Nest Seekers International are proud to present this iconic and chain-free 4 bedroom detached property situated in the heart of Harrow on the Hill - a historic and tranquil conservation area just 13 miles from Central London. Home to the prestigious Harrow School whose notable alumni includes Winston Churchill and Benedict Cumberbatch, Harrow on the Hill has all the qualities of a country village, but within very easy reach of the city and Heathrow Airport. 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. The building's original features have been restored and enhanced using the finest materials and immaculate workmanship for luxurious living. With uncompromising quality, the property harmoniously combines modern and traditional aesthetics to preserve a historical setting with a contemporary twist. As you step inside you will be charmed by a generously spacious home, with warmly intimate areas for entertaining. A light-filled ground floor features a grand entry hall leading to a formal sitting room, cloakroom, and 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. Sensitively refurbished to reflect its character, you will notice a number of restored original details, including oak parquet flooring, preserved panelled doors, window etchings, the original imposing fireplace and mantel, and many other architectural details. A stand-out feature is the copper North Star, a bespoke commission, branding the front of the property to emulate the original star which was removed in the 60’s. The property combines the glory of high ceilings with large timber frame windows, which together with the unique corner aspect of the property, quite literally floods the house in spectacular natural light. Immaculate neutral walls throughout provide further opportunities to put your own stamp on it. A generously proportioned first floor has a light and bright landing, a well appointed bathroom with underfloor heating, three bedrooms, and a master suite which includes a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with a heated floor also. This unique property also benefits from a garage which of course in these times, has superb potential to be a separate home office space. The North Star is ready to move straight into, so you can continue the wonderful history of this special property. A home that cannot be justly served by photos and virtual viewings, I highly recommend you to move fast as homes on the Hill do not go on the market often, a testament to the much loved community and unbeatable location. PARKING A garage and driveway parking with one allocated space and 1 visitor space. Please note; neighbouring homes own 2 spaces within the gravel driveway.

Despite feeling like the tranquil countryside, you get the best of both worlds with stunning views of Canary Wharf and the BT Tower from its highest viewpoint. Harrow on the Hill is surrounded by woodland and 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. Metropolitan Line to Baker Street - 18 minutes Chiltern Line to Marylebone - 16 minutes Heathrow Airport - 8.5 miles Central London - 13 miles COMMUNITY 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.
