Elm Cottage is a spacious and contemporary country property that offers a slice of rural life on the London borders, close to Barnet and Hadley Wood, and within easy commuting distance of the City and West End. Located just three miles from Hadley Wood station, the house sits towards one end of a substantial approx. 1/3 acre plot, which is bordered on one side by a small no-through road and the other three by open countryside. The garden and rooms have unobstructed rural views suggestive of somewhere far removed from the capital.

This exceptional home combines an ultra-modern aesthetic with lovely, flexible indoor and outdoor spaces. With over 2,700 sq ft of space over two floors, and an additional studio/gym, double garage, and large garden, the property is suited to a variety of lifestyles.

The ground floor has a generous amount of living and entertaining space, with three reception rooms and a spacious open-plan kitchen, all accessed via a central hall. The hub of the house is the large inter-connected space formed by the kitchen and snug/TV room. With stylish Crittall-style glazed sliding doors between the two rooms, further floor-to-ceiling glazing framing views of the garden and fields beyond, and double glazed doors onto a south-facing paved terrace this is a wonderfully light space. The kitchen is bespoke, with a stunning feature wall of cabinetry and appliances, and a cleverly concealed door to a utility/boot room with direct access to the rear garden. The large central island has a sink, hob, and bar dining area.

A second large reception room to the rear has east-facing windows with garden views and south-facing bi-fold glazed doors onto a second sunny south-facing terrace, again with lovely rural views. The third reception room is also dual aspect and perfect for afternoon sun, with windows to the west and south.

The main attraction on the first floor is the stunning main bedroom suite which comprises a bedroom over 27’ long with a Juliet balcony and views over the garden and fields, and a luxurious hotel-style en-suite bathroom, with a freestanding bath and shower, accessed via a secret door hidden amongst the extensive built-in wardrobes. Also on this floor are a second bedroom with an ensuite, the third and fourth bedrooms, and a family bathroom. All rooms on this floor are accessed via a large central landing.

The property has several landscaped spaces outside, with a gravelled and gated front driveway with space to park several cars, wraparound paved and shingle terrace, substantial lawn with mature borders, and a large decked area between the garage and gym/studio at the end of the garden. These outdoor spaces are all low-maintenance with lighting systems, so ideal for relaxation or entertaining.

This hidden hideaway sits in a desirable rural location just over a mile north of the suburban market town of Barnet and close to Potters Bar; the town centre amenities of both are less than ten minutes away by car, as are a wide selection of private and state schools including Dame Alice Owen, nominated one of the top state schools in the country by the Sunday Times. Rail and road connections are excellent, with regular trains from Hadley Wood to Moorgate (36 minutes) and King’s Cross (30 minutes) and M25 access just 1.5 miles away. This is the perfect property for someone seeking a rural lifestyle close to thriving local communities and with easy access to the capital.
