This is one of our Country Houses
In a favoured position within the ever popular town of Reigate and close to Wray Common, a handsome detached residence of character dating from the late Victorian/early Edwardian period. Constructed in 1901, the house displays many architectural features typical of the period including exteriors of red brick and painted part render, pitched tiled roof with tall chimneys and a distinctive front veranda. The present owners have carried out a well thought out programme of extension and refurbishment during the past few years, thoughtfully combining period detailing with highly contemporary styling, which has resulted in a wonderful family home with modern, open plan living spaces. The accommodation is laid out over three floors - windows are large, with the majority being double glazed multi paned units, whilst flooring treatments include tiles by Fired Earth, oak floor boards and carpet. Several rooms have been combined to create a marvellous free flowing, open plan kitchen/dining/living space with French doors to the Family Room and out to the terrace and under floor heating. Kitchen cabinetry is by Stoneham – who hold the Queen’s Royal warrant – with Corian work surfaces, four integrated ovens by the Australian company, Fisher & Paykel, a gas hob and refrigeration. Opening out from the kitchen area is an inspired addition to the property, a glazed living room with oak floors, a suspended wood burning stove and floor to ceiling sliding doors on two sides, which truly allow for the rear garden and terrace to become part of the interiors. Other reception areas include a sitting room and the atmospheric library which has wooden floors, fitted book shelves and French doors to the garden.
The six bedrooms are arranged over the upper two levels and include a particularly spacious principal suite which incorporates a fully fitted dressing room and an en-suite bathroom with contemporary style sanitary ware and French doors opening out to a Juliet balcony.
The property is situated within a highly regarded road which lies approximately 1.1 miles from Reigate town centre yet with delightful walks through Wray Common only a few yards away. Reigate is a vibrant and thriving community with excellent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants as well as the open spaces and sports facilities of Priory Park and Reigate Heath. The area is particularly renowned for an excellent choice in schooling at both primary and Choir secondary level in the state and primary sectors including Reigate Grammar School, Micklefield School, St.Bedes Comprehensive School, Reigate Priory Junior School and Dunotter.
The property is set well back and approached over a gravelled driveway leading to a parking and turning area in front of the house and the detached garaging. Gardens to the front and rear have herbaceous borders with colourful spring bulbs and perennials as well as level lawns, mature trees and hedging. To the rear is a large terrace of stone tiles adjoining the house with steps down to the lawn, a fine, enclosed kitchen garden with espaliered fruit trees, a soft fruit frame, greenhouse by Gabrielle Ash and a shed. Exterior lighting allows for evening entertaining.
