Merlewood provides the perfect down-size property comprising spacious principal rooms, combined with the flexibility of well thought out accommodation and ample storage provision.
The current owners have altered the internal layout, moving the stairs, removing a chimney and enlarging the kitchen to form an excellent hub of the home, overlooking the rear garden. These works also included the installation of a ground floor wet room, new central heating boiler, the front porch, as well as cosmetic updates. The first floor has also been upgraded with large built-in wardrobes to two bedrooms, but carpets and décor are now required.
One enters via a new front porch, providing a very useful introduction to the inner hall which is accessed from the porch via a connecting front door. There is a small cloakroom to one side, stairs to the first floor and a door to the wet room, comprising a shower, WC and basin, tiled floor and panelled walls with an extractor.
Another door provides access to the kitchen. This light airy space has glass doors offering direct access to the rear garden and a window with views out over the garden. The kitchen comprises an array of cream cupboards and drawers, with black granite worktops, a matching central island and breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a multifunction BOSCH oven and grill, Induction hob and extractor, dishwasher and fridge/freezer, as well as space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a further window to side, a door to the integral single garage, and a further door to the sitting room.
The sitting room is a lovely dual aspect room, with a bay window to front and window and doors to the conservatory to the rear. The central focal point in the sitting room is the brick fireplace to one wall. With its tiled floor and radiators connected to the central heating system, the conservatory provides additional access to the patio, bringing the outside in and affording a lovely outlook over the entire garden.
The first floor provides a small landing, with access to the roof space and double doors to an airing cupboard.
The main bedroom is a lovely dual aspect room, with a large window to rear and a small window to side offering a view out across gardens to the Cranesden Estate and the Rother Valley. To one wall is a complete set of wardrobes with sliding mirrored doors, and deep storage.
The second bedroom has windows to front and side and further built in wardrobe, and the third bedroom has a window to side, and a door to a storage cupboard.
The bathroom is accessed from the landing, and comprises a white suite to include a panelled bath with a shower over, WC and basin, tiled walls and window to rear.
Outside, to the front, there are mature hedge boundaries, with some flower bed borders and an expanse of tarmac driveway from Ashley Gardens to the front of the house and the garage, plus a side path that leads to the rear garden.
The rear garden is West facing, but open to the South for excellent sunlight. There is an area of mainly level lawn, plus a good-sized sandstone paved patio by the kitchen and conservatory doors. The flower bed borders are generous, with a small pond, with a shed tucked into the rear corner screened by bushes.
The property is situated just a few hundred meters from the 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street. Facilities in the village include a small supermarket with post office, butcher, baker, pharmacy, florist, greengrocers and deli as well as GP surgery, dentist and hairdressers. There are also a couple of cafes and Period Inns, including the renowned Middle House Hotel.
There are pretty churches of various denominations, a flourishing primary school and the well-regarded Mayfield School secondary school.
