Open Day for Phase 2 at Fircroft Place, Epsom
Designed by Nye Saunders, Fircroft Place currently consists of four highly specified detached family homes set back from Reigate Road within an exclusive cul-de-sac setting.
Traditionally built and architecturally striking, these 3 and 4 bedroom properties offer contemporary appliances, fixtures and fittings throughout. The interior layouts are cleverly designed to provide a traditional and open plan design. At the heart of each home, the kitchen seamlessly combines with a dining area to create one impressive living space and wall to wall glazed folding doors ensures natural light floods into the ground floor.
Inspired by the Arts and Crafts tradition, but with a modern feel, the houses at Fircroft Place all feature a chimney at the front of the house as a focal point. We were particularly influenced by the fireplaces at Blackwell (a Grade 1 Listed house by Baillie Scott) where fireplaces are combined with windows and window seats.
At the front of each house is the main living room which has a large inglenook fireplace to provide the focal point of the room. Flanking each fireplace are a pair of corner windows, giving the opportunity for intimate seating, with plenty of daylight. As form follows function, the generous inglenook fireplaces require large chimney stacks.
On the first floor the master bedrooms sit above the living rooms and have vaulted ceilings with full height glazing on the gable ends, creating a pleasing symmetry to the room which would have been lost had the chimney and fireplace in the room below been sited anywhere but centrally on the front gable.
The central chimneys give a distinctive character to the houses which was important to our clients, the award-winning Latchmere Properties, one of the leading developers of fine homes in Surrey, who are renowned for building high quality characterful homes.
Construction on phase 3, an additional two 3-bedroom chalet bungalows is already underway and so another two beautiful homes will be coming to Fircroft Place soon.
