Vive la Villa Doria
Catherine Golding is excited to extol the virtues of Villa Doria in Heath Drive – and it’s easy to see why…
Villa Doria is a magnificent, seven-bedroom, detached ambassadorial residence on Heath Drive in NW3. It is on the market with Marcus Parfitt – and it is stunning.
Set back from the road behind a 170ft frontage, this wonderful property (of 6,400sq ft or 596sq m) comprises bright and spacious accommodation predominantly arranged over three floors.
The old and the new live together in perfect harmony. This is evident when you view the stunning, modern library alongside the more traditional reception rooms or indeed the expansive area to the rear against the spectacular staircase.
The library (which could easily be self-contained), sits within mature, landscaped gardens that include a large level south-west facing lawn, a formal sunken garden and several al fresco dining and seating areas. Meanwhile, to the front of the house is a sweeping gated carriage drive with parking for six to seven vehicles, while to the side of the house, there is additional secure off-street parking leading to an integral garage.
The home is situated in a favoured location within walking distance of Hampstead Village, the many local schools and numerous transport links into Central London.
So, with the perfect blend of traditional and modern, space galore and a lovely location, what more could you ask for?
Well, if I were you I would ask for a viewing. It’s a good place to start and you will not regret it…
