Property description

The heart of this home is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast/family room that spans the width of the house and opens onto the gardens.

Situated on a wide plot and with impressive front and rear gardens, this handsome period home is located towards the head of sought after Church Hill, a private road on the outskirts of Merstham Village.

The house is well connected to the Village with its shops and mainline station as well as to the countryside - a footpath at the back of the garden leads out onto open fields with views to the North Downs.

A large entrance hall with a grand staircase to galleried landing and striking gothic arch fretwork leads through to an impressive reception room. Used as both Living and Formal Dining space plenty of natural light enters through a large double glazed front window and two side windows. The Living Area has a feature fireplace with wood burning stove. The Dining Area has plenty of space for a large table, a dresser and console.

The fabulous Kitchen/Breakfast/Family room spans the width of the house with 2 sets of double doors that lead out to the rear garden. This well designed space is the hub of the home and creates a seamless flow between outside and in.

The Kitchen is fitted with modern stylish units providing plenty of storage space, integrated white goods and a chic Corian worktop. There are separate Larder and Utility rooms.

A Study, Snug/Play room, and downstairs cloakroom/boot room complete the downstairs space.

The five bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms are laid out over the two upper floors.

A fine Master Bedroom with a generous en-suite bath and shower room enjoys a delightful aspect over the rear gardens. The Guest Bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is another charming generous double with a lovely fireplace and is served by the Family Bathroom.

On the second floor there are two more double bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom.

To the front of the house the driveway provides plenty of parking in front of a fantastic detached double garage.

The rear gardens are simply glorious and contain a wooden framed and clad pool house, with changing room, bar and sliding doors onto the poolside patio. The pool is in need of some attention.

A large brick paved patio abuts the Kitchen/Breakfast/Family room and is the ideal place to set up camp for Summer. A formal lawn is bounded by well stocked beds and opens out to lightly wooded area and a footpath at the far end of the garden gives you direct access to countryside walks.

Take the excellent mix of generous, well laid out inside space, the large and varied gardens, then add in the charming location, the village access and the excellent transport links and this superb house has all the ingredients of the perfect family home.
