Virtual viewing available: A rarity! A 18th century townhouse of great charm and immense style, beautifully presented and with a wonderfully private walled garden. Quietly situated in Walmer Castle Road, Merwald House offers “grand” accommodation of a manageable size. Full of character and original features, the rooms are spacious and beautifully proportioned with lofty ceilings and large public areas, giving a feeling of space and light. A gated vestibule leads up steps to a magnificent front door. On entry one is aware of the special nature and character of the home. The current owners have decorated and styled the property...with flair and panache, totally in keeping with the mood of the house. A long hallway, on two levels, with original patterned tiles leads to the principal rooms. On the right is an elegant drawing room with a lovely fireplace and a wide window to the front, the perfect room for formal entertaining. Opposite is the snug, a more intimate room with an ornate fireplace and steps to the kitchen. The kitchen has been thoroughly remodelled with new units and a wooden topped peninsula breakfast bar. An Aga sits comfortably in a tiled recess. There is ample room for a table for informal dining. A glazed door leads to the garden and fills the kitchen with sun from the south west facing aspect. A door from the kitchen leads to an internal passageway with further doors to the outside and to a cellar. Opposite the kitchen is the dining room, a lovely room ideal for a family gathering or a long, relaxed dinner party. Adjoining is a small, original garden room. There is a useful ground floor cloakroom. Stairs rise to a generous landing. All the bedrooms are doubles and are individually and beautifully styled. The principal bedroom at the rear has an en suite bathroom as does the adjoining bedroom to the front; the remaining two bedrooms at this level share the shower room at the end of the landing. On the second floor there is a further bedroom, with lovely views over the garden, and a relaxed seating area with a door out to the roof terrace from where there are far reaching sea views. Outside The garden is a complete delight and a fitting accompaniment to the house, thoughtfully landscaped and planted. A brick pathway meanders past shrub and flower beds to a vegetable garden and summer house. High brick walls give privacy and protection. At the far end an archway leads into an enclosed garden storage area. A sheltered patio is accessed off the kitchen and offers an ideal space for al-fresco dining. The single garage is accessed via a private road almost opposite the house.
