A stunning development situated on The Bishops Avenue in Hampstead, one of London’s most elite roads, has just launched its final phase for discerning buyers.
The development, Buxmead, has already established itself as the area’s most desirable new address, featuring 20 apartments including six duplexes, three penthouses and 11 apartments, set within 2.5 acres of private, gated, landscaped grounds, offering an unparalleled standard of living and facilities.
The award-winning Buxmead, by leading boutique developer Harrison Varma, has sold 80 per cent of its first phase properties, achieving record prices per sq ft.
Stephen Lindsay at Savills adds: “Buxmead is high end luxury at its best, comparable to only One Hyde Park. Its represents good value as buyers get 16,000 sq ft of amenity space with so many facilities that visitor’s never even need to see residents homes. It supersedes anything I have ever seen in London and with this class of exceptional living there will always be demand, no matter how the market is faring.”
Buxmead is introducing a complete lifestyle service not seen before in a residential development, it encapsulates the finest hotel so residents can enjoy an effortless lifestyle. Amenities include a round-the-clock ‘white glove’ concierge service, business centre, a 25-m indoor swimming pool, spa, Tecnogym, beauty salon, residents lounge, 18-seat professional cinema, games room, private dining room for 18 guests and even a reception space for events up to 100 guests.
Anil Varma, Managing Director at Harrison Varma, comments: “We have achieved consistent sales proving a developer of repute with a quality product will always attract buyers. We have gained a reputation of creating legacy homes that combine with our lifestyle concept are the next level in luxury living.”
Buxmead is set in landscaped gardens featuring mature woodland and plants that bloom all year round, with a bespoke water feature crafted by David Harber and a Summer Pavilion. Internally each apartment is unique, benefiting from the highest specification throughout and Harrison Varma’s interior designer service. Bespoke fixtures and fittings have been handpicked so everything feels exclusive. Homes range in size from 3,000 sq ft to 10,000 sq ft, with smart technology so everything from light to sounds can be controlled from an iPad.
The development has top class security. The car lifts are large enough for a Hummer. Residents have private garages with plenty of spaces for visitors and storage rooms. Duplexes feature their very own express lift taking residents directly from the private garage to apartments.
Buxmead has created a range of show apartments tailored for specific nationalities not seen in a UK scheme before. Inspired by its international buyers, the in-house interior team at Harrison Varma, the leading boutique developer behind this award-winning development, has dressed six apartments showcasing different interior styles, each with a nationality in mind.
Marissa Varma, Head of Design at Harrison Varma, comments: “Our buyers come from around the world. At Buxmead we have residents from Kazakhstan, South Africa, Russia, Iran and the UK. From working with them we have found that most of our international buyers are looking for a ready-made solution. They are busy, often in-and-out of the country and tend not to have contacts in the UK. Often buying their second, third, fourth or even fifth home, they don’t have a lot of possessions or furniture, so we came with up the idea to create several turn-key show apartments to appeal to different countries and their way of living.”
These show apartments include: The Rosewood Apartment (European), The Garden Apartment (Middle Eastern), The Walnut Apartment (Russian) and The Regency Apartment (Asian). While some interiors are formal and traditional others are contemporary and relaxed.
Joint Agent Stephen Lindsay at Savills adds: “It’s not usual to have more than one show apartment at a scheme, but it is the first time a development in the UK has created a range of apartments for specific nationalities. Buxmead stands out for its quality and style and these stunning show apartments will now make it even more enticing to specific nationalities as they are appealing to their way of living.”
Buxmead is situated on one of London’s most sought-after addresses - The Bishops Avenue, which attracts buyers from around the world drawn to its prime location - equidistant to two of North London’s most exclusive and chic urban villages Hampstead and Highgate.
Loved by their residents these popular and famous villages both have their own charm and character with a wide selection of shops, boutiques, restaurants and gastro pubs, as well as being within 10 miles of 20 of the top 100 private schools in the country.
