No. 79 is a new development of apartments on Fitzjohn’s Avenue, a prestigious tree-lined avenue that leads up to Hampstead Village. This neighbourhood of mansion houses has a history of noted writers and artists, from novelist Max Pemberton who lived at No. 50, to royal portraitist Philip de László who lived and worked at No. 3.
Award-winning architects Sergison Bates have designed the two mansion blocks of No. 79 to be a modern contribution to this historic street, as the buildings owe much to the varied architecture of the area. As people enter No. 79, they are faced with the grand entrance foyer and its spiral staircase that leads up to the apartments.
The two and three bedroom apartments have generous, well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings. Each apartment has an allocated parking space in the innovative automated car park underneath the buildings. But for when you’d like to spend the day at home in the fresh air, there is a paved terrace that everyone in No. 79 can access on the ground floor – it’s the perfect spot for a cold drink or a picnic.
No. 79 is a microcosm of Hampstead Village: people who live here can make the most of all London has to offer, from music and theatre, to talks and walking tours. Living in one of these apartments offers access to the highest standards of concierge services and spaces such as the spa, with its hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room and gym, and the social kitchen where barista-served coffee is available.
So whether you prefer to throw dinner parties in the spacious dining room of your own flat, or invite friends to enjoy coffee and a bite to eat in the social kitchen, there’s always a place for the vibrancy of Hampstead in No. 79. When it comes to all that Hampstead has to offer – to say nothing of Central London – you can always ask the concierge for recommendations for restaurants, shows and galleries. There is even a guest suite with an en suite bathroom should visitors wish to stay over.
Hampstead Village is a five-minute walk away: a fascinating walk, which winds through historic streets that have more Blue Plaques than anywhere else in London. The village offers a mixture of independent boutiques, cafés, pubs and restaurants. The Everyman Cinema and the Hampstead Theatre provide entertainment that easily rivals London’s West End.
Hampstead Heath, one of London’s largest open spaces, is just a ten-minute walk from No. 79. The Heath feels more like the open countryside, hilly and studded with ancient woodlands, criss-crossed by rambling footpaths. For those after a bracing swim, there are the swimming ponds and lido at Parliament Hill Fields.
