Full description

Forming the upper part of a beautiful and painstakingly restored historic building, this spectacular and generously proportioned 1,400sq/ft apartment (with parking space) makes a lasting impression with a large Manhattan loft-style partially vaulted living area taking full advantage of a far-reaching horizon view and is located in the heart of the village Conservation Area. It also has a rented parking space nearby.

From the entrance at street level you step up to a wonderful space featuring reclaimed timbed flooring, cast iron columns and exposed brickwork which combine with many other design elements and materials to create a highly desirable and glamorous home. Originally a Temperance Hall built in 1861 with funds raised by St Mary's Church, the restoration has been completed to the most meticulous standard with rare craftsmanship evident throughout and a pallette of Farrow & Ball colours as a finishing touch.

A galleried mezzanine leads to the master bedroom and bathroom and overlooks the contemporary "Bulthaup" kitchen whilst the property has been entirely re-wired, re-plumbed, re-roofed and new timber windows installed which are hand-made to match the original profile. At the heart of the community for around 150 years, the property now has renewed purpose and absolutely must be viewed.

Harrow on the Hill is a very desirable area which is perhaps London’s forgotten village, combining the convenience of a fast commute to Central London with a wonderful centuries old atmosphere and delightful architecture protected by Conservation Area status. The historic High Street is in part dominated by the impressive buildings of Harrow School, from where many London landmarks are clearly visible.

A number of independent coffee bars, shops, pubs and restaurants mean there is little reason to venture away, but Harrow town centre at the foot of the Hill provides for every need with 2 covered shopping centres, a choice of major supermarkets and a multi-screen Vue Cinema. There are many excellent private, state and church schools (including St Anselms Catholic School close by) locally as well as parks, golf courses and open spaces to enjoy. Easy access to the major road network and all London airports plus a choice of Metropolitan and Chiltern Line stations make this an uncommonly well connected place and an excellent lifestyle choice.

Footnotes from the owner;
"The original building provided a coffee house on the ground floor and a large open area on the first floor so you could get "a hot bath for one penny, a hot meal for one penny and a bed for the night for one penny". During the recent renovation we found the original sign!

- The current open layout which was reinstated by stripping out several later partitions is true to the original.

- Many locals remember the building as a venue used for church meetings, parties, schoolroom. It has been at the heart of the community for over 150 years

- The whole of the old Temperance Hall has been subject to a painstaking refurbishment

- Notice the pair of 18th century walnut corbals "supporting the ridge beam

- Totally over specified insulation (15 cm/6 inches)

- Move in and enjoy the views!"
