The communal spa has its own central lobby opening onto two wellness lounges, with heated loungers where visitors can enjoy fresh juices and herbal teas, whilst overlooking the spectacular hydrotherapy pool. There is a sauna, infused with fresh therapeutic herbs, and a salt steam room infused with aromatherapy oils, colour light therapy and natural salt inhalation. The spa and garden floor is complete with a treatment room for massages and beauty treatments, a large exercise studio for Pilates or bespoke 1-2-1 fitness training and a changing area lined with locker cupboards and private changing/ bathrooms and monsoon shower rooms.

Opening out from the wellness lounge is the central garden courtyard which is arranged with outside seating areas where homeowners can enjoy a coffee and read a book or the morning papers. The development’s two mansion buildings were designed by award-winning architect Sergison Bates and are connected by a grand entrance lobby.

The communal areas, amenity spaces and penthouse show apartment, which is all available for prospective buyers to view, have been designed by renowned international design studio 1508 London. 1508 London took inspiration from celebrated artist Dame Barbara Hepworth (1903- 1975) who lived in Hampstead during the 1920s and 1930s, which allows residents homeowners and visitors alike to become surrounded by local cultural history as they walk through the building.
