A new development of two twin homes located on Child’s Hill offers high-spec luxury accommodation to buyers seeking tranquillity from the hustle and bustle of the city, but within easy reach of its amenities.
Arranged over four levels, the homes boast a kitchen come dining room with on-trend drop pendant lights and lounge with outdoor terrace, as well as a fully equipped cinema room, four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. 27 and 29 Hermitage Lane offer 2,700 and 2,550 sq ft of accommodation respectively.
A modern design, both semi-detached properties incorporate several of the features usually associated with a period home, including high ceilings and tall doors whilst large, slim framed windows allow natural light to flood the property.
The statement feature is a bespoke oak and steel staircase, which echoes the palette of the homes which, with their luxurious stone finishes, carry through into the landscaped gardens. The front and internal doors are made of oak, with engineered oak floors on the ground and lower ground floors and hallways.
Natural materials have been used wherever possible, with limestone cladding framing the fireplace and porch. A cantilevered bench in the rear garden is made from iroko wood.
The homes feature a range of mod cons and come fully equipped for entertaining. The kitchens have been individually designed by Alno and have stone worktops with integrated Siemens appliances, Hans Grohe taps and Liebherr wine cooler.
Home automation ensure the properties are future-proofed, with pre-installed centralised systems with a single remote control and full alarm system and intercom. For parties, the homes feature integrated speakers to five rooms including the master bedroom, and full surround sound in the cinema room, accessed via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
Elsewhere, roof lights are remote control operated and feature integrated blinds, whilst light fittings in the front and rear gardens are designer, accessed via large sliding patio doors. There is off street parking for two cars at both properties.
For the environmentally conscious, low energy LED lights are installed throughout the property, whilst a wood burning stove is incorporated in the living room. Also in use is a 250 litre hot water cylinder, zonal temperature control, and air circulation system with heat exchanger.
The development presents a tranquil location for buyers looking for understated sumptuousness in a much sought-after Hampstead location close to the natural beauty of the Heath, without sacrificing the luxuries that 21st century living can offer.
