A handsome colonial style detached villa with accommodation over two floors, Merriton embodies all that is great about the Burnaby – Period ambiance and elegant character combined with modern amenity walking distance from the south beach, library, park and train station – set amid private southerly gardens beautifully maintained and presented throughout, with its own private laneway to courtyard parking and two garages.
Deceptively larger than might first appear with a versatile layout including four bedrooms (one of which is downstairs); a bathroom on each floor; formal dining room, and sitting room with a broad bay window; plus integrated kitchen adjoining a cosy family room, this is an appealing proposition for those seeking a family home or pursuing an active retirement in a house included in the National Architectural Heritage portfolio website.
Characterised by a southerly tiled wisteria clad verandah porch welcoming one through to the generous hallway, Merriton continues to charm and delight as one discovers its accommodation, complemented by useful outbuildings and two detached garages to the rear, accessed from a private vehicular driveway to the side of the house.
Minutes’ walk from DART, city bound bus and Aircoach direct services, commuters have further choice by road via the convenient N11/M11/M50 corridor; while local educational amenities at primary and secondary level are first class.
Leisure amenities abound, with an active sailing club in the new marina, village, shore angling, bridge, tennis, GAA, rugby all catering for the sporting/athletic. Greystones and Charlesland golf courses are close to hand, with Druids Glen resort less than ten minutes’ drive. Lovely maritime and hill walks are there to discover, making this a superb place to live and put down roots.
Merriton’s gardens are a delight and we confidently recommend viewing!
