Ahead of the Curve
36 Linksway, Northwood, Middlesex HA6 2XB
A family home with curve appeal, this new 7 bedroom, 6 bathroom property has a number of spectacular contoured interiors. Located on the premier road in tranquil Northwood, this Octagon house is perfect for families looking to upsize and move away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still need to remain well placed for speedy access into central London.
Passing through the regal stone column portico, one cannot fail to be impressed by the double height, marble floored entrance hallway, where a majestic curved polished oak staircase with pewter balustrades is caressed by rounded walls, providing the perfect dramatic backdrop for a glass chandelier to cascade from the top of the house.
Moving into the inner hallway, which has a cloakroom and passenger lift serving all three floors, one can access the large drawing room, formal dining room and bespoke, open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room. The fully fitted kitchen has smart, contrasting espresso and taupe units, a large breakfast island, integrated Miele appliances, a Gaggenau wine fridge and the essential Quooker tap, serving instant boiling, hot or cold water. Above the family room, a stunning glazed roof lantern floods the space with natural light.
Also on the ground floor is a pre-wired cinema room with built-in surround sound speakers and media cupboard, a study and, accessed through the kitchen/breakfast/family room, a utility room and integral double garage.
Upstairs on the first floor, there are four sumptuous bedrooms, all with en-suites, including the master, which boasts a walk-in dressing room, bathroom with walnut cabinetry, marble clad bath, Aqua TV and monsoon shower, and separate WC. Also on this floor is a handy laundry/airing room and a self-contained studio with adjoining bathroom, accessed from a separate staircase, so perfect staff accommodation or granny flat.
On the first floor landing, a stunning double height mirrored feature wall frames the polished oak staircase leading up to the second floor, which offers more lofty ceiling height accommodation; a home office, two further bedrooms with en-suites, and a generous storage room.
Externally the property has a large front carriage driveway with central lawned area. Whilst to the rear is a wonderful space for entertaining and relaxation, with a full width curved terrace leading to the large, totally secluded South West backing garden. In usual Octagon style, the entire 0.5 acre plot at Linksway has been fully landscaped and lavishly stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and trees, enhancing the original planting retained in the grounds.
Northwood is a charming, leafy commuter town with fast access into the capital. The town centre has a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants, both independent and mainstream, including a Waitrose. From Northwood Underground station, the Metropolitan line takes passengers to central London in 35 minutes (Baker Street) and the City in 42 minutes (Moorgate). By road, Northwood is easily connected to the M1 and M25, with fast access to the M40, M4 and Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports. Both state and private schooling in the area is excellent, and popular choices include Merchant Taylors’ School and The Royal Masonic School for Girls.
