500m of East Finchley tube station and 1100m of Kenwood there is this wonderful house well situated on the west side of The Bishops Avenue on the favoured and fashionable southerly end of the road.
The mansion has recently been extended and refurbished, occupying almost an acre on The Bishops Avenue. The renovation implied, besides the usual stuff, a number of brilliant leisure and entertaining facilities.
There is a detached staff house which could, alternately, be used for guests as well. The rebuilding process implied a number of new features among which a triple volume reception hall, a lift to all floors, large principal reception rooms and a Ballroom of 2,700 square feet can easily be mentioned.
There is also an indoor swimming pool with separate gym and with sauna rooms.
The house was originally built in Cape Dutch style in 1925. It is one of the largest houses on a street that boasts some of the United Kingdom’s most impressive – and expensive – properties.
The Bishops Avenue, also known as Billionaires’ Row, is home to oil barons, oligarchs and royalty from Russia, the Middle East and Africa.
The ambassadorial style house boasts nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and five reception rooms on almost one acre of land.
One of the stand-out features of the mansion is the ballroom which takes up a staggering 2,700sq/ft – making it perfect for entertaining guests.
It also has to be said that the room could also be used as an art gallery.
