***Part-Exchange available - Please ask for more details*** Guide Price £770,000 to £795,000 Hunter & Company are proud to offer this characterful detached family 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.
Our vendors have completely transformed this property over the past 11 years, now offering accommodation of just under 2,100 sq ft including the double garage.
The original property dates back to the mid-1930s and is approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway with parking for several cars. The house is not visible from the road which gives you an added sense of privacy.
On entering the property, you’re welcomed by a spacious entrance hall. The ground floor layout is very flexible and comprises; study, downstairs four-piece bathroom, 14ft bedroom/family room, 18ft sitting room and 21ft kitchen breakfast room with access to the utility room. The kitchen is finished in a walnut effect with a range of base and wall units with light coloured worktops. There is easily space for a large dining table making this the perfect place for the family and entertaining.
Going upstairs, we particularly like the landing with character nook, making an ideal workspace or somewhere to escape and read a book. The accommodation on this floor is spread between three double bedrooms and two separate shower rooms. The master has a large 11ft walk-in wardrobe, en-suite shower room and a dressing area with access out to a south facing balcony overlooking the garden. The second and third bedrooms are decent sized doubles and have windows out to the side garden. There is a modern shower room separating the bedrooms and completing the first floor.
The property boasts a plot of circa 0.51 acres and has been expertly landscaped to maximise its potential. Whether it’s the large south facing terrace, two-tiered lawn or secluded adventure playground, there is definitely somewhere for all the family here. In addition to what is clearly visible, there is also a sizable plot of wild garden that could be further explored for those wanting even more external space. With stunning views out across the Surrey Hills, emphasizing the elevated position and direct access out to The North Downs Way. There is a detached double garage with an up and over door, accessible via the sweeping drive with ample parking for several cars.
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’ opened its doors in September 2018.
