It's been a while since I have had the pleasure of selling a doer upper and Merton Lodge is certainly that. It is special and so deceptive, you don't actually realize what you have site wise till you walk around and yes you have a view of the Harbour from upstairs. Its south facing and within minutes's walk of the town Centre. Merton Lodge was built in the 1800's and is the lodge at the entrance of Frenchs Walk which is home to some really beautiful houses both old and new. Frenchs walk while I was growing up was some woods with the old houses below the lodge. Its really is a charismatic address full of charm. The lodge itself is a 2-bedroom house in need of complete refurbishment, it does have an extension to the rear but that really would need to be knocked. The owners worked very closely with the council and have now got full planning permission for a two storey extension to the east side of the house, still leaving you with plenty of garden and of course you will have an amazing view for the upstairs of the extension to the property is listed so the lodge cannot be knocked but the plans integrating the lodge are fantastic. You could definitely create off street parking within the property. Full details of the plans are on the websites and if you want to view, I will go through them in detail. Location wise you are at the East end of town which is a bit undiscovered I always say. The bus stop is literally a 2minute walk, the local shop is a 5 minute walk and you are all downhill to town to get to the Centre and train station.
