Atmospheric cottage of historical importance.
Odiham was an important royal town in the Middle Ages. The buildings of the medieval settlement survive in considerable numbers, many behind frontages of later date. 7 Farnham Road is an example. Its core is the hall section of an important and well-preserved medieval house, of which the early 14th-century cross wing survives as 6 Farnham Road. The hall is believed to be a re-building of about 1410 of an earlier hall. No.7 also has fabric of about 1600, which is when the medieval house was divided into three cottages (6, 7 and 8 Farnham Road; currently listed grade II). In the 1840s it was extended towards the street and towards the garden. It was comprehensively restored in the 1970s and upgraded then and more recently. The front door of no.7 opens into a usefully broad hallway which leads to the living room with a wide inglenook fireplace, a compact bathroom, and to the staircase. The kitchen is reached from the living room. The kitchen has a back door that provides access out to the garden. Massive upper timbers of the early 15th-century hall give the deep upstairs room a unique and remarkable character.
The garden, to the rear, is wider than the cottage, long, and slightly angled. It has much charm, an interesting variety of well-established perennials and small trees, and a pleasing sense of enclosure and privacy.
Agents Note; There is a flying freehold.
