Beechworth Close, Hampstead


On an exceptional plot bordering Hampstead Heath this new home sits within extensive gardens, which extend to the Heaths border. Planning permission was successfully achieved in May 2024 to replace an existing late-1950s house with a new 6,000 sq ft home.


Located on Beechworth Close, the house sits amongst some of London’s best examples of mid-century modernist houses, and modernist-inspired contemporary homes, with neighbouring works by Patrick Gwynne and Strom Architects. Further exemplary mid-century works form the remainder of this unique modernist enclave. The design therefore follows the post-war tradition conscientiously in order to contribute to this existing heritage.


The main entrance to the house is via a double-height atrium within a tiered extension at first floor, clad in timber batten panels filtering light and shadow into the lobby.


The plan has been developed to facilitate a diverse lifestyle that includes intimate, private rooms for time spent with family; and light, open spaces for entertaining within a double height reception room with extensive glazing overlooking the Heath. Upstairs bedrooms are orientated towards the East and West, affording views of the verdant setting of Hampstead Heath which surrounds the garden through floor to ceiling glazing.


A guest suite with roof terrace at second floor level afford panoramic views across the tree canopy of the Heath.
