New house in Highgate, London

New house in Highgate, London

A new house in the Old English style of the Arts & Crafts movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries located in Highgate, London. This is a style seen elsewhere in the Highgate Conservation Area and the new design shares many of the characteristics of the two adjacent houses and sits harmoniously with them. High quality facing brick are used under steeply pitched plain tiled hipped roofs with subsidiary dormers and decorative brick detailing to wall returns. Many details including roof verges and some window surrounds are a deliberate echo of its neighbours and the building is high quality, energy efficient, durable and low maintenance. This new house preserves and enhances the character of the Highgate Conservation Area as required by PPG15 and the London Borough of Haringey¹s UDP policy.
