the local marketplace for luxury and high quality bespoke finishes and specification.

“Elegant and sophisticated, it is an outstanding place to live and the finest apartment address in Belsize Park.”

Located just a stone’s throw from the cafes, restaurants and shops of Belsize Village at 21 Belsize Lane, the new apartment building has a four-storey stepped-back façade with floor-to-ceiling windows, complete with covered balconies designed by leading architects Wimshurst Pelleriti.

Each new property features an open-plan Poggenpohl kitchen with a unique layout, while selected apartments come with master bedrooms that boast built-in bathtubs and a separate walk-in shower. Additional features include underfloor heating, comfort cooling to the living space and bedrooms, and Legrand and Sonos entertainment systems. Each bedroom is furnished with silk-touch carpets and feature lighting.

Neir Gigi, Director at sales agent Goldschmidt & Howland, said: “Belsize Park has a very strong micro-market, with many local residents choosing to stay in the area for many years.

“Because of this strong local marketplace, we anticipate that most of the buyers at Belsize Lane will be young professionals and downsizers from the local Belsize Park, St John’s Wood and Hampstead area.”

With the official launch of the development came the unveiling of a fully-dressed show apartment which is now available to tour.

The properties are being marketed by Goldschmidt & Howland.
