Hunter & Company are delighted to offer for sale this wonderful investment opportunity, consisting of a two-bedroom property and detached garage/workshop with driveway. The maisonette forms part of a conversion in a Victorian semi-detached on a popular road. This property is being offered to the market with a BRAND NEW 125 YEAR LEASE and the FREEHOLD to the entire building, making this an ideal long term investment.
The two storey freehold garage/workshop next door has a driveway for one car and three rooms arranged over two floors. Two of which measure 17ft x 14ft, the third is 10ft x 6ft. What can be made of this space is down to your imagination, obviously any development would be subject to the usual planning permissions, but we think there is plenty of potential on offer.
You enter the maisonette through its own front door, which is also accessed via a gate through the gorgeous landscaped courtyard garden. As you approach the first floor the kitchen and bathroom can be found at the back of the property. The kitchen is nice and bright with dual aspect and houses mainly freestanding appliances. The bathroom has a white three-piece suite with shower over bath.
The sitting / dining room has a gorgeous feature fireplace and is again dual aspect with the perfect alcove for a four-seater dining table. There is also a bonus over stairs storage cupboard.
The bedrooms are found at the front of the property and are both accessed off the sitting / dining room. The main bedroom is a double room with views to the front of the property and a built-in wardrobe. The second room is a good-sized single with dual aspect, a feature fireplace as well as plenty of space for a freestanding wardrobe or drawers.
The property is located within the much-admired area of Merstham, known for its charming high street and independent 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 and London Bridge taking less than 40 minutes. Also located nearby is Surrey National Golf Club with its state-of-the-art clubhouse. 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 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 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 but 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.
