Property Description

Full description

Set back in its own private and secluded plot of some 0.7 of an acre, is this beautiful Costain built family home from the early 1920s. A subject of extensive refurbishment and further enlarging by the current owners, Bracken is not only restored to its former glory, but now boasts a specification that would match any of its contemporary new builds; thus creating the perfect combination of character and modern living.

The accommodation is spread over three floors, with a constant sense of lightness and flow, incorporating conventional spaces such as a formal drawing room, with open plan kitchen/family spaces, and there is even a cinema room currently on the top floor. Our client has made great use of different textures throughout, again combining oak with porcelain tiles and Italian quartz worktops, whilst at the same time introducing top quality fittings such as Villeroy & Boch, Duravit and Hyperion. Other features also include Cat 6 wiring, hardwood glazed windows, underfloor heating, low voltage downlighters, new boiler, luxury bathrooms and much more besides.

To the outside Bracken is approached by an in and out driveway leading to a large open gravelled forecourt area, which in turn gives access to a detached double garage and workshop. The gardens are beautifully tended, extremely well established and provide a wide, flat area with a secluded west facing rear aspect; it really does add yet another dimension to what is already a unique and special home, and we would suggest a private viewing is the best way of appreciating its full virtues.

The village of Kingswood provides a reliable commuter line to London, as well as a comprehensive parade of local shops and restaurants, including a convenience store/post office, off licence, Waterhouse Cafe, travel agents, hairdressers, beauticians and The Kingswood Arms public house. Locally there is a wide choice of state and independent schools including Chinthurst, Aberdour, and Kingswood Primary, whilst further schooling including Dunottar, Micklefield, and Reigate Grammar are found in the nearby town of Reigate. For the golf enthusiasts there are four world-renowned golf clubs close by; Kingswood Golf and Country club, Walton Heath and the RAC golf. Horse Riding schools and stabling can be found in Kingswood, Chipstead, Tadworth and Walton on the Hill.

For more varied shopping needs both Banstead and Reigate are within 4 miles with a wide variety of independent boutiques, high street chains, and supermarkets. In terms of transportation, Kingswood Station provides services into London of approximately 45 minutes. The M25 is accessed via Junction 8 providing connections to the wider motorway network and easy access to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
