Standing on an imposing plot, this breath-taking six bedroom Edwardian family residence dates back to 1905 and in more recent times, has been sympathetically extended by previous and current owners and now expertly blends both contemporary and traditional styles.
Approached via a gated, sweeping carriage driveway with off-street parking for numerous cars (with a garage), ‘High Carrs’ has certainly been skilfully enhanced, with modern design elements although without compromising the integrity of the original enchanting features.
The ground floor offers incredible entertaining space via a large 24ft x 18ft main reception, with fabulous floor to ceiling glass sliding doors leading to an elevated terrace, a stunning fireplace flanked by stained glass windows, five further spacious reception rooms all of which offer unique and cosy spaces showcasing original features, large dual aspect bespoke ‘Chalon’ style kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and a traditional walk-in larder cupboard for all kitchen essentials!
The first floor boasts a grand and indulgent master suite with private terrace, a further three bedrooms (with en suite bathrooms) and additional laundry room whilst the top floor has a double bedroom suite with study, shower room and additional smaller bedroom.
The lower ground floor benefits from a large cinema room, bespoke fitted wine cellar, gym and direct access via French windows to the beautifully landscaped and mature, rear garden which is wonderfully secluded.
Barnet Lane is considered one of Elstree’s most sought-after locations, with easy access to central London and also within easy reach are some of the finest schools in Hertfordshire, including Haberdashers’ for both boys and girls. The new and enhanced Elstree Studios is within easy reach as are Elstree Aerodrome and the fabulous Aldenham Country Park, as well as swift links to M25 and M1 motorways.
