Set back on a leafy Highgate street, two stone columns mark the entrance to The Grove. Beyond a traditional frontage, contemporary design and palatial proportions characterise every room.
A sleek black door sets the tone, opening to a hallway enveloped in deep hues. Dark grey walls offer a cool contrast to warm wood flooring. Drawing attention to the dramatic staircase, a striking chandelier spans the three-storey atrium.
Through an arched doorway, herringbone flooring sweeps across an open-plan reception and dining room. An alluring juxtaposition of period and modern features plays out – intricate cornicing contrasting a commanding grey marble fireplace. Inviting textures – a teal velvet sofa and soft navy carpet – construct a space that invites relaxation. Illuminated by a Gaetano Sciolari-inspired chandelier, a grand oval dining table accommodates 12. Flooding the space with natural light, three sets of French doors open to a patio with sandstone tiles. Beyond, mature trees and nurtured florals lend privacy to a sprawling green space.
Soaring ceiling heights continue through to the kitchen, where textural details ground the room. Wood and marble countertops sit atop Prussian blue cabinetry. Extending up the walls, a marble backsplash adds dimension to pristine white walls. Illuminated by a triple-pane sash window, an art installation of silver spoons appears to descend from the ceiling. An Aga oven and circular dining table combine form with function.
Spread across the first floor, sleek styling injects a dose of modernism in the principal bedroom suite. Against grey walls, a cream hexagonal headboard highlights an expansive bed framed by pendant lights. Two plush armchairs are serene spots to take in the views of the garden. To the rear of the room, discreet doors lead to an expansive dressing room and study. In the en suite bathroom, mirrors above the dual vanity and opposite the window effortlessly reflect light across marble tiling. A large freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower complete the space.
Four further bedrooms positioned over the second floor embody the home’s lofty proportions, each with integrated storage space. One benefits from an en suite, the others served by a family bathroom. At the top of the home, an open-plan area radiates versatility and can act as a fifth bedroom. Bright white walls and floorboards enhance the sense of space, while a deep blue border adds depth.
A staircase on the ground floor descends to a luxuriously fitted cinema room, wine cellar, and a flexible space ideal as a gym.
