A rare residential and equestrian estate uniquely situated within a London postcode
Highwood Lodge Farm Estate is an exceptional residential, amenity, and equestrian estate remarkably positioned just 9 miles north of Central London. This estate offers the unique combination of country living within a London postcode. It features a superb unlisted manor house interior designed as a country house, surrounded by formal gardens and accessed through a private tree-lined drive. In addition, the estate comprises 5 cottages and flats, an indoor swimming pool, a pool house, and a tennis court.
An avenue of Lime trees line an impressive driveway that sweeps up from the south, from Highwood Hill and passing through the estate parkland and formal gardens. The charming unlisted principal house sits in an elevated position within mature gardens, providing a beautiful setting. Constructed of brick rendered under slate roofs, Highwood Lodge is a substantial residence spanning 8,127 sq ft. It offers wonderful family accommodation across four floors, including a staff flat.
The landscaped gardens at Highwood Lodge provides a wonderful backdrop to the house. Stone steps descend from the front terrace and connect the house to the formal gardens below. These south east facing gardens feature a paved walkway through an avenue of olive trees, adjacent meticulously crafted box topiary with a central fountain. A raised pond feeds into a central stepped canal pond, flanked by intricately sculpted topiary and expansive lawns. The gardens benefit from an irrigation system, are flood lit and there is extensive CCTV together with sophisticated alarm system.
The garden gently slopes from the house towards two sizable ponds, teeming with diverse birdlife. The top pond feeds into the lower pond which features a raised walkway over it. Within the gardens, there is a productive fruit and vegetable garden, designed as a cart-wheel, boasting apricot, peach, and pear trees, as well as multiple greenhouses, potting sheds and a tree house.
The impressive equestrian facilities include 14 loose boxes, accommodation for grooms, a horse-walker, six furlong gallops, a cross-country course, a polo field, and an Olympic-size outdoor arena suitable for dressage, show jumping, and polo. The estate encompasses 79 acres of pastureland and 7 acres of woodland, in total extending to 103 acres.
