The four/five-bedroom detached house, named Merryville, is presented to a high standard harmoniously blending period character with modern, contemporary tastes.

The house dates back to the 1930s and over the years it has been the subject of a comprehensive and high-quality refurbishment that has resulted in a comfortable and welcoming family home.

Inside, the accommodation is presented to a high standard and offers flexible living options. On the ground floor, there’s a cosy sitting room with a wood burner and double doors that lead through a classic-looking kitchen/family room with a full range of bespoke units and quality appliances. Beyond this, there is direct access to the integral garage, cloakroom and office.

On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room and a large dressing area or nursery room.

Outside, the enclosed rear garden has been thoughtfully landscaped with entertaining in mind. It features a delightful, paved terrace with an outdoor kitchen and a barbeque area with a pizza oven, plus a charming summerhouse that homes a built-in bar. A second paved area, with bespoke bench seats, leads onto neat lawns, vegetable beds, a wisteria-covered pergola and a small pond.

At the front, triple gates lead from the public road to a wide gravelled area and a carport in front of an integral garage.
