About this property

  • The plot is situated adjacent to Farnham Castle at the top of Castle Hill, around 500 metres from the centre of Farnham's picturesque Castle Street.

    This is a rare opportunity to acquire a site with planning permission to build a new property with an elevated southerly view across the pretty market town of Farnham.

    The proposal is for the erection of a new dwelling in the location of the existing tennis court utilising an existing access from Old Park Lane.

    The style of the new dwelling closely reflects the architecture of the host dwelling, Bishop's Square, following a Queen Anne ‘rural' style with stone parapet and with stone detailing and three hipped roofs.

    At the first floor there is the living accommodation, comprising an entrance hall, open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area, additional family room, study, utility room and a cloakroom.

    On the lower ground floor there are five double bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, as well as a laundry room and a cinema room or gym.

    Outside mature trees and shrubbery will screen the site from neighbouring properties. The garden surrounds the property on all sides. The plot measures about three quarters of an acre.

This is the best single dwelling plot to become available in a while.
