A Life Of Luxury Is Within Your Grasp…
27th Jun 2013
Rising majestically above Stanmore Hill, Stanmore Hall has been meticulously transformed into a luxury development of 23 sumptuous apartments which have been carefully restored to retain the charm of the original building.
In its authentic state, the rambling Victorian mansion was built of rag stone and freestone and was completed with gables, towers, parapets and ornate chimneys in a Tudor Gothic style – a truly fanciful building in a fairy-tale setting.
The Hall is rich in history – it was initially built in 1847 for John Rhodes on a site which was earlier owned by the Duke of Chandos. It was later passed onto Robert Hollond - a lawyer, politician and aeronaut – and was renovated extensively in 1885 by Knox D’Arcy, a gold and oil tycoon. D’Arcy recruited William Morris – a renowned textile designer, writer and artist - to give his residence an extravagant interior.
His work throughout Stanmore Hall included the grand staircase, various elaborate tapestries, fireplaces, incredibly detailed mosaic floors, and decorated ceilings – all of which feature Morris’s distinctive swirls of true-to-life perennials.
Stanmore Hall’s greatest appeal lies in the fact that it remains true to its original state. While the Grade II-listed mansion house has been converted into a number of desirable apartments, this has been done so in the most tasteful manner, offering residents the rare opportunity to combine contemporary comfort and convenience with the history and grandeur of a country estate.
And with the Hall’s largest apartment having recently been put on the market, the rare opportunity to embrace this lifestyle as your own could become a reality.
This beautifully presented 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom second floor apartment is the ultimate in grand living. At 2,414 sq ft, it boasts a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room and a stunning southerly facing drawing room, all of which are accessed via an elegant entrance hall.
The superb property is bathed in natural light courtesy of its oversized windows which overlook the extensive landscaped communal gardens which provide far-reaching views to London and beyond.
The apartment is functional as well as visually appealing and assures exclusivity and privacy. It has two parking spaces (one of which is located underground), a basement storage room, and ample visitors parking. Moreover, residents are able to benefit from round-the-clock security, a full time concierge and a dedicated leisure complex which includes a gymnasium, heated indoor swimming pool and separate plunge pool/Jacuzzi.
Perfectly situated in the conservation area of Little Stanmore, Stanmore Common, with its lush greenbelt and woodland, and Stanmore Broadway - with its extensive range of shopping facilities and restaurants – are within a short distance of the Hall. Recommended schools, places of worship and numerous sports clubs are also within easy reach.
Convenient links to Central London are available via Stanmore Station’s Jubilee Line (36 minutes to Bond Street); and there is also easy access to the M1 and M25 motorways.
This exquisite apartment is available for £1,295,000. To arrange a viewing or for further information, please contact Lee Martin or Steven Schiller on 020 8954 0060; e-mail email@example.com or visit www.prestonbennett.co.uk
