Five Cannon Lane, a 7,940-square-foot (737 square metres), five-storey luxury abode in Hampstead Village in London, is on the market now. The LEAF Award-winning property comes with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, multiple reception areas, spa area and indoor pool, plus a terraced garden designed by Chelsea Flower Show gold medalist Chris Beardshaw. Design enthusiasts are expected to warm to the contemporary minimalist home, which boasts the handiwork of Claudio Silvestrin, known for his partnership with Giorgio Armani and collaborations with Kanye West, Calvin Klein and Anish Kapoor. Silvestrin designed the house in such a way as to impart a sense of zen feel to it, with calming water features all throughout. "The feeling of Five Cannon Lane is one of calm and serenity; it's almost a meditative space," he said. The property uses GBP1 million worth of porphyry stone, from the Italian Dolomites, along with lavish use of oak and oxidized metal. Each piece of stone used in the property was cut precisely for the location and position in which it was finally to be fitted. This means that no single piece of stone is more than 3 millimeters out of position.   Kanye-West1 Technology is mostly hidden and there is no ornamentation of any kind, Silvestrin emphasised. "However there is drama " the 42-step stone staircase that leads down to the pool and spa which recalls an ancient site."' The stone staircase leads down to the first lower floor, which contains the home cinema, dining room, pantry, and kitchen. The pantry is climate-controlled, even walk-in, while the kitchen boasts fittings by Minotti Cucine. The property opens to vast views of the London skyline through walls of glass toward the terrace that overlooks a four-level garden designed by Beardshaw. All bedrooms have balconies; a fifth one at the rooftop has its own garden. The property also boasts a spa and pool complex, which has a cascade separated by a glass wall and door. To the left of the pool is a gym, changing facilities, sauna and steam room. The property sells for GBP22.5 million (USD29.2 million) through sole agent Beauchamp Estates. "Five Cannon Lane is an exceptional property in a wonderfully secluded setting," said Rosy Khalastchy, consultant at Beauchamp Estates. "The discrete nature of the property: unobtrusively nestling in Cannon Lane, like a hidden gemstone. Once inside, the true nature and scale of the house starts to reveal itself, showing clearly how the spectacular design and space is super for both relaxed living and entertaining."   5 Canon Lane 5 Canon Lane Kanye-West4 5 Canon Lane 5 Canon Lane 5 Canon Lane 5 Canon Lane 5 Canon Lane   by Al Gerard de la Cruz, Property Report Save Save
