Guide Price £1,200,000 to £1,299,000 Hunter & Company are delighted to offer this stunning, five double bedroom, detached home in an exclusive location, on the edge of Merstham village and under half a mile from Merstham Station.
Built by ‘Messrs Mansard Homes’ and thoughtfully extended in recent years, our vendors have created a flexible and stylish accommodation covering over 3,300 square ft including the garage. The property offers a well-planned layout and includes a large entrance hall, 14ft study with access off the hall and kitchen, playroom and 19ft x 15ft sitting room with inglenook fireplace. Then there is the true wow factor - the 35ft x 26ft kitchen/diner/family room. We love this space and is one of the most impressive we have seen.
The stylish kitchen has a large centralised island with built-in ‘Miele’ microwave, induction and gas hob, wine cooler, plinth lighting and four-seat breakfast bar. The contrasting granite worktops, finished in a dark and light stone compliment the dove grey base units and dark oak cupboards, with matching ‘Miele’ double oven/grill and American fridge/freezer. The triple ‘Tom Dixon’ copper pendant lights compliment the space perfectly. The dining area sits under a glass lantern with imposing bi-folding patio doors. The family area again enjoys bi-folding patio doors all of which lead out to the enclosed and private rear garden. Just off the kitchen, there is a large utility room and access to the integral double garage.
Going upstairs, there are five double bedrooms, three with en-suite and a family bathroom. The master suite measures 18ft, with a Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden. There is ample built-in wardrobe space, with a concealed entrance to the en-suite bathroom. With a free-standing bath, double shower and twin sinks built into a vanity unit, WC and finally a dressing area with dual aspect. Bedroom two is located over the double garage so measures an impressive 17ft x 16ft, with Velux windows to the side and a window to rear. There is an en-suite to this room, with twin sinks, WC and shower cubicle. Bedroom three faces the front of the property and again has an en-suite shower room with shower cubicle, WC and basin. Bedrooms four and five are very similar in size with both measuring 11ft, facing front and rear of the property respectively.
Outside, the West facing rear garden is very private and secluded. Backing directly on to Reigate Hill Golf Course, mainly laid to lawn with a large patio area. There is a bespoke seating area ideal for alfresco dining which is surrounded by raised flower beds and another decked area to the rear of the garden. Enclosed mainly by fencing to boundaries, with mature trees to the rear. The front garden is laid to lawn with a sweeping driveway with parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage.
Situated in a private cul-de-sac, the property is located half a mile from Merstham village centre with local shopping facilities and mainline station. This much-admired area of Merstham is known for its charming high street and independent shops with several listed buildings and home of the annual ‘Quality Street Fair’. Merstham mainline train station with regular direct trains into London Victoria and London Bridge taking less than 40 minutes. There are also great bus and motorway links with M25 (Heathrow 30 mins) and M23 (Gatwick 20 mins) nearby. Merstham is also nearly at the end of its huge regeneration scheme with a new Co-op convenience store and Day Lewis Pharmacy 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 enjoyed sitting outside having 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, Dunottar, Reigate Grammar, Woldingham Girls and Caterham School to name a few. The Hawthorns Prep school for ages 2 to 13 is located 3 miles away in the village of Bletchingley, and after Government approval, a new school named ‘Merstham Park’ opened in September 2018.
