Rich with original details, this handsome mid-19th Century detached house was built in the Gothic Revival style and impresses with complete authenticity. Standing amongst other fine homes within the exclusive Harrow on the Hill Conservation Area and measuring some 2,750sq/ft, a small independent annexe is included along with a garage and delightful gardens. Grand proportions, tall ceilings, beautiful fireplaces and original timber and tiled floors all add to this fabulous property’s rare appeal.
Distinctive and imposing, the house offers 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and excellent living space including a full-length hallway and large timber conservatory. A significant, Locally Listed property, it is described as being "… very distinctive, largely due to its stone dressings and two battlements style, with stepped, unevenly sized and levelled gables facing London Road. This style is a reminder of the Grade II Listed Old Schools building which is of a similar date and is within the Harrow School conservation area. There are stone framed windows and a lancet front door. The side addition works well, since it is lightweight and unobtrusive." You will also note the castle-like parapets, pointed Gothic-arched entries, steeply pitched roof and front-facing gable.
Views from the house are a further delight, ranging from woodland behind, to views along the historic High Street and to the horizon from the front. Outside the landscaped gardens are well planted with a lawn and circular patio placed to take advantage of sunlight. Potential may exist to develop the annexe area with its established tool store and canopied entrance, subject to planning consent. To the front is an ample gravel driveway, providing parking and access to a single garage.
The historic buildings of the world-famous Harrow School are part of the picturesque Hill. Harrow School shares its first class facilities with Hill residents who can enjoy membership of its Fitness Club with state of the art gym and 25 meter swimming pool, lawn tennis club and golf club. The Friends of Harrow School caters for those interested in the Arts with free concerts, plays and lectures. The Harrow Hill Trust organizes community events and guided walks.
Harrow on the Hill village is an 'oasis' 10 miles from London, with a unique atmosphere and great road and rail connections to both London and the Home Counties. From its origins as a mediaeval settlement and the seat of the famous Harrow School, it further rewards with its many green spaces known only to locals, independent coffee shops, cocktail bars & restaurants for entertaining, and a friendly, cohesive community.
