There’s no shortage of incredible interior designs in London, particularly in the affluent area of Primrose Hill, London.
But, this particular five-bedroom house in Wadham Gardens is home to a number of much-desired features.
From its elegant mezzanine library to its modernist-inspired stained glass window, there’s lots to be admired.
Following its transformation from its former “dated” state, the luxurious space boasts a home cinema, spa, swimming pool, and a wine cellar – thanks to a design by Jeremy Wiggins, of architect and interior design practice gpad london.
But that’s not all: as well as an elegant interior and some of the most high-technology features, this property also hides a huge secret.
Make your way through the house and into the newly extended basement, and you’ll discover the cinema, pool, gym and steamroom.
Formerly serving as a coal cellar, this space also boasts a dramatically lit walk-in wine cave.
But, it’s in the plush underground cinema room which guests may – or may not – discover this house’s little-known feature.
This eight-seater room features a number of curtains, in order to create the desired effect in the screening-room.
However, as the owner Adam Andrews explains, one of these curtains can be lifted at the flick of a button, in order to reveal the unexpected.
In fact, behind one curtain lies a glass panel – which gives residents and their visitors a glimpse at their vehicle parked in the car dock.
Owner Adam Andrews said: “This is not just another ostentatious house with a mega basement.
“It would have been far easier to knock down a building and start from scratch than the riskier and more detailed process of holding up an existing building whilst putting a basement in.”
He added: “From the outside it’s lovely, Edwardian, double-fronted and with all original features kept.
“Yet when you come in you have all these things you’d find in a house with an eight-figure price tag.
“I especially love the carlift; you just press a button to lift a curtain, and you see your beautiful classic car behind a glass, like a museum piece.”
The car dock allows the occupier to keep their car away from the road, and the system elevates the vehicle up to the front drive.
Elsewhere in the property, there’s a golf simulator, two ground floor reception rooms, and a mezzanine library.
Another property based in County Durham made headlines recently, after it was put on the market for a guide price of £3,200,000.
The one-of-a-kind property promised an array of space, a library, and its very own tennis court – as well as a model farm which are attributed to the late politician, architect and collector, Sir Thomas Robinson.
