Trevor Kearney Director in Savills Country House Department explains how luxury penthouse living provides an attractive down-size option in Surrey

North Surrey is an area that people move to for a multitude of reasons, from the great schools for families through to the security and privacy provided by its many private roads and estates. Once people settle in the area, they tend to stay, making both moves to upsize into larger homes, as well as downsizing once their children have flown the nest. 

An Esher address with all the trimmings

One of the communal amenities enjoyed by residents at Parkside are the carefully landscaped gardens

We’ve recently launched a stunning penthouse in the heart of Esher perfect for those looking to downsize without compromising on the features they have grown accustomed to. Parkhill is a prestigious building, made up of only nine apartments on one of Esher’s private roads.  The building is a mere 350 yards away from Esher town centre and all of its shops, restaurants and amenities. Luxury penthouse living provides an attractive down-size option.

Parkhill is approached through a gated entrance on to a private driveway and is surrounded by beautifully landscaped communal gardens. The apartment has two allocated parking spaces in the underground garage, where there is also dedicated secure storage space. An eight person lift serves all floors in the building, including the basement car park level. Another useful feature is the building’s in-house security.

An impressive dual aspect main reception room features a bespoke gas fireplace, comfort cooling, large sash windows and a door to one of the two private terraces. The contemporary kitchen/breakfast room is generously equipped with timber fronted cabinets, contrasting granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. It also has comfort cooling. A separate useful utility room is situated on the other side of the entrance hall.

The principal bedroom has a dressing area with oak finished fitted wardrobes, comfort cooling and a luxury marble tiled ensuite bathroom, with twin ceramic basins, bath and separate shower enclosure.
