A 1920s Hampstead house could be demolished to make way for a six-storey block of flats.

Under plans recently submitted to Camden Council, new flats would replace the existing building at 37 Heath Drive, near Finchley Road.

The house, which was built in the 1920s in a neo-Georgian style, is currently split into two family homes.

The new block would be two storeys taller and have space for ten flats.

Most would have three bedrooms, while the others will be of two or four bedrooms.

A gym and yoga facilities, alongside storage for 24 bicycles and four electric car parking spaces, are also proposed as part of the development.

None of the flats would be on sale as affordable housing, planning documents submitted by applicant TAISHI Ltd state.

Landscaping work at the site is expected to include new tree planting, green walls and green roofs.

The applicant claims that once realised, the development will “enhance the character and appearance of the surrounding townscape above the existing neutral looking building”.

Comments on the application, which was submitted at the end of last month, can be made until April 28.

Full details of the plans can be found at Camden Council’s planning portal, under reference 2023/5352/P.
