LOCATION: Hayling Island is situated 10 miles west of Chichester and is linked to the mainland by a bridge. Merrimede is located in a private cul-de-sac in one of S.W. Hayling's prime residential locations a quarter mile from the golf club and beach and six miles from Havant mainline station to London. The theatre is less than one mile away. The property lies down a secluded tarmac surfaced private drive and is accessed through a pair of wrought iron style gates with parking for upto six cars outside plus two more in the detached double garage.
ABOUT HAYLING: The sandy four mile long Blue Flag beach is popular with swimmers and windsurfers and the golf club fronts the beach. The island includes several sailing clubs, stables, multi-sports clubs or gyms. Shopping on the island includes three supermarkets, an open air seafront market once a week, a large number of smaller food and clothing shops. Larger supermarkets and more comprehensive shopping can be found in Havant six miles away. Parking is relatively easy with a number of shops also offering free parking. South West Hayling, with the sea to the south, the harbour to north and the ferry to the west is in some ways similar to Sandbanks (but with property prices about ten times lower at present). The opening of the A3 Hindhead tunnel in 2011 has brought the M25 within about a 50 minutes drive.
