***NO ONWARD CHAIN*** Church View Cottage is set on the Bath Road in Farmborough and has the most wonderful panoramic views over the village and open countryside beyond
This stone built property is originally believed to date back to the 1600's and has been extended to the front and enjoys a commanding elevated position with attractive views across its own garden, the village of Farmborough and surrounding countryside. The property has not been available in the open market for 26 years and we understand the former owners lived at Church View Cottage for some 42 years, so it a rare opportunity.
The accommodation has a good deal of character and this much loved family home is approached on the ground floor through a sun lounge to an entrance hall from which an open tread staircase rises to the first floor. There is a bay window to the sitting room which has an inglenook fireplace and a study area situated off the living area. There is a good size kitchen/breakfast room furnished with a range of traditional units with a picture window taking full advantage of the delightful views. in addition there is a utility room and cloakroom with wc on the ground floor and a useful workshop just beyond the side entrance door. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.
On the outside the property is approached through double solid timber gates to an extensive gravelled driveway, parking and turning area adjacent to which lies a double garage and an adjacent open fronted garage. The gardens lie to the south of the cottage which are a delightful feature enjoying all day sun and with a good degree of maturity. There may be scope subject to obtaining necessary planning consents for either extension of the cottage or an extension of the garaging to provide a residential annexe or similar ancillary accommodation.
