A highly desirable 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached house, ideally situated within an exclusive Private Road on Harrow on the Hill, close to Orley Farm Preparatory School. Built in the "Arts & Crafts" style and measuring almost 3,000sq/ft, it has been considerably extended and enhanced by the present owners to successfully combine contemporary Scandinavian design with many original period features. This has created a beautiful and luxurious family home with an inviting interior which is airy and light, using wooden pale oak floors, a soft colour palette and many natural textures.
Designed to take advantage of the splendid rear garden which backs on to the school playing fields, all the principal rooms enjoy a garden view and from upstairs there is a wonderful vista across fields to the woodland beyond. Presented in immaculate condition, the accommodation includes some excellent open-plan living spaces, including at the heart of the house an impressive new fitted kitchen/dining room with island unit and bi-folding doors to the garden. This space also flows through to the splendid 29' living room and is visually connected by the natural timber flooring.
With luxury high quality brands and fittings used throughout the house, the ground floor also has a further large room with en-suite wet room, making it ideal for use as a ground floor bedroom, family room or for home-working. There is also a guest cloakroom and functional large utility room, plus a modern security system.
Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms and 2 superbly fitted luxury bathrooms, whilst other features include retention of the traditional leaded-style windows and exposed timber beams, painted floorboards and gas-fired central heating. Outside is a deep and wide frontage with an integral double garage and gravelled driveway parking, whilst to the rear the large landscaped garden is a particular feature of the house with its generous timber-decked terrace, extensive lawns and summer house.
South Hill Avenue is part of a Private Estate on Harrow on the Hill, an exclusive residential area with many green spaces and all the attractions of village life yet also an easy commute to central London. Part of a Conservation Area, this property is situated usefully close to Orley Farm Preparatory School for Boys & Girls, as well as other highly regarded faith, state and private schools including John Lyon which is now Co-Ed.
The historic High Street is in part dominated by the impressive buildings of Harrow School, from where many London landmarks are clearly visible. A number of independent coffee shops, cocktail bars and pub restaurants mean there is little reason to venture away, but a Waitrose supermarket and Harrow town centre at the foot of the Hill provides for every practical need with 2 covered shopping centres, other major supermarkets and a multi-screen Vue Cinema. Easy access to the major road network and all London airports plus a choice of Metropolitan/Chiltern Line (Harrow on the Hill) and Piccadilly Line (South Harrow/Sudbury Hill) stations help make this an uncommonly well connected place and an excellent lifestyle choice.

Notes from the Owner;
We love the advantages of so much space, quiet, greenery a stone's throw from London, also the strong sense of community on our private road and the South-facing garden bordering school playing fields. We completed an extensive renovation in 2019 to create our perfect family home, and we hope the next buyers will love it as much as we do.
