Property Flirt

Cute and charming … this cottage in Outwood has it all. If you think you're a bit of a property guru, go on then - guess the price!

Here I am back again, your Fairy Property Godmother, sprinkling superb square footage, hot tubs and underfloor heating everywhere I go. Yes peeps, it’s the Flirt Alert, time for you to kick back with a cuppa and nosey through the corridors and cupboards of another gorgeous pad in our monthly Property Flirt feature.

You know the score – I’ll drop you the odd clue then you get the old cogs whirring and guess the price. I’ll let you know how close you got. Easier than a Sunday morning. Prize? Uh, let me get back to you on that. Right then, let’s take a look…

Say a big hello to Juniors – a lovely cottage built in the 1960s and yet quite unlike anything you’ll have seen from that era. You’ll find Juniors nestled on the edge of the Harewoods National Trust estate in Outwood near Redhill.

It’s a three-bedroom two-reception room cottage that’s been cleverly extended to create a really versatile home that’s brimming with character.

Through the charming front door, you’ll find yourself in the entrance hall with a living room coming off to the left and family room off to the right. Pretty French patio doors open from the family room to the garden.

An inner hallway leads through to the kitchen diner, and on from there to the utility. There’s also a downstairs shower room and loo. The kitchen is the pièce de résistance here, with it’s vaulted ceiling, painted timber beams, and feature chimney breast showcasing a fire engine red Aga. It’s the heart of this family home, flooded with light from plenty of windows and glass double doors – perfect for throwing open in the summer to enjoy an evening G&T in the garden.

Upstairs the lovely light and airiness continues. There are three bedrooms, including an extended master bedroom, plus a family bathroom.

Outside, there’s a driveway with space for several cars and a detached double garage with electric doors. Above the garage is a guest suite, gym space or home studio with a shower room. There is also a summer house and detached garden office.

So, what other hints can I give? Well, it’s just over four miles from Horley and just under six miles from Redhill – both of which have mainline railway stations with fast direct services to London Victoria and London Bridge. Gatwick Airport is also less than six miles away.

Schools-wise, you’re well looked after with The Hawthorns, Dunottar, Reigate Grammar, Caterham School and Lingfield College all an easy distance away.

Righto! Are you ready with your final figure? Get it set in your mind, argue it out with the cat (or whoever’s sitting next to you) and click here to see how close you got!
