Get the best of both worlds - live in a contemporary home steeped in history!
6th Jun 2013
Location, location, location! It’s the most significant element when buying a home. And when you combine charming, quaint design with a historical setting the result is an incomparable property. Brookshill Cottage is precisely such a home.
Situated in an established Conservation Area located off Brookshill Drive, Harrow, Brookshill Cottage boasts an unparalleled location with a feeling of openness and a countryside atmosphere. Located on an elevated position, the space is characterised by lush fields and greenery, offering flawless panoramic views over Harrow and towards London.
Steeped in history, the area’s architectural character is rooted in agricultural buildings and Victorian-style properties.
Brookshill Cottages were developed in the early 18th century and were designed specifically to be the central home within the original farmstead. Much like the surrounding land, the layout has remained virtually unchanged since its inception. Farming has acted as the key function since that time until 1939 when the neighbouring farms were taken over by riding stables.
Brookshill Cottage itself is linked to the visually appealing architecture of the time. While the external elements of the home remain true to its historical origins, internally the entire house has been renovated to modern specifications without losing the personality of the original property.
Warm and welcoming, this charming semi-detached cottage comes complete with three reception rooms; an elegant entrance hall; downstairs cloakroom; open-plan lounge and dining room; generous kitchen and adjoining breakfast room – complete with built-in washing machine and dishwasher - and separate study; both of which lead out onto a generous manicured garden and outdoor area perfect for barbeques and get togethers.
With a warm, lively atmosphere, each space within the home is endowed with an abundance of light, and lends itself perfectly to entertaining.
Upstairs, this picturesque home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the main being en-suite and a further generous family bathroom.
Ample off street parking is available courtesy of the long drive and front garden.
The history of this home gives it added depth, making it interesting and unique. Its essential appeal lies in its atmosphere of tranquillity – located close to Stanmore and Hatch End, and a 12 minute train ride to Euston, it exudes country charm and effortless living while being located within a short distance from modern amenities, shops and restaurants.
This charming period cottage is priced at £725,000.
Preston Bennett will be holding an Open Day to view this property on Saturday 15 June from 11h00 – 12h00.
