Overall Description

This is a substantial and well presented family home that was significantly extended into the basement by a previous owner to provide a total of around 4,000 square feet of living accommodation over four floors - it really is much larger than you would think looking at it from the road. The extra space afforded by the basement conversion transforms the house, especially the large family room with its own kitchen, separate from the one upstairs, and large glazed panels with multiple doors leading out to the patio and garden - the ideal place to entertain or just spend time with family and friends, especially during the summer months. Also downstairs is a study, playroom/gym, utility and cloakroom, while on the ground floor is the kitchen/breakfast room, large dining room (both of which have access to the raised terrace overlooking the garden), sitting room, cloakroom and garage. On the top two floors are five bedrooms, the master with an en-suite, family bathroom and another cloakroom. The house has a raised terrace with space for table and chairs to the rear and steps down to the good-sized garden with large patio, lawn and flowerbeds. A path leads around the side to the front where there is a drive with off-street parking.

Location

This lovely large family home sits on one of the most desirable roads in the area, only a five to ten minute walk from Oakleigh Park Station which has regular services to Finsbury Park (13 minutes) and Moorgate (27 minutes) and a five minute drive from Totteridge and Whetstone Underground Station on the Northern Line. There are good schools in the local area including the Brookhill Nursey School, St Marys C of E Primary School and the Lyonsdown School, East Barnet School, Queen Elizabeths Girls School and Mill Hill County High School. There are excellent local shops and other amenities in both New Barnet and Whetstone and plenty of green open spaces nearby including the Brook Farm Open Space, Oak Hill Park and the Barnet/King George V Playing Fields, making it an ideal location for a growing family.
