Harrow on the Hill is an affluent area of North West London and part of the London Borough of Harrow. The name refers to Harrow Hill, 408ft (124m). The earliest recorded use of the name is found in 1398 as Harrowe atte Hille. It is presumed that Harrow on the Hill was named Herges in the Saxon era, translated to mean 'church upon the hill'. Herges is recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1086 for William I of England (William the Conqueror).
Commissioned by Lanfranc, Archbishop of Canterbury and completed in 1094, St. Mary's Church is often the icon of the hill located at the apex, which also has impressive views towards London and can be seen from miles.
Oakhurst Heights was for many years part of The Purcell School of Music, a prestigious specialist school of music and the most expensive private school in the country which has HRH The Prince of Wales as their Patron. The Headmaster has since commented that "The Oak Room in the main building, Oakhurst, was a gem, a perfect setting for chamber music." Oakhurst Heights was home to Purcell School from 1975 to 1997 and in that time their Royal Patron has visited Oakhurst on official visits.
With over 6,200 sq ft of living space over four floors and a most superb 22ft square roof terrace with views towards London, private gardens, set back beyond two sets of gates, this property offers superb accommodation.
