The property is located on the prestigious William Webb Estate, a Conservation Area. The 260-acre Webb Estate was laid out at the end of the 19th Century with the gated roads gently curving to give the best possible plots to demonstrate William Webb’s principal of “Gardens First”. A wide variety of shopping facilities can be found in Croydon, about 4 miles distant, with a Westfield shopping centre due for development over the next few years. Local shops can also be found in Purley, Coulsdon, Banstead and Reigate, with the Webb Estate’s own local village shop on the Village Green. Purley Rail Station provides fast and frequent services to London Bridge and Victoria with journey times of approximately 20 minutes. The M25/M23 interchange is about 5 miles away.
