6 Bedroom House For Sale
Harrington Lodge was originally built as a hunting lodge for Richmond Park and the surrounding areas in circa 1712. There were later additions we believe in 1935 just before WW2, to improve and extend the house, by the then owner who was an architect.
The structure of the house has largely remained unchanged since then, but it has been well maintained, modernised and improved by the current owners for nearly 60 years, whilst serving as a marvellous family home.
On arriving at Harrington Lodge you are immediately impressed with this very special house. There are manicured front gardens, box sash windows showing off the character and period of the property, as well as a fine doorcase, with bowed pediment on pilasters.
Moving into the house, there is an entrance hallway, with a staircase leading to the first floor. An appealing study falls to the right of the hallway, which leads to the elegant drawing room with a feature fireplace, French doors and high ceilings. The majestic dining room follows with it's array of windows and doors and an abundance of natural light. It is here that your eye is drawn to the magnificent garden and a truly unique plot.
A further reception room, overlooking the front follows, as well as a fully fitted kitchen, flower room and two cloakrooms.
The first floor provides wonderful accommodation, with six bedrooms laid out across this floor, creating excellent lateral living.
A truly spectacular feature of this property is the magical garden that has been lovingly maintained and cared for by the current owners, creating a mature and attractive area to rest, relax and enjoy. There is an array of mature trees, flowers, plants and shrubs, as well as a large lawned area that has been witness to many parties and celebrations over the years. The garden has been featured numerous times in 'Open Gardens' as prime example, raising money for charity. To the front there is private off street parking for a number of cars and a garage for covered parking and storage.
The first floor provides wonderful accommodation, with six bedrooms laid out across this floor, creating excellent lateral living. The principal bedroom suite is positioned at one end of the house with a dressing area, fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. Five further bedrooms follow, three that overlook the front of the house, and two to the rear, that have views to the garden and Richmond Park beyond. There are two bathrooms to accompany these bedrooms and a kitchenette.
