The majority of apartments, developed by Godfrey London, providing luxurious, contemporary living, have been bought by families from neighbouring suburbs or Hampstead itself, as well as proving popular with young couples and downsizers.

Paul Godfrey, Managing Director of Godfrey London says: “The success of Otto Schiff House and Mansions highlights the appeal of the location and the fact that the spacious apartments are large enough for families. Some 71 per cent of our buyers have been families with children, the remainder young couples or downsizers. Over 40 per cent of our customers already live on Netherhall Gardens, and the remaining 60 per cent are from other London villages such as St Johns Wood or Wimbledon.”

In Otto Schiff House, the Victorian era interiors have been sensitively converted and carefully modernized with features including the elegant brick and tile hung façade, large bays, feature stained-glass windows and generous ceiling heights. Otto Schiff Mansions, the newly built pavilion building is modern in style yet compliments its historic neighbour.

A Le Grand Arteor Home automation system controls lighting, heating and audio with in-built ceiling speakers to all living rooms, master bedrooms and master ensuite bathrooms. Other finishing touches include underfloor heating, comfort cooling and a concierge.

On sale with joint sole agents Goldschmidt & Howland and Savills, Neir Gigi, Director at north London sales agent Goldschmidt & Howland says the success of the scheme comes down to the fact that “the luxury residential market in Inner London has become extremely specialised. It is now driven by high-quality newly built or newly refurbished homes and buyers are now extremely discerning, they want to buy homes of exceptional quality in an address that is highly sought after.”
