If you seek seclusion, privacy and are willing to undertake a significant project, this circa half acre plot and historic Locally Listed residence will be of great interest. Approached along a private roadway named Julian Hill, Bell House is situated adjacent to a little known underground reservoir at the summit of the Hill, covered by grass.
Presently overgrown in places and with tree canopy cover, when the plot is again managed it will provide beautiful, extensive gardens in a peaceful and secret location on exclusive Harrow on the Hill. The gardens contain remnants of the original greenhouses built of glass, timber and iron, over a brick base. What a wonderful sight it would be to see these, the house and the lawns all lovingly restored.
THE COACH HOUSE & STABLES
As a former Coachman's House & Stables this property originally served the adjacent Regency home of Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope's father, Julian Hill House, and is a uniquely desirable place to live within the delightful Conservation Area.
Standing within a lightly wooded half-acre plot at the end of a long private road on Harrow on the Hill, the property is now a significant project following long-term ownership, offering great potential to a discerning buyer with imagination and means.
Built in the early 1800's and Locally Listed for its architectural interest, this historic 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property is in an idyllic spot toward the front of the plot, with Bell House taking its name from a bell still positioned on the wall.
Planning consent was previously granted (now lapsed) for conversion of the stable block to additional accommodation, joined to the house via glass link. The stables retain much of the original cobbled floor, hay feeders, iron partition and pillar, with a further now collapsed area to the right providing considerable additional footprint to convert and re-build/extend, subject to obtaining consent. Please visit the Harrow Planning Search page to see the previous consent granted in 2009, under Reference; Planning Application P/0689/09 - Valid From 25/03/2009.
As a Locally Listed property within a Conservation Area, it will not be possible to demolish and build new on this fabulous plot. Rather, the house will suit an architectural enthusiast seeking a unique period house to improve and sympathetically restore, whilst potentially adding accommodation based upon the original footprint.
The main accommodation comprises a porticoed entrance to the hallway, two large living rooms overlooking the gardens, a study, kitchen and guest cloakroom to the ground floor. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, and an attic space above.
A uniquely desirable place to live and to make your own, with superb road and rail connections to the City just 10 miles distant, the London airports and the Home Counties.
This property and plot offer great potential to a discerning buyer with the imagination and means to realise their vision.
A property and location that can be appreciated by all, but acquired by only one fortunate buyer. Please contact us to discuss your interest.
