West Hill Park, Highgate
Welcome to the web site of the West Hill Park estate.
This site is for the benefit of residents of the estate and also for visitors and prospective purchasers.
West Hill Park is a private estate of 44 houses and eight flats close to the centre of Highgate Village in North London, and also bordering on Hampstead Heath. In addition to its excellent position, it has award winning architecture and high quality gardens and common spaces. Its streets are no through roads, and there is little traffic.
This site has news, contacts and information about the estate. It also sets out what the company does, and its ultimate objective, which is to ensure that the attractive character and appearance of the estate is retained and will continue to be enjoyed by residents in the future.
The estate lies within the Highgate Conservation Area, and benefits from a high level of statutory protection. This protection, together with the obligations set out in each resident’s Deed of Covenant, has ensured that the character and appearance of the estate has remained largely unaltered since it was built in the mid 1970s.
When West Hill Park was added to the Highgate Conservation Area in 1978, Camden’s supporting statement contained the following enthusiastic reference to West Hill Park and makes it clear why it is one of the most sought after residential areas in Highgate:
“West Hill Park by Ted Levy, Benjamin and Partners is an example of low level high density brick and concrete housing carefully sculptured to the falling terrain and screened in a manner that makes it almost invisible from the surrounding public spaces. The standards of maintenance and control of the buildings and landscape within this estate should be a model to others.”
The day to day responsibility for maintaining the estate lies with the directors of the West Hill Park Management Company who have been elected by residents at the company’s Annual General Meeting. The Company’s tasks include the common parts of the estate with seasonal planting and gardening, together with the cleaning and maintenance of the vehicular and pedestrian areas.
