Live the London lifestyle without the costs of the capital

Buying property is all about compromise, they say: location versus lifestyle, space versus spec. Not at Chandlers Place, where you really can enjoy a lifestyle more associated with London living, without paying the premium you expect.

Chandlers Place, Asprey Homes’ new collection of apartments in Caterham, Surrey has all those features that one usually thinks of as being confined to upmarket properties in the capital. With lift access to each floor, the eight properties, including two one-bedroom and six two-bedroom apartments each have video entry systems, while secure entry gates give access to the car park and bicycle storage facility.

The building itself is the perfect balance of contemporary chic and traditional appeal, a three-storey, red-brick building that oozes quality and aspiration enhanced by Juliet balconies and a dramatic flight of steps up to the front door. Two further entrances can be found either side of the main entrance, both of which lead directly into the ground floor, providing easier access for those less able.

It all adds up to the ideal choice for image-conscious buyers who want to combine city sophistication with provincial prices. And with the prices ranging from £225,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to £325,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, purchasers should not miss out on the chance to buy at a considerable discount on London prices.

Helen Jackson, Sales and Marketing Manager of Asprey Homes says: “Chandlers Place is raising the property stakes in Caterham by offering the kind of quality normally associated with London developments at prices one would never find in the capital. The development’s specification and security features will please the most aspirational buyer, while Caterham’s thriving property market should ensure a sound investment for young purchasers looking to move on up the property ladder.”

The apartments display the high quality and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of an Asprey Homes development.

The individually designed Paula Rosa kitchens come complete with an integrated oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher, all by Zanussi. Bathrooms are fitted with a mirror, a ladder-style towel rail and a concealed thermostatic shower. Internal doors are oak-veneered, there is handsome coving in the principal rooms, and the master bedrooms are fitted with wardrobes.

Chandlers Place is situated in the popular Harestone Valley area of Caterham, and it couldn’t be more convenient. The pretty, Victorian Caterham Station is just around the corner, offering rail services to London Bridge and London Victoria, with journey times of about 45 minutes. Junction 6 of the M25 is just two miles away, providing fast access to Gatwick Airport, 16 miles away, and Heathrow Airport, approximately 39 miles away.

Caterham is a bustling, attractive town with a plethora of individual shops complementing its range of major retailers, which includes a branch of Waitrose situated a short walk from Chandlers Place. Rimmed by the wooded Surrey hills, the town is perfectly situated for lovers of the great outdoors: within a couple of miles of the town centre are acres of pristine woods and common land, while the North Downs Way – the ancient pilgrims’ route that wends from Farnham to Dover – is the ideal means of exploring the exquisite countryside.

The area’s more formal leisure facilities include several prime golf courses, including the nearby Surrey National Golf Course, and tennis courts at Queens Park.
