Property Description


Situated on a quiet country lane is this quite beautiful Victorian Cottage, built in 1873 when originally part of Purton House.

This attached character home must be viewed not only because of the stunning period features, but the cosy feel this family home offers throughout, while enjoying a picturesque, secluded and south facing garden of around 80ft.

Internally the cottage briefly includes a sitting room with exposed wooden flooring and panelled walls, a bay window plus a stunning feature fireplace with wood burner. There is also a dining room which again has a Victorian style fireplace, a utility, a ground floor cloakroom plus a lovely kitchen with modern units, granite worktops, space for a small table and chairs with double doors opening out to your garden.

On the first floor is a stunning double aspect master bedroom with a wall of fitted wardrobes, plus two more bedrooms with original fireplaces. The stylish bathroom has a Victorian style bath with feet, a fired earth four poster Victorian style basin plus a separate tiled shower cubicle.

To the outside the delightful garden has a patio, is mainly laid to lawn, private and secluded with a summerhouse, greenhouse (both have power) a vegetable patch and garden pond.

Accessed via either the road or garden is a detached garage with double electric front doors and two parking spaces in front.

This already beautiful cottage offers further room to grow, with the opportunity to extend to the rear of the kitchen, creating a more open space and a fourth bedroom to the first floor subject to the normal planning consents.

Farnham Royal and Farnham Common are well served by road and rail links with the larger neighbouring towns of both Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield providing direct rail access into London Marylebone in around 20 minutes. In 2018/19 Crossrail at nearby Burnham will provide commuters with easy access across central London to Canary Wharf. The motorway network of the M40, M25 and M4 are all also within easy reach.

The property is walking distance to the popular Emperor Public House plus is within easy reach of The Broadway in Farnham Common with its local amenities which include Tesco, Sainsbury's and Costa. The beautiful Burnham Beeches are also only a short walk away.

Renowned for its excellent grammar schooling along with a range of state and independent schools including Caldicott in Farnham Common, Dair House in Farnham Royal and Maltmans in Gerrards Cross, the area also has its own excellent Infant and Junior Schools which are both walking distance to the property.
