    • LOCATION Daleham Gardens is situated on the southern slopes of Hampstead, running north from Belsize Lane to Lyndhurst Road. There are good local shops and restaurants less than 200 metres away in Belsize Village, whilst the cosmopolitan Hampstead Village is also close by. Schools: The house is ideally situated for several of the area’s highly regarded independent schools: South Hampstead (girls, 4 to 18 years), Devonshire House (mixed, 2 to 13 years), North Bridge House (mixed, 2 to 13 years), The Hall (boys, 4 to 13 years) and University College School (boys, 7 to 18 years). Many children in the area travel daily to some of the best schools in England: Westminster, City of London, Haberdashers’ and North London Collegiate. Two international schools are also nearby, The Southbank International School in Maresfield Gardens and the American School London in St John’s Wood. Transport: The house has the advantage of being within a short walking distance of public transport links. It is between Swiss Cottage Underground Station (Jubilee Line, for the West End and Canary Wharf) which is less than 500 metres walk and Belsize Park (Northern Line, for the City and St Pancras International) which is approximately 800 metres. A similar distance away at Finchley Road station, the London Overground has trains to Stratford (Olympic Park and Westfield Shopping Centre) and links to Gatwick and Luton Airports.
    • Historical Note Daleham Gardens is named after a 15th Century house on the Sussex estate of the former Lord of the Manor of Hampstead, Spencer Maryon Wilson. The handsome Victorian houses at the southern end of the road were built in the 1880s by the firm of Herbert & Edward Kelly. Victory House was the former home of John Bowlby, the eminent child psychologist, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, notable for his interest in child development and his pioneering work on attachment theory.   4
    • Bespoke Features Ironwork: The original ironwork has been the inspiration for the drama of the new. Following removal from site, the best of the fine Victorian metalwork was retained, restored and, where necessary, new sections were fabricated by hand to replace pieces beyond repair. The extensive contemporary ironwork throughout the house is designed by the celebrated Blacksmith James Horrobin and hand-made at the Doverhay Forge (makers of the Churchill Memorial Screen at St Paul’s). Using the original language of the restored Victorian metalwork for his inspiration, James Horrobin has created beautiful designs that are wonderfully intricate. From the seamless and elegant principal staircase, with its cool LED lighting, to the front gates which open at the touch of a button, the ironwork is a powerful marriage of traditional and modern. Even the antique radiators have been retained and painstakingly modernised. Elegantly decorative, they have been completely renovated and skilfully reconstructed, so that they are an integral and efficient part of the modern heating system. Throughout the house, all the fine fireplaces are original, apart from in the dining room. Here a striking modern fireplace has been installed, designed by Foster Lomas architects and a leading granite specialist. 6

    • Bespoke Features Glass: The glass used throughout the house is by Firman Glass, one of the most innovative glass companies in the world, who built the spectacular all glass staircase for Apple’s London flagship store. In Daleham Gardens Firman have been actively involved on the project from conception through to completion, creating stunning and unique glass designs. Lighting: A beautifully lit environment was fundamental to the architect’s design. During the day the house takes full advantage of its southerly aspect. Large windows flood the interior with a vast amount of daylight. Strategically designed light wells, and a reflective pool, bathe the garden floor in soothing natural light. After dark, the computer controlled lighting system allows a multitude of moods. Small energy efficient LED light sources are discreetly integrated into the architectural elements. Decorative lighting fittings, such as chandeliers, provide additional light and become focal features in principal rooms. 10

    • Bespoke Features Wood: Marquetry: The drawing room floor is made of English oak, caramelised in France. It is an exact copy of the original handcut floor that was beyond restoration. Ardern Hodges, a leading flooring company, collaborated with the architect and marquetry craftsmen to develop a new technique to create “the impossible”. Laser guided saws were programmed to cut the template and inlay, yielding the same handmade design as before, but with computer controlled perfection. Each section is also layered cross grain against the other giving the floor a stunning, intricate pattern with wonderful colour variation that will have greater longevity than the original. Panelling: The bespoke dining room panelling is hand carved in oak by English craftsmen. The beautiful detailing is particularly evident round the dining room door, in the egg and dart chair rail, the acanthus flower carving and the hand carved mirror surround. In order not to compromise the original cross-beamed ceiling plaster, the central chandelier was omitted. Instead the room is lit by concealed cove fittings above the panelling which illuminates the ceiling for dinner. As in the rest of the house, the dining room is fully equipped for music, but the speakers have been cleverly disguised as panels within the walls. Also hidden is a bar with a built-in fridge. On the garden floor, Ardern Hodges have laid bespoke limed oak which has a more contemporary feel and compliments the modern architecture and clean lines of the space. 14

    • Bespoke Features Stone: Throughout the house the art of the stonemason is evident, from the hand carved bathroom basins, cut from the same slab as the floor, to the bath cut from a huge matching slab of travertine. This is craftsmanship of the finest order using materials such as Balzac limestone which will always be a delight to behold. 18
