‘Rescuing’ a House in the The Bishops Avenue

Modern, Period

Architects at 4D Studio have recently completed a commission to rebuild well over 50% of this striking building to rescue it from severe water penetration. The leaks were located in the existing very large subterranean rear extension that we now have excavated, partially demolished and rebuilt.

Stratheden is located in north London’s exclusive Bishops Avenue The house once again offers the ultimate in luxury, with wall-to-wall mirrors, steam-room, and a ballroom with polished floor the size of a normal house.

Originally built in Cape Dutch style in 1925, it is one of the largest houses on a street that accomodates some of the UK’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 house has nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, five reception rooms and almost one acre of land.

One of the stand-out features of the mansion, a major part of which we have recently rebuilt, is the 2,700sq/ft ballroom making it perfect for entertaining guests.

The room, which could also double up as an art gallery, has the same floor-space as an average family home.

Stratheden also has a 12-metre indoor swimming pool with separate gym, steam and sauna rooms, and a massage/hairdressing/spa room.

Stratheden has Cape Dutch architecture and this is unique in the area.  That is why the local authority has listed the building and, in so doing preserved its architectural heritage.

The property is spread over four floors with the leisure complex which includes a cinema based on the subterranean level.

Outside, there is a huge drive at the front while the rear boasts an Italian sunken garden, and a two-bedroom cottage for staff.
