A rare and magnificent Gothic Grade II listed home with an exceptionally rich and colourful history. Formerly the home of the Hollywood actor David Warbeck, who acted with Joan Crawford, Ava Gardner, Anthony Quinn, Jack Pallance, Peter Cushing and even Anoushka Hempel. He spent 20 years lovingly restoring the property into a heady mix of mirror and gilt, pointed arches, draperies, all merged together into a spectacular and esoteric fusion of camp and kitsch and the authentically Victorian.

Originally, this high Victorian gothic folly was built by associates of Sir George Gilbert Scott at the time of the construction of St Pancras Station and the property has been the scene of many a musical soiree when Gilbert and Sullivan, George Grossmith and Ellen Terry would perform in the house's miniature salon theatre.

Today, the property provides accommodation extending to approximately 3,800 sq ft / 353 sq m, arranged over two floors and comprising 3 spectacular Gothic-style reception rooms, a further spacious more informal living room / 4th reception, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom & dressing area, 5 further bedrooms, 4 shower/bathrooms and guest cloakrooms, study / 6th bedroom, kitchen, cobbled front courtyard behind secure gates and high walls with off-street parking for 3 cars; and lastly, to the rear of the property is a large paved private west-facing terrace with fountain and access to a mature 80' garden.

Located within easy walking distance of the centre of Hampstead village as well as close to Belsize Park village and therefore close to all amenities (as well as public transport - 3 Tube stops nearby) that this sought-after area has to offer.
