Property description

Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise’s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property’s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £275,000, please contact Cubitt & West.


Property description


This apartment is situated in a retirement complex of apartments, bungalows and maisonettes for the over 60's. There is a communal lounge area as well as it being warden controlled and having an excellent security system. There is also a guest bedroom suite for when friends or relatives are visiting (at an additional cost).

This particular property is located on the ground floor and is arguably in one of the best positions as it is set to the rear of the development with lovely views over the communal gardens as well as having its own secluded terrace.

As soon as you walk through the front door you will notice how spacious the apartment is, there are two genuine double bedrooms with the main bedroom having built-in wardrobes as well as an ensuite shower room. The main feature of this property is the lovely lounge which has French doors with direct access onto the private terrace.

The accommodation benefits from electric radiators as well as UPVC double glazing throughout.

Outside there are manicured communal gardens as well as off road parking with visitor spaces.

The position is superb as it is a short walk away from the mainline train station plus Reigate town centre with an excellent mix of cafes, restaurants, High Street shops and local churches as well as a thriving community. It is also only a short car journey away from the M25 and Gatwick Airport.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.
