Property description

This may be a quiet residential suburb in Merstham, but it is home to a vibrant community of families and professionals of all ages, who love the peace and tranquility of the countryside nearby, but also need to be well connected for work and entertainment. Many of the local schools are ‘outstanding’; the high street has eateries and coffee shops, and you are less than an hour from London by train.

A winding road takes you past the perfectly manicured verges, and front gardens all in pale brick, to where this house stands with a double fronted façade. A brand new driveway has been added which allows you to park 4 cars off road and there is planning permission to extend the property.

The entrance hall is welcoming, and first on the right is the main living room which stretches the depth of the house, and has windows looking out to the front garden views.

From the hallway, there is a separate WC and a dining room to the left. During the summer months, the patio door can be left open, extending the space into the garden for entertaining. The house is ideal for this as you can also access the garden from the kitchen, so the whole ground floor flows perfectly, allowing for easy movement of people in and out.

The chic kitchen, which has ample preparation space on the wood worktops, and plenty of storage in glossy cupboards, with appliances all integrated to include a four-ring gas hob, a dishwasher, two fridges and a freezer. There is also a deep understair cupboard for keeping unwanted cleaning appliances and other storage.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms; all elegantly styled with peaceful views across neighbouring gardens. One of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes to maximise the floor space, and the master enjoys an en suite shower room in the similar contemporary style as the family bathroom, which has a polished finish with tiles and a shower over the bath

"First impressions for me are everything... And this home did not fail to exceed my excitement! I love the double fronted feel, and the beautiful approach to the house. The current owners have made the garden children friendly, and the the different rooms leading to the garden makes it ideal for entertaining outside. Should you want a dining room, office or play room downstairs the house is very versatile."

The first thing we noticed when we moved in to this property was how peaceful the area is. Both my husband and I catch the train into London and the property is within walking distance of the station. In the summer afternoons it is lovely to walk to the Inn on the Pond to sit in the sun and watch the cricket. We have recently added a driveway which has been a great addition, and had planning permission approved to extend the downstairs and make the kitchen area much larger.
