Grove View Apartments, London NW5: £750,000

Modern Gothic

Halloween is here and as a special treat we tasked our property search team with a difficult brief: a spooky gothic pile with a contemporary feel that won't scare your dates away.  After an intensive search they came up with this luxury 2 bedroom penthouse apartment in a suitably gothic church conversion in Dartmouth Park, a stone's throw away from Hampstead Heath.

What the agent says:
"Interior designed, luxury apartment in Dartmouth Park. This contemporary and spacious property, located on 3rd/4th floor levels, provides 2 double bedrooms, luxury bathroom, a large reception room with fully fitted open plan kitchen & breakfast bar and forms part of a stunning Church conversion."

What we love:
The contrast between the gothic exterior of the building and the light, contemporary fit-out of the apartment.  The double-height entrance hallway and mezzanine overlooking the front elevation with stained glass and pointed arch is particularly impressive.

What can be improved:
The slick contemporary interior is nice enough, but wouldn't it be fun to add a few gothic touches to reference the history of the building?  A four-poster bed perhaps, or maybe a video installation showing Sleepy Hollow on a loop.

Prices and details correct as at 30 October 2015.
