Hamptons International offers to the market this magnificent family home, a gem of Georgian architecture. Situated outside of central London, it stands in 3 acres of private gardens encompassed by the grounds of the National Trust owned Osterley Park. A truly unique opportunity to acquire a beautiful, country style house positioned within easy commute of central London.
This Grade II listed house itself, steeped in fascinating history, was built for the steward of the Osterley Park Estate and was reputedly partly designed by one of the period’s most important and influential architects, Robert Adam whose work was deemed to be of such importance that he was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey. At the time the Old Farmhouse was built in 1760 the Osterley Park estate was under ownership of the proprietors of Britain’s oldest bank, Child & Co with the house remaining in the family’s private tenure for many years passing through the family’s heirs, the Earls of Jersey until eventually being given to The National Trust in 1949.
The Old Farmhouse has been restored and is decorated in Georgian style bringing to life its beautiful Georgian features. A pastoral retreat from the fast pace of London life the house has been well loved by the current owners since 1999.
The house itself offers flexible living accommodation, downstairs there is a large principal reception room with a beautiful curved bay, a stunning period fireplace and original sash windows and shutters. The ceiling has been restored using original Adam mouldings. This room leads into a well appointed study and then into a formal dining room which can also be accessed via the main hallway. The kitchen offers space for a table and chairs and is fitted in a style sympathetic to the rest of the property it also provides additional access onto the rear lawn.
On the first floor to the back of the house you will find a beautiful master suite occupying the space within the curved bay and leading onto a well appointed bathroom. There are a further two double bedrooms and family sized bathroom. There are stairs leading from the spacious bright landing onto the second floor of the house. Here you will find a large bedroom space within the curved bay complete with terrace and panoramic views of the wider park and extending miles beyond over north-west London. There are two further double bedrooms and another family size bathroom. All bedrooms enjoy beautiful views of the gardens.
This property offers truly remarkable accommodation and really must be seen to be fully appreciated. For those looking for a private ‘country’ estate within London and the wider area this is incomparable to all other offerings.
