Truly unique - Furzeham Courthouse is a Grade 2 Listed Double fronted Home situated on a large plot of approximately one-third of an acre and benefits from an adjacent 2 Bedroom Cottage - ideal for letting or for independent family living. From the forward facing rooms superb open south facing views across the town are enjoyed. On entering through the period front door you are greeted by a period home full of character and charm with versatile space presently arranged with a Living Room, Music Room, Cinema Room with bar, Kitchen/Breakfast Room and Boot Room on the ground floor. Upstairs there are 4 Bedrooms - 1 of which is presently used as a Study - a family Bathroom and a Shower Room. Adjacent to the main house is a 2 Bedroom Cottage which, although now in need of updating, would make a super holiday let. At the rear of the property there is a large parking area with access from South Furzeham Road (which has previously had planning permission for a detached dwelling - further information is at the end of our sales particulars). The current owners have owned the Furzeham Courthouse for over 30 years and have made a comfortable and welcoming home which should be viewed to the fully appreciated.
