Character and versatility in Farnborough

August 13, 2020

Following lockdown, there are two elements that feature at the top of a buyers’ list of requirements – a garden and a home office environment. 

This unique cottage on Chapel Street, Farnborough, just a short walk from the station, delivers on both fronts, available for sale at £340,000.

When it comes to versatility in space, this home has plenty to offer. with the ground floor presenting a living room, separate dining room and dining space within the kitchen.

An extension, plus some carefully considered enhancements have created further space in this home, including the spacious ground floor bathroom which was added approximately 5 years ago.

Both of the bedrooms on the first floor offer good sized doubles, but here’s where you’ll find the secret bonus to this property, with the addition of an attic room, accessible from the second bedroom with a fixed staircase.

This additional space would make an ideal home office, teenage escape, or guest accommodation.

There is additional planning permission to extend the attic further, details of which can be provided on request or visible with Rushmoor planning online.

From a presentation aspect, the current owners have created a welcoming interior, stylishly combining the character features of the home, such as the fireplace/recessed storage in the lounge, with contemporary tones and fittings.

The outdoor space does not disappoint. To the front, driveway parking is available to the side of the home, with space for approximately two vehicles comfortably. A side gate leads from here to the southerly aspect rear garden. This outdoor area can also be conveniently accessed from the French doors in the kitchen, providing a sociable flow for summer entertaining.

With both decking and artificial turf in the garden, you get the best of both worlds; a private, sunny outdoor space to enjoy, without the maintenance! If you’re green-fingered there’s a great canvas to get to work on without any ‘deforestation’ beforehand.

When it comes to location, you’re just a short walk from Farnborough North Station, offering great links into the cities, along with the convenience of a direct line to Gatwick. A selection of pubs and schools are also within a short walking distance.
