Augustus Lodge, Bulls Cross, Enfield
As well as the lodge itself, an outbuilding in the gardens, on a separate freehold offers brilliant potential for development.
The plans offer a fantastic opportunity to curate something out of the ordinary.
A home office for the present work-from-home culture?
Recording studio close to the M25 providing efficient access for the industry?
Separate Airbnb cottage, styled with an eco-conscious methodology could bring a steady income - the possibilities are endless.
High brick walls provide security, privacy as well as noise insulation from the road, as well as the grandeur of a lodge to view but not be overlooked by, provides the perfect balance.
The open space, private aspect and idyllic nature of the working fields surrounding the house make it completely private, which is practically unheard of within the M25.
Walking through the wrought-iron gate and hedgerow, the facade of the house still looks as it might have done over a hundred years ago. A neat garden path leads you onto a veranda, and through a thick oak door.
The plethora of original features in the house is striking, from cabinetry to cornicing, doors to floors.
To your left as you walk in, the sitting room has a fireplace and cool views of green on all sides. A second reception room is currently set up as a dining room-cum-office and opens into the kitchen, where you'll also find a spacious larder and separate loo by the back door.
A cavernous cupboard under the stairs leads up to a family bathroom. A traditional landing leads to three double bedrooms, all with leafy outlooks. The principle bedroom has a gorgeous 180° view of the fields, currently all lush and yellow.
Every room has a superb view of the gardens. It is a hidden enclave of period beauty in Greater London.
Opposite the house is an outbuilding, contained within the same freehold title, ripe for conversion. A home office, music studio, separate Airbnb cottage - the possibilities are endless. High brick walls provide security as well as noise insulation.
There is off-street private parking for several cars and there's a garage, which is presently used for storage (perfect for dry storage of a classic?).
Despite being so magnificently secluded, the M25 is only a five minute drive away - though you'd never suspect it - while the local train station connects to Liverpool Street and Seven Sisters to the south and to the north, it links up with Cheshunt station, where you can change for Stansted Airport.
All in all, this is a splendid house, which has great potential to be an amazing family home; truly a hidden gem.
