Currently available to let, The Chapel House at the Convent combines elegance and character, with magnificent and unique features, paired with contemporary, stylish finishing in this recently renovated building.
This unique property formed part of the original chapel in Farnborough’s iconic Convent, which is steeped in history. Founded in 1889 by the nuns of the Congregation of Christian Education, this former convent and later ladies’ boarding and day school has been lovingly refurbished, offering a unique grandeur that has been expertly crafted to retain many of its original features. The overall building has kept its visual appeal, with a grand entrance and clock tower. The extensive proportions combine with vaulted timber ceilings to create bright and airy spaces that are full of character and individuality.
This particular home actually benefits from its own gated entrance, patio, garden and front door to offer a thoroughly secluded residence that was once used as the Convent’s chapel.
Chandeliers, glass panelled staircases and contemporary touches offer an instant glimpse of the luxury styles within the home, that extends across three floors.
The central living space resides on the top floor, an incredible 51ft space, featuring a kitchen, lounge area and plenty of room for an array of furnishings. The kitchen has been finished with sleek, modern styles that contrast wonderfully with the backdrop doors and vaulted timber ceiling that reaches, at its peak, almost 18ft in height. The kitchen also presents an array of integrated appliances, including a double oven, hob, extractor hood, fridge, freezer and a dishwasher. Whilst a central island area blends the kitchen with the remaining space.
An elevated platform rests in the final point, at the front of the room, to present a geometrical lounge area with five outlooks through the characterful chapel windows.
Heading back down through the home, you’ll find three double bedrooms and the bathroom. Both the master and a second bedroom both feature luxurious en suite shower rooms.
A further unique feature within this remarkable property is the ground floor 24ft media room, which offers an ideal space for creating a home cinema, study or gym. No need to use this area to keep utilities out of range as there is a further utility room with laundry appliances along with a large storage cupboard.
In addition to all of this, the location also holds more benefits in store, as you’re within walking distance of Farnborough’s mainline station, reaching London Waterloo in under 40 minutes.
