Set in secluded, walled gardens close to the heart of Reigate, Fonthill Place brings a grand Victorian residence and coach house back to life. Beechcroft’s careful restoration and conversion has resulted in 10 generously proportioned two and four-bedroom apartments. Designed for the over 55s, these retirement homes feature terraces, balconies, private gardens or a combination of these along with allocated parking with electric charging points. There are plans for a further collection of newly built one, two and three-bedroom apartments within the grounds of Fonthill Place.

Beechcroft selects the best locations for its retirement developments, and Fonthill Place in Reigate, Surrey is no exception; it is within easy reach of local shops, services and transport links.
Both new and converted homes are designed to provide plenty of natural light and an abundance of generously proportioned living space but with fewer bedrooms than mainstream properties of a similar size. On each Beechcroft retirement development, an Estate Manager takes responsibility for the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas as well as being on hand to offer help and advice, if and when needed. Landscaping is a priority and settings are planted to provide year-round colour and interest.
Within each Beechcroft home, the fixtures and fittings are of the highest standard including bespoke kitchens with a full range of integrated appliances, stylish bathrooms and en-suites which include elegant white sanitaryware, vanity units and fitted mirrors. Beechcroft's homes are also energy-efficient and easy to maintain, and many include the Beechcroft Healthihouse specification, designed to create a living environment that promotes good health.

The Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretch from Farnham in the west, above Guildford, Dorking and Reigate, to Oxted in this east.
This area offers some of England’s most accessible and most scenic countryside, taking in some famous beauty spots including Box Hill, Leith Hill and, on the borders with Hampshire, the Devil’s Punchbowl. Walk along the North Downs Way or the Greensand Way, visit the National Trust’s Winkworth Arboretum in Godalming – glorious all year round but particularly in autumn. Attend one of the events at RHS Garden Wisley or just explore the fabulous gardens.
Surrey is also home to a rich collection of extraordinary historic homes. One of the most impressive must be Hampton Court Palace, home of Henry VIII, with over 60 acres of riverside gardens. Also enjoying a riverside location is the 17th century Ham House, set in formal gardens in Ham, just south of Richmond-upon-Thames. In Cobham, the 160-acre Painshill Park, created in the 18th century as a ‘living painting’ maintains that reputation with lakes, grottoes, follies and incredibly beautiful, landscaped gardens.
As you’d expect, Surrey has a rich sense of culture with plenty of local art, cinema and theatre venues, museums and galleries. In Reigate, the Grade I listed Priory Park Museum is set within 65 acres of parkland which hosts changing exhibitions of local and social history and costumes. Polesden Lacey, near Guildford, will give you an insight into the 1900s. Once owned by popular socialite, Margaret Greville, the house was built to impress – and today her collections are still impressive.
All across Surrey, pretty villages and vibrant towns provide unique shopping experiences. For a full day of retail therapy, head to the indoor shopping centres of towns like Kingston-upon-Thames, Camberley and Woking or explore the stylish retail outlets in Weybridge, Richmond, Guildford and Reigate. In Reigate, named as one of the best towns to live in 2023 by the Sunday Times, there’s a particularly impressive range of independent shops and boutiques, including up and coming designers and top brand names.
For entertainment and sports venues, you’ll be spoiled for choice in Surrey. In addition to cinemas, Guildford is home to G-Live, the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, the Mill Studio and the Electric Theatre as well as two great sports centres – Surrey Sports Park and Spectrum Leisure Centre. For a lively night out, Kingston-upon-Thames has an enticing collection of bars and restaurants, as well as theatre and cinema. In summer months, relax in a riverside restaurant in Richmond-upon-Thames or, all year round, enjoy a performance at one of the town’s three theatres. Overlooking the Surrey Hills, Dorking Halls is an art deco theatre, which presents comedy, live music and cinema screenings.
Surrey is perfectly placed for access into London and the South Coast. From Reigate, it’s only about 15 minutes’ drive to Gatwick airport and just over 30 minutes to Heathrow airport, traffic permitting.
