This charming and stylish Victorian Villa is a true delight, set in the heart of the atmospheric Conservation Area. Few homes in the village provide such characterful accommodation with the space and versatility to suit any lifestyle, plus a lovely level garden just perfect for Summer.
You are greeted by a welcoming hallway, off which is the beautiful front-to-back living room with tall ceiling, bay window, stripped floorboards, 2 fireplaces and steps to outside. On this level is a further room ideal for use as a large study, play space or bedroom. Stepping down to the lower ground floor, you enter a spacious fully fitted luxury kitchen/dining room with utility area, guest cloakroom and conservatory.
Period features abound throughout the house, balanced with contemporary fittings to kitchen and bathroom. The over-size bath & shower room is a wonderful space, with the upstairs then having 3 further rooms, 2 being good-size bedrooms with a smaller 3rd ideal for use as a dressing room, nursery or study. There is also a useful attic above.
The good size garden is accessed from either of the lower floors and provides a relaxing, private space. It is rare to find a level garden in this location, which combined with the proximity to beautiful open spaces and a calming 12-15 minute walk to Harrow on the Hill station, further adds to the desirability of both house and setting.
When you buy within the village you acquire so much more than a home, as the location provides daily delights and is often described as an oasis due to the peaceful, friendly and cohesive atmosphere. From this property you can walk through green spaces all the way to the Underground & Chiltern Line station. The Castle Pub just around the corner is a true gem, with independent coffee shops and cocktail bars to hand on the High Street. There is also a local convenience store and an excellent Waitrose supermarket, at the foot of the Hill.
The area's medieval beginnings originated around West Street, growing gradually denser by the mid-1800's. A picturesque setting, of that there is no doubt and the wooded steeply rising Hill, church spire and grouped buildings form a major landmark and place of quality in a suburban setting. The Hill is one of the key enduring views of Greater London, and the residential nature of the Conservation Area forms a large part of its character and contributes to the area's overall village feel.
