If the walls could talk! We are excited to showcase this stunning and iconic four bedroom detached home with three immaculate bathrooms. This property has an amazing history dating back to the late 1800?s; formerly a Benskins public house, the property has been a private home since 1957 and in the last few years, has been lovingly restored combining original features with a modern twist with high quality workmanship evident throughout the house. Thanks to its unique corner aspect and high ceilings, the property is literally bathed in natural light.
Overall there is an authentic and luxurious feel to the entire property - The North Star is ready to move straight into, so you can continue the wonderful history of this beautiful home. This fantastic property cannot be justly served by photos and virtual viewings; we highly recommend any potential buyer to move fast as homes such as this located on 'The Hill' rarely come to the market, a testament to the much loved community and unbeatable location.
Standout features are the imposing preserved panel doors of the impressive entrance hall and original oak Parquet flooring running through to the kitchen. Taking centre stage in the main reception room is the restored feature fire-place and timber frame windows with original etchings. There is a large modern kitchen ideal for hosting, with a bar-dining area as well as a living area which can be utilised in whichever way you choose. A private and peaceful courtyard is accessible from the utility room and sitting room.
A grand stair-case leads up to the light filled landing. Here we have an opulent master suite with walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite shower room with under-floor heating. There are three further large double bedrooms and the family bathroom has been tastefully updated and also has under-floor heating. Original oak flooring runs throughout the first floor.
Additional and expected features for this property are the utility room off the kitchen, downstairs guest cloak room, a garage that can be accessed from the courtyard and much sought after off street parking.
Harrow on the Hill is a special place to live, with a great sense of community with its long standing residents. There is even a local Trust which looks after the Hill protecting the community and areas of public interest. An historic village dating back to the 1300s, located only 30 minutes outside of Central London which gives it huge appeal. Surrounded by woodland, it has plenty of green space, golf courses, and Harrow School?s cricket grounds frame the conservation area. The North Star is perfectly situated on Crown Street, ideal for a London commute with both Metropolitan/Chiltern Line (Harrow on the Hill Station) and Piccadilly Line stations (South Harrow) within walking distance. Crown Street is 50 yards from the popular but quiet Castle pub as well as a number of independent coffee shops, bars and restaurants which line the high street. Waitrose is the nearest supermarket, and Harrow Town Centre offers two shopping centres and a cinema.
History: Set across 1948 sq. ft, The North Star is a former Benskins public house, dating back to the late 1800s, and is hence a landmark building steeped in rich history. A remarkable piece of London?s heritage, the deeds state that in World War II the government used the property as a doctor's surgery. The North Star has been a private residence since 1957, and the current owners have spent over 30 happy years in the property, under-going a big renovation from 2017 onwards.
