A well presented two double bedroom, two bathroom apartment, extending to 1357 sq ft, set within the main building of Victoria Court. 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.
The accomodation includes a generous reception hallway with ample storage, a WC, a fitted kitchen/breakfast room, sitting/dining room and two double bedrooms, the master with a range of built in wardrobes an ensuite bathroom, the second with an ensuite shower room. The apartment has high ceilings giving it a very spacious feel.
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 30-40 minutes). Earlswood Station is 0.7 miles walk away (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. There are a number of good schools, both state and independent, for all ages. To name a couple, the sought after senior state school, St Bede's in Redhill, Reigate Grammar School and the highly regarded preparatory school The Hawthorns is located just outside Redhill in Bletchingley.
To the front of the main building are beautiful communal grounds with a pond and a vast lawn area. There is a superb walkway leading up to the main house which is flanked both sides by magnificent listed Redwoods. The apartment also benefits from two allocated parking spaces.
