££950,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Set in almost one third of an acre, this lovely detached house has cottage character and an elevated setting with some views over fields to the front. The property now offers its next owners a wealth of potential for refurbishment, extension and even replacement in this high-value, private Kingswood location.

It is not often that one of Costain’s earliest Kingswood homes, almost un-extended, comes to the market. Built in the 1920’s, the house has had few owners including our client’s family who have lived here for some 60 years. The house retains its cottage character whilst having been updated in the 1960’s and it has been well-maintained throughout. There is gas central heating and we understand that the house has been rewired more recently. Set back from the road, the house has a winding driveway to a large carport which has been added to the front of the detached garage. The rear garden sloped gently upwards into a coppice of trees at the rear. Overall the plot measures around 0.3 acre and this gives plenty of space for substantial extension, and even replacement of the original house, subject to the usual consents. A rare find, this property is available with no onward chain.

In an elevated setting in this quiet, private road the property enjoys some views over fields whilst offering easy access to local amenities. Just over half a mile away, Kingswood Village offers local shopping, the Waterhouse caf頡nd the Kingswood Arms gastro-pub. For more diverse shopping and supermarkets, Reigate, Epsom and Banstead Village are all within a few minutes' drive. There are frequent rail services to London Bridge and Victoria from Kingswood Station and nearby, the A217 provides an arterial route to London and to the M25 motorway at Reigate Hill (J8), giving swift access to Heathrow and Gatwick Airports in some 45 and 25 minutes respectively. Some of Surrey's finest schools are available locally including Epsom College, Dunottar, Reigate Grammar, City of London Freemen’s, Chinthurst, Aberdour and Banstead Prep. Other schools such as Whitgift are easily reached by train or bus. Kingswood is encompassed by beautiful North Downs countryside for walks, cycling and riding and almost every conceivable sport, leisure and cultural pursuit is catered for nearby including Kingswood's two golf clubs and tennis club.
