Sophisticated opulence - 49 The Bishops Avenue

15th December 2008 Print
Sophisticated opulence - 49 The Bishops Avenue Situated on one of the London's most desirable roads, 49 The Bishops Avenue has been turning heads since the project was completed. World-renowned architects, Hamilton Associates, have produced a handsome gated development comprising 14 elegant two, three and four bedroom apartments - designed and finished to an exceptionally high standard.

The Bishops Avenue is home to some of the most valuable property in the UK with recent house sales achieving between £20m and £50m. It is ideally located between the villages of Hampstead and Highgate, with easy access into The West End, but the biggest attraction for residents remain the wide open spaces of Hampstead Heath and adjacent Highgate and Hampstead golf courses.

49 The Bishops Avenue is an exquisite new development which sets a new benchmark for quality and style in Hampstead. The apartments are set within a secure gated environment offering all the luxuries and benefits of the larger houses on the Avenue, yet for a fraction of the price.

The grounds extend to two acres and embrace mature trees, shrubs and extensive landscaping including a woodland walk. All the apartments are distributed within three individual buildings, Maple Court, Hazel Court and Ebony Court, which take full advantage of the landscaped grounds and central courtyard.

Simon Barry, partner at Knight Frank handling the sales, commented: "The exterior architecture is contemporary and elegantly proportioned and the use of complimentary cladding materials - timber, brick and tiles - softens the abstract geometry of the design, as does a combination of pitched and flat roofs. Each of the apartments also include generous outside space in the form of either balconies, terraces or private gardens."

Interiors are cool and contemporary, with excellent specification and particular attention to detail contributing to an upscale look. 49 The Bishops Avenue has been built to world-class standards for those seeking the ultimate in sophisticated technology.

The apartments include a mood lighting system, Crestron centrally controlled audio/visual system with Bowers & Wilkins speakers, fitted 42" plasma screens to master bedrooms and some family rooms, fitted LCD TV screens to kitchen and master bedrooms, category 5 wiring to all principal rooms and bedrooms, under-floor heating, air-cooling (except bathrooms), all of which is complemented by the comfort of luxurious bathroom and kitchen fittings - finished with the finest natural materials and fitted with the highest quality white goods.

All the apartments are unique in layout, providing a feeling of individuality. Additional benefits include direct lift access to all apartments, 24 concierge, site wide CCTV security cameras, two underground car parking spaces and private storage room included in the price. The development also boasts a gymnasium and a 14 metre residents' swimming pool finished in natural stone.

Simon continued: "It is unusual to find a new development so conveniently located in a premiere road yet within easy reach of central London whilst still offering a real sense of tranquillity. We expect to attract broad variety of purchaser profiles - international buyers with young families, North London buyers down-sizing from larger houses, and local residents who want a ‘lock up and leave' London base, all of which will enjoy the convenience of a secure and managed development" .

49 The Bishops Avenue is for sale through Knight Frank LLP with prices starting at £2,825,000 for a two bedroom apartment, £3,850,000 for a three bedroom apartment and £7,250,000 for a four bedroom garden flat.
