In the village of Merstham, Brincliffe Cottage was built around 1886 for the local Lime Works Quarry workers. Originally two cottages, this SEMI-DETACHED property has been transformed over the years to include a RECENTLY FITTED kitchen, new windows (to be done in December) and BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED throughout, yet retains ORIGINAL FEATURES such as two staircases, original beams, a fireplace and a shared residential parcel of land adjacent to the five cottages where a listed Mill Stone remains.
The front garden is lined by a picket fence and a covered portico showcases a green front door. There is a driveway to the side of the house with access to the rear garden.
Inside, you step into the living room where exposed beams above your head run throughout and the impressive brick fireplace has a warming wood burner. Creating an easy flow, there’s also a passageway to your right connecting the dining room and to the heart of this home – the kitchen.
Subtly adapted to the needs of modern living, this is a timeless kitchen/diner with a social breakfast bar and everything to hand. There is a traditional butler sink, a Range cooker and space for freestanding appliances.
Outside, the garden is secluded and secure, you’re in your own peaceful world surrounded by beautiful plants landscaped to compliment the house. At the rear the sunny garden is fenced and the lawn bordered by a low wall, scented beds and shrubs. There’s a seating area to dine al-fresco as well as a patio the front.
Upstairs, spacious and bright, all four bedrooms are restful, tastefully decorated and ready to move into. The three larger rooms all have built in wardrobe space and there is a family bathroom and separate shower room. On the second floor there is a versatile loft room with plenty of eaves storage.
Redhill town offers a wide range of shops, Leisure centres, Ofsted schools and excellent commuter links via Redhill railway and Merstham railway.
