    About this property

    • The property is a handsome Neo Georgian detached house located in the prestigious location of Mount Park Road, on Harrow on the Hill. Of particular note with this elegant family home are the light, views and gardens.

      Mount Park Road is a gated private road within the Mount Park Estate Conservation Area, which has a semi rural character with mature trees and hedging screening large, mostly Victorian and Edwardian detached houses.

      The property sits in the centre of a about a 1/3 acre plot surrounded by its gardens and mature yew hedging. The gardens of the property are beautiful, landscaped by acclaimed award winning garden designer, Bunny Guinness. The house is clad with a mature wisteria and roses and of note is the large south facing terrace at the front of the house providing a wonderful outdoor entertaining space. There are ample spaces for al fresco dining and recreation. The bespoke hardwood Orangery built by Vale Glasshouses, provides an additional space for dining and gardening.

      The house is approached through a central entrance porch with double doors into the reception hall, which has parquet flooring and staircase that turns past a large sash window. The principal rooms are accessed from this hallway, as well as the guest w.c. The sitting room is dual aspect with an Adam style fireplace and French doors to the rear garden. There is a study with windows to the front and a family room of the same size on the other side of the entrance porch, offering a pleasing symmetry. The dining room has parquet flooring, window to front aspect and leads through to the kitchen by Mark Wilkinson painted cream, with a French limestone floor, double Belfast sink and granite work surfaces. From the kitchen there is a utility room and also a doorway to a side passageway imaginatively painted to resemble a gothic corridor leading into the rear garden.

      The first floor benefits from a wide bright landing and has access to a large loft space that offers scope for conversion into additional accommodation, subject to the usual consents. The master bedroom is a large room with fitted wardrobes and windows to both front and rear. There is a good size dressing room and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom is a triple aspect room with wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bathrooms are by Fired Earth with limestone floors.

      Vehicular access is through double, five bar gates to a large parking area that leads to an attached double garage. The gardens to the front are formal with topiary and planted in the English country style. The gardens to the rear contain ornamental trees, vegetable beds, lawn and topiary and additional terrace, seating areas with a charming children's tree house nestling to the rear.
