Every now and then we encounter property where the word “house”, doesn’t seem to do it justice; with a stunning bespoke indoor pool, bar, sauna, gym, jet spa, steam room, state of the art garages, triple frontage, around an acre of grounds, driveway and woodland, and enough smart engineering to make Tony Stark proud; the sum of its parts make Birch House as a whole one of the best we’ve ever encountered in Kingswood.
Let’s start with the house; the ground floor circulates around it’s entrance hall, a large and impressive centre piece with genuine and flawless marble flooring providing the breath-taking effect of undisturbed water flowing through the room and onwards into the dining room & kitchen. To your right, an executive study looking over the front of the property, and to the left, a downstairs cloakroom, and a more casual homework space for the children. The living room strikes the perfect balance between size and intimacy; with access to the garden on one side of the room, and a gas fireplace on the other. The dining room is the perfect size to house its 10 person table, along with drinks cabinet, and has French doors leading out into the garden, as well as a frosted glass door leading directly into the kitchen. The kitchen provides the “wow factor” in spades; a huge marble island dominates the room, with kitchen units running parallel to it, leading your eye out through to the mammoth window which frames the impressive rear garden into an ever changing portrait. In terms of spec, this kitchen does not cut corners, integrated Miele appliances include three ovens, combi microwave, induction hob & extractor fan. The fridge / freezers are a combination of conventional swing doors and pull out drawers, alongside the glass display wine fridge. Another feature of this impressive space is the award winning dual sided suspended Television, a guaranteed talking point for any dinner party. The utility room is just off the kitchen and comes fully equipped.
Upstairs is built around the landing and the impressive oak staircase; which every bedroom leads from. The main bedroom is as you would expect for this calibre of property, a large main room, with access out to a rear terrace commanding views over the grounds, a fully equipped dressing room, and modern en-suite. The secondary bedroom / guest suite is on the opposite side if the house, with bespoke built in storage, and en-suite, complete with views of the garden. The rest of the accommodation comprises of three further double bedrooms, one of which also features smaller en-suite and dressing room.
Now for the bells and whistles, of which the house has plenty. “Birch Spa” is the leisure wing, custom built by the current owners to cater to all recreational needs. The Indoor pool and it’s surrounding structure took inspiration from a prestigious Hotel in Austria. The rear face of the building is almost all glass, with bi-folding doors extending the full width, blurring the lines between outside and in. A bespoke glass and steel staircase stands proud in the middle of the room, adding to the grandeur and posing question as to where it leads. The Sauna sits behind a glass wall suspended above the pool, providing a rather unique viewpoint out to the garden through the glass and then the waterfall cascading from the floor above. Just off the Sauna is the steam room, both are commercial grade and have been executed with stunning attention to detail. Stairs then take you down a level, where you will find the gym on your left behind tall glass walls, equipped with full height mirrors on one side and a shower behind frosted glass on the other. The door at the end of the corridor provides access to the triple garage, which we will get to in a moment. Back to the feature staircase, which leads up to the “Games room” build with one function only, to entertain. The space is suspended above the pool with seemingly gravity defying engineering, featuring a professional grade bar, space for pool table, and roof terrace providing a vantage point over your frontage and the surroundings beyond, perfect for hosting a New Years Eve party for the history books.
Outside the south west facing plot of over an acre really shines. The property benefits from triple frontage, with a stone in & out driveway behind private gates, that runs up the side of the property to the detached double garage, which alongside the attached triple garage, makes for indoor storage for 5+ vehicles. The triple garage has three doors to its front, and one to its rear, where you’ll find a separate large section of driveway with its own private gates leading out to Woodland Way. The garage is fully prepared for the storage and maintenance of luxury vehicles, and even features its own mechanical inspection lift. The attention to details continues in the rear garden, with a perfect balance of lawn, entertainment features, patio, mature beds & woodland. The portion of patio leading out from the pool is a social haven, with a custom stainless steel jet spa sitting flush with the patio, below a feature wall with built in outdoor TV and fireplace. The stretch of well maintained lawn gives way to woodland, which is home to multiple out buildings, including breeze house, tree house, garden workshop and shed. The entirety of the outside has a comprehensive lighting system, and power sources throughout.
Having read all of the above I don’t think it will come as a surprise to hear that the property is full to the brim with smart tech and infrastructure. The house itself has zoned underfloor heating in every room, as well as built-in speakers, and CAT6 wiring. The leisure wing has been designed and built to have easy access for maintenance to all pipework and mechanisms. The entire property is covered by a state of the art security system, including CCTV. The gardens all benefit from a smart irrigation system.
The village of Kingswood provides a reliable commuter line to London, as well as a comprehensive parade of local shops and restaurants, including a convenience store/post office, off licence, Waterhouse Cafe, travel agents, hairdressers, beauticians and The Kingswood Arms public house. Locally there is a wide choice of state and independent schools including Chinthurst, Aberdour, and Kingswood Primary, whilst further schooling including Dunnottar, Micklefield, and Reigate Grammar are found in the nearby town of Reigate. For the golf enthusiasts there are four world-renowned golf clubs close by; Kingswood Golf and Country club, Walton Heath and the rac golf. Horse Riding schools and stabling can be found in Kingswood, Chipstead, Tadworth and Walton on the Hill.
For more varied shopping needs both Banstead and Reigate are within 4 miles with a wide variety of independent boutiques, high street chains, and supermarkets. In terms of transportation, Kingswood Station provides services into London of approximately 45 minutes. The M25 is accessed via Junction 8 providing connections to the wider motorway network and easy access to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
I hope the above gives you a taste of what this magnificent property has to offer, though it really does have to be experienced in person to appreciate it truly. Get in touch with Peter on .
