An impressive detached house in a sought-after neighbourhood in Ealing. This unique property was designed in 1888 by renowned local architect Leonard Shuffrey and has since achieved Grade-ii Listed status on account of its remarkable features, including Dutch gables and the magnificent cedar tree in the front garden.
The property benefits from a carriage-style driveway, in addition to its garage, providing ample private parking space for multiple cars. The rear of the house features an expansive 160-foot garden, which includes an outbuilding and a conservatory for ample leisure and storage space.
The house has largely retained its original layout, and the ground floor is arranged around a welcoming entrance hall, which leads to the dining room and two living rooms, all three of which feature French windows which open out into the garden. The ground floor also hosts the kitchen, which has access to a connected utility room and pantry area, and also offers access to the garden.
The first floor features a family bathroom, study room, a smaller double bedroom and three well-proportioned double bedrooms, two of which benefit from built-in wardrobes. The top level would have originally housed Thorncote's servants, and consists of three additional double bedrooms, all of which feature fitted wardrobes or access to eaves storage, and two additional family bathrooms.
Thorncote was designed in 1888 by local architect Leonard Shuffrey, and stands out among the other houses of Edgehill Road. This quiet tree-lined street is located between Ealing Broadway, West Ealing and the award-winning Pitshanger Lane high street. Residents are able to access an outstanding selection of independent and high-street shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants alongside other amenities including libraries, post offices, pharmacies and gyms. This family-friendly area is also close to several parks, including Pitshanger Park, Scotch Common and Cleveland Park, and well-regarded schools including Notting Hill and Ealing High School, Avenue House School, Durston House and Harvington Preparatory Schools, North Ealing Primary School, and St Benedict's School. Ealing Broadway and West Ealing stations provide commuters with excellent transport links towards the city centre, and both stations will soon be supplemented by the new Crossrail service. Residents can also access several local bus routes close by, and motorists are within easy reach of the A40.
