In a private position on the exclusive gated Mount Park Estate, The Coach House is a unique detached property which has been considerably improved and extended to create an interesting and spacious home with very generous ground floor accommodation. Originally the Coach House for a large property called Penketh, this is the only original building that remains from the original development of Mount Park Road in the 1880's. It has since been extended twice, in 1969 and 1982, with many of the original features preserved including the high ceilings of the downstairs rooms, a legacy of its former use as a stables and coach garage.
Superbly presented and offered for sale chain-free, the house has delightful gardens to 3 sides. These are mature, secluded and beautifully maintained and the plot size may may offer potential to further enlarge the property, subject to obtaining planning consent. Upon entering you are immediately struck by the generous living spaces and high ceilings throughout the ground floor, which include a double-aspect living room with garden views, a recently fitted kitchen/breakfast room, formal dining room and a further large space ideal for use as a home office or family/TV room with a mezzanine storage level above.
Upstairs are 3 bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms, and additionally there is gas-fired central heating, off street parking for 2 cars and the possibility to purchase separately a further small parcel of land opposite which contains a garage. On the market for the first time since the 1950's, an early viewing of this alluring property is recommended.
Harrow on the Hill is a very desirable area which is perhaps London’s forgotten village, combining the convenience of a fast commute to Central London with a wonderful centuries old atmosphere and delightful architecture protected by Conservation Area status. The historic High Street is in part dominated by the impressive buildings of Harrow School, from where many London landmarks are clearly visible.
Orley Farm Preparatory School is a short walk from this property, with other highly regarded schools including John Lyon (now Co-ed) nearby. 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 need with 2 covered shopping centres, other major supermarkets and a multi-screen Vue Cinema.
There are also many parks, golf courses and open spaces to enjoy in the area, plus easy access to the major road network and all London airports and a choice of Metropolitan/Chiltern Line (Harrow on the Hill) and Piccadilly Line (South Harrow/Sudbury Hill) stations, altogether making this an uncommonly well connected place and an excellent lifestyle choice.
