'Unique' and 'rare' are overused words in the industry however in the instance of Elm House, they couldn't be closer to the truth. Properties of this description, on such a large plot are almost impossible to find in Wantstead. It was a joy to first visit this stunning house which is the epitome of Edwardian architecture at its best.
