Aylmer Close, Stanmore, Greater London - Instruction to Sell £2,450,000

Designed by architect Edward Samuel in 1963, who brought his brand of Modernist style architecture to various parts of London, this beautifully designed Grade ll listed family home is located in Aylmer Close, part of the private and enchanting Aylmer Drive Estate. Positioned between Stanmore Hill and the open expanse of Bentley Priory, the property showcases Samuel’s unique style, which for 1963 was very much ahead of its time. This incredible location allows residents to benefit from the numerous amenities that Stanmore has to offer, being within a short drive to Stanmore Underground station (Jubilee Line). Throughout this incredible home Samuel’s design focuses on bringing in natural light using a combination of large windows and French doors, with an open-plan design.

1 Aylmer Close is predominantly laid out over a single floor with part basement, and is set in the most idyllic position overlooking and straddling a shared private lake. Partially raised on stilts the elevated frontage has a private terrace with a utilitarian basement situated below. There was a previous planning permission and listed building consent, which has now lapsed, to extend the basement to create further living accommodation. The lower level currently provides various storage areas, a boiler room and a double garage.

Situated on a standalone plot the property is surrounded by mature and beautifully manicured gardens and is set behind a driveway, which accesses the underground double garage. On entering this distinct home you are immediately enticed by the feeling of light, volume and space. The open plan reception hall connects through to a reception/dining area. The family television room is also open plan and leads onto the home office, which is positioned directly over the lake and offers an incredible panorama. This unique home provides a spectacular principal bedroom suite incorporating en suite bathroom and dressing room, four double bedroom pods and a second bedroom suite all of which overlook the gardens and lake, a family bathroom and a guest WC.
