Tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of Reigate High Street, this spacious ground floor one-bedroom apartment with period features is ideal for those looking for their first home, for busy professionals or investors. Within walking distance of Reigate and Redhill stations, where you can be in central London within half an hour.
The living room is a bright and airy space – the large window offers pretty views of the garden and brings in natural light all year round while the high ceiling gives an even more open feel. You can comfortably fit in a sofa suite along with a small dining table to wine and dine friends, catching up on a Friday night.
Down the hall you will find the recently refurbished kitchen, with gloss grey cupboards, solid oak work surfaces and teal metro tiles to add a splash of colour. You can experiment with recipes and admire the views from the window as you sip on your coffee at the beginning of the day.
The master bedroom is sizeable, with three large built-in wardrobes offering you a huge amount of storage. The room has a relaxing feel with space for a large bed, and for additional furnishings such as a dressing table or home office. Another large period window keeps the room nice and bright.
Next to this is a sleek, newly renovated bathroom, finished to a high standard - its tiled finish makes cleaning painless and you can soak in the tub with a good book when you’ve got time to spare an evening. Or if you’re in a rush you can hop under the rainfall shower.
Outside there is a communal garden - you can dine al-fresco or soak up the sun during the during the summer months. Parking is a cinch, with a residential car park or easy parking on the street – unusual for this part of town.
Reigate Town is full of independent and unique shops, along with well known restaurants – perfect for a Sunday morning brunch. The Everyman Cinema offers a luxury movie experience with some delicious treats and a selection of blockbuster hits.
"I have loved living in this property over the last five years. It has all the bright, open spaces of a period property with none of the drawbacks (modern central heating keeps the flat cosy in winter, and I have renovated the kitchen and bathroom). The garden benefits from direct sunlight all day, pretty much all year round which has been great for barbecues. The location has been perfect – on the one hand there is a little known wood across the road providing easy access to nature, and on the other hand it has been easy to get to London for work or to see friends. There are also nearby supermarkets, while proximity to Lesbourne Road and Reigate town centre means it is easy to roll out of bed for coffee, brunch or a pub lunch. The neighbours in the block are lovely and my cat has made friends with most of them. As a close, the road is nice and quiet. My only reason for leaving is to be closer to family – but I hope this means someone else gets to love this property as much as I have."
