A classic 1930's detached family house set well back from the road, in about 0.37 of an acre, within a highly prized and much contested residential position. This lovely atmospheric property is shielded from the road by established shrubs and trees hiding this gem from the public gaze. This elegant house offers an excellent array of usable accommodation; whilst at the same time offering tremendous promise and scope for further improvement.  The rear garden is an absolute delight and enjoys a glorious southerly orientation.

The property is set on a prime and much favoured South Farnham road, which offers excellent access to  schools, recreational facilities and, importantly, Farnham town centre.  The Georgian-facaded town centre offers a variety of national and local shops, along with an excellent range of pubs, wine bars, restaurants and cafes.  Also centrally placed is Farnham station which provides a rail link to London Waterloo.
