A very convenient West London location. Road communications are served by the M4 (for the West End of London, Heathrow Airport and the National Motorway Network via the M25). There is a Mainline station at Southall (about 1 mile) and Underground (Piccadilly Line) at Osterley (about 1 and a half miles).

For shops, entertainment and town centre amenities, Ealing Broadway, Chiswick and Twickenham are all within easy reach.

Friar's Lawn is a classic Georgian residence of historic local importance. Each owner has carried on the efforts of each preceeding generation to preserve and cherish the priceless character and grace of Friar's Lawn. Whether looking South over Norwood Green, or to the rear over the landscaped grounds, all the large Georgian windows afford glorious views.

The Grade II listing has ensured the retention of a wealth of original architectural features, notably old pine joinery, high corniced ceilings, windows with shutters, and fireplaces. Modern amenities include gas fired central heating, well appointed bathrooms, and a well-equipped kitchen.

Standing in extensive, well tended landscaped gardens.

Walls and Roof
The roof has been stripped and re-clad with slates on vapour permeable membrane. The asphalt gutters have been replaced with new lead-lined gutters throughout. The roof timbers have received timber treatment by Peter Cox Property Services.

All window openings have been inspected, and the arches/lintels reinforced where necessary. The sash windows have been overhauled by Ventrolla Ltd, who have installed their perimeter sealing system.

Heating and Hot and Cold Water
A new heating and hot water system for the whole house has been installed, with condensing boiler and megaflow hot water heating cylinder located in the space under the stair on the lower ground floor.

In conjunction with the installation of new electrical services in the altered and extended areas of the house, the system has been generally re-wired and upgraded to current standards throughout.

The following systems have been installed:

  • A gate entry system with control panels at each floor level.
  • An electronic intruder alarm system in accordance with British Standards 4737, Parts 1, 3 and 4 1986. with door and window contacts, passive infra red movement censors, and personal attack buttons. The alarm is monitored by Redcare.
  • There are CCTV cameras with digital recording, which can be accessed on-line.
  • Automatic security lighting to front and rear.
  • Mains operated smoke detection system, and Chubb fire extinguishers.
The garage of 24’6 x 9' (7.49m x 2.74m) has been converted in a gymnasium.
