An incredible opportunity to purchase and extend Park Cottage, which lies within the parkland setting of the Reigate Priory and is referred to in historic documents as the keeper's cottage of the estate. The cottage itself possibly dates back to the 16th century but was heavily altered around 1790/1800 with further alterations in the mid 20th century.
The cottage is situated on the edge of Priory Park in the highly regarded Park Lane, within a short walk of the town centre, whilst being surrounded by the park and countryside and with spectacular views up to the North Downs. The accommodation currently comprises a pretty sitting room with a beautiful Inglenook fireplace with log burning stove, a kitchen/dining room, 2 double bedrooms with attractive vaulted beamed ceilings & exposed brickwork and a bathroom. The approved planning permission enables an extension to be added to the ground floor, increasing the reception space and balancing the accommodation through the creation of a spacious kitchen/dining and utility area with vaulted roof and doors out to the garden.
Outside the property has off road parking for a couple of cars. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, bordering Priory Park and enjoys fabulous views across the immediate countryside and to the North Downs. There is also a large outbuilding in the garden, (approximate measurements 7metres x 2metres) which if renovated could provide a wonderful home office which would also take in the wonderful views.
