Chapel House is set back from the road in the heart of this desirable village which is renowned for having a vibrant and thriving village community with a notable range of local amenities, including 2 well known public houses, 2 golf courses, church, doctors surgery and village school, all of which are in easy reach. The elegant Georgian town of Farnham is approximately 4 miles away, and offers many exclusive shops, pavement cafes, flower filled courtyards and a mainline station, which offers a fast regular service into Waterloo.
Chapel House is a striking conversion of a former church, dating back to 1879 and converted in the early 1980's. The property has been cleverly planned to create well proportioned flexible living accommodation with a light and airy atmosphere. There are a host of noteworthy features including an alarm, water softener, aerial points to all of the downstairs rooms, satellite dish/roof aerial, double glazing throughout and gas fired central heating via radiators with a pressured hot water tank. Over recent years the property has benefitted from a new Vestry roof in 2016, and all upstairs double glazing units have been upgraded and replaced. Our client has informed us that the property was tanked in May 2014 which came to a total of around £20,000, and is still under guarantee, and his insurance including flood risk is approximately £650 per annum via Axa.
Undoubtedly one of the main features of the property is that it offers exceptionally flexible accommodation with the ground floor being able to be completely re-modelled to create an almost self contained space for teenagers.
On the ground floor there are 2 double bedrooms, a family bathroom, utility room and a useful sitting room/games room.
With a separate entrance from the house is the old Vestry which has been converted and has it's own shower room and w.c. and could be used as a self contained bedroom or home office.
On the first floor there is the impressive vaulted drawing room/dining room with a feature floor to ceiling window and a large open fireplace with a brick hearth. Our client has had a quote to install a wood burner at a cost of approximately £3,500.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of cream units under black granite work surfaces, a Butler sink and integrated appliances. An ornate spiral staircase connects all floors together. There is a mezzanine level above the dining room incorporating the main bedroom, a shower room and a large wardrobe.
To the front of Chapel House there is parking for several vehicles and a double car port.
The rear walled courtyard garden has been attractively landscaped to create a secluded environment and backs onto a small brook, a subsidiary from the River Hart. Outside the house there is a patio area with a raised water feature and brick pathway leading to a covered area with a built in bar-b-que. The garden is bordered by well stocked flower beds with a feature pond.
Agents Notes:The property is located in the Crondall Conservation area and benefits from gas fired central heating with the boiler located in the utility room.
