Tenure: Freehold

This is a particularly elegant
period town house (Grade II* listed),
understood to date from the 16th century
with classic early 18th century Queen Anne
mellow brick elevations and is one of the
most handsome properties in the town.
Within the last year the house has been
carefully and extensively restored and
enlarged to now provide a highly successful
marriage of period features and
contemporary living providing the best of
both worlds. Under detailed professional
supervision, improvements include
re-wiring, re-plumbing, timber treatment,
new bathrooms and landscaping of the
grounds. The enlargement has created a
stunning, vaulted single storey Kitchen/
Orangery to the rear with a 27’3’’ x 16’8’’
kitchen with living area leading into the
garden with large casement doors and
windows providing an amazing amount of
light and giving the feeling of house and
garden merging together. The kitchen is
equipped with the latest electric Aga,
handmade units and Miele equipment.
There are also new adjacent utility and
laundry areas. The ceiling heights
throughout are more generous than in
many properties of this age and the house
exhibits many genuine original period
features which include a fully panelled
Dining Room, exposed internal timbers,
shuttered sash windows, ornate plasterwork
and fireplaces and some very fine old brass
door furniture.
An unusually comfortable and versatile
house with real charm and one of the best
examples of its kind in Farnham.

The house occupies a prime position set back towards the upper end of Castle Street, widely regarded as one of the country’s finest Georgian high streets and renowned for the nearby historic 12th Century Castle and outstanding period houses. In the heart of the town, and within the conservation area, there is easy access to the extensive cultural, shopping and educational facilities offered by Farnham including several highly rated schools,
Leisure/Sports centre Waitrose, Sainsburys
and the excellent Maltings Arts Centre.
The main line station provides fast trains to
Waterloo within the hour and there is
excellent access to the A3 and M3 with
principal routes to London, various airports
and the south coast. The surrounding area is
noted for its extensive open country and
National Trust land with excellent
opportunities for walking riding and
country pursuits. There is access from the garden
to a path that leads directly into the superb 320 acre
Farnham Park.

Gardens. Unusually for Castle Street, No 45
sits back from the road with a very pretty,
yorkstone paved and planted garden

mellow old brick walls to all sides. The area
immediately adjacent to the building is laid
with handsome yorkstone paving, with
various areas for sitting out, and leads on to
a long sweep of lawn with further paved
pathways, stocked herbaceous borders
together with some fine ornamental items
including acer, magnolia and wisteria.
A rear gateway provides access to the
adjacent Farnham Park.
