Peacefully positioned family home, with delightful gardens.
Mergate House is a delightfully positioned family home built in 1937 with substantial later addition, set towards the end of a no-through road surrounded by countryside, creating a peaceful and private setting yet easily accessible.
The house enjoys light and airy accommodation with adaptable accommodation over two floors. A thorough programme of works were carried out on the house circa 2000, including the creation of a substantial two storey extension to create a fine triple aspect sitting room with fireplace, a spacious master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite bath/shower room on the first floor. Other rooms of particular note include the large kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, leading directly through to the conservatory with fine views of the garden and a fine dining room with fireplace. A snug with wood burner provides a further area to enjoy with a useful utility/boot room essential for rural living.
The bedrooms all enjoy fine views of the gardens and surrounding countryside beyond and are set off a central landing with four bedrooms in total, with three bathrooms including the en-suite to the master bedroom. There is plenty of storage and an airing cupboard.
Mergate House is approached from the west onto a private gravelled driveway through a wooden five bar gate, onto a gravelled parking and turning area. The house enjoys a right of access over a second drive to a further parking area adjoining the spacious double garage with electric up and over doors.
The gardens and grounds are a wonderful feature of the house and have been landscaped and improved at various stages during the current ownership. There are many points of interest with the gardens surrounding the house, making the most of the sun throughout the day. The main area of the garden is to the east of the house with a south facing aspect. Formal areas of hedging and lavender beds blend seamlessly with more informal areas of lawn and herbaceous borders with an abundance of roses , box hedging, spring bulbs and mature trees. A terrace adjoins the conservatory, ideal for outside dining with the gardens continuing to the west with a further area of lawn, rose beds, herbaceous borders and a seating area to enjoy the late afternoon and evening sun.
There is a kitchen garden with raised beds, useful garden sheds and a greenhouse.
