Hunter & Company are proud to offer this wonderful detached period home set within secluded and mature grounds. Located along a country lane, away from all the hustle and bustle yet just 0.8 miles from Merstham train station and the M23.
This really is a wonderful family home. Our vendors knew it would be the moment they walked up the drive. Now that the children are all grown up, it’s time for another family to create special memories here.
The property dates back to circa mid 1930's and is approached by a five-bar gate and sweeping gravelled driveway. The house is situated with gardens surrounding it, giving you a real sense of privacy. Comprising a mixture of brick and tile hung elevations, the first floor boasts several pitched dormer windows, with views out across the landscaped gardens.
The ground floor comprises pitched roof storm porch which leads through to a spacious entrance hall. There are doors leading to all additional rooms including, utility room, study, 16ft bedroom / sitting room, 22ft drawing room, 18ft kitchen breakfast room which then also leads round to the dining room. The kitchen is a shaker style with centralised island, this really feels like the heart of the home.
Going upstairs, The stunning galleried landing floods the downstairs with light, there are three large double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master has a dressing area and en-suite shower room, along with access out to a roof terrace overlooking the garden and swimming pool. The second bedroom is 20ft and has a double aspect to front and side, while the third bedroom measures 14ft and has a private outlook to the side. The family bathroom has been refitted and comprises a freestanding bath along with separate shower cubicle.
Outside is where this property has no comparison. With grounds of approx. 2.0 acres, on a level plot, including a private wooded copse. With ample off-street parking for several vehicles, 18ft x 16ft detached double garage, pool shed, feature pond with mature weeping willow, 14ft Summer House and of course the heated outdoor pool. This garden has been the venue for many family parties and get togethers, even a wedding. This really all 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 a number of listed buildings and home of the annual ‘Quality Street Fair’. Here, you 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 brand new Co-op convenience store and Day Lewis Pharmacy having opened recently. The new Community Hub and more shop/restaurant units have also recently 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 after Government approval, a new school named ‘Merstham Park’ is set to open in September 2018.
