This gorgeous, detached home is deceiving and spacious once inside. Located in South Merstham, you are within easy reach of Redhill and Reigate towns plus the train stations (London in 27 mins) along with access onto the M25. With some of Surrey’s finest schools in the local area and gorgeous countryside walks just minutes away.
Parking up on the driveway, you follow the path round to the side access that leads to a smart front door. Once inside, you can see how this home has some modern updates whilst still keeping the character and charm of its original design. To the front you have the cosy lounge, a bay window brightening up the space and a feature fireplace to snuggle in front of on a wintery evening.
The open plan kitchen/dining room (with a second working fireplace) is at the back of the house, its social layout offers plenty of space for a large dining table. The open layout allows you to cook for your guests whilst staying involved in the chatter and provides you with ample storage units and work top space whilst you entertain.
The garden is perfect to enjoy all year round with a patio area to the side and rear, partly sheltered, surrounded by greenery, ideal for dining al-fresco. The large lawn provides hours of fun for the children or dogs to run around in with a summer house at the back and there is currently an outdoor office, if not needed for work this can be transformed into a
playroom to keep those toys tided away!
Back inside, upstairs, there are three bedrooms, the master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and still plenty of space to add in some additional furnishings. The family bathroom is spacious, with a large tub and overhead shower.
During the summer you can take a walk around Mercers Lake or head up to Gatton Park where you can admire the breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding towns and countryside whilst enjoying a picnic.
"Since moving into the property four years ago, we have renovated much of the house and garden, including new bathroom, flooring, electrics and fitted wardrobes & book case. We love the southern facing garden which has amazing natural light all year round, it’s a real sun trap! The home office in the Shed has been a real saviour over lockdown. There’s a big garden, so real opportunity to extend for growing families. Southcote road is quiet, friendly, sociable and safe, with many young families living here. It’s been a great commuter home with strong transport links – London Bridge in 27 mins. We are a young family and have been really fortunate to have benefitted from the various walks and trails around South Merstham such as the North Downs Way. There is a true village feel whilst benefitting from the larger towns of Reigate and Redhill located nearby. “
