Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The two properties that form Alresford House are listed Grade II dating from the early to mid 19th century and possess an important heritage presence in the street scene. They have elevations of mellow brick with timber framed sash windows and entrances with pilasters and pediments under largely slate roofs. Whilst both houses have been in office use for many years the accommodation retains the proportions and elegance of its period with rooms with good ceiling height and with a principle south east elevation. The property was once the home of Nigel Temple local historian and author of a number of celebrated books on Farnham. Prior to office use other uses included café / tea rooms and guest house. Planning permission was granted by Waverley Borough Council on 10th February 2015 under reference WA/2014/2211 for change of use from office to residential and for conversion into one flat, three maisonettes and for the creation of two cottages i.e six properties in all with parking for 12 cars. It is considered that the quality of the building, its prominent and convenient location with parking and its space makes Alresford House well suited to either its existing office use, residential, professional or other similar uses subject to any necessary planning permission.


Alresford House occupies a prominent corner position within Farnham town centre Conservation Area at the junction of West Street and Crondall Lane. Lying on the edge of but just outside the prime commercial area there is largely level access to the extensive cultural, shopping and educational facilities offered by Farnham including a leisure / sports centre, the Malting's Art Centre, St Andrew's Parish Church and Waitrose and Sainsbury's. Farnham is a historic former market town renowned for its Medieval and Georgian buildings beneath its castle and park and with a good commuter service to Waterloo. The surrounding countryside is interlaced with footpaths and bridleways renowned for its commons many within the ownership of The National Trust including Frensham Common and Ponds.


Alresford House is bordered by old stone and brick walls on two sides with integral flower beds stocked with various plants, shrubs and hedges. The main entrance to Alresford House is off Crondall Lane and leads neatly around the rear of the main buildings and exits into West Street. 60B has the benefit of a built in car port which allows sheltered entry into the property throughout the year and parking/storage when required. In all the Alresford House development occupies a plot of approximately 0.2 of an acre. (0.08 ha)
