Handsome Highgate home with presence and heritage.
Savills are proud to offer for sale, Merton House on Merton Lane. The property has been in the same family ownership since 1996 and was fully renovated and extended in 2015. It sits proud at the top of the hill enjoying sweeping views down Merton Lane, towards Parliament Hill and the surrounding area with Hampstead Heath and The Highgate Ponds 0.1 mile walk away. It provides a home where the work/life balance is achieved through easy and fast accessibility for work in the City and West End (approx. 4 miles) and the setting of the wooded slopes of Highgate. The top-class schools of Highgate and Hampstead are within easy reach.
On entering the property, one will quickly notice how much natural light floods in, due to clever use of roof lights, as well as the south-facing position of the property and the fact that most rooms within the house have windows on at least two sides.
The property further benefits from large front and rear gardens, which all encompass the house, all behind security gates and a driveway which offers off-street parking for 4/5 cars. Our clients completed in 2015 an extensive renovation programme which included various extensions of the existing property as well as a comprehensive refurbishment of the entire property. The result is a fantastic family home with both elegant and flexible reception space and large family kitchen, home office and 6 bedrooms, all surrounded by the green spaces which the gardens offer. A south-facing garden room provides sunlight space for an office, studio or a gym or simply for relaxation. The second floor could be used for staff accommodation.
