It's not every day something like this comes on the market, but when it does it can be quite special. And this one is. It's certainly a different style of living to a mid-terrace house in the heart of suburbia! Not only do you get a spacious apartment, not only do you get to live in a period manor house, but you also get to live in what is probably the highest accommodation in Reigate!
This lovely apartment occupies the top floor of this converted manor house on the top of Reigate Hill, so could anyone claim to live higher in Reigate...?
I don't want to spoil your fun so i'll let you google for the history, but this magnificent period house was built in the latter part of the 19th century by wealthy George Taylor as his home. It was much later converted into separate apartments, all of them with great stately proportions. The house is steeped in history - in fact one of the apartments is also alleged to have access to a wartime underground tunnel...
It's actually quite tough to extol all the amazing benefits that come with this fabulous three bed apartment, but here are few:
Suitable for a singleton, small family or retiree ; would make a great country pied-à-terre ; living in part of a 19th century manor house ; on the 2nd floor with extensive far-reaching unencumbered views to the south facing front and the west facing side, so you get the warmth of the sun ; communal gardens to either look out over or wander in ; you can run out into open space in just minutes ; very near to Reigate Fort and all the history ; privacy - the house has its own drive so you won't get visitations from anyone not wanting to go there ; share of the freehold ; a landing of over 12 metres (you could use it as a bowling alley)! ; lots and lots of storage ; and it has its own garage too...!
This manor house is in an enviable semi-rural location next to main road networks, and yet between the affluent towns of Reigate and Kingswood. The Reigate junction of the M25 is nearby giving you easy access to the M25 for Heathrow or the M23 for Gatwick and the south coast
