Characterful, 3-bed, detached house in a very sought after village on the Surrey/Hampshire border. Great Conversion potential. Next door house available to buy from same owner.


The Retreat:


A characterful, 3-bedroom, detached family house with high ceilings in an extremely sought after village on the Surrey/Hampshire border. Great potential for extension to the front, side and above. Also the next door property, Stars End, is for sale with the same owners. A short drive to 45-minute train connections to London. The property is over 100 years old (but not a listed building) and the walls are built with original, traditional Farnham brick. It used to be the village meeting hall. After then being used as the village doctor's surgery it was converted into a unique residential property about 8 years ago. and was refurbished to a high standard with a new spacious travertine tiled bathroom a new high quality kitchen with granite work tops and new WC room. There is parking for 4-6 parking in the drive. The property is set back from the road and is extremely quiet. The address is The Retreat, Pankridge Street, Crondall GU10 5RG, Hampshire. The zoopla estimate for the property is £477,000.00

Fantastic Potential:

A precedent has been set for bungalows in the street to be extended to the back and for an additional storey to be added above. Preliminary meetings with the planning officers make it clear that there should be no issues with a standard extension upwards (adding one more floor to each house) and extending to the side and to the front, up to the line of the adjacent houses which means quadrupling the size.

The next door property, Stars End, is for sale from the same owners. For details contact the owner. If both properties were purchased a huge house with gardens to the back and rear would be an option – or two very large properties.
