Standing proudly on London Road at the summit of Harrow on the Hill, this historic 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached house comes to the market for the first time since 1961. Built circa 1840 and well preserved by a succession of long-term owners, it features an unusually large 160' rear garden which provides great potential for extension, subject to obtaining planning consent. A desirable and architecturally interesting property with considerable period charm, it is Locally Listed in recognition of its architectural importance and positioned at what was once the entrance to a large private estate. This has since been turned in to a reservoir, affording the house great privacy to the rear.
Now ready for sympathetic updating and offered with no onward chain, the sale of Park Lodge presents a wonderful opportunity to a discerning buyer, with many possibilities including re-modelling and perhaps extending significantly. The house is notable for having retained so many period features, from fireplaces and original internal window shutters to the attractive stone mullioned windows. Upon entering through the Gothic-style front door, you are welcomed by the spacious hallway and well-proportioned living rooms both front and rear, with a kitchen, pantry and wet room completing the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and a bathroom plus access to attic space, whilst outside is a deep front garden with driveway parking for 2 cars.
Harrow on the Hill offers a great sense of community and tranquility compared to most of London yet there are both Metropolitan/Chiltern Line (Harrow on the Hill) and Piccadilly Line stations (Sudbury Hill/South Harrow) within walking distance for a fast commute to the City. The area is well known for its highly regarded educational facilities including the famous Harrow School and other private, church and state schools including St Anselm's Catholic Primary School, Orley Farm Preparatory School and John Lyon School (now co-ed), all within walking distance.
With a choice of upmarket coffee shops, cocktail bars and restaurants nearby there is little reason to venture away, but practical needs are taken care of by a nearby Waitrose supermarket and the comprehensive Harrow town centre amenities. There are also open spaces for recreation along with cultural and leisure facilities including Harrow School theatre, golf courses and a Vue Cinema.
