They said: ‘A breathtaking four bedroomed house beside Waterlow Park and on the outer edge of Highgate Cemetery, designed by the celebrated architects Eldridge Smerin.

‘The South and West elevations are fully glazed, providing spectacular leafy views across the cemetery and wonderful, light-filled spaces.

‘By contrast, the street facade is mysterious and private, a curtain wall of honed black granite, steel panels and opaque glass.

‘The house is perfect for modern living, it has a massive open-plan entertaining room, a kitchen dining room with a retractable glass roof and a beautiful glass walled study.

‘All the first and second floor rooms have balconies, whilst the ground floor bedrooms open onto a small private terrace.

‘The house has starred in several TV shows, both programmes about the house and shows using it as a location, and it is featured in several books on modern architecture.

‘The present owners have also hosted regular live music events in it, and describe it as a perfect house to live in.

‘The distinguished modernist architect John Winter (whose original building it replaced) described it as “as near to a faultless building as I have seen for a long time”. This is only the second time it has been sold.’
