Built in 1780, the old courthouse is a listed landmark building, perched atop the highest point in London, with glorious views across West, South and East London. Hazel found it in a dilapidated state in 2006, there was no staircase, the only access was from an outside ladder! But she fell in love with it all the same...
In the living room, Hazel and her team restored the ceiling and sourced a beautiful fireplace from France as the original had been pulled out long before. They then installed glass double doors so that she could enjoy the views and the feeling of being in the heart of Hampstead.
Working with prestigious architects and contemporary artists, Hazel completely transformed the house, including adding a study for her husband, his and hers ensuites, a fourth bedroom, shower and utility room in the basement, garden landscaping and finally, the crowning glory; a sleek and elegant, open plan Boffi kitchen in glacier white, for entertaining guests.
