The development

Nord’s newbuild residential development at 63 Compton is a modern architectural classic, crafted from Janinhoff bricks.

The 4 apartments (3 x 2 bed, 1 x 2-3 bed) are generously proportioned lateral residences, one per floor, each of the upper floors having its own private lift access.

Ranging from 1,000-1,300 sq ft and with spectacular light and volume, they are much larger than the market standard.

The principal living spaces are up to 39ft long and are finished with Junckers solid timber floors and exposed concrete ceilings providing a stylish and contemporary aesthetic, whilst the temperature moderating properties of the concrete offer a sustainable solution.

Each of the living spaces further enjoy the benefit of a large, private south-facing terrace.  The Third Floor apartment additionally has a north facing terrace.

The depth of quality is underscored by Calacatta Oro marble worktops and Miele appliances in the kitchens.

The development has been listed as a ‘Top Development’ by the Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards and was a finalist in the 2015 RICS Awards in the Residential Category.

All four apartments within the development are sold.
