Property description

On the market for the first time in over 75 years, 'Frognal End' is a magnificent unmodernised double-fronted detached, Victorian house, discretely located at the end of a long gated driveway on a 0.419 acre plot.

Discretely located at the end of a long gated private driveway, tucked away in the corner of Frognal Gardens between Holly Walk, Frognal and Mount Vernon, this impressive home was originally built in 1892 for the novelist and antiquary Sir Walter Besant, for whom there is a plaque. In addition, Lord Pentland Governor of Madras, occupied the house in the 1920's and subsequently from the 1940's, the Labour leader Hugh Gaitskell, to whom a second plaque refers.

Comprising almost 6000 square feet (556 sq. M.) the property is arranged predominantly over three floors, occupying an elevated site approaching half an acre. The extensive gardens encompass the house on three sides offering an abundance of outside space and in addition there is off street parking for numerous vehicles.
The property offers the opportunity for a discerning family to acquire this rare and exquisite home, which could be restored to its original state as a single dwelling, or alternatively, there is the possibility that the existing property could be replaced with a new bespoke home, subject to the usual local authority consents.

Frognal Gardens is a charming crescent with an eclectic mix of properties, a premier location betwixt Frognal and Church Row offering a delightfully rural feel, but located only a short walk from The Village.
