GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The property sits in grounds of approximately ½ acre and is set back from Templewood Lane. Access is via gates onto a sweeping gravel driveway with parking for numerous cars. At its perimeter, tall trees provide privacy while a lawn, wisteria covered walkway and borders of shrubs and flowers all add colour.
To the rear, the beautifully manicured grounds have a bright southerly aspect and are largely laid to lawn with mature shrubs, trees, wall and fencing maintaining a high degree of privacy. An Indian sandstone patio runs across the length of the rear of the house providing an ideal entertaining area. Cleverly separated from the lawn by low privet hedging is the outdoor tiled swimming pool (with removable fence) and York Stone surround with a recently installed boiler, along with changing room, shower and WC.
A gate leads through to the side garden which is laid to lawn (currently used as a separate play area) and path providing access to the front of the property.
The property is located close to the heart of Farnham Common and is within easy walking distance of its fine pubs, restaurants and local amenities including a Sainsburys, Costa and Lloyds Pharmacy. The ancient woodland of Burnham Beeches is close by and is ideal for countryside walks.
