A 17th-century luxury property that is listed, just a short walk from Hampsted Heath in north London, is up for sale – and it could be yours for £ 4 million.

The 17-bed townhouse, dating from the 17th century, was once home to John Ireton, London’s Lord Mayor, and was split in two during the 18th century.

Lyndale House, last sold in 2000 for £ 1.2 million, is a Queen Anne-style home on a terrace known as The Bank, located across Highgate Hill.

The property has a large dining room and its own wine cellar is being maintained sold by Sotheby’s International Realty describing the listed Grade II * 3,166 square meters house which offers an ‘abundance of period features’ and ‘versatile entertaining spaces, catering for modern family life.’

But despite its magnificent façade and immaculate interiors of the property, which are spread over four floors, potential buyers may be put off by its location – on a busy road.

The list says: ‘The kitchen in the lower plot leads to an intimate, yet formal dining room with access to a wine cellar.

‘Three more receptions with an abundance of period features and charm offer versatile entertaining spaces that cater to modern family life.’

The reception area leads out to a private patio and into a mature 100-foot wildlife garden, which boasts a wooden hut for children tucked away at the bottom of the garden.

The luxury property also has two marble bathrooms and two guest wardrobes.

Sotheby’s says the property is also within easy reach of Highgate Village, Waterlow Park, Hampstead Heath and Kenwood. It is also a short walk from Highgate Subway Station and the Northern Line.

The property is located on Highgate Hill, which is a busy road often used by commuters as a rat race to avoid the nearby A1 and the junction with the A406.

In areas like Primrose Hill, a similar property could be worth more than double the £ 4 million price tag.

Other areas like Wimbledon, Fulham, Chelsea and Kensington would also have more expensive houses.

The property has five bedrooms, each of them decorated in a luxurious style with wooden floors
