"Launch Event" on Saturday 2nd March | Please Call for your Appointment Time | Built in typically opulent London style, this fine example of a late Victorian townhouse is situated amongst other much admired homes near the summit of the Hill. At this time wealthy families built beautiful homes to impress with high-ceilinged rooms, marble fireplaces, elaborately moulded cornices and other craftsman-made details, lovingly preserved here through many generations.
Approached through tall gates to a generous cobbled driveway, you climb wide stone steps and use the original bell-pull before entering through a grand front door. A substantial 3,000sq/ft property with accommodation over 4 floors, the present owners employed a specialist building firm to restore and improve many elements of this fabulous house, successfully combining a generous contemporary ground floor living space with the historic feel of floors above.
Beautifully presented, the house now has a stylish fully-integrated Poggenpohl kitchen/breakfast room with Miele appliances which is open-plan to the central dining room plus a large family living area on the ground floor. This level features underfloor heating and a custom-made floor full height Crittall window, creating a fantastic and very comfortable place for a busy modern family to be. Further to this is a spacious modern utility room, guest W.C. and boiler room.
Above are 2 further reception rooms, both highly original with beautiful timber flooring, tall windows bringing light and views, original internal shutters and a Juliet Balcony to the front. The upper floors feature 5 generous bedrooms, including a fabulous master suite with dressing room and large en-suite bathroom. There are far-reaching views from this high vantage point and the house has gas-fired central heating.
Outside is a sizable garden which is landscaped and beautifully planted making it ideal for entertaining with large paved terrace and feature lawn. To the front is a wide paved driveway, entered between tall metal gates and providing parking for up to 4 vehicles. Altogether this is a rare chance to acquire a fabulous period house within the exclusive Harrow on the Hill Conservation Area.
The village is certainly an 'oasis' only 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.
