Lyndale House, a magnificent Grade II* Listed family home has launched to the market with Dexters. Nestled amongst historic properties in the heart of Highgate Village, the Queen Anne period property is presented in immaculate decorative condition with beautifully preserved original details and classic interior design throughout. On sale for £4,250,000 with Dexters.

Lyndale House once formed a single residence with neighbouring Ireton House in the 17th century, before being divided into two residences in 1730, with parts of the garden wall dating back to the 1600s. The family home is constructed in red brick with segmental brick arches and sash windows, with a separate Listing for the drawing room ceiling, and carefully preserved panelling, staircase and window shutters throughout.

The property’s neighbours include Ireton House, linked to John Ireton, Lord Mayor of London; Cromwell House, built for Baronet Richard Sprignell and one of only two Grade I Listed buildings in Harringay; and Lauderdale House opposite, a Tudor house set in 29 acres with connections to King Charles II and Samuel Pepys. Lyndale House forms part of ‘The Bank’ terrace on Highgate Hill, moments from the green open space of Waterlow Park.

Records show Richard Sprignell purchased the land for Cromwell House from vintner George Crowther in 1605, with an older cottage on the land eventually becoming the pair of properties Lyndale and Ireton. The Bank terrace has been home to many notable residents over the past centuries, including Lord Mayors of London, leading Parliamentarians, wealthy merchants, painters, and poets.

Lyndale House is set over five floors, providing 3,166 sq. ft. of living space, with a large garden and brick pergola extending 207 ft to the rear. There are five bedrooms and three reception rooms, each finished in classic style with panelling and delicate cornicing.

The ground floor provides a reception room and a sitting room, each with historic fireplaces, one of which open onto the courtyard patio and a Pergola leading to the garden. On the first floor is the elegant drawing room with an individually Listed ornate ceiling and large sash windows looking towards Waterlow Park. There is also a guest bedroom on this floor looking towards the garden and a marble-clad family bathroom with a roll top bath tub.

The upper floors provide the Principal bedroom and three further guest bedrooms, providing space for a large family or the option to use a bedroom as a separate study or home office if required.

On the lower ground floor is the kitchen, wine cellar and dining room with original beam across the ceiling. The outside patio, York stone path and Pergola lead to the 109 ft wildlife garden which features a children’s treehouse and summer house, ideal for a family to enjoy.

Mark Sumray of Dexters Highgate office says: “Lyndale House is a fantastic example of Queen Anne architecture with carefully preserved features and classic styling throughout, the current owners having created an elegant family home. The brick Pergola leading to a wildlife garden offers exceptional outside space for a family to enjoy. Located in a very desirable area, nestled amongst historic neighbours, we anticipate strong demand for this property.”

Highgate village is a sought-after area of North London, with a collection of independent shops, restaurants cafes and bars for residents to enjoy. Lauderdale House is now an arts and education centre with café, with events including art exhibitions and open-air theatre performances. Lyndale House is a short walk from the local underground station for Northern Line connections, with the area also offering many award-winning schools.

Lyndale House is on sale for £4,250,000 with Dexters. For further information please contact 020 854 58584 or visit www.dexters.co.uk.
