PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

“Melrose” is a sweet, charming Victorian home, with an endearing character. The fairy-tale appeal evokes images of every day family life being enjoyed here. An obviously cherished family home where mealtimes take a little longer, as they should and where nearby beach walks are followed by cups of tea at the Aga or fireside chats in genuine comfort. The atmospheric interior is just as appealing as the pretty exterior, genuine antique, probably what first attracted its owner, the late Denis Drum, who was well known for having a keen eye for something rather special. The gardens are delightful, neat and manageable. Privacy and seclusion are guaranteed from mature boundaries where outside gatherings are enjoyed in the sunny front garden under a creeping Wisteria. This private warm space is screened from a tall hedge on front of which is parking for several cars. The rear garden is walled, paved in natural stone and functional with ample storage and side access for convenience with bicycles and such like. The accommodation is comfortable and homely. A little time spent here and Melrose will cast its spell, as all who visit feel instantly at home. Laid out in classic period style with some clever additions, all original features are intact. Through the porch and off the entrance hall are a formal dining room and a delightful drawing room on either side, both with fireplaces and tall ceilings. The kitchen is a large space and home to a huge dining table, an Aga and an extensive range of fitted wall & floor mounted timber kitchen cabinets. In addition to the Aga for winter cooking, is a gas hob and oven for summer. There is convenient access to outside from here. On the westerly side off the kitchen is a cleverly designed extended area accessed through French doors. A sun lounge to the front and a day room to the rear, both enjoy an abundance of natural light from their glazed panels above. Upstairs is reached by a delicate stair case with an ancient worn hand rail. This is a genuine treat to the eye. One set of steps leads to a double bedroom. The other to a landing off which are three more double bedrooms, 4 in all. And each featuring tapered ceilings and tastefully elegant décor. The bathroom is a fine size with a large bath, a whb, wc and separate shower. Located a few short steps from Sutton dart station and Sutton cross, convenience features here. Every amenity is nearby and reachable on foot. For those who appreciate character and charm, originality, convenience and a homely atmosphere, Melrose may be a dream come true for its very fortunate new owner.
