Robert Adam Highgate home set to rival Buckingham Palace

North London’s Witanhurst House – the largest private residence in London bar Buckingham Palace – could be restored to its former glory if planners give massive new proposals the go ahead

The Grade II-listed building, which was designed by George Hubbard and built between 1913-20, has stood vacant for many years but its new owners are hoping to restore and expand the Highgate residence.

The planning application submitted to Camden Council says the service wing of the 65-room house – which appeared in the BBC’s Fame Academy – would be demolished, the front facade remodelled and a new Orangery building constructed.

But the most ambitious part of the plans, drawn up by London architect Robert Adam, are proposals for a new basement, which would include parking for 24 cars, a cinema, swimming pool, beauty parlous, wine cellars and gyms.
