For a slice of luxury in incredible surroundings look no further. Situated on Reigate Heath, this converted Victorian country home once owned by Baron J Arthur Rank is something of fairy tales. Overlooking the stunning countryside, you can enjoy a glass of wine on the private terrace whilst watching the breath-taking sunsets over the heath.
This ground floor apartment has been completely renovated by its current owners, their keen eye for detail has created something truly spectacular with the perfect combination of original character and contemporary design. Stepping into the entrance hall the theme of high ceilings, ornate coving and original parquet flooring set a precedent for how meticulously the features have been preserved throughout.
Ideal for a busy social life, the layout provides the perfect entertaining space. The bespoke kitchen has a custom-built central island that compliments the units effortlessly. No expense has been spared with the integrated appliances, the triple Miele oven will make cooking a delicious Christmas dinner a breeze and you can congregate around the island with family and friends enjoying the tranquil views over the communal grounds towards the heath.
All three double bedrooms are finished to the highest standard with high ceilings and contemporary cast iron radiators. Designed to be separated from the rest of the household, the hallway doors leading through can be closed to keep things peaceful. The master bedroom has large windows looking out over the hills, endless build-in wardrobes and a door leading directly onto the impressive covered terrace.
The main family bathroom is like something straight out of a boutique hotel and is sure to be the envy of your friends! The William Holland freestanding copper roll top bathtub and original Thomas Crapper toilet, alongside a large glass 3 sided walk-in shower and half height wood paneling to the walls, add another touch of elegance to this high quality family home.
"We have lovingly restored and updated our home to reflect modern day living with a contemporary style. We are lucky enough to spend time sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine or cup of coffee watching the magnificent sunsets over the heath. The absolute silence of the night with the clearest, darkest star lit skies and the bloom of the sunrise over the trees, make it a very special place and if you listen out, you can also hear the barn owls or occasional woodpecker at dawn. On a Sunday, wandering back from the Skimmington Castle pub after a Sunday roast - using the hidden path that takes you there in 5 minutes - to cosy up and light an open fire, finishes off a weekend perfectly!"
