5 Bedroom Detached House, Rockshaw Road, Merstham, Surrey, RH1 3DE

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

A most imposing and elegant detached period residence of character in the Georgian style, offering spacious accommodation of 4266 sq ft (396.3 sqm) arranged over two floors. The property has recently been extended to the ground floor allowing for the versatile accommodation to be used as one large home or as a house with a self contained annexe benefiting from its own entrance. The house is very well-presented combining period detailing such as herringbone pattern parquet flooring and fireplaces of various styles with contemporary styling. The present owners have carried out an extensive refurbishment program including the replacement of all of the windows and doors with sympathetic, Georgian style premium double glazing including the Palladian arched windows. The fabulous kitchen is sophistically styled being comprehensively fitted with modern wall and base cabinets, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen area is a stunning orangery which affords a lovely aspect over the park-like grounds through its large, arched multi-paned windows whilst dining and entertaining. Also on the ground floor are gracious reception rooms, a utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor, there are three bedroom suites including the master bedroom which has a fitted dressing room with doors onto a balcony and an ensuite bathroom with separate shower. There are two further bedrooms, both serviced by a family bathroom and separate w.c. One of the bedrooms benefit from a balcony with aspect over the garden. The partially converted loft space (approximately 1355 sq ft) could be converted into additional living accommodation (subject to usual consents). Architect plans exist to convert the loft to a cinema room, 2 ensuite bedrooms and a mezzanine playroom.

Situation
Enjoying a rural setting, at the foot of the North Downs between Bletchingley and Merstham, conveniently located approximately 1.5 miles from Merstham, with its range of local shops and railway station providing connections into London Bridge and Victoria from about 27 – 33 minutes. Reigate, Redhill and Caterham town centres provide more extensive facilities. The M25 (J7) and M23 (J8) are about 1 mile distant. The area is well served for schools in both the state and private sector. Leisure facilities in the vicinity include Reigate Hill and Bletchingley Golf Clubs, the Nutfield Priory Spa and Health club and Mercers boating lake in Nutfield.

Outside
The property is set well back from the road and approached over a sweeping driveway providing parking for a number of vehicles, bounded by areas of lawn. The south facing rear garden is a particular highlight and incorporates a large area of lawn, interspersed by a variety of well stocked and colourful flower beds and a variety of mature trees – all designed and planted by the first owner, the original curator of Kew Gardens. The mature trees include two rare Japanese Sequoia trees and a number of other large trees and hedgerow, providing a high degree of privacy. An expansive paved terrace adjacent to the house provides an ideal space for entertaining. To the side of the property is an enclosed courtyard garden with an archway leading through to the main garden. Additionally, there is a heated swimming pool, ornamental fishpond, Japanese herb garden and all weather tennis court. To the west side of the garden is an industrial 80m zip wire, climbing wall and tree top platform. Garden lighting has also been installed across the gardens including floodlights for the zip wire.
