    About this property

    • Grade II listed Russells House was originally built for the Dowager Countess of Earl of Essex. This elegant apartment forms a major part of the original 1714 Georgian period building. The house was built adjacent to Cassiobury Park, the seat of the Earl of Essex. Many notable people have lived at Russells House over the centuries including General Colville who served at the Battle of Waterloo, Maharajah of the Indian Estate of Baroda and the Mayor of London.

      As an ideal lock up and leave, the property is tucked away in the fountain courtyard of this prestigious development in Nascot Wood. Rarely can you find such a special home of immense character and style offering about 1,500 sq ft of stylish accommodation. The property has many period features such as high ceilings and sash windows and needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.

      The private extensive communal gardens undoubtedly are a great setting to this stunning Georgian building and are mainly laid to lawn featuring several 300 year old Lebanese cedar trees. At the top of the driveway is the main courtyard with a parking area for residents and there are two parking spaces for this home with direct access to the private fountain courtyard at the front of the apartment.
