Luxury lock up and leave coming soon in Kingswood

30th January 2015 Print

The leafy and affluent neighbourhoods of inner Surrey are known for their large private houses but there is an increasing demand for top end yet smaller properties, especially among those who travel a lot. Downsizers and busy professionals want to enjoy the many attractions of the area and don’t want to compromise on the luxury and prestige of their home, yet they find that an apartment might better suit their lifestyle. This is where Kingsworthy fits the bill, the soon to be released collection of exclusive apartments from Millgate in Kingswood, Surrey.

Kingsworthy offers seven premium two and three bedroom apartments, as well as one luxury five bedroom detached family house. The apartments make ideal lock-up-and-leave properties for downsizers who take frequent trips or perhaps have a second home overseas and for professionals who commute or travel internationally for work.

Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate, Jonathan Cranley comments: “It is rare to find country apartments of the calibre that we are creating at Kingsworthy but we believe there is a strong demand for this type of property. Downsizers who are relocating from a larger family house in the area still want prestige and very high quality, but they want a more manageable property to suit their lifestyle. Equally busy city workers might want a base with excellent connections to central London where they can enjoy country life and all the area has to offer at the weekend. We don’t expect the homes at Kingsworthy will remain on the market for long.”

All of the properties available at Kingsworthy are elegant and spacious, designed and finished to the highest standards that Millgate is renowned for. While modern luxury is at the heart of the design, architecture is classically inspired to give a period and uniquely British style. Set within secluded private grounds, Kingsworthy is a place for enjoying the finer things in life.

The interiors are complete with the very best specification and materials incorporating state of the art technology and every possible creature comfort. Light and airy kitchens, which are sure to be the hub of the home, feature island units and a combination of bespoke hand-painted wall and floor cabinets complemented with granite worktops. They come complete with a full range of Siemens natural steel appliances, including a five-burner gas hob, electric fan assisted oven, extractor hood, combination microwave oven and warming drawer, while larder fridge, waste disposal and wine cooler are also fitted. The utility room provides extra storage and has washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stylish bathrooms and en-suites are equipped with white Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware with contemporary Vado chrome furnishings and bespoke vanity units finished with stone tops and large mirrors. Dressing rooms have ample storage with fitted oak effect shelves and hanging space. The highly efficient gas fired central heating and hot water system with underfloor heating throughout the ground and first floors ensures the homes are always cosy.

Outside the gardens are thoughtfully laid out by a Chelsea medal winning landscape designer and planted with immaculate lawns, attractive low maintenance planting and mature shrubs and trees. Each apartment has its own private garage with electronically operated doors. Security is a priority for the lock up and leave market, so a range of security features are included. The main entrance gates are operated by a remote hand held device and have a video entry system linked to each apartment. An approved hardwired intruder alarm system is fitted for each property and external lighting adds security at night.

Kingsworthy is an ideal setting off point for those who like to travel. It is located within easy walking distance of the rail station from where it is an easy 40-minute commute into Central London direct to London Bridge. By car, junction 8 of the M25 is just moments away and Gatwick Airport is only 11 miles away making international travel a breeze.

The homes at Kingsworthy are perfectly located to enjoy everything that this wonderful area has to offer. The village is renowned for its peace and quiet and spacious plots with leafy lanes and beautiful private homes and also offers several independent shops for every day needs, as well as the popular local watering hole, the Kingswood Arms. A couple of miles away, Banstead offers a more extensive range of shops including Waitrose. Residents at Kingsworthy are spoilt for choice when it comes to leisure activities. It is a golfer’s paradise with three top golf courses on the doorstep including Surrey Downs Golf Course and Kingswood Golf Course and Country Club. As part of the North Downs, the area also offers excellent walking and cycling.

The homes at Kingsworthy will be launched to the market in early spring with guide prices starting from £700,000. For more information and to register your interest, visit
