A rare opportunity to purchase a characterful, period property on the market for the first time in over 40 years. Whiteheads is set in a verdant landscape overlooking spectacular uninterrupted views over Greenbelt countryside through to London in the far distance.
Whiteheads comprises 4 bedrooms, a recently refurbished shaker style kitchen, a dining room with exposed beams and wooden floor, two further reception rooms, one of which has stunning views of rolling fields immediately behind the property. The house has been architecturally altered through the years but has retained its original charm. It is a rare gem being so close to direct transport to London whilst still enjoying the rural landscape with far reaching views.
You approach the house via a gate along a path through a mature and well-maintained garden to the front door. The hall has graceful stairs with an original mahogany banister leading up to a light filled gallery landing. On either side of the hall are two reception rooms. On your right is the sitting room with dual aspect windows one of which is a bay looking out on the old apple tree and front garden. It has an old fireplace in which a wood burner has been installed creating a wonderfully cosy atmosphere. On the other side of the hall is another reception/drawing room perfect for entertaining.
This too is dual aspect with double French doors leading to a paved area in the back garden where you may also relax. Down the hall is a shower room which is a well-proportioned room with two windows and a lovely stained-glass door, it is half tiled on the walls and Fired Earth tiles to the floor. To the right is the dining room which also has a door leading to a walled courtyard, where you can enjoy your morning coffee in seclusion under, climbing roses clematis and honeysuckle. In the dining room there is a skylight with exposed beams and wooden floor and another large sash window. You enter the kitchen which has a vaulted ceiling with beams and a quarry tiled floor with a gas fired AGA and convection hob. The kitchen is shaker style with granite work surfaces and butler sink. There are 2 skylights and two large sash wooden windows. There is a pantry/ utility room beyond with a door leading outside to the driveway and garage. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, three of which are good doubles. From the half landing to the left is a good single bedroom which would make a perfect study or home office or dressing room with beautiful views. Next is the family bathroom with marble tiles to the walls and Fired Earth tiles to the floor and a large sash window. It has a deep bath with shower attachment, washbasin WC and bidet. To the other side of the half landing is a double bedroom with dual aspect sash wooden windows. On the top landing there is a generous sized dual aspect bedroom and in the galleried hall another window. To the right is the principal bedroom, which is dual aspect and has wonderful views over the Greenbelt countryside. The garden is well maintained and stocked with mature plants, bulbs, shrubs, and trees. There is beech and some laurel hedging, fruit, and climbers. It is a delight to behold.
Additional Benefits: Most of the sash wooden windows were recently double glazed and all the doors have been replaced. The house has also recently been re-rendered. The loft attic would make a great loft conversion if additional space were required, subject to planning. The property is well set back from the Barnet Road and is accessed up a private drive of Homefields.
Location: The property is located near Barnet, a short drive away to Hadley Green and all the shops in Barnet High Street, including restaurants, coffee shops and main supermarkets (Waitrose). Transport links are High Barnet (underground) Cockfosters (Piccadilly) Hadley and New Barnet (overground) and Potters Bar station and easy access to the M25 There are local schools nearby including private schools.
