Purley Magna is a T A Fisher development of 14 properties built or refurbished in 2007, set in the stunning 7 acre grounds of the Grade II listed Georgian mansion house. The land historically made up a part of Purley Park, the second home of the St. John family of Lydiard Tregoze in Wiltshire from 1514 to 1789. From 1793 it was owned by Anthony Morris Storer MP with his family commissioning the Georgian mansion house that exists today believed to be modelled on Basildon Park and dating from 1805.
Built in 2007 by T A Fisher, 10 Purley Magna is one of 8 attractive mews Houses built around an appealing courtyard on the land of the original stable blocks of Purley Park.
Traditionally constructed with red brick elevations under a pitched tile roof with bespoke wooden double glazed windows, the accommodation has been finished to an exacting standard and is extremely well appointed throughout, including an integrated home information & entertainment system with Cat 5e wiring, video entry phone and security alarm.
The spacious Entrance Hall leads to a Cloakroom, Sitting Room with fireplace and contemporary fitted Kitchen with granite work surfaces and a host of built-in Bosch appliances including fridge/freezer, dishwasher, double oven, microwave, 5 ring gas hob & washer/dryer. The kitchen is open onto the dining room and both reception rooms enjoy double doors leading onto the private terrace & steps down to communal gardens. To the first floor are two Double En-Suite Bedrooms both with in-built wardrobes, with the master enjoying a beautiful outlook over the communal gardens and beyond to Mapledurham Lock.
