Highpoint is an elegant apartment located on North Hill, London, England, and is available for rent.
The interior is decorated in earthen tones, with bright walls and clear windows to allow in natural light.
“This meticulously restored three-bedroom flat is situated on the second floor of Highpoint, perhaps the finest Modernist building in London. It has a favourable position at the rear, with stunning views over trees and gardens.
Designed by Berthold Lubetkin in the 1930s, Highpoint has been listed at Grade I by English Heritage in recognition of its extraordinary architectural quality. The building is very well maintained, and has a porter, lift access, glorious communal gardens, residents’ tennis courts and a heated outdoor swimming pool, as well as a fabulous entrance hall. There is off-street parking for residents on a first-come first-served basis.
The apartment has three double bedrooms, a wonderful 30ft reception room with access to a balcony, a newly fitted kitchen which is partly open-plan to the reception and a utility room. The interior has been refurbished to a design by Avanti, who are well known for their exemplary restorations of Modernist buildings. They have retained the original features where possible, including the door furniture and the original kitchen, which has been converted into a utility room. This is undoubtedly one of the finest and most well-preserved apartments in the building.
Highpoint is conveniently located within a short walk of both Highgate Village – with its shops, cafés and restaurants – and Highgate underground station (Northern Line). The open spaces of Hampstead Heath and Waterlow Park are also within close proximity.”
