Hunter & Company are delighted to offer this charming detached family home with an annexe, set within a secluded and mature plot. Located along a popular road, tucked away from all the hustle and bustle yet just 0.5 miles from Merstham train station and the M23.
This really is a wonderful family home with plenty of space for further extension (STPP). Requiring some modernisation, it’s time for another family to create special memories here.
The property dates back to circa the mid-1900s and is approached by a sweeping block-paved driveway. The house is set back from the road, with an attractive front garden with mature hedgerow and trees, giving you a real sense of privacy. Comprising a mixture of brick and tile hung elevations, with access to the rear and annexe via a cover walkway and tandem garage to the side.
The ground floor comprises a pitched roof storm porch that leads through to a spacious entrance hall. Doors are leading to all additional rooms including, downstairs WC, 18ft sitting room which opens up to a 10ft x 10ft conservatory, 16ft dining room and 16ft kitchen breakfast room which then also leads through to garage and annexe. The kitchen is a shaker style with plenty of worktop space and breakfast bar, this feels like the heart of the home.
Located just off the kitchen, there is covered access from the front leading through to the tandem garage and rear garden. The annexe is such a useful space, whether it be for further accommodation or working from home/running a business, there is a double bedroom, lounge, utility area and bathroom. Solar panels also occupy the majority of the roof space. Accessed via the rear garden, there is also a workshop that could easily be converted or used for storage.
Going upstairs, there are three large double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master has a dressing area and double aspect to front and rear, along with fitted wardrobes and an inset washbasin. The second and third bedrooms both overlook the secluded rear garden. The family bathroom is fitted with a washbasin, shower cubicle and low-level WC.
Outside, both front and rear gardens sit on a level plot, with mature trees and hedgerow giving great privacy. With ample off-street parking for three-plus vehicles, 23ft tandem garage, raised feature pond, mature weeping willow and children’s Play House. This garden has been the venue for many family parties and get-togethers and really has to be seen to be appreciated.
The property is located within the well-liked area of Merstham, known for its charming high street and boutique shops with several listed buildings and home of the annual ‘Quality Street Fair’. Here, you will also find Merstham mainline train station with regular direct trains into London Victoria & London Bridge taking less than 40 minutes. There are also great bus and motorway links with M25 and M23 nearby. Merstham is also nearly at the end of its huge regeneration scheme with a Co-op convenience store and Day Lewis Pharmacy having opened. The new Community Hub and more shop/restaurant units have also opened.
Located on the nearby Watercolour development are amenities including a Tesco Express convenience store, bus links, veterinary surgery, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy and a new children's nursery.
One other hidden gem, just on the outskirts of the village by Nutfield Marsh is Mercers Country Park, a significant nature reserve established around a former quarry pit. The historic pit is now Mercers Lake, which is used for water sports and offers idyllic views over the Greensand Ridge as well as plenty of public footpaths for dog walkers. Across from the Lake is the ever-popular 'Inn on the Pond' country pub, where many a Summers day can be lost sitting outside enjoying a cold beverage, whilst watching the cricket being played on the green.
Several primary schools located nearby include Merstham, Furzefield and Lime Tree. For those with older children, there is The Warwick, St Bede's, Royal Alexandra and Albert and a new school named ‘Merstham Park’ opened September 2018.
