No. 36 is a charming cottage enviably positioned on top of the hill in North Reigate. Once the games room to the Victorian home next door, the accommodation extends to around 1,500 sq ft internally, housing three bedrooms and generous living quarters. This Cottage benefits from balcony off the master bedroom, oak windows, inglenook fireplaces and deep stone walls.
You approach this cottage down a long driveway off Raglan road. A small hallway acts as an informal boot room and general disrobing area. To the left is the large living space with the kitchen directly ahead. Honed and hand-chipped parquet flooring run underfoot throughout.
A soft seating area is set within the bay windows – perfect for whiling away lazy afternoons with a good book. The generous sitting room is at the rear of the house, with a handsome Woodburner at its centre. Exposed oak beams and spiral iron staircase create a sense of comfort, grounding the space, while an amazing quality of light pervades the whole house – perhaps surprising amounts, for a home of such traditional proportions.
On the ground floor you benefit from a large double bedroom and en-suite, ideal for visiting guests. The main bedroom is on the first floor, decorated in neutral tones and built in cabinetry. A dressing area, and nursery is positioned off this room aswell as the bathroom. Gorgeous double doors lead out to the balcony with south facing views across Reigate.
Its such a lovely house to live in. The garden and views are amazing – with the sun on the garden from start to the end of the day, overlooking amazing sunsets and far reaching views. It’s also so convienient – being so close to the M25 – yet you could be in the middle of the country and a lovely easy walk into Reigate town centre or the train station – or nearby schools.
The kitchen looks over the garden which is lovely. Its so peaceful – yet a very friendly house. Quirky yes – but that’s the way I love it. Lovely and bright – with windows in the roof and all around the lounge and the most amazing views from the upstairs bedroom. All in all – a lovely place to live – which I never got tired of in the 25 years I lived there!
