The art of living well

Leading developer Lifestory has unveiled details of Fitzjohn’s in London’s Hampstead – a range of stunning apartments with bespoke interior design

Lifestory Group, a leading developer of premium retirement communities in Central London, has recently unveiled details of Fitzjohn’s – the group’s new residential development which launches in September 2021.

Located in Hampstead Village, it will provide 29 individually designed luxury residences with hotel-style facilities including a concierge, club lounge, library, health spa, stretch studio, automated underground car park and a beautiful, landscaped courtyard garden. Fitzjohn’s is arguably Lifestory Group’s most luxurious London development to date with inspired architecture, bespoke design interiors and specially curated furniture pieces, handcrafted lighting and accessories and original artwork by local Hampstead artists.

Fitzjohn’s architecture is by award-winning practice Sergison Bates, with the development enjoying a prime London location at No.79 Fitzjohn’s Avenue, on the summit of the avenue, just a few hundred yards from the heart of Hampstead Village, with all of its outstanding local shops, cafes, deli-outlets and restaurants.

Renowned international design studio 1508 London has also been commissioned to design and dress Fitzjohn’s communal areas, amenity spaces and penthouse-style show residence. It is the first time that the luxury design studio, whose work includes exceptional private homes, superyachts and The

Lanesborough, Carlton Tower and Four Seasons hotels has helped to design and dress the interiors of a modern living development.

Legacy of luxury

Originally built between 1876 to 1886 by local landowner Spencer Maryon-Wilson and builder John Culverhouse, Fitzjohn’s Avenue was originally lined with 70 grand villas and chestnut trees, with the design inspired by the leafy Hampstead surroundings. Inspired by the grandeur of the avenue and the local area’s Victorian mansion blocks and villas, part of Hampstead’s rich architectural heritage, Fitzjohn’s consists of two mansion buildings connected by a ground floor entrance lobby, designed in a contemporary interpretation of British Arts and Crafts style. The elegant Arts and Crafts inspired facades have feature brickwork with corbelled detailing, hexagonal bays with large full height windows, Juliet balconies and sculptural Nouveau style balustrades.

Prices at Fitzjohn’s will start from £2m with the development launching in September 2021.
