6th Feb 2013
‘Dormers’ in Priory Drive, just off Stanmore Hill, is a substantial detached residence in Stanmore’s most exclusive private road. It occupies a favoured south-west facing plot of just over 1.5 acres – the largest plot in the road - and offers well-planned, comfortable family accommodation of c. 5,000 sq.ft. It is priced at £ 5,250,000.
Approached via an impressive sweeping carriage driveway, ‘Dormers’ welcomes visitors via the main reception hall with its feature staircase. This leads to the double aspect 34ft long drawing room with views over the side and mature 191ft. rear garden.
This flows into the 24ft. dining room and then to a family room – making it a great space for entertaining. The bespoke, spacious ‘Mark Wilkinson’ kitchen/breakfast room has a host of integrated appliances and a walk-in pantry. A study, games room/office, gym, shower room, utility room and guest cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor galleried landing leads to a master bedroom suite (with dressing room & bathroom) with a private terrace; guest suite with en-suite bathroom; 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a separate au-pair/nanny flat above the garage. The rear garden also has a heated swimming pool, plant room and pool house.
‘Arrol House’ in Glanleam Road is exceptionally well-located for Stanmore Underground station, the village centre and local places of worship. It is priced at £ 1,400,000.
This superb detached Art-Deco house was built in 1934 by architect, Geoffrey Arrol Simpson, for himself– together with a few adjacent houses in this quiet and pleasant road. Behind its unique front door, is spacious accommodation of c. 3,200 sq.ft. in fabulous and tasteful decorative order, all within a neutral colour pallette.
The inter-linked reception rooms are very well proportioned and provide an informal and relaxed ambience in which to entertain. An indoor garden adds to its unique atmosphere. The stunning bespoke kitchen/dining room, with its impressive vaulted glazed ceiling, has been thoughtfully designed and is a major feature of the house.
With great views of the secluded c.130 ft delightful rear garden and its summer house, the master bedroom suite has an abundance of stylish wardrobes in the dressing area and an en-suite contemporary bathroom. There are 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The front driveway leads to a garage, unusually with room for 3 cars and there is a utility area at the rear.
