The Vyne House is a handsome, detached house of quality, designed and constructed in 1914 reflecting the Georgian style of architecture. Providing generous accommodation of just under seven thousand square feet laid out over three floors, the house has an elegant gentility with tall ceilings, and large sash windows. Reception rooms are gracious and lead off from the wide reception hall which includes a majestic staircase with intricate wrought iron balustrading. The formal drawing room, which enjoys a dual aspect over the gardens and a fireplace with marble surround, leads to the sitting room that also has lovely views over the gardens. Elsewhere from the dining room, glazed French doors lead through to the garden room which in turn opens into the impressive indoor pool complex with terracing, shower, changing room and sauna and a series of double opening doors around a wide bay opening onto the rear garden.
Bedrooms are arranged over the upper two levels with the principle suite being particularly noteworthy with lovely views over the gardens, its access to a private roof terrace, two walk-in closets and an en suite bathroom. There are three further first floor bedrooms, serviced by three bath/shower rooms – one en-suite – and a study. The second floor is given over to two bedrooms and a bathroom along with a games room.
The property can be found just to the south west of the thriving and popular village of Banstead, with shops including Marks & Spencer Simply Food and Waitrose as well as an excellent choice of local independent stores. The larger centres of Sutton, Epsom and Reigate are within easy driving distance and the A217 gives fast access to the M25 at Junction 8 (Reigate Hill). This area is renowned for its choice of excellent schooling and access to the open spaces of Banstead Woods. There is also a good choice of restaurants, coffee shops and bakery and The Mint Pub & Restaurant, which is less than quarter of a mile away. Recreational facilities in the general area include a choice of golf courses, rugby, tennis and health clubs and leisure centres.
Approached via electric gates opening onto a sweeping, tree lined drive, which continues to a parking and turning area in front of the house and on to the large, detached garage. The mature gardens are a fabulous feature being laid out in various ‘stories’ to include more formal areas with colourful herbaceous borders, relaxed, natural areas, a kitchen garden and large expanses of level lawn. Set on one side is a fenced artificial grass tennis court. The whole plot extends to approximately 1.99 acres (0.81 hectares)
