Stanmore is a suburb which is rich in history - a fact that is evident when one reviews the variety of properties throughout the area. Conveniently situated, it offers residents the best of both worlds; in essence country living with quick, easy access to the capital.
Stanmore Hill specifically is one of the suburbs most desired areas. At 152 metres above sea level, it is one of the highest points in London, with many of its properties having the advantage of stunning views across the city and the surrounding countryside.
One such property is a period residence situated midway up the hill. This charming home was built in the 18th century and was originally used to service the Abercorn Arms coach house. With its diverse background, and having evolved over the years, there is evidence that the residence has also served as offices for a carriage company and a water house, amongst others.
Having escaped listing, the property now serves as a charming residence. With a Victorian frontage, this detached home features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, one large reception room, a study, utility room, a kitchen/breakfast room, and secluded courtyard garden. At approximately 2,739 sq. ft., the property retains a number of original features including the Victorian staircase, main wooden structural beams, solid oak flooring, and exposed brickwork in certain rooms.
Additional features include strategically placed skylights which allow an abundance of natural light to be dispersed throughout, while a balcony off the central reception room provides gorgeous views.
Having been updated with modern twists, the home manages to retain its original charm while being both quirky and unique. Featuring an abundance of hidden storage, it is well positioned to serve as a family home as there is potential to convert the two sizeable loft rooms into an additional upstairs living or bedroom area (subject to Planning Permission).
Situated in the tranquil suburb of Stanmore, it benefits from excellent road and rail transport links to London via Stanmore station (a journey to Bond Street takes 32 minutes) and easy access to the motorway network.
As an area Stanmore boasts an abundance of greenery, charming commons and acres of Green Belt. It is one of North West London’s most desirable areas due to its boutique cafes, shopping facilities, and location to prominent state and private schools which include Haberdashers’ Aske’s, North London Collegiate, St. Margaret’s, and Stanmore College.
This property is available for £749,950
