This $6.9million Home is only 8 Feet above the Ground …But it Has a Huge Surprise

,

This one-of-a-kind home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a cinema, a wine cellar, and a garden. It’s on the real estate market for £4.5million. A few years ago, Langtry House in Hampstead Heath was just a row of garages. Planning permission was given for their demolition and they were replaced with a new home. The rules stated that the new home wasn’t allowed to be higher than the building it replaced, so the architects had to design and build underground. The result is a new well-disguised house.

A few years ago, this place was just a row of garages. This is the house pictured from above now.

The architects had to work around the rule that the house could not be higher than the structure it replaced. So, they built downwards. Shown in the picture is one of the three bedrooms.

Director of Aston Chase, Mark Pollack, said, “The house has been masterfully conceived in the rear car park of a mansion block and now all the outside world sees is a subtle, yet beautifully engineered wooden fence-like facade“. In the picture is an en suite bedroom.
