img_20214_30_largeAs we head into the festive season, we could do with that little more room and entertaining areas around the home, which is exactly what this refurbished period home delivers. With open plan living areas and characterful fireplaces, the home presents style and function.

Modern new developments and plush business HQs boost the appeal of the up and coming town of Farnborough, alongside which the charms of this Victorian terrace are simply magnified, as it rests along the southern fringes in North Camp village. The differences between Farnborough town and North Camp village are comparable with this refurbished home that presents charming character features along with contemporary finishes. The attentively refurbished home features versatile living areas to suit modern lifestyles, with original features adding authenticity and individuality.

img_20214_32_largeFarnborough distinguishes itself as a flourishing town with a proud aviation history, thriving business communities and great commuter links. What we do not often see are the discreet and rather rural landscapes of the town, amidst the village of North Camp. North Camp village is not the typical village with plentiful countryside, but is individualised by it’s Victorian High Street, rows of character terraces and good schools. The village is abundant with independent shops, cafes and restaurants that will suffice daily needs. But it is the natural surroundings of the village that give it a modest appeal, such as the playing fields of King George V and Basingstoke canal, which runs along the fringes. With all this being just a short distance from this tastefully finished home, you will never miss an opportunity for quiet walks, a well-brewed morning coffee or whatever else you may fancy. With the station also being a short stroll away, you have excellent rail links to the bustling town of Reading.

It is the sophisticated interior that sets this home apart, which has been completely refurbished with contemporary styles throughout. A bonus loft room and a versatile configuration complete the home perfectly. Solid wood flooring complements the principle living areas of the ground floor, which encompasses two reception rooms. An archway segments the lounge and img_20214_17_largedining room to offer adaptable living spaces that could be kept open plan if desired. A cast iron fireplace within the living room balances well with the contemporary styles and open plan configuration, bringing together a decor that remains sympathetic to the heritage of this period home.

Continuing through to rear of the property, you will find the galley style kitchen that offers a pleasant outlook over the generous garden. Solid wood work surfaces run along the length of the kitchen that extends over 14ft in depth and presents plenty of space for appliances. This multi-aspect room is abundant with light and provides access to the westerly aspect outdoor space, making it ideal for families and entertaining.

In keeping with the style of the home, exposed wood banisters lead up to the spacious first-floor landing which presents plenty of space for a seating area. Meticulous, high specification finishes continue along this floor, adding individuality to both bedrooms and the contemporary family bathroom.
