Tenure: Leasehold

Fonteyn House forms part of Charters Village for the over 65's. The main mansion house, Charters Towers, has a range of communal facilities available for the exclusive use of residents - including restaurant, bar, library, conservatory, small shop, doctor's surgery, guest suites and galleried lounge.

Charters Towers has been part of the area's landscape for around 100 years. The building was the centrepiece of the world-renowned dance and drama school, the Bush Davies School of Dance, for much of the last century. During that time, the school's theatre played host to such names as Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev.

This particular apartment is situated on the ground floor of a two storey building and benefits from immaculate accommodation including an ample sitting room, fitted kitchen, master bedroom with en-suite and a further bedroom and bathroom. From the sitting room you lead out to a private patio with views over lawned gardens to the woodland beyond. The property further benefits from under floor heating and a camera entry phone system.


Charters Village is tucked away behind mature trees on Felcourt Road between East Grinstead and Lingfield on the Surrey/West Sussex border.

East Grinstead provides an extensive range of amenities including shopping, restaurants, public houses and supermarkets. Forest Row is a beautiful village with a range of independent shops, alongside a lovely public house, restaurant and coffee shop.

The nearest train station in East Grinstead provides frequent services to East Croydon, Clapham Junction, London Bridge and London Victoria.
