FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER: A unique property at the very heart of Westleton which occupies a large plot thought to extend to about 0.8 acres (subject to survey and measurement). The stylish house, which offers a spacious and contemporary range of accommodation, features a wonderful open plan living room with a double height vaulted ceiling with a gallery above. There are three double first floor bedrooms which are served by a bathroom and en-suite shower room to bedroom one. There is a first floor office which is open to the gallery and this could easily be adapted for use as a fourth bedroom. Bedroom one features a pair of south-facing French windows that overlook the garden. The ground floor comprises a reception hall/dining room; a well proportioned sitting room with a fireplace and wood burner and a kitchen/breakfast room which has a Rayburn Range. There is a useful utility room which links the kitchen to the integral garage. The garage has a radiator and potential for conversion to a ground floor bedroom suite or a home office/workspace. The open plan living room opens out to the garden via French windows. The accommodation is centrally heated by oil-fired radiators and benefits from double glazing. Doorways have been created on both floors at the west end of the house to facilitate access to an extension which was planned but never executed. The south facing garden is a particularly notable feature of Merrydown. Laid to lawn and flanked by established native hedges, the garden has a wide patio, flower borders, established shrubs and mature evergreen and deciduous trees. There is a large fruit cage and plenty of space for a vegetable garden. There are useful outbuildings which include a second single (detached) garage and a workshop which houses the oil-fired boiler. The garden is large enough to accommodate a substantial extension to the existing house; the erection of other buildings or may even offer scope for further residential development; all of which is subject to planning consent. This part of Westleton is on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty and lies within walking distance of the common and the stunning nature reserve at RSPB Minsmere, made famous by the BBC programme Spring Watch. There are wonderful local walks and cycle routes along this part of the coast through forest and heathland.
