Breathtaking Brae House

7th Apr 2016

Situated in one of Stanmore’s most sought-after locations, Brae House could be considered the perfect family home. Boasting exemplary design, this impressive detached residence has been perfectly conceptualised for family living.

If rumours are to be believed, Brae House has a rich history. It is said that the sprawling home was commissioned by Alexander Korda, a prolific Hungarian-born British film producer and director, for Merle Oberon, a celebrated 30s actress who is renowned for her performance in Wuthering Heights.

To this day Brae House remains a home that would be suited to those who have a flair for the dramatic. On the market for the first time in over thirty years, this magnificent detached residence is set back from the road and accessed via a high wall fitted with electric gates. At 5,266 sq. ft. it features exceptional entertaining space on the ground floor in the form of three reception rooms, two of which lead onto the rear terrace and lush garden via French doors. The lounge in particular is a gracious space which is perfectly suited to entertaining with views to the gardens on three sides.

The first floor is home to an elegant principal suite with a spacious dressing room and en-suite bathroom. This room features a balcony which overlooks the rear garden. A further bedroom suite with an en-suite bathroom, two additional double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a large study and a family bathroom are all located on this floor.

The impressive design flows seamlessly to the outdoors where the garden has been sympathetically landscaped to provide a visually striking and practical space which is naturally screened from the adjoining properties. The garden features an outdoor swimming pool with separate changing facilities, as well as a detached games house.
There is also a double garage for two large cars and further parking available on the large drive.

Brae House is prominently situated on Stanmore Hill allowing for easy access into the town centre which features a variety of shops and an abundance of restaurants. Transport links are easily accessible with Stanmore underground station offering regular trains into London via the Jubilee line.
The M1 motorway at junction 4 is about three miles away and connects with the M25 and the main motorway network. Heathrow Airport is within 15 miles.

As an area Stanmore is perfectly suited to families as it offers easy access to both state and private schools including the renowned North London Collegiate and The Haberdashers School. It also caters for various social and sporting pursuits.

This property is available for £3,250,000.
