Period, well-presented town house superbly positioned in the heart of Farnham with elegant rooms full of light and rich in original features
The Croft is a rare and beautiful example of an Arts & Crafts house from 1907. This substantial family house is superbly positioned in the heart of Farnham with elegant rooms full of light and rich in original features. The Croft is a well-presented home which retains much of its original period charm yet has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard, providing all the modern comforts and offers a flexibly layout suitable for family living.
The broad entrance hall gives way to two reception rooms and benefits from an exquisite borrowed light at the top of the wide staircase as well a period glazed door to the family kitchen. The first reception room is triple-aspect having its own door to the rear courtyard garden while also enjoying views of the gardens to the front and side. The second reception room has an open fire with its original mantelpiece and also benefits from a large bay window.
The substantial family kitchen dining room has a pillowed limestone floor running the width of the original house and overlooks the pretty courtyard garden at the rear. It is appointed with painted wooden cupboards, a granite worktop, an AGA cooker, and Villeroy & Boch double butler set in a DeVol sink unit with Perrin & Rowe taps. There is ample space for a large dining table.
Adjoined to the family is an original walk-in pantry with original planked shelving and hooks as well as a utility room with original terracotta tiled floor and window to the rear. The utility provides space for a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The utility room also leads to a bright guest cloakroom WC which has a window to the side garden.
From the spacious hall, a broad low-rise staircase - illuminated by the sky from the borrowed light' period glazed window above - leads to a galleried landing serving all the upstairs rooms.
There are four bedrooms each with high ceilings and of balanced proportions. The first bedroom has a large, deep, bay window to the front and an en-suite shower room with Hansgrohe shower, sink and toilet and side window to the east. The second bedroom is triple-aspect and of good proportions. It overlooks the neighbouring rooftops and has an original fitted cupboard and fireplace. The third bedroom is of fine proportions with a triple-mullioned window, an original built-in cupboard and pretty art nouveau fireplace. The fourth bedroom to the front is also well-proportioned and enjoys a central view over the front garden from its wide window above the porch. The spacious family bathroom has three windows overlooking rooftops to the rear with views to Farnham Castle and Park. It has been equipped to a high standard with Lefroy Brooks ceramics, a roll-top bath with Barber Wilsons taps and an Edwardian fitted cupboard. There is a single small step up to a marble plinth with WC.
Subject to design and planning permissions, there may be potential to create further accommodation in the ample loft space.
