New to the market is Pinewood House, an historic property in Harrow-on-the-Hill in London, with panoramic views out across the city. The property was built in the 19th century by the Lutyens family, who were instrumental in developing the Arts and Crafts movement, and although the property is not built in this style, it is wonderfully designed.

The property was also part of old Harrovian Anthony Trollope-s estate at one time, adding further to its unique heritage.

The house is extremely private – a long circular driveway through private woodland leads to the property, which has a drawing/music room, sitting room, dining room, study, luxury limed oak fitted kitchen, a splendid master bedroom suite and six further bedrooms.

Harrow-on-the-Hill is a fantastic location which offers peace and quiet, but also easy connections to central London, by the Piccadilly and Metropolitan Underground lines.

Local schooling is also excellent with St George’s First and Middle School, and of course Harrow School itself.

Time Gerrard from Preston Bennet said:: ‘Pinewood House is a classic – a fine 19th century ‘country’ home, completely private and surrounded by greenery and trees, yet within easy reach of many amenities and excellent transport links to the City and West End.’

The guide price is £2.5m. For further information, please contact Preston Bennet on + 44 (0)208 954 0044 or visit www.prestonbennet.co.uk.
