A delightful and charming Grade II listed town centre cottage dates back we believe to the 16th Century with later additions and alterations in the 17th Century, and as with many houses of this age has changed in appearance many times during its lifetime. The Georgian facade belies the mediaeval interior and of particular note is the large inglenook fireplace which dominates the sitting room and creates a wonderful atmosphere. The kitchen / breakfast room comprises of units and there is space for a cooker, fridge freezer and washing machine. From here are double doors providing access to and an outlook over the rear garden. The house is set out on three floors with a bedroom and bathroom to the first floor and a separate staircase leading to the second floor bedroom. The house has retained much character with exposed beams, exposed oak floor boards and charming enclosed turned staircases. The house is presented in pleasant finishes and does have planning permission to extend the rear of the house if needed.
Castle Street is one of the most prestigious roads in Farnham with a mixture of predominately Georgian architecture, although many of the properties, including this house are much older with the later addition of a Georgian facade, creating uniformity to the street scene. Castle Street is a wide principal street which leads from the heart of the town up to the Castle and beyond to Farnham Park, which comprises many hundreds of acres of parkland. In the heart of the town there is easy access to the extensive cultural, shopping and educational facilities. There is a mainline station providing a regular train service to Waterloo within the hour and excellent access to the A3 and M3 with principal routes to London, the airports and south coast. The surrounding area is noted for its extensive open countryside and National Trust Land with excellent opportunities for walking, riding and country pursuits.
This delightful cottage has a wonderful walled garden to the rear which is lawned with mature trees including a silver birch and well stocked beds and borders either side, providing a wonderful oasis in the heart of this bustling town. There is a courtyard area to the side of the house ideal for relaxing and entertaining with access from the kitchen through double opening doors. In all a pretty location with mature gardens. Car parking is available by resident permit parking in Castle Street and surrounding roads.
