Full description

Cedar Court was formally a large Victorian family house set in an enviable position on the southern slopes of Castle Hill at the top of Castle Street. As the property enjoys a slightly elevated position it boasts one of the finest views over the town centre and beyond. The northern boundary is shared with the castle and the eastern boundary is shared with Farnham Park, with a beautiful period wall and gate providing direct access.More recently, and probably in the late 1960‘s or early 1970’s, the property was divided into six leasehold apartments with a communal garden, parking and garaging. The main entrance was retained along with the significant staircase which, in turn, provides access to the apartments. Our client acquired four apartments, forming the entire first, and second, floor of the whole building, and has combined the title to create an enormous multi-roomed property which, as previously mentioned, offers stunning southerly views.  The apartment has South facing balconies on both the first and second floor and enjoys excellent ceiling heights and a feeling of complete grandeur. Unfortunately the property has fallen into disrepair and now requires complete root and branch modernisation.  This will go beyond a cosmetic transformation and will require attention to the main fabric of the building and include the roof, both covering and timbers, along with windows, electrics and plumbing.  It may be feasible to re-divide the property into three separate apartments, all of which would be very generous; however, this would require both planning permission and further permissions from the three remaining lease holders.  We do not believe such permissions will be granted within the time frame the owner requires the property to be sold.
