Property Description

Key features


Full description

Povey Cross House is a breath taking period home which has been meticulously refurbished throughout by the current owners and represents a stunning family idyll. The original house dates back to the 16th century, with later additions only adding to the character of this property. Approached via the gated entrance, parking is plentiful with a new addition of a detached timber double garage. The grounds extend to approximately 1.7 acres and are simply stunning. With beautifully designed formal gardens, sun terrace, vegetable garden, and lawns leading to the secret garden, they have been cared for by the current owners to magnificent effect. The views beyond the grounds are uninterrupted across adjoining fields. The interior sings with original features, the exposed beams and open fireplaces are perfectly complemented by the tasteful decor and luxurious fittings throughout. Ground floor accommodation is generous and rooms overlook the gardens from every aspect. The bespoke kitchen is fitted with an Aga, hand painted cabinets, complimented by solid ash worktops. The kitchen effortlessly flows into the beautiful breakfast room. An impressive oak framed porch invites you into the front entrance hallway. The equally impressive traditionally dressed dining room is oak beamed and complete with inglenook fireplace creates a great focal point for dinner parties. Providing unlimited opportunity for entertaining, one of the later additions - complete with Minstrels gallery - is the magnificent vaulted drawing room constructed by Sir Malcolm Campbell in the early 20th century. To the first floor, the landing area leads to the ample bedroom accommodation. The sumptuous master bedroom suite with en- suite bathroom, is complimented by four further double bedrooms & family bathroom. The detached office is incredibly light with vaulted ceilings and glazed elevation, a great space for those who work from home. A property of this calibre and breath taking style is a pleasure to behold.

Although the house is sat within its own grounds with views of the countryside, you are conveniently located in this up and coming position. Gatwick & the M23 are close by for those of you who travel or commute frequently.
The quaint market town of Reigate is a few miles north if you are looking for boutique shops and great food not to mention being surrounded by some stunning countryside, wellies here are essential.

It is difficult to put into words how great our lives have been here at Povey. The house has provided us and our extended family and friends with the peace of a rural life, whilst its position allows ease of access to London, the coast and all the necessary local amenities vital to our busy lives, particularly whilst schooling three children in Reigate over the years. Ample parking and space have allowed us to enjoy many social occasions here, Christmas particularly is a truly special time and no one misses the chance to celebrate it at Povey. The 15ft Christmas tree has become a tradition we will sorely miss - especially the challenge of getting the fairy on top!
