Description

Situated adjoining Collett Park, on Charlton Road, this substantial and unique property has to be viewed to be fully appreciated. Purpose built in the 1930’s to accommodate a doctor’s surgery, the main residence is detached with five bedrooms and five reception rooms. The home offers wonderful character with original features of the doctor’s surgery and provides plenty of space for a large family. The property is within walking distance of the town’s schools and amenities, making it even more surprising that this home has such extensive grounds including a cottage and paddock. The main house has plenty of character, offering over 2,750sq ft of accommodation. The property, although requires modernisation, has been a well-loved family home and maintained as such. The entrance hall is warming and inviting with its original and attractive staircase. Many of the principal rooms open from here, including the open plan Sitting Room and Dining Room, the Study and Garden Room. To the first floor, there five bedrooms of which four are doubles, two bathrooms and a significant amount of built-in storage. Multiple rooms are double aspect which creates a light and spacious feel to the property. As a whole, the property extends some 2.4 acres.

The Grounds

Private and fully enclosed, the grounds of Merrymead are quite spectacular. The mature garden is predominantly to the eastern and southern side of the house and is mainly laid to lawn with a mixture of trees and mature borders. A sun terrace is perfectly situated to the southern side of the property off the Garden Room. A stream runs south to north on the eastern border adding to the impressive gardens.

The Cottage

Located to the rear of the garden of Merrymead, The Cottage offers significant redevelopment potential offering 800sq ft of accommodation. Constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof, The Cottage would readily convert to provide a two or three bedroom dwelling, subject to Planning Permission. The Cottage benefits from a separate access from the main dwelling via a right of way with direct access onto Charlton Road. Externally, gardens wrap around the property and includes a productive vegetable plot.

The Paddock

The paddock comprises of a single block of pasture land extending some 1.5 acres. Collett Park borders the south and east of the land with stone walls and an allotment borders the western border. The land is accessed via a right of way from Charlton Road and offers potential for development.

Development Potential

It should be noted that both the Cottage and the Paddock sit within development boundaries of the town, however, any potential purchaser would need to satisfy themselves by undertaking their own enquiries into planning permission.
