Features and description
The property is discreetly approached off Kingston Vale to a shared drive but leads up to a set of remote control wooden gates, onto a large resin bound private forecourt. The charm of this outstanding cottage is immediately apparent, and here ‘first impressions most certainly count’. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and offer a variety of perennials, bushes and climbers.
Harewood Cottage is set within mature grounds of approx 0.18 of an acre with the garden backing onto the Royal Wall of Richmond Park and with a legal 5 meter ‘deer leap’ boundary, protected from development. The house has an approximate gross internal area of approximately 3,051ft2 (283m2), with a South and North West facing mature garden. No expense has been spared in making Harewood Cottage special, including high quality double glazed wooden windows and doors, bespoke stone window cills, reinforced roof and new roofing.
On entering the galleried reception hall, one is engulfed in a wealth of natural daylight, a soft rising stairwell with white balustrade to the first floor, wood strip flooring and a guest cloakroom concealed under the stairs.
Two glazed doors lead to the more formal sitting room with double aspect views of the private forecourt and an array of built in bookshelves and base cupboards as well as a central fireplace feature, and a continuation of the wood flooring with under floor heating. Two further glazed doors from the hall lead into the vast kitchen/dining/family room, with triple aspect views and sky lights to the dining area and side, as well as bi-folding doors connecting to the garden and the large rear terrace.
The kitchen also has underfloor heating throughout, and offers a wide selection of high quality wall and base units, with a central island cladded with marble and beautifully mitred edges, incorporating a sink with mixer taps, wine cooler, dishwasher to one side and breakfast bar and book shelf to the other.
The large wall units incorporate a selection of siemens appliances comprising a micro wave oven, main oven, plate warmer, fridge/freezer and both an induction as well as a gas hob, with brick pattern tiled splash back. The kitchen leads to a laundry room and large store room/plant room with further access to the outside.
The first floor is bathed in light and enjoys uninterrupted views towards the city, given its elevated position on Kingston Hill, with a balustrade gallery over the hall.
This level is home to four double bedrooms and three bathrooms with a walk-in dressing to the principal bedroom and double aspect windows, a Juliet balcony overlooking the park and vaulted ceilings. The bathrooms are modern with wet showers and chrome fitments to the quality sanitary ware. No expense has been spared throughout the refurbishment of this fine family home.
Bedroom two has a natural brick face to one wall and French doors to the balcony with wrought iron railings.
Bedroom three, also with a vaulted ceiling, has French doors to a private terrace that leads to a secluded section of the garden which continues onto the main garden. Steps lead up to a galleried area, perfect as a playroom/study. All the bathrooms are fully tiled and benefit from chrome heated towel rails, and ample storage cupboards or drawers below the wash hand basins. Every bedroom has a lovely view.<br/><br/>The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, but well stocked with mature fruit trees, bushes, trees and perennials. The garden enjoys the sun throughout the day as it travels from east to west and has been re-landscaped to embrace the historical wall as a back drop.
