New homes in Chipstead have real ‘star appeal’

“This really is a special development – it’s located in one of Chipstead’s most sought after roads, overlooking the Surrey downs. It’s so leafy and peaceful that you’ll forget how well placed for commuting into London you are – by rail, London Bridge is just 40 minutes* away, while by road central London is about 16 miles distant. Meanwhile, for day-to-day needs, Chipstead village centre is less than a mile away.

“And when you consider just how much home you’re getting for your money here than you would in London itself, you can really see the benefits. These new homes in Chipstead are designed for serious entertaining – the reception rooms are huge and have been designed to have maximum impact. The combination of location and style is a home with real ‘wow’ factor; so it’s easy to see why Whytethorne is causing such a stir.”

The only way to get a feel for the true scale and grandeur of these new homes in Chipstead, however, is to pay a visit to the Show Home. Enjoying its own gated entrance with sweeping gravel drive and elegantly landscaped front garden the imposing neo-Georgian façade impresses from the outset, giving an air of traditional substance. Step inside, however, and a cleverly designed layout breaks with tradition to make the most of the space afforded by the gently sloping plot this house occupies.

A generous hallway, flooded with light, provides access to the ground floor accommodation that features a 41’4” drawing room with access to a generous terrace with breathtaking views – perfect for welcoming guests with cocktails. Also on this floor is the study, a guest bedroom with en suite and a cloakroom.

In a bold break with tradition, a staircase leads to the lower ground floor, where the real heart of this home – and primary reception area – lies. To the rear of this floor is an incredible open plan space that includes kitchen, family room and formal dining area, which overlooks the lovely garden. Here entertaining will naturally flow outside during the summer months, courtesy of three sets of French doors that lead out to the patio. A media room, providing a cosy ‘home cinema’ for viewing movies in style, cloak room and utility room complete the ground floor accommodation.

To the first floor are four further generously proportioned bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and an elegant family bathroom.

And at Whytethorne it’s not just the scale of the homes that has been designed to impress. The specification, right down to the finest detail, has been designed to entice the most discerning purchaser. Bespoke, handmade and handpainted kitchen cabinets are complemented by stone worktops and equipped with a full complement of appliances in a natural steel finish; including an Amana American style fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser, the latest Brittania line dual fuel range cooker and a Siemens combination microwave oven and dishwasher.

Bathrooms, en suites and cloakrooms are elegantly furnished with sanitary ware from the house of Villeroy & Boch, polished chrome fitments from the Vado collection and bespoke vanity units.

These new homes in Chipstead are priced at £1,750,000 and £1,795,000 respectively. To book your appointment to view the Show Home, which is open Thursday – Monday from 10am – 4pm, call 01737 558 816.
