SUMMARY DESCRIPTION Merriemede is a property whose attributes can be summarised in a few select words; spacious, adaptable and secluded among those which are paramount. Located towards the end of a private lane on the south west extremities of Hayling Island, this coastal villa stands behind double wrought-iron style gates in a plot of about one third of an acre. Internally, the primary reception rooms have fine mahogany strip flooring and patio doors leading to the gardens. The kitchen, which is fitted with all new appliances, connects the dining room and the orangery creating a layout which fits very well with modern family life. In addition there are two sitting rooms and a conservatory totalling exceptional reception space. The ground floor also provides a double bedroom with an ensuite shower room, a further bedroom/study with adjoining sun lounge, and a family bathroom. The mahogany tread staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing where there are three further bedrooms, an ensuite shower room and another bathroom. There is very useful and spacious eaves storage which can be accessed from all the upper floor rooms. Attic storage accessible from bedroom 2. Superior levels of insulation have been installed making Merriemede a very economical home to run.

Among the many significant improvements the current owner has made over recent years is the addition of a ground floor annexe of some 590 sq ft. The Annexe's open plan area with bathroom could, with ease, be re-configured to incorporate a lounge, kitchen and bedroom. The required electrics and plumbing have already been installed to facilitate this. A large boarded loft also provides the opportunity for further accommodation if desired. The annexe benefits from under-floor heating and has both independent and internal access.

In summary, there is nothing 'small or skimping' about this family home, even the bathrooms are generous in proportion. Rarely found in modern property styling!

Hayling Island, which is situated about 10 miles to the west of Chichester, is connected to the mainland by a bridge. It is primarily regarded as the 'south coast playground' and is a popular choice for many who relish outdoor pursuits; sailing, windsurfing, swimming, walking, cycling, riding and golf. There are over three miles of beaches around the island with the three main ones having European Blue Flag status. There are a number of supermarkets and stores for daily necessities, whilst Havant (approx. 6 miles) provides more comprehensive shopping. Chichester and Portsmouth are further afield but reached easily via the A27. Commuters are served by the mainline station at Havant, and the M27 connects with the A3 to the M25 (usually in under one hour) and to London via the new Hindhead tunnel.
