AN ELEGANT AND SUPERBLY PRESENTED LATE GEORGIAN DETACHED FAMILY HOME SET ON A DELIGHTFUL PLOT Set on a beautifully landscaped south facing plot approaching 0.8 acres is this elegant and superbly presented six bedroom detached family home. Steeped in history, and having formerly been the home of the first Town Clerk of Reigate, this Grade II listed villa has been respectfully improved by the current owners with an evident attention to detail, to create a charming home boasting some 3,639 sq ft of well-proportioned accommodation arranged over four floors (excluding garage). Dating from the 1800s with an 1820s addition, the property offers a wealth of period features in the high ceilings, cornice and architrave details, exposed wooden flooring and attractive fireplaces, blending perfectly with contemporary touches. Colourful floor tiles in the entrance porch and a traditional bell pull welcome the visitor with the ground floor offering a versatile layout ideally combining both open plan and more formal reception rooms. The kitchen/ breakfast room with Aga and traditional brick surround and delightful wisteria framed views to the garden, has slate flooring and a central island with breakfast bar overhang. There is a seating area adjacent to double doors leading to the garden with log burner and decorative fireplace. Two further reception rooms each benefit from floor to ceiling windows, Georgian shutters and feature fireplaces. A study and WC can also be found on this floor. The spacious lower ground floor offers a superb space, currently in use as a games room, utility room and wine cellar with direct garden access. On the first floor are four good size bedrooms, served by a generously sized ensuite shower room and family bathroom. The second floor offers a further two bedrooms and good size contemporary style shower room. To the front is parking and turning for numerous vehicles as well as a detached garage with storage into the eaves. The stunning south facing landscaped rear garden has been thoughtfully designed incorporating peaceful seating areas and both formal and informal sections including a pagoda and patio area to the rear and conservatory adjacent to the property. Lighting further enhances the garden by night. Views beyond are over ancient woodland. In all the plot extends to approx. 0.8 acres. The vendors have advised that they can comfortably walk to the station in around 12 minutes.
