This QUIRKY and UNIQUE property was fully RENOVATED during 2013-2015 by the current owners (along with the neighbouring property).
There is a grand existing barn door to the front of the house with glass main door inserts. Original features such as the brick walls and beams remain, and the open plan living gives it a bright and spacious feel yet can be made to feel cosy in the evenings.
On the ground floor, wooden flooring leads the way into the modern bathroom which has a stunning free-standing bath tub and walk-in shower, with white brick tiles and blue décor. Through to the rear, the master bedroom is very large with fitted wardrobes and space for a desk, handy if you work from home!
Up to the first floor, the open plan living area has exposed beams and light flooding the room. Decorated in a fresh white palette, there is a dining area as you reach the top of the stairs, leading through to a modern, integrated kitchen, with plush grey units and sleek black worktops. At the end of the room, Velux windows expose more day light and you can sit in the comfy ‘lounge’ area and catch up on your favourite TV shows. It’s the perfect entertaining space when friends and family are visiting as you can cook and chat at the same time.
Outside there is a small, yet ideal garden to enjoy BBQ ‘s in the summer and night cap’s in the winter. There is allocated parking for one vehicle at the rear of the property and you are minutes away from local convenience shops, pubs and restaurants.
Redhill town centre is a short walk down the road, with a wide variety of shops, eateries and Redhill station, which has regular services into London, Gatwick and Brighton.
Reigate High Street is also approximately a 20-minute walk or 5-minute drive away, with independent shops and a good choice of restaurants, plus the Everyman cinema where you can catch up on the latest Hollywood movies.
"We love the quirky character of the house - the beams and the openness of upstairs to the high ceilings downstairs, along with the original brick wall. We retained the original barn doors and renovated them so they could be closed if we wanted them to.
We kept the outside character of the house with half of the barn style door in situ to the rear, as it would have originally been an entrance to the stable area, with a top floor door still in situ to the front of the house. We believe our Mews House was the original stable block with the neighbouring unit being the stable store! We love being so close to Reigate & Redhill, which has a direct train line to London and Brighton.
There are some great pubs and restaurants nearby with the parade of shops having most conveniences you could need! The allotments next door make for a lovely view out the Velux windows."
