Waysmeet is a fine Arts & Crafts style 6 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached house with beautiful gardens and garaging, built circa 1923 by an architect for his own use. Situated in a prime position on the exclusive private South Hill Estate on Harrow on the Hill, this desirable property measures circa 2,500sq/ft and contains many good timber and other architectural features including an oak-panelled dining room, hand-made brickwork, original tiling to fireplaces and unique joinery. Well designed additions were made in the 1970's to create the generous form seen today, and the property is situated on an especially pleasant part of the Estate, standing behind a wide frontage of over 100 feet.
The property is entered through a welcoming entrance hall with substantial feature staircase, a large L-shaped triple aspect open-plan living room with views of the garden, a formal dining room with oak-panelling, and a comfortable kitchen/breakfast room which was re-fitted in 2015. Further there is a guest cloakroom and utility room with access to the double-length garage. The upper 2 floors contain 6 bedrooms, each with their own unique aspect and character, as well as a bathroom on each floor. Additionally the house has gas-fired central heating fitted and has been very well maintained by the present long-term owner.
Outside the gardens are a particular feature of the property which has driveway parking and a large mature rear garden. This is a true delight through the seasons with a high degree of seclusion, and given the extensions added to both neighbouring properties it is thought likely that a similar addition could be made here, subject to obtaining planning consent as the property lies within a Conservation Area.
Orley Farm Road is part of the private South Hill Estate on Harrow on the Hill, an exclusive residential area with many green spaces and all the attractions of village life yet is 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 instantly fell in love with the house and its unique, original features and the garden.This little oasis has been the perfect family home and has been full of happy times. We’ll be taking away memories of long, lazy summer lunches in the garden with the children playing hide and seek and cricket for hours on end. The location has been perfect for an easy commute to London and school just a couple of minutes walk up the road. We’ve been blessed with wonderful neighbours, a beautiful road to live in and spoilt with the village charm of ‘the Hill’ just a short stroll away.’
