THE MILLION pound apartments for sale at Harefield Place in Ickenham are surrounded by eight and a half acres of green belt.

There are 25 properties in total: nine in the original Grade II listed Georgian mansion and 16 in a new building.

In a previous era the property was a gentleman’s country residence. It’s in a private road.

The Drive in Ickenham is regarded as one of the best addresses in Middlesex.

Today’s owners enjoy facilities which include an heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub, gym, sauna and an all weather outdoor tennis court.

Apartments in the Georgian mansion have the long sash windows and high ceilings, typical features of the classic architecture of.that era.

Those in the recently-built neighbouring building are more open plan. The contemporary interiors are in keeping with tastes in the space age.

Each flat has either a terrace or a balcony.

Every apartment regardless of which building it is in has a handmade kitchen with Siemens appliances and Quooker boiling water tap.

The specification also includes engineered wood floor floors and video entry.

The original house was built for the landed gentry between 1785 and 1786.

Prior to being divided up to create high end pads for those in the million pound price bracket the house had been used as a hospital and as offices.

The institutional features have been stripped out, the grounds have been returned to the style that reflects the property’s status as a private estate and all’s well with the world.

Apartments on upmarket developments have considerable appeal for buyers, though some with pets can be put off by the fear their much loved companion might not be welcomed.

The agents for the development at the Gerrards Cross office of Strutt & Parker assure us that Harefield Place is pet friendly. Pedigree or mongrel, their family ancestry won’t be questioned as long as their manners pass muster.
