This semi detatched Victorian home in NW5 has an ideal location, fantastic views and a large, mature garden
Laurier Road, Highgate, NW5, £2,950,000
Laurier Road, originally known as Lewisham Road, and forming part of the conservation area, designated in 1992, rises from York Rise and curves towards Dartmouth Park Road. This grouping of classic semi-detached properties is emphasised by the stepped effect of the land rising eastward giving long views from several directions and the gaps between the houses providing impressive distant views to the hills of Highgate.
Most of the houses are by Smerdon or builders associated with him with the earliest houses possibly dating as early as the 1850s with the original stable and coachman’s house still standing.
Many of the front boundaries are formed by pretty tended hedges and low walls, perfectly framing this fine example of what is a highly sought after and rarely available house.
