An iconic Grade II listed property, standing in a secluded position on a superb landscaped plot overlooking a lake with waterfall – a nature lover’s paradise!
Designed by the heralded Edward Samuel in 1963, this iconic and unique family home with its c.110ft frontage, comprises nearly 3,500 sq ft and has outstanding potential. In the past there has even been listed building consent granted to extend the basement, which although now lapsed, could be re-submitted.
Like the great Bauer houses of the Art Deco era, Samuel’s design was very much ahead of its time – however, today these homes are enjoying a real renaissance.
So what makes this property special? Partially raised upon stilts, the slightly elevated frontage has its own terrace with basement beneath, currently providing utilities and valuable underground parking. The front and rear elevations are supported by reinforced concrete beams with a brick and timber-framed structure above, clad in broad horizontal timber (of approximately railway sleeper width) which is stained matt black. The roof has raised mono-pitched roof-lights at intervals, shedding light at certain points throughout the interior.
This is a stylish example of a modern house of architectural quality which retains many original interior features.
Aylmer Close is situated on the west side of Stanmore Hill and forms part of the exclusive Aylward Estate (complete with its own private security firm at the entrance). It is equidistant to all the amenities of Stanmore Town Centre and Bushey High Street and easily accessible to Stanmore Underground Station, Stanmore Country Park and the principal A roads in and out of Central London. Some of the finest state and private schools in the south east of the country are also close at hand.
