Decked with art from around the world and with Surrey views to die for, Chart Ridge is a stunning new contemporary property at Limpsfield Chart near Oxted.

Built by luxury house builder Millgate and perched on the edge of an escarpment, this five-bedroom detached house appears to almost float in mid-air.
As soon as you step through the front door light floods into the double height entrance hall from every direction thanks to floor to ceiling windows.
This concept of light and space is echoed throughout the house and formed part of Millgate’s choice to team up with Irish artist Ian Humphries and the contemporary Third Sector Gallery to showcase artworks in the show home.
Chart Ridge’s airy interior is complemented by an unadulterated view, terraced garden and infinity pool with breath-taking views of the local countryside.
“Our in-house design teams work closely with Alexander James, the Berkshire-based interiors company we employ to dress our houses,” says Jonathan Cranley, sales and marketing director for Millgate.
“Bringing contemporary prints and oils into Chart Ridge is taking things one step further. We usually hang prints that are in keeping with each house, but the works of art that have been loaned to us are really thrilling to see. They have helped to create a wonderfully unique show home.”
In addition to the interior art, the work of James Doran-Webb is showcased in front of Chart Ridge. His life-like animal sculptures are created from driftwood gathered from the shores of the Philippines, where he resides.
The property is found alongside two more five-bedroom country homes and six luxury apartments at the Trevereux Hill development.
The apartments were converted from a convalescence home that was built by British journalist, newspaper owner and philanthropist, John Passmore Edwards for the Charing Cross Hospital.
