A beautifully presented one bedroom apartment, set within the main building of Victoria Court. The apartment is positioned at the front of the building with the accommodation accessed via the rear of the building by a communal entrance which provides access to the private entrance hall and includes a very spacious Southerly-facing sitting room with extensive views and lovely high ceilings. The fitted kitchen includes numerous high quality integrated appliances. The master bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with stunning ceiling heights and views of the surrounding park.
The complex is considered one of the most stunning listed buildings in the area, built circa 1853 and converted into apartments in 2000. The builder was John Jay of London Wall, whose varied work included substantial railway construction contracts, rebuilding the Houses of Parliament after the 1833 fire and smaller architect-designed projects such as the Abney Park Chapel and Trinity Independent Chapel. The building was entirely financed by public subscription and Queen Victoria subscribed 250 guineas in the name of Edward Prince of Wales, who became a life member. He laid the foundation stone in June 1853 and opened the building. There is private access to the gymnasium and swimming pool. There is also a communal library which overlooks the Great Hall, boasting Victorian Hammer beamed ceiling along with a beautifully restored Victorian pipe organ.
On the edge of the North Downs it provides a prime location for the London visitor offering peace and serenity yet with quick and easy access to the capital (a direct line into Victoria from Redhill takes just 25 minutes). Earlswood Station is within a 10 minute walk (direct to London Bridge and London Victoria). Buses to Redhill and Reigate run through the park and Gatwick airport is only 5 miles distant. The town centre at Reigate offers a diverse selection of boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants, whilst more extensive shops can be found in the local town centre of Redhill.
